Go to the  Hedley Pool Room  and Barber Shop  For an Easy Shave and  a Stylish Hair - Cut or  a   Game   of  On Inquiry from the Gazette Mr.  and Mrs. Forbes relate that it was on  Saturday the 14th that they arrived  in San Francisco and took rooms on  Mission Staeet opposite the new Post  Office, intending to remain^in the city  until Friday 20th. when'.- they would  B. G. proceed, by boat to .'Victoria. They  spent three days sight-seeing'" about  the city before the trouble came and  during this time had an opportunity of  seeing San Francisco in all its old-time  beauty and pride���������the pride which  this time went before the fall. Fortunately the quarters they had chosen  was situated in a frame block.  Early in the morning of Wednesday  18th, although clear daylight, they  were roused from sleep with the first  tremors of the earthquake, which Mr.  Forbes had no chffieulty in recognizing for this was not altogether a new  experience to him,as he had during a  former residence in San Francisco experienced seismic shocks. He at once  got out of bed and expecting that the  shock would increase in violence cautioned Mrs Forbes to remain in bed  as the safer place until they both noticed a large plate glass mirror swaying violently on the wall above them,  making it necessary to get out of its  reach as speedily its possible. Chairs  .also were rocking on the floor, glassware falling from the mantel-piece  and a heavy marble, wash-stand top  that was fastened into the wall torn  loose.  As soon as the shock had spent its  greatest foice they heard a commotion in the. street where people had-  rushed in their night clothes, but Mr.  and Mrs Forbes concluded that it was  bettor to take time to dress and pack  up which they did before going on the  street, which thev found full of people,  many in their night clothes and afraid  to re-enter the' buildings. Had the  shock occurred two hours later when  the streets would have been thronged  the number of killed would have been  terrible.  The asphalt pavement in the street  opposite was torn in great rents as if  it had been ploughed: the street car  rails were bent and twisted, and the  block in which they had been was divided a couple of doors from the one  in which their room was situated. A  walk along Market street showed the,  terrible damage which had been done,  the street in many places strewn with  debiisfroin front walls that had fallen out disclosing the furniture and  other trappings of the interiors. The  veneered walls suffered worst of all.  Their attention was drawn to a fhe  breaking out near their quarters which  made them hurry .back, and soon  others were seen. Taking their baggage, they became wanderers in the  streets with thousands of others, being  driven back by the. fire block hy block.  That morning they were able in one  restaurant to get a cilp of chocolate  and in the afternoon in a small grocery  shop they bought some crackers and  deviled ham, which was all they had  to live on for the remaining part of  two days and a night, for it was  Thursday night before they gained  shelter. Wednesday night they spent  in  the  street on  Van  Ness  Avenue,  getting a nap on the sidewalk during  the night.  Fortunately they had purchased  tickets via C. P. R. to Victoria on  Tuesday. They could have got shelter  in Oakland but were, afraid to go as  they wouldn't be allowed to return  again to the city, for the object of the  authorities was to get 'everybody out  of the city. Several times Mrs. Forbes  was left to watch, the luggage while  Mr. Forbes tried to make his way to  the docks, and as a result of sundry  reconnaisanqes he managed to get Airs.  Forbes and the baggage, oil Thursday  evening, to the dock where the Senator was lying, upom.which their passage had been taken. They were not  allowed on board the Senator, which  was in charge of the captain alone,  having neither crew, coal nor water.  The Santa Rosa, of the same line, had  come, lu from Southern California,  from which none of the passengers  were allowed to land, and it was only  by displaying the tickets and acquainting them with the fact that there was  a woman who was ready to drop -from  exhaustion, that they were permitted  on board. There they stayed until  they were transferred to the Senator  on Saturday night; but all the Avhile  they were in danger from tlie burning  shingles falling over the liarbor, and  only the closest >, vigilance kept the  boat from burning.  'The Senator sailed early on Sunday  morning and they breathed easy when  they were out in the bay^ieyond reach  of flying cinders.  They are quite positive that the  fatalities are very much underestimated when placed at 300J as accurate  data will account for several times  that number.  STILL CAUSING DELAY  The Minister of Railways and  Canals Allows C. P. R. to  Hold Back Railway  Work at Hedley.  A PUBLIC MEETING PROTESTS  Minister's   Decision Forbids  Work  Between   Hedley and  Sixteen  Mile���������'  Also Allows C. P. R. Time to Examine Before Approving V. V. & E.  Plans on North Side of River.  PROGRESS ON V. V. & E.  Scarcity of Men Still Hampering Work���������  Tracklaying is Delayed a  Few.  Weeks in Consequence.  As May 1st was the date set.to begin  track-laying westward from Midway,  the following report of progress and  forecast of probable future operations  from the Midway Star is apropos.  The Star says :  "Work on the grade, between here  and Molson is progressing as rapidly  as the limited amount of labor available will permit. There still remains  about 250 feet of tunnel work to finish,  besides one or two rather heaw rock  cuts to complete. A piledriver arrived  in the yard the beginning of the week,  as also a number of heavy bridge castings, all of which have been unloaded.  Several iron dump cars were sent out  west Monday, which we understand  were to be used in clearing the large  amount of rock which the blasting  operations have scattered over a large  area of agricultural land adjacent to  the grade. It is not considered likely  by those best qualified to judge that  the grading operations will permit the  laying of steel much before the first or  second week in June, although sufficient steel might be laid earlier to enable the piledriver to reach the location  of the first long trestle, near the  tunnel."'  Rev. R. It. Bartlett will go to Princeton on Saturday's stage for service on  Sunday.  Mr. Slatter of the V. V. it R. Nn-  gineering slalf at Keremeos was in  town over Sunday.  A new diamond drill for the Yale  Mining C<>. has been purchased by the  manager and is now at Penticton.  The drill is capable of drilling and  hoisting to a depth of 800 feet. This  drill will be. kept steadily at work  prospecting the various claims of the  Company and is expected to accomplish about 500 feet per month.  Rev. Ernest R. Bartlett. M. A., the  new lector of Hedley parish of the  Anglican church, came in on Saturday's stage, accompanied by his wife  and two children. On Sunday he held  service in Fraternity Hall, which  was attended by a large number. The  reverend gentleman comes from Ferine and on the way over had a rather  uncomfortable experience some where-  near Slon.ui Junction, in getting mixed  up in a railway wreck; the coach in  which they were riding came to grief  but they escaped without injury. In  addition to the work of the Hedley  parish, Mr. Bartlett will supply Princeton on alternate Sundays.    ���������  At the. adjourned hearing before the  Minister of Railways and Canals, held  in Ottawa on 27th nit., the decision  given by the Minister was'disappointing to say the least, and was not calculated to inspire much enthusiasm  on the part of residents of Hedley for  a departmental head who had as little  regard for the progress of any particular section of the country as to  permit operations to be. delayed upon  no better: ground than the pretences  made by Drihkwater and Gutelius,  who appeared oh behalf of the C P. R.  The decision was to the effect that  before giving full approval to the  plans of the V. V. & R. to build on the  north side of the Similkameen river,  the C. P. R. should have an opportunity to satisfy themselves that they  were not going to be crowded out of  room for station grounds at Hedley,  and that in the meanwhile the V. V.  <fc E. were not to be allowed to do any  construction work between Hedley  and Sixteen Mile.  This decision becoming known, it  was felt that it was up to Hedley to  take some steps to protect their own  interests, and accordingly a, public  meeting was called on Saturday evening to discuss the situation and enter  a. protest against the treatment accorded the town.  The meeting was convened by A.  Megraw, who, in opening the proceedings by stating reasons for calling it,  announced the decision of the Minister  of Railways and Canals and explained  some of the ill effects which attended  the situation to the injury of the town,  and asked the meeting to elect a chairman and secretary and proceed to the  matter in hand.  Mi-. C. A. Crawford, secretary of  the Daly Reduction Co., ,was elected  chairman, and L. G. MacHaffte secretary.  In view of the trouble, which had  been taken with the circulation of the  former petition which was so fully  signed, and that another petition could  only ask again for what- they.had  already asked, it was decided to allow  the present situation to be dealt with  by resolution alone.  The resolution which was submitted  carried unanimously, and:was as follows:  Moved by A. Megraw, seconded" by  .1. J. McDonald, and resolved that  whereas the Honorable Minister, of  Railways and Canals has given only a  qualified approval of the route map  and plans'of the V. V. it E. to build  on the north side of the Similkanieen  river by making it subject to a condition which practically amounts to  lequiring the approval of the C. P. R.,  who are bitterly opposed ;  And whereas the additional restriction appears to have been imposed,  of forbidding the V. V. it E. to prosecute grading on any part of their  route between Medley and Sixteen  Mile Creek or at Hedley, until such  approval from tin; C. P. R. is obtained;  And whereas no finding of hostility  to the C. P. It., or desire to place them  at a disadvantage, exists in the town,  we, who are on the ground and are in  a. position to judge the case on its  merits, fail to see wherein the proposed  route of the V. V. it E. interferes in  the slightest degree with the surveyed  route of the 0. P. R. at this place, and  shown in the plans which they have  fyled ;  And whereas no time limit appears  to have been set within which the  C. P. It. must make the examination  which they are thus given opportunity  to make;  And whereas serious loss is occasioned to the town of Hedley by this delay;  Therefore,  be it resolved that this  mass meeting of the citizens of Hedley,  request the Hon. Minister of Railways  and Canals to do justice to Hod lev by  re-considering his decision to the extent of requiring (1) That the C. P. R.  make their, examination within a  specified time, for which we consider  ten or fifteen days from date of notice-  more than ample: (2) That at the end  of said time limit the restriction relating to the prosecution of work between Hedley - and Sixteen Mile be  wi thdrawn absol utely.  And that copies of this resolution be  transmitted to Duncan Ross, M. P.,  to be presented to both the Minister of  Railways and Canals and to the Board  of Commissioners, and that Mr. Ross  be requested to press for immediate  re-consideration and the withdrawal  of the disabilities which are working  serious injury and loss to the town of  Hedley every day that they are allowed to hinder the immediate! prosecution  of work in this vicinity.  FEARFUL    ACCIDENT  Serious Fatality at the Mine���������Two ?������en  Killed and One Injured.  On Tuesday afternoon the worst  accident which has yet attended mining operations at the Nickel Plate,  occurred, by which Isaac Doran and  Joseph Dumas were killed instantly  aiid A. Anderson injured.  The accident occurred in the tunnel  on the Sunnysides, and at time of  writing the exact cause of the. premature blast is unknown.  The men had taken in the .powder,  fuse and caps to load eleven holes.  They had taken all the explosives in a  gunny sack, but whether the detonators were attached to the fuse is not  known, and neither does it seem to be  known whether they had sprung any  holes before loading, which is the most  common cause of loading accidents.v  .Doran and Dumas were in at the face  of the tunnel when the blast went off  and were blown back against the wall,  about 40 feet away, where the tunnel  changes direction. The bodies were,  frightfully mangled. Anderson, who  was near the mouth of the tunnel, was  taken out unconscious. Whether he  had been blown against a wall doesn't  appear. He w<is bleeding from the  ear, which the concussion from the  blast would account for without any  other injury.  Doran leaves a widow and one son  about 12 years. He had married twice  and the- boy was from the former  marriage. Deceased w.as born in Scotland and was an old miner in the  Nickel Plate. Dumas was unmarried.  Keenest sympathy is felt for Mrs.  Doran in her bereavement.  An inquest was being held at time  of going to press.   -i^     ���������: :   ANOTHER TRAIN ROBBERY  C.    P. R.   Westbound    Held  Up    Near  Kamloops  The westbound overland passenger  train on tin.' C. P. R. is reported to  have been held up by train robbers on  Tuesday night, or rather at one o'clock  on Wednesday morning, about iiO  miles from Kamloops. and the mail  car robbed. The registered mail was  taken.  The company have offered a inward  of .$5000.00 for the capture of each robber. A very likely route for them to  take is down through here, although  they might strike- further east and attempt to make the American .^iile via  Vernon and Penticton or from Vernon  out by White and Fire valleys. All  along the boundary line from Christina Lake to Hope Mountain the prospector, and constables should go in  together after that reward and watch  the mountains as well as the valleys.   ������������_   The Maple Leaf Club held a very  successful dance in Fraternity Hall on  Friday evening last. About fifteen  couple Avere present. Good music was  'supplied by Mrs. W. H. Smith and  Mr. Gibbon, and a good Unit! was  spent. This was the last of the season.  The Hedley baseball team will meet  Princeton on Sunday next, on the  Hedley grounds. Both tennis have  been putting in some good practice  and a better game mav be expected,  although Hedley may have difficulty  in getting out all their players as some  may be on shift.

There is evidence also  j that  in  tlie  new   recently  ap-  i pointed head of the  Geological  i Survey, Mr. A. P. Low, that important    department    will   not  isuH'er, for  he  is  known   to be  'thoroughly  in  sympathy  with  ] the mineral industry of this province and.ready to do all he can  for its advancement.     In view  of this fact it is the duty  of  all  the . representatives from'   tin's  province and the British Columbia press to keep hammering" incessantly for a largely increased  appropriation for the Geological Survey. It is a plea that can  be    put   forth    on    business  grounds,and defended as a gilt-  edge investment to the country,  for it will bring immediate  returns far-a.bove the cost.  ���������-   Just at present there is much  clamor for a Dominion Department of Mines, although the agitation   appears  to    emanate  more from hungry politicians in  quest of a. new graft than; from  mining men.     Any proposition  for such which may be  ottered  as a substitute for the Geological Survey or calculated to  lessen the interest in or support of  the Survey  should  be scanned  narrowly, that no  danger may  be incurred of throwing away  the substance for  the  shadow.  Better treble the appropriation  to  the  Geological  Survey  and  keep political "pull" out of it as  much as possible.  NOTICE.  Certificate of improvements.

It appeal's that the  name was wrongly  given,  and  the gentleman wlio is  to  work  during the summer in this field  is Mr. C. Camsell who is considered one of the best among  the  younger  men  of  that   department of tlie public  service, and  who will no doubt do good work  although the task seems a  colossal one  for one  man  to attempt alone.    It only, however,  goes to show  how   ridiculously  inadequate are  the  appropriations each year 'for  so  important a department, and it is also  learned  that for   the    present  season tlie amount is  even  cut  down one fourth owing to  the  change in making the fiscal year  end on the  last day  of March  instead of on  the  last day  of  June as formerly.    Mr. Camsell  will start at  the  International  Boundary and follow down  the  south fork of the  Similkameen  River to  Princeton,  making a  geological and topographical examination and survey for sufficient    distance    on    each    side  to take in most of the  mining  camps with a view to preparing  a preliminary report and sketch  map of the district covered and  in succeeding years larger  parties will take it more   in detail  for the purpose of' preparing  a  complete  geological  map   with  detailed report.

Ice cream and cake  were provided and a pleasant time  spent.  The departure a couple of weeks ago  of two of our citizens was expected to  lead up to something, and it did, for  on Tuesday they returned, "two minds  with but a. single thought and two  hearts that beat as one." The happy  event took place in Westminster on  Monday, April 30th, and the contracting parties were Mr1. John K. Fi-aser  and Miss Mary Eunice McKinnon.

This is  ���������certainly the right Avay to go about it,  feu- the cost of getting expert aelvice in  the initial stage of operations is money  well spent, and Mr. McEvoy has fully  ���������demonstrated his capabilities.

V. & E. Plans.  The Hedley Board of Trade met. on  Saturilay evening last to devil with the  mutter of location  of the V. V.   <K:   E.  line at Hedley and protest against the  action of the Department of Railways  and Canals in forbideling the prosecution of railway construction, between  Hedley and Sixteen Mile ponding examination by  the C. P. R.  Mr. J. D. Brass, vice-president occupied the chair.  Moved by George Sprpule, seconded i  '���������by J. J. .McDonald, and resolved that i  inasmuch as the Hedley Board of j  Trade has learned that restrictions \  have been attached to the approval of j  the plans of the V. V. &��������� E. in the de- j  fusion given by .the Honorable Minister j  of Railways , anel Canals'iii reference.'  to location of the line of the V. V.& E. !  through the town of ' Hedley, thisl  Board, in asking the Hon. Minister.to I  re-consider his decision, beg leave toj  submit, the following.reasons : . j  *     (1) While it is not the wish   of this I'  Board or the people- of Hedley to place i  the C. P. R. at any disadvantage or to  ���������'put any obstacles in the way of their  building   through'this valley and obtaining   at   Hedley all   the   facilities j  which they may reipiiro in the way. of |  convenient station'grounds to enable j  them  to   compete   on  equal  grounds  with their rivals for their share of tlie  trade of the town, yet in-view'of the  ���������.fact that they have never yet by any  official statement issued from the head  office of  the Company,  or by public j  announcement of any prominent offi-j  cial  of the   Company,  declared ��������� that  they will build their'roael through this  'valley-within one or two or any stip-  ulateel   number'of. years,   this  Board  ���������   hold it to be unjust that the C. P. R.  should be allowed to elelay the  work  of railway construction through  this  town on the part of any other road,  or to endeavor to force that road  to  build across.'..'the river and away from  the town.  (2) As the plans of both railways  are fyleel with the. Department .of  Railways and Canals, by which it may  .be seen that the distance between the  two lines is so great that there is  ample room for station .grounds for  ,both roads,-it would seem that the request for time to make examination  ���������was only asked to cause delay.  ��������� - (3) The difference in altitude between  the two roads makers an excellent arrangement so far as the convenience  of the town is 'concerned, in that the  C. P. R. station would be about the  same distance from the centre of the'  town as the V. V. <S: E. anel would be  reached by roads underneath a high  V. V. & E. trestle, thereby doing  awav with any dangerous railway  crossing.  (���������!���������) The absence of any time limit for  making examination may pe-rmit the!  C. P. R. to defer sending engineers for  an indefinite'period and ^-ause endless  delav and loss to the town.  (5) The direct evidence, as well as  assurance from prominent officials of  the Great Northern, that construction  work woulel be under way at Hedley  in the early part of the year ca.used  business'men here to stock up in a way  that they woulel not have done had  thev known that the Minister of Railways woulel allow the C. P. R. to  cause this elelay, and unless the pei ioel  of waiting be soon brought te> an end  by allowing construction to proceed,  the consequences mav be most serious.  For these reasons. the Board ask  that the Honorable Minister of Railways and Canals re-consider his ele-  e-ision and accord unconditional approval of the plans of the V. V. tv. E.  unless the C. P. R. complete their examination within ten days of date of  notice, which should immediately be  given them.  Anel that a copy of this resolution  be sent to Duncan Ross, M. P., to be*  .submitted to the Hon. Minister of  Railways anel Canals, and to the Honorable iloard of Railway Commissioners of Camilla. ' ���������C.-irried.

To make good bread you  must have good flour. If  you want the best bread  you must use the best  flour.  The annual meeting of the Southern  Okanagan Land Co. was held at Penticton on Tuesday.  An attempt was made to rob the  Oroville bank last week. Midway also  has been infested of late with undesirable characters anel a few attempted  hold-ups by foot-pads have occurred.  These are concomitants of the railroad:  but if Hedley could only get railway  work moving here we would be satisfied to take it with these gentry thrown  in and risk the chance of keeping tlii-m  in check.  BOOT &   SHOE  MAKER  HEDLEY, B. C  Midway has been jogged a little out  of her usual routine of late. As Victoria Day approached, her citizens began to think of her reputation as host  to many hundreds of visitors on that  day for several years past, and tlie desire was general that she eclipse all  past efforts in 1000. Some weeks since  an energetic committee set to work to  get up a banner celebration for the  coming 21th of May.  In raising funds no difficulty has  been experienced, The citizens have  been generous and the increased population makes it easier to do bigger  things than ever before. Liberal prizes  have been provided for every line of  sport anil the large purses Avill bring  lively contests in horse races, baseball,  hose races, bicycle, cowboy, prospector and other events  Word comes from Greenwood, Phie-  nix. Grand Forks, Curlew, Ferry,  Eholt and other points that many arc  coming to look on anel they are bringing men and horses to take part and  incidentally carry olf prizes.  Midway has hitherto been amply  able to take care of Victoria Day  crowds, and her greatly increased hotel accommodation gives assurance  that there will be abundance for visitors.  Special trains will be run by  the  C.  P. 11. and the Great Northern ; the  Greenwood city band of 20 pieces will  be in attendance anel Midway looks  her best in May.  ousehold  IS THE FINEST FLOUR MADE.  You can always depend  on it.
