GREGORY  CIVIL KNGINKKK ami KK ITU-ill  COLUMIRA LAND SURVEYOR  Star Building Princeton  Last week our Keremeos correspondent referred' to the nction of the  customs collector at Keremeos in turning hack a gang of navvies who were  on their way to the V. V. it E. work  camps a hove Tulameen because they  hart not the necessary amount of cash  in their wardrobes to permit them to  enter,' and reason was Riven for the  action on the part of the officer. The  Gazette has had an opportunity to  verify the story in some data ohtained  at Princeton. These men who were  fired came down to Princeton in  droves with insufficient cash to pay  their way and the hotels had to take  them in and feed them. This was  neither profitable nor agreeable to the  hoteliuen and they complained to  government agent Hunter who called  up the contractors at the front and  received the simcy re-ply that Princeton could do as they liked with the  men for so far as they the contractors  were concerned it didn't interest them.  This callous reply was construed as  bearing out largely the men's stories  ahout collusion hetween the contractors and employment agencies and he  forthwith passed the word on to the  collector and intimated what it was  desirable to do with the next hatch of  men that came in. When the bosses  up at the front found out that this  hunch of navvies had heen turned  hack they began to squeal and they  are squealing yet. Possibly they will  know how lo use the next gang they  get.  The story is still further confirmed  by the following incident at the coast:  "Vancouver, March 7.���������Sonie sensational 'disclosures about life in rail-,  wii'y"- ca nips' ''in1 which "ft"���������'whs-���������" charged-'  that certain foremen were conspiring  with labor agents to keep starting up  new gangs and discharging the old  ones in order to make business for, the  employment offices, were made this  morning hy two witnesses before the  labor commissioners. W. T. Thompson, a camp cook, and W. A. Roberts,  a camp fhinkey, were called hy J. H.  MeVety, who with R. A. Dunn and J.  Wilkinson, represent the British Columbia Federation of Labor and other  labor organizations. Roberts said he  was told by a foreman that he got a  rakeoff of half the foes from the employment agent, while Thompson testified ;to a conversation he had overheard  hetween a camp foreman and a timekeeper in a camp at Kettle Valley.  "I heard the foreman say." said  Roberts, "that gang of fifteen Bohunks  has been here 11 days. I had better  let them go. "We want some more so  that the agent can 'divvy' ".  The name of the foreman Roberts  gave to the commission, hut he did  not know the name of the labor agent,  except that it was a Spokane firm."

News-Advertiser  At  midnight Saturday,   when   the  committee of  the House of Commons  rises  and  the   House   adjourns   over  Sunday,    the    Opposition   will    have  spent  a week  of parliamentary   time  heading    off     one     clause     of     the  Navy  Bill.     This is  the clause  which  authorizes   the payment of $35,000,000  for  throe dreadnoughts.     The whole  power of the Laurier party at Ottawa  is concentrated on a . fight against this  proposition, which has twice heen approved hy a substantial majority of  members elected less than two years  ago.  In Great Britain this attitude of the  Liberal leader will he harder to understand than it is here. Canadians, who  have been acquainted with the political career of Sir Wilfrid from the  start, have always taken with prudent  reservation his declarations respecting  the British Empire. ��������� They read them  and hear them always with a recollection of his equally strong declarations  in favor of the separation .of Canada  from the Empire. But in England Sir  Wilfrid's protestations have been  taken at their full value, whether he  promised Canada free trade or assistance to imperial defence. They re-  meuihei* in England how the Laurier  Administration sunt troops to Africa.  They do not remember the incidents  in connection with tlie despatch of the  first contingent.  The attitude of Sir Wilfrid and his'  party is a surprise, to the British admirers of the former Premier, whose  imposing figure Inw .i-S-en so familiar  to them at jubilee festivals, coronations and other Imperial spectacles,  and whose'language on various occasions . Juii?..-Jed ; tlieni^'JO: expect.other,  things. It is known in Great Britain  that the Conservative party in Canada  did not think much of Sir Wilfrid's  navy policy of 1010. It did not seem  adequate: or eit'ective, and tney offered  amendments, including the. proposition now before Parliament. But Sir  Wilfrid was trying to do something,  and when the Conservatives could not  get their own way they allowed the  Government measure to pass without  much delay.  It would be expected that the Canadian  Liberal party,  having stated its  objections   to   Mr.   Borden's  measure,  and having divided the house on their  own   rival  propositions,   would allow  the   majority   to  act.    There was the  more   reason   for  this  since   the   late  Government  had heen in cordial relations  with  the Asquith Ministry,  by  whom   the Borden  navy   plan   is  recommended.     If the British Administration   had  belonged   to   the   group  which   Liberals   are   pleased ��������� to   call  ���������'Jingoes,"we might expect the Laurier  Ministry     to   i;egard   the   Admiralty  memorandum with distrust.     But the  Asquith Ministry is Liberal.    Some of  its members are even Radical,   and all  claim   to   be friends of peace and opposed  to   militarism.     They find the  attitude of Sir Wilfrid and his friends  a   great   surprise   and   mortification.  When the First Lord of the Admiralty  said that the Canadian Government's  offer  was  like the grasp of a friend's  right hand  at a   critical time,   he did  not anticipate   that his more intimate  Canadian  associate   would   strive   to  break that grasp.  PAULINE JOHNSON DEAD  The Indian Poetess Dies From Cancer in  Vancouver Hospital  Vancouver, B. C, March 7.���������Miss E.  Pauline Johnson, the Indian poetess,  passed away this morning at the Butte  street hospital in this city at 11:30  o'clock. Her death was not unexpected, as for the last foitnight she had  been slowly sinking. She had rallied,  however, and it was not until Tuesday  that it was recognized she could hardly live through the week. Her last  moments were fully conscious. Her  sister, Miss Eva Johnson, was her constant companion for the last few days,  though she was resting when the end  finally came.  Walter McRaye, who had been Miss  Johnson's financing manager for some  years, was with her at the end. She  will he buried at Stanley park, with  Vancouver'.-, uther celebrities. Her  request was that the remains he cremated and the ashes buried at Si wash  Rock.  TIT FOR TAT  Londoners to Give These Hussies a Dose  V of Their Own Medicine  London, March 7.���������Active measures  of retaliation upon suffragettes are  threatened by the members of a new  league formed to suppress violent  tactics. "Every act of violence perpetrated by the militants," says the  league's circular, "will be answered by  attacks on private houses or properties  ot". militants. This league does not  quarrel with women on account of  their desiring enfranchisement, but  because of their unwarranted criminal  attacks upon person and property. If  any member of the league -is'summoned for damage done or fined for-obstructing, the cost will be met by a  levy on the members. The levy will  he very small in a.nycase as the membership of the league which has been  in existence only a few days, is already 500."  THE REGISTRY OFFICE  Penticton Board of Trade Make a Strong  Case for , Location of The  Office There  The Penticton Board .of Trade have  prepared a strong case for the location  of the registry office there. A map of  the district to be served hy the proposed new office and the favorable  location of the town at the foot of the  lake is very apparent, both from its  central location and the ease of access  hy which it may lie reached from  different parts of the distiict when  once the railways, now in course of  construction, are completed.  The hoard also passed the following  resolution:  Whereas, in the interest of'public  convenience, and tho expediting of the  registering of titles and charges hy  solicitors, agents and individuals, it  would appear to be necessary to have  a new legistry office and distiict within the territory now served by the  Ivainloops registry office.  And whereas the growth of the  southern portion of this di.-trict' has  been very rapid the [last few yeais,  and promises to he quite as rapid in  the years to come, owing to gieat  railroad, ngrioultnial, mining, lumbering and   fruit growing  development.  Therefore, he it resolved, that this  Penticton Board of Trade request the  Provincial government to* establish a  land registry office at Penticton, and  suggest that the boundaries of the  new district be as follows: on the  north by the fifth parallel; on tinsmith by the International boundary;  on the east by the Kootenay district:  and on the west by the New Westminster district.  In support of this resolution we desire to put forward the following  claims. -. '  1. That iu view of the development  that is taking place in the Grand  Forks distiict. a. great deal of land  registry business will result, and that  owing  to the  prospective  early  cotn-  IT'S YOUR MOVE  MARCH ROD AND GUN  Rod and Gun for March, published  by W. J. Taylor, Limited, Woodstock,  Ont., is out with a varied and entertaining list of contents which include  the following: "After Caribou with  the Utchekats" hy R. J.

The issue is.attrnctively illustrated and should he read by all sportsmen and lovers of outdoor life.  The Hedley Gold Mining Company  that bete xont of the Siinilkaiueen  Star, has again been sinning, and although our esteemed cotem reminds  us from time to time that its editor  has turned his back upon the old beliefs and the old orthodoxy, he still  clings to the doctrine of vicarious  culpability which would "visit the iniquities of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation." At all events he is determined  that the editor of the Gazette shall be  brought up on the Star's polemical  carpet to answer for the offence of the  Hedley Gold Mining Company in digging up gold instead of copper. The  Star says:  "A letter received from Hedley  states that the Hedley Gold Mines  Co. reduced the wages of miners  and millmen 25 cents per day from  the 1st inst. The reason assigned  is a jolt downward in the price of  copper. There must be a mistake,  as the H.G.M. Co.'s product is only  gold���������that filthy, yellow stuff. An  explanation is in order hy the local  'mineral' editor.  Now the Star takes no cognizance  of the fact that in the month of September in the year of grace 1012 tlie  wages in most of the metalliferous  mines through British Columbia, took  a jump of 25 cents a day because the  price of copper had gono a-soaring.  "There must have heen a mistake  then, as the H.G.M. Co's product is  only gold. An explanation is in "order  from the Princeton mineral editor,"  and as that was the prior event it  comes in for the prior explanation.  The floor is yours brother; speak out  ao we can all hear you.  pletion of the Kettle Valley Railway,  Penticton- is inure conveniently situated to serve this section than any  location that has seriously been considered or mentioned for the proposed  registry office.  2. That owing to the Kettle Valley  Railwny making a direct connection,  Penticton would be the most convenient place for the Greenwood dis-  tiict. ���������       *  3. And that owing to the large  tract of undeveloped land between  Penticton and the boundary line which  will likely he'placed on the market at  no distant date, meaning as it does.,  numerous transfers, and many registrations, Penticton would be the most  convenient location to serve this territory.  4. And that owing to the bnilding;  of the Kettle Valley line to the west,  and the consequent quick despatch ot"  mails, the Princeton district would he  best served hy a registry office being  located at Penticton.  5. And that owing to its location  Penticton would he the best point to  serve the Okanagan Lake district.  Therefore we most urgently request  the government to arrange for the  building of a registry office at Penticton with the least possible delay.  NOW WE SAVVY  PAINT IT ROSY  ' Magistrate Shaw of Vancouver committed a woman on a charge of fortune-telling. Possibly she had not  made the horologe sufficiently rose-  hued regarding futurities on Vancouver real estate.  Newfoundland has followed Canada's  example and is asking the British  Admiralty for advice as to how they  can most effectively contribute to  Empire defence according to their  means.  Not very long ago the Gazette was  struck with a most extraordinary conclusion on the naval question in the  editorial column of the Star, and to  make sure that we were not up against  a Fenian or a Dutchman instead of a  good British subject we propounded a  little question to which we invited a  simple yes or no. Well, the answer  appeared in hist week's Star and it  was really the funniest looking yes, or  no, we ever saw. After reading it one  felt Unit he was about as successful in  locating the whereabouts of the Star  editor as the darkey who attempted to '  put his finger on a flea. But fortunately in another corner of the Star  was a. key to the whole situation. It  read as follows:  "Notice���������No more rabbits will betaken for subscriptions to Star.  The news imp complains of a  jumping sideways when a prolonged diet of them is indulged in."  That's what was  the  matter all  the.  time.   Too much rabbit.

Nevertheless he  has to learn the li-sson. that no matter  how fair a man may strive to he he is  sure to meet those who will find fault.  Oom Paul has passed "If the scene but  his provincialism and Dutch prejudice  survives in many of tlie Boer rep re  sehtatives, and Herzog appears' lo lie  the. most aggressive of them.

EDITORIAL COMMENTS  The people of Canada' want parcel  post, but Sir Wilfrid Laurier would  lather waste the time of the House ii\  senseless fully than give the government of the day a chance to pass  that or any other useful   legislation.  In 1903 Sir Wilfrid in introducing  his G.T.I1, railway policy soleinnly  tohl pail in men t that all the road was  to cost the parliament of Canada was  something less than $15,(J()0,(K)() and it  has already cost in cold cash upwards  of $270,1)00.900. Mow much dependence therefore should lie placed in  his estimate of the cost of a two fleet  unit navv for Canada;-1  The endurance tost in the House of  Commons was an incident ihat will go  down in history as one of the most  ���������'foolish things the Liheial party in  Canada have perpetrated and that is  saying a great deal. If they really  thought the naval vote proposed by  the government lo be wrong, there  was no need whatever to waste nti  hour of the country's time trying lo  prevent it'in that asinine way when  they had the entire control in their  own hands by simply having the Senate with its Liberal majority throw it  out.  South Africa, is considering the  question of assisting in the matter of  Imperial defence, and Premier Botha,  like Mr. Borden, has gone on record  that the first step in that direction  should be to consult the British Admiralty and le.'iin from them in what  direction assistance would he most  i-fl'i.-ctive. and most acceptable. Premier Botha is a soldier who has proven  to the world that his views on the.  subject of defence are of lhe highest  outer and of the safest kind lo follow.  While it is possible that there might  be local conditions which would tend  to modify the course that would he  niosL suitable for South Africa and  make it differ in some respect from  that which would he best for Canada,  yet he has recognized the wisdom of a  common starting point and that point  is to first learn the views of the Admiralty. Such a course, however,  would never appeal to a man of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier's wilfulness and self-  suf/iciericy.  The death of Miss Pauline Johnson,  the   Indian   poetess,   while  not unexpected,   will   be   learned   with  sincere  rc-uret throughout Canada and in other  parts of  the Empire where her strong  imperialism is known ami appreciated.  Especially  in her  native  province   of  Ontario vvheie   both she and her illustrious  forbears were   names that  will  and   do   grace   the  pages   of  history,  honor  will  be  done   to  her memory,  for in   honoring so  true and   talented  a  daughter   of   the   Empire,' Canada  will   only be  honoring -herself.    Asa.  poetess as   well as a 'Writer of prose of  a high order, her work will live.    Fortunately   too,   she  followed for years  the calling  of a. public reader  anil lecturer  by   which   means   she .became  more closely and  intimately acquainted with   the people in all   parts of bhis'  great .Dominion;  and-  it   is  doubtful  whether   there   is   another   Canadian  writer as well   known to the people, of  her  own   country   as   she.      'High   as  her social   attainments were���������and she  was   honored on various   occasions  by  the   Royal   family���������she  never   for   a  moment   forgot her own race,  nor did  her sympathy   and love for them ever  fail.     For them  she performed a great  service.      She    sang   into   the   literature of the country   a distinct i ve   note  for them and left that literature richer  hy gems   of wit-i-d   mysticism,   born of  the Indian mind  and illustrative of its  closeness to the heart of Nature's sell",  ft is   pleasing to   note that  the people  of Vancouver among   whom she spent  the last, few years of her life are cognizant of the   honor and   distinction she  conferred   upon   them,   and    that   her  ashes will   rest at the   foot of "Siwash  Rock"  which she  has made   to live in  the   legends   her   pen   wove, about   it.  The   writer speaks   of   her   from   an  acquaintance    extending   over   many  years   and knows   of none   whose   Ini  pcriulism struck a deeper or truer note  than hers.  *?

Ciunulii  You men and women who buy  things, let this sink in. You are  better men and women because of  advertising. You eat more wholesome food. You wear better clothes.  Your home is better furnished. You  have cleaner and more sanitary  houses. You read better books and  magazines. You seek more healthful amusements.  Your whole standard of living has  been raised ��������� and why? Because  the men who make these better  things are telling you that you will  be more comfortable, happier and  healthier if you use these higher  grade goods.  It is advertising that makes it  possible for you to buy "the best"  right at your corner store. It is  advertising that encourages the  inventor to make new comforts and  new utilities and enables you to buy  them almost immediately after they  are perfected.  J. J. Hill says this "high living"  costs more. True for J. J.���������but  it is worth more. And leaving the  cost aside, do you want to go back  to buying jam out of a pail, oatmeal  out of a barrel, raisins out of sticky  boxes, or tea exposed in an open  chest?  Do you regret the money you  paid for a Player Piano?  Would you forego the new style  razor?  Isn't a Tungsten worth a thousand  candles?  Would you now be enjoying these  if enterprising manufacturers had  not told you about them in their  advertisements?  HI  NOTICE  Isn't life brighter because we have new  and higher standards of living?  Let us thank advertising for it.  SIMII.KAMKKX I.AN'Il DISTRICT  WHTUICT Ol''  YATB  r-PAICK .Votieo Hint I.

Jack Corrigan went to Spokane the  ���������end of the week.  Homer McLean went over to thu  Okanagan last week.  Mrs. G. H. Sproule its leaving i'or the  ���������coast this week to visit for ;i- few  weeks with friends there.  Frank Dollein'ore returned from  Vancouver on Thursday last where he  had gone a fortnight before.  And now it is up to everybody who  is entitled lo a vote in B. C. to See  that he gets his name on the new lists.  Dune. Woods left for Suimnerland  on Monday after spending the winter  in Hedley where he has been looking  after his local interests.  Oonstable Sproule went up to Princeton last week owing to the" illness of  constable Rodger? who is in the hospital.    He returned on Saturday.  Mrs.    Schisftler   and    daughter   of  ���������-Princeton  accompanied hy  the infant  dn lighter of Louis  Marcotte'of  Coal-  niont were   visiting   last   week   with  Mrs. R. J. Edinond. ,_  Members of the Hedley Golf CInb  are reminded that the annual meeting  takes place this (Thursday) evening at  ���������8 p. in. in the Similkameen hotel. A  good attendance is requested.   '  A. T. Hoswill, who was in charge of  French's store during his absence on  the coast, went to Princeton last week  where his wife was ill, buthe is expected back again in a few days.  .Judge Brown held court in Princeton last week. It was a special meeting of the court and the principal  business was in cases arising out"of  the Gold Plate Mines Company affair.  The dance to be given under the  auspices of the golf club has been fixed  for Monday night next (St. Patrick's  Day) in French's hall. Good music  is being provided. Everybody welcome.  - Felix Susanne (Indian) killed a big  cougar down at Ellen creek last week,  and annexed the bounty, which is now  sufficiently liberal to make it worth  ���������any person's while to kill one whenever a chance presents itself.  There is evidence that the spring is  likely to he quite early after all. Plowing was in progress at Hedley the end  of last week; some of" the lawns are  showing quite a green tint and buds  on the fruit trees are pretty well advanced. ��������� In fact there is a little apprehension that they may have made  a little too much progress and are in  danger of being nipped if another cold  snap should come along.  F. H. French returned from the  coast on Friday last. He didn't get  ���������any further than Vancouver and  found the time at his disposal all too  short to get around, and see all he  wanted to see. While there he met  various Hedleyites, including the newly married, the long married and the  not married at all. He didn't bring  the new auto back with him, .but when  he got off the train' in Hedley and saw  the snow all gone, the ground dryi ng  up fast, with the sun shining and the  meadow larks piping, he doubtless concluded that the new auto is already  overdue.  L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., is expected  in the valley in a few weeks, to make  his customary spring tour through his  constituency. There is a big vote to  be expended this year and he will  doubtless want to see that no part of  the riding requiring immediate aid  will be overlooked. Most of governments are blamed for witholding their  more generous appropriations until  the eve of a general election but the"  Similkameen is seen to fare as well or  better hi the first session after an election as before it. Mr. Shatford does  not expect to leave on his trip to the  old country until about the beginning  of June.  Grandma Pinto, the aged Klootch-  ni'in residinur on the reserve closely  adjoining the town, is at present in a  very low weak state and is not expected lo survive many days. Her ailment  is tuberculosis, the scourge of the red-  man, and it is a pity that arrangement was not completed years ago by  which aged people of her race might  secure the care and attention which  they should have. Their broad fertile  acres that are still in a state of nature  and doing no good to the Indians  themselves not* anybody else could be  made to place every Indian on the  reserve in a position of comfort and  take care of the old people in their  declining years.  The-financial statement of the Bank  of B.N.A. which went before the general meeting recently held at the head  office in London is to hand and shows  a very prosperous year. While the  annual dividend of 8% which they pay  to  shareholders is not  as large  as the  shareholders of many other banks  vote themselves, itis'donbtful whether  there is another bank as generous to  their employees a's the B. N.A. people  arc, for they paid in bonus to the fttaff  during the year the handsome sum of  $35,000. They also trans-1 erred $150,-  000 to reserve out of the year's profit  as well as $75,000 to premises account.  This is indeed ii fine'" showing for this  solid old institution.  MIND WHERE YOU FLY  Britain   Objects   to   Having   Her  Yards Spied Upon  Back  London, March 8.���������Under authority  conferred by the Aerial Navigation  Act, the Home Secretary has issued  orders prohibiting foreign military or  naval air craft from passing 'over any  portion of the United Kingdom or  territorial waters except on invitation  and by permission of the government.  All other foreign air craft coming,to  the United Kingdom are requested  first to obtain clearance papers from  the British consuls. Landing will be  restricted to certain areas of the coast,  where the air pilot must report to the  authorities and obtain a permit for the  continuance of the voyage. They are  prohibited from passing over cei tain  districts in which are* included the  military and naval stations. Anyone  infringing the regulations, it is announced, is liable to be fired on, and  the offence is punishable by six  months' imprisonment or a fine of  $1000. Aeronauts guilty of espionage  are liable to seven years' penal servitude.  PflLfl6&  Uveru, Feed k Sale Stables  TIKDLEY   13. O.  IT A good stock of Horses and Rigs on  Hand.

RUN ON BANK  Pea-Soups in Montreal Get Excited  Montreal, March 5.���������With a rush of  densely packed humanity, the rush on  the City & District bank, which started here yesterday, started again with  renewed force when .the bank and its  13 branches opened its doors this  morning. An array of clerks with  bank '.bill piled high in front of them  met the advancing avalanche with  smiling faces, counted out bills by the  thousands all morning and greeted all  comers pleasantly.  By noon the run on the head office  of the bank had dwindled down perceptibly. The sight of th'e hank directors inviting the people in and of the  paying tellers handing out $1000  bills: "with complacency staggered the  panic-stricken crowd and hundreds  went to other wickets and re-deposited their accounts.  "Itis absolutely senseless this run",  declared officials of the Bank of Montreal. The latter is prepared to back  the City & District to any extent in  this "matter.  HOTEL SIMILKAMEEN,  HEDLEY, B.

GENERAL NEWS  Disaster befell the Australian Antarctic expedition under Dr. Mawson.  The expedition was not in search of  the pole but solely for scientific purposes.  The banaiia crop in Australia has  been wrecked by Hoods and wiiids.  The citrus, cotton, maize and sugar  crop's have also suffered severely.  The Canadian courts have all decided that a. railway is responsible hot  only for injuries sustained in accidents  but also for illness contracted by passengers en route where it can be shown  that negligence on the part of the railway or its employees contributed to  the cause of the illness. When decision was given against them in the  lower courts the Railway carried it to  the higher courts and these sustained  the original finding.  'Twelve hundred London waifs were  banqnetted at the expense of donors in  British Columbia coast cities who collected the funds for that purpose. The  City of London was asked to do , the  honors and the Lord Mayor and Lady  Mayoress performed the fumction in  person.  Hon. Dr. Roche, of the Dominion  cabinet, is in Rochester, Minn., where  he was to submit to an operation.  T. H. Svet's post office and general  store at Fruitvale near Yinir was destroyed by fire.  Dr. Young, Minister of Education,  has gone on a trip into the northern  interior of the province.  Toronto had a temperature of.six  below zero on the 7th of -March and  railways had difficulty in keeping their  lines open in the face of a howling  blizzard.  Democrats declare their intention to  fight for free food from Canada.  Dr. Fiiedinan is to demonstrate his  new consumption cure in Montreal  where he has been invited.  Nebraska Legislature is introducing  a law forbidding the sale of Canadian  land in that state except under conditions which well nigh render it impossible.

There is just as good Avork being done in country  offices as in the cities, and often as poor work in the cities  as in the worst country shops  In Prices the country office can do just as well for  you and you save the express. The city printer may get  his stock a trifle cheaper by saving the local freight, but  his rent and other overhead expenses are higher, and in  the end lie is obliged to charge as much or more than the  country printer will charge for the same class of work.  ���������43  fa  ������'���������'���������  <!;  <.;���������  4  4 I  i  4  <l  4  THE   JOLLY  GAZETTE  is prepared to  do any kind of work that may come along.
