A feeling of deep regret was felt in  Hedley when it became known on  Wednesday of last week that Mrs. J;  C. R. Cootes, so lately removed from  Hedley, had died suddenly at Kendall,  Montana. The word came to Mrs. G.  P.Jones in a ..letter from Mrs. Wni,  Bragg, who saw Mr. Cootes in Spokane  on his way to Tacoma with there-  mains. Deepest sympathy is felt here  for Mi*. Cootes and also for Mrs. Hazzard, mother of the deceased, who was  well known in Hedley, having visited  here in the summers of 1905 and 190G.  Those who knew best how strongly  wrapt up in his.home ties Mr. Cootes  always was, will realize more fully the  heavy bereavemeut which the death  of his wife inflicts.  A copy of tin* Tacoma Daily News of  May 4th would indicate that the sad  event had taken place on April 20th.  The obituary notice in the News is as  follows :  The funeral of Mrs. John C. R. Cootes  will take place tomorrow afternoon at  2 o'clock from Hoska's chapel, on St.  Helen's avenue;.  Mrs. Cootes died suddenly at Kendall, Mont., Monday last, after an illness of less than two days, with peritonitis. Her maiden name wiis Julia  Anna. Hazzard, and she was the  daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Hazzard, old-time residents of Tacoma.  She was txirn at Newcastle, Ind., February 1. 1877, and was married to Mr.  Cootes of Tacoma February 5, 1896.  Her husband is a well-known electrical expert engineer who received his  early training in the electrical department of the T. R. & P. company of this  city. Later he was occupied as chief  electrical engineer at the Newcastle  mines in King county. About four  years ngo he went to Hedley, B. C, to  occupy the same position with the  Daly mines there. About three months  ago lie was transferred to Kendall,  Mont., where he is now stationed.  Mrs. Cootes was well known in Tacoma, as she was only 5 years oleL-when  her parents moved to this city in 1888,  and her education was obtained in the  public schools of Tacoma. wShe. is survived by three children, Sarah M.,  George H. anel John C, aged 10, 5 and  3 years.  Mrs. Joseph L. Carmen, wife of the  well-known manufacturer, is a sister  to Mr. Cootes, and Mrs. E. C. Gear, the  well-known educator of this city, is a.  maternal aunt.  Mrs. Hazzard, who has lieen visiting  in the east, arrived this afternoon from  Indiana, accompanied by her brother,  Winfield S. Tobey, of Cedar Rapids,  Iowa. Mrs. Hazzard is one. of the best  known among the. early settlers of Tacoma. Her husband, George Hazzard,  is well known in political circles, and  was former chairman of the demo  era.tic state central committee.  It will be recallrd that this is the  second time Mr. and Mrs. Hazzard have  been so suddenly stricken, as less than  ������four years ago their eldest daughter,  Elizabeth, wife of Frank L. Hale, died  suddenly at McCormick, in Lewis  county. Mrs. Hale is buried in Tacoma  cemetery, where Mrs. Cootes will also  be buried. The only surviving child  of Mr. and Mrs. Hazzard is George  Howard Hazzard, now in charge of the  Northern  Pacific  interests at Hunt's  A temporary settlement, at least,  has resulted from the strike conferences, and both sides have agreed that  the status upon which agreement was  based should remain in force for two  years. The new settlement provides  for a slight increase in the wage scale,  and when signed by representatives of  both parties to the dispute, notices  were posted to the .men by president  Sherman directing them to return to  work. The notice posted was as follows :  "To the officers and members of the  U. M. W. of A., district No. 18.  " The result of the voting upon the  new agreement is as follows:  For  1,124  Against.............    747  Junction, near Walluln, in this state.  Mttj. for agreement..     377  "The agreement has been duly signed again and all members are requested to end their vacation and resume  work at the mines immediately.  "(Signed)   F. H. SHERMAN,  ���������-District President, U. M.W. of A."  The feeling of the men is strongly  in favor of this return to work, though  they feel strongly against Sherman,  for they realize now that work should  never have ceased and that they could  have reached the same agreement  without the loss of a day's Avork.  Work will be resumed almost at once,  though the operators state that it will  take several days before the mines can  he opened to their full capacity.  The agreement is a lengthy one.  By  " it the provision of agreements existing prior to April 1,1907, are confirmed  for a further period of two years, excepting in so far as they are changed  by provisions of the new agreement.  Sixty days before expiration of the  new arrangement conferences will be  held by parties to discuss a renewal.  All persons accepting employment at  mines, coke ovens and outside plants,  are   to   be   governed   by   rules   laid  down in the agreement.   In the event  of a local dispute   the man  with  a  grievance will subject his complaint to  the pit boss.    If the pit boss and employee fail to agree,  the matter shall  go before the pit committee, and mine  superintendent.     If they fail to agree  it shall be referred to the general manager or general superintendent of the  company concerned, and the members  of the district board.   Should they faii  to agree the dispute shall be referred  to a joint committee, comprising three  operators appointed by the Western  Coal Operators' Association and three  miners appointed by District No. 18, of  the U. M. W. of A.   If this committee  is unable to agree, it shall endeavor to  choose independent chairman.     If it  cannot do so,  the ,minister of labor  shall be asked te> appoint such  chairman.    The decision of the committee  thus constituted shall be binding upon  both parties.    While the dispute is being considered the men  must remain  at work.   In the event of an employee  being discharged he shall not remain  in the employ of the company while  the case is being investigated.     If the  claim is made for lost time,  the joint  committee shall determine the amount  of compensation, if any."  On the clay after posting of notices,  all local unions were at work excepting  Michel, which reported 155 majority  against the agreement. Michel has  faith in neither Sherman nor Lindsey.  It is thought they will return to work  in a. day or two, the penalty being the  forfeiting of their International charter if they stay out. The coke ovens  are now running at Ferine, the men  having returned to work.  Meetings of the. conciliation board  were held, and on being interviewed,  Sir Wm. Muloek stated that the present system of the operators in his estimation was a most short-sighted  policy; that they made no arrangements for meeting  the demands for]  Since last fall, Mr. E. W. Beidler,  general manager for the Palmer Mountain Tunnel Co., at Loomis, has had  his eye on a group of eight claims on  Five Mile in which our townsman F.  M. Gillespie is interested with a couple  of prospectors, Uhler and Cox.  The group consists of the Bornite,  Blue Ridge, Gladstone, Roseberry,  Shamrock,! Productus, Beleinnite and  Right of Way mineral claims, and  have excellent copper showings.  Mr. Beidler made one trip in last fall  but was delayed rather late and there  was already some snow on the ground.  Last week he returned in company  with Geo. Jamine, M.E., from Seattle,  and they proceeded to the camp on  Five Mile where Messrs. Uhler and Cox  are now at work. On their way back  they had only a short time to stay and  nothing definite was ascertained as to  what progress had been made in the  negotiations.  On his former visit, Mr. Beidler was  favorably impressed, and his return in  company with Mi*. Jamine is evidence  that the group is attractive.  During the'development, work already done, there has been considerable sampling and testing of values  and the results have been most encouraging, the copper percentage being in  advance of most of the Boundary properties that are now making big money for their stock-holders.  Transportation means everything to  snch a lay-out,'and if the railway were  only making the progress which was  expected of it and all doubts were settled as to intentions of the railway  after Keremeos is reached were definitely settled, the effect which it would  produce would be sure to result in  making the mineral resources of the  Similkameen much more attractive  for investors.  THE ROLLO; BONDED  Important Claim in Twenty-  mile Camp Goes to Eastern Capitalists."  FIRST LOCATION IN THE CAMP  Located a Year Before the Nickel Plate-  Ottawa Capitalists the Lucky Bonders  ���������Development Expected Shortly.  Last week Mr. H.W. Yates received  a telegram from R. Hedley to the effect that the Rpllo mineral.' claim had  been bonded by him to   Ottawa capitalists. ......  A letter was also received later, but  full details of the transaction are not  yet to hand.      .  The Re������llo cwas located in August,  1897 by Peter Scott, and is therefore  the oldest existing location in Twenty  mile camp, all other locutions prior to  that time having been allowed to <  lapse. The Nickel Plate was not located until a year later. Mr. Scott  disposed of several interests in the  property, but still retains a part ownership. The other owners., are-.Paul  Jemnson and R. R. Heelley, both noted  smelter men.  The Rollo, with a very limited  amount of development, is known to  have good ore and a fine body of it,  and it is to be hoped that the capitalists who have taken the bond are of  the right sort, and will push development. When they do they will find  that they have got hold, of a property  that will make a barrel of money for  them.  RIFLE   MATCH.  The   May  Shoot  of the  Association.  Hedley   Rifle  CROSSED ON FALSEWORK  V. V.  & E.    Track-laying-   Engine  sumes Work on This Side.  Re-  The pile-driver completed work on  the Armstrong bridge on Monday  night and was moved forward to a  small trestle at Manery's on Tuesday.  After the pile-driving at Armstrong's  was completed it was only a matter of  a few hours more until the caps,  stringers and cross-ties were on ready  for the engine to cross on Tuesday.  The Riyer took another rise this  week, and with the rows of piles driven in the channel for the falsework  being placed only 14 feet apart, extreme care will have to be taken to  guard against damage from driftwood  until the spans are completed.  Track-laying is to be resumed on  this side of the river to-day and they  will endeavor to get to Keremeos with  all possible speed.  A party of surveyors arrived at  Keremeos* on Tuesday to lay out some  track-work and piling at the Keremeos yawls, where the pile driver will  be brought shortly after completion  of the Manerv trestle.  A   PATRIOTIC   TOWN.  Summerland has a rifle association  in affiliation with the D. R. A. and the  club has a membership of ninety.  They are getting a supply of Ross  rifles and are certainly a live organization. The town with Sumuierland's  population which will organize and  maintain such a body is certainly all  right. Those who esteem patriotism  blended with elevating scientific: sport,  must take off their hats to Summer-  land and its rifle association;  coal on the part of the public during a,  tie-up of the mines. He suggests that  the mine operators should store several hundred thousand tons for this purpose, and that this system should be  the principle of every dealer as well.  He. speaks very strongly of the rights  of the public in this matter to be protected from any suffering as a result  of any dislocation between the miners  and operators. The present policy of  the operators in this question openly  invites attack. President Sherman, on  being interviewed, refused to submit  any statement for publication.  The monthly shoot of the Hedley  Rifle Association for May took place  this week, when nine competitors took  part.  The wind was particularly trying,  varying in velocity from gentle to  gale, and in direction, as descril>ed in  the Julie Plante:  " De wind she blow from nor', ens', west:  Do sout' wind she blow too."  Consequently the scoring on the whole  left something to be desired,  and that  something was a more generous supply  ot bullseyes.  The cup was won by L. C. W. Rolls  on a total of 61, and the medal held by  T. D. Pickarci in the last shoot was also won by Mr. Rolls on a score of 40,  which was the total made by him on  the 200 and 300 yard ranges, upon  which ranges the medal was this time  contested. Next time it will be given  on the 300 and 400 yard ranges.  "While matches will be held as often  as can be arranged, it has been decided  by the. Association that only on the  regular monthly shoot will the club  trophies be shot for.  New blood is wanted in the Association, anel Hedley should supply a far  greater membership, especially when  there is no other out-door amusement  to offer any counter attraction during  the summer season.

FOSTER'S WEATHER BULLETIN  Last bulletin gave forecasts of disturbance*.' to cross continent 10 to 14,  warm wave 9 to 13, cool wave. 12 to 10.  Next   disturbance  will  reach   Pacific  ~ j Coast about 15. cross west* of Rockies  j country by -close of 10.    Warm    wave  .S2.ot>: will cross  west''of Rockies about- 15,  '    'great central valleys 17, eastern states  19.    Cool wave will cross' west of Rockies about 18,-great central  valleys, 20,  eastern states 22.  Unusually cool weather will be the  feature of absorbing interest in relation to this disturbance, As���������,tlie low  or storm centre approaches' a. moderate warm wave will come in, but before and after that moderate wariii  wave,it will be so��������� very cool as to cause  alarm for the crops in middle latitudes.  If the reader will.keep in mind that  these weather changes cross the continent from west to east in four to five  days averaging 400 to (500 miles in 24  hours ; that a very huge majority of  the storm centres come from the north  Pacific- ocean, passing through Manitoba, the- Dakotas, the great lakes and  pass off the continent near the month  of the St. Lawrence river, with these  facts in mind, my , forecasts can be  more fully understood and appreciated.

The action of tlie Canadian and American governn.ieiits.in  increasing  the  postage-! on newspapers sent from  the  office of publication 'to subscribers  in  the United  State's <>;��������� Canada as  the  case may be, is causing a heap  of  dissatisfaction both with  publishers and  subscribers.    The bulk weight basis of  payment is  abolished,   and  a.  rate  of  one cent for   four  ounces   payable   by  stamps is substituted.    The object in  making the change was claimed to   be  that of shutting out vast quantities of  trashy  literature   that  were',   for  the  most part mere advertising fakes and  not bona lulu publications.    Unfortunately while these may be snuffed out,  other publications of merit' that  the  people; of Canada, want   will   be   shut  out as well: unless some arrangement  be niadc. for establishing international  news bureaus,   to  whom   1 he  publications may be shipped  by fast  freight  and addressed by these bureaus to the  subscribers.'    The   Ne;\v   Westminster  Oolumbiau, speaking of it,  points  out  inconsistency  of   the government in  spending large sums for immigration  and cutting off the foreign circulation  of the leie:al papers which are the most  effective   immigration    agencies   that  we have, and which were not  costing  the   goveintni-'iit   ."nything.       Eyery'  weekly paper sent to subscribers across  the line, will, providing  they  can   be  kept down in size so as  to bring them  under the four ounces in  weight,   cost  just 52 cents per year in postage. Publishers of weeklies in this province who  hii.vr .'-rabbeel on the price of subscription, will go in the* hole; on isvery  subscriber tbe-y have living in the   United  States, for  the.-   postage  and  price  of  material   will   more   than   eat  up   the  whole subscription priee and leave  all  the; printing, folding, and  mailing  including stamp-licking for 52 issues in  the; year to be done for less than nothing,    it was about 25 years ago  that  the government of Sir John A. Mac-  elonald threw off postage on  newspapers from   the office of publication  in  transit to subscribers,   and  it  has  remained for that of Sir Wilfrid Lanrier  to go back to methods  that belonged  to the dark ages.     As a result of doing away with the postage  there  was  a general reduction   in   the   price   of  subscriptions;   but already   Ammeri-  can publishers are  writing Canadian  subscribers for the extra amount to  cover postage.

Ben Norris, who has been working  for the Hedley Lumber Company, had  to lay off for a week through sickness,  but resumed work yesterday.      ,  The, past two weeks have witnessed  much greater activity in mining matters in the district, and investors are  beginning to come in or send representatives to examine property for them.  .T, W. Oollis, at one"time" a prospector herein the early days of the camp,  was in town this week, representing a  mining supply house. He .was former-,  ly in partnership with 0. A, C. Steward. ��������� ���������    ��������� '    .1  ��������� Emil F. Voigt, of Voigt's Camp, Copper Mountain, came down on Saturday's stage from Princeton, and spent  Sunday in Hedley, taking the stage  out on Monday morning en route for  the coast.  The drop in the river was opportune  and was taken advantage of by the  Hedley Lumber Co. to gather in the  logs that were stranded on the banks  and-bars during the sudden, freshet.of  November last. A gang went to work  on the river Monday morning.  The Similkameen river was beginning to get a lively gait on until the  cool wave of. the end of the week  checked it up a. bit and caused a drop  of soine-two feet in about* tliree days.  Twenty-mile also increased considerable in volume, but-was yet far below  the high water mark of years ago.  The trial of .Tames Dale who killed  two men at Carmi last fall will come  up at Greenwood on the 22nd at the  spring assizes. The whole circumstances of the killing being so thoroughly understood, the trial will be  largely a matter of form, for no new  features can very well develop,  W. Stone, diamond drill superintendent, came over from Rossland last  week accompanied by his wife and  children and went up to the mine.  Workmen to man the drills have been  coming over from the Kootenays for  the past fortnight, and crews will soon  be manned to operate three drills which  will be kept at work all summer on  the properties of the Yale Mining Co.  Mrs. Revely, of Vancouver, mother  of Messrs. F.W. Revely, livery keeper,  and Chas. Revely, store-keeper at the  Nickel Plate, arrived in Hedley on Saturday last, and expects to reside here  for a time with her sons. Mr. Revely  has taken Mr. Stott's cottage on Ellis  Street. To save hen- from the tedium  of the long stage drive from Penticton  Fred, met her at Keremeos with a private rig.  The peach trees in John Neil's orchard at the mouth of Sterling creek  are in bloom, and barring any freaks  in the weather between now and early  fall, should give a good crop. The.  season being somewhat later than the  lower Similkameen or Okanagan, the  blossoms escaped the frost of two  weeks ago which scattered ruin among  the peach orchards in some of the  fruit-growing districts farther south.  The coach stallion, Diplomatic, purchased by the Keremeos horse- syndicate from McLaughlin Bros.;- of Minneapolis, was brought to Hud ley last  week by W. J. Manery, who is one of  the syndicate;. The; horse is a four-  year-old light bay, dappled, and is a  perfect picture for those who admire  beauty and symmetry. The syndicate paid a fine round price for him  and are to be congratulated on the  enterprise they have displayed in their  ���������endeavor to improve the grade of  horses in this district.  Mr. C W. Thomas, of Boundary  Falls, formerly superintendent of the  Dominion Copper Co's smelter there,  and now general manager since, the  departure of Mr. Drumniond for Co-  balt,came over last week and went up  to Voigt's Camp where the Company-  have a bond em an important, group of  claims. He was very much pressed  for time, having an engagement in the  Boundary in connection with some  labor troubles that developed there  and was making forced marches to  get back in time.  Mr. F. M. Wells, manager of the  Kingston Gold anel Copper Mining Co.  who has been out eif the district for  two or three weeks, returned a- few  days ago and reported having some  good fishing put alJSicanious.  Mr.   L.   Bullock-Webster   returned j  from Princeton on Thursday last, and j  will return  to England shortly.    He!  deplored the indifference ."displayed in j  England concerning British Columbia, !  and the lack of knowledge- that existed j  concerning this province and its re-'  sources.   Much of it, he  believed  was ' ���������  due to the Whittaker Wright incident j f  and other unwise attempts  to exploit  properties regardless of merit or  the  lack of it.    Hedley,  however,  hoars' a  good reputation  in  the. Old Country  among those who know this town and  district.   All English investors in Hedley property have clone well  in  their  investments, and are likely to do still  better.  Richter's townsite at Keremeos  Centre is noxv em the market.

Company Claims to   be   Independent  of  Crows Nest Mine Supply.  That the C. P. R. is now practically  altogether independent of the Crow's  Nest Pass coal mines, and that, strike  or no strike, it will have plenty of  coal to move its passenger trains and  a much greater number of freight cars  than ever before is the optimistic declaration of coast officials of the company.  Navigation of the great lakers.is open,  the  first   ste.-ainer having left Owen  Sound on  April  20th.   The company  lues 50,000   tons   of  coal immediately  available which can be moved at once  to Fort   William and   thence   to the  west where  it is needed.    It has developed that already the company has  made use of its connection   with  the  Soo line and that as much coal as may  be   needed   is   within   comparatively  easy  reach.    And   at  the coast,   the  Vancouver island collieries have done  and will do everything possible to supply the company with all  the coal it  may  rquire.      Under     these   circumstances, there is little if any danger of  a,tie-up.     It may be,  if the strike is  not settled,   that for a few days, until  the    supply    from    the    lakes   is  available, there may be a very decided shortage  west of   Winnipeg,  but  this at worst seems to be a   matter of  but a very-short time.  ���������'The C. P. R. will move more freight  this summer than it ever did" was the  emphatic statement of a. prominent  official. "Thine is only one trouble  now," he added, and that is the difficulty of getting steel. We need bridge  steel and we cannot get it. The  bridge companies are practically refusing to tender at all, being loaded  up with orders for structural steel  which will tie them up for months to  come.  "As to rolling stock, all I can say is  that the C. P. R. is rushing construction at its own shops at a rate never  before attempted, and there is not a  locomotive building plant in America  that we have not approached with a  view to getting immediate delivery of  the engines Ave require. Before long  the C. P. R. will be moving freight at  a rate that will make people open  their eyes, anel il will be the busiest-  season in the history of the road."  The immense amount of grain to be  carried eastward and the even larger  amount of freight to be brought west  means that all available cars will be  loaded both ways, and the days of the  "empty" are about over. The only effect the coal trouble msiy have, it is  stated, will be that the care necessarily used in hauling coal will not be  available for freight. But there will  be plenty of coal.  FAIRVIEW   NOTES.  Congratulations to Govt. Agent J.  It. Brown on his appointment to the  important positions rendered vacant  by the death of Mr. Latnbly. His  many friends are pleased at the honor  done him, and hope he. will have a long  and pleasant tenure of office.  Mr. Turner, the new mining recorder, came in on Saturday. Welcome,  Sir, on your return to the district.  Mr. Elliott, one of the old-timers,  who is superintending work on a nearby prospect, was in town last week  and looking well.  Miss Paterson of the post office staff  is recovering from her recent indisposition and will soon be handling the  mail again.  The only "Podger" is nearly well,  anel much joy therefore is apparent in  the Hi ne household.  M. Plemmons, who is wen king at the  Stemwinder, is expecting his family in  from Looinis.  Nearly three hundred feet of shaft  anel tunnel work on the "Stemwinder"  has been done within the past nine  weeks and the Murphy drills are making a mime for themselves.  Mrs. Rex Russell's horticultural abilities are evinced in the tastefully laid  out gardens she has made at her residence.  J. P. AlcCuddv has returned from  Oregon with his equine acquisitions.  The Pelton wheel at the Stemwinder  is now running all the machinery and  steam costs are cut out, pumping as  well as drilling being done* by compressed air.  PROPERTY  Is  A  Good,  Safe   Investment  And  Will  Make  Money  Hedley  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects, "It is the mining and business  centre of the  Similkameen  the new mining district which has already beeii proven, by a  small amount of development work, to be one of the richest  gold, copper and coal mining sections of  British Columbia.  HEDLEY is the chief town on tlie route of the proposed  Coast-Kootenay Railway; and with the advent of this road,  which is assured in the near future, it will unquestionably  become a large and important city, and town lots will bring  big returns on money invested at the present time.  ...PRICE OF LOTS...
