MEG RAW  Notary F*Lifc>Hc  Conveyancer, Real Estate, Mines, Insurance, Crown Grants applied  for under Land Act and  Mineral     Act.  Some time ago the United States  government are said to have offered a  reward of $50,000 to anyone inventing  a rail-chair which will stop the clanking and jar caused - by the car wheels  going over the points between the  rails fastened- by the old-time fishplates. The wear on the ends of the  rails occasion great-loss in addition to  damage caused by the jar.  John McAdam Young, of Keremeos,  has invented a device which; he has  patented in Canada, United States,  England, France, Germany, Italy and  other foreign countries that have any  considerable mileage of railways.  The  invention  in itself,  as shown  from the drawings appended to the  letters patent, indicate a very simple  contrivance that it is a wonder some  one did not stumble on to it long before. , The chair consists of a casting  into which the ends of the rails are  inserted, a portion of the casting running alongside the rail the same height  as the rail and bridging the space between the ends, ample provision being  made tor supporting the bridge casting  with a tongue or wedge and allowing  for contraction and expansion of the  the rails.    Without cuts of the 'drawings it would be difficult to describe in  detail the arrangement soas to make  it thoroughly intelligible to the reader.  Thus far also it is said that the invention of Mr. Young leads all others  that have yet been submitted  to the  U. S. patent office, and as the reward  was limited to., a year, which is now  nearly gone, the inventor stands a very  good chance.of capturing the bun,  to  say nothing of the shekels  to  be got  from the sale of, the invention itself or  royalties on its manufacture.  A contrivance to effect somewhat  the same purpose had been patented  and in use in Prance, but Mr. Young's  patent was much superior in design  and he had no difficulty in obtaining  the patent in that country.  Curious to relate, all the foreign patents were secured without any trouble  but in both England and the United  States it was a different story���������delays  and red tape confronting the applicant  at every turn. Evidently Dickens'  Tite Barnacles of the Circumlocution  Office, and Mark Twain's Beef Contract were not powerful enough as  satires to work the reforms that are  needed in the patent offices and other  public institutions of these countries.  Kamimura   Sparring   to   Cut   off  the  Reinforcing    Squadron.  St. Petershiu-g, May G.���������Admiral  NelHigatcriFs junction with Vice-Admiral Rojestveiisky is now, considered  by the Admiralty as practically assured, and hope for a successful issue  in the approaching struggle for mastery of the sea is greatly encouraged  thereby.  If Vice-Admiral Kamimura fails to  prevent a junction of the Russian  fleets, as the Admiralty here believes  lie has done, or will do, the impression  is stroug.that Vice-Admiral Togo will  content himself with torpedo attacks.  .Naval.-officers .'..are prepared to see  Admiral Rojestvensky , lose half his  convoy, hut, in face of the united divisions, it is believed that Admiral Togo will accomplish little or nothing iii  the way of opposition to the advance  on Vladivostok, and that he must be  content, with the aid of the army, to  try and invest by land and sea and  make Vladivostok.  ANOTHER PORT ARTHUR.  If the fleet reaches Vladivostok intact however, naval officers here claim  that the victory is won. Although  there are little more than 100,000 tons  of coal at Vladivostok, with the reinforcements of the fleet by the Grom-  boi, Rossia and Bogatyr, and the torpedo-boats and sub-marines now in  the harbor then?, they claim that Rojestvensky could drive Togo off the  sea and leave Field-Marshal Oyama's  army stranded in Manchuria.  Simultaneously with the increasing  tension over the approach of Vsea,��������� battle, comes news that Field-Marshal  Oyama is pressing the Russian   right  On Tuesday morning as C. JE. Shaw  was getting into his rig at Voigt's  Camp, a wild, partly-broken horse  plunged madly and ran away, throwing Mr. Shaw out and injuring him  badly. Mr. Voigt immediately sent  for medical aid, which, in the absence  of Dr. Sehon fi-pin Princeton; was not  to be obtained nearer than Hedley. On  receipt of the news here. Dr. McEwen  and Dr. Schon, wlio was in Hedley at  the time, started for Voigt's Camp and  at time of going to press had not returned. Mr. Voigt, who was seen by  the Gazette, was of opinion that the  injuries were very serious.  CHURCH OF ENGLAND REPRESENTED  Ven.   Archdeacon   Pentreath   Organizes  a Parish in Hedley.���������Clergyman to  be Placed Here for Parishes of  Hedley and Princeton.  Midway & Vernon.  There seems to be a little revival of  interest in the Midway and Vernon  railway project at the present time,  but these revivals have been recurring  with a degree of regularity in the past  seven years that has caused little heed  to be paid to them now.   The holders  of the charter have at times been workingat cross purposes and thus opportunities for making arrangements by  which the building of the. road might  have been an accomplished fact have  been lost.  The project would certainly,  he a splendid thing for Vernon and the  West Fork of Kettle River;   but until  the promoters get over their iteming  for j unketings across  the ocean and  make up their minds to do business  with   those   nearer home,  and do it  quick instead of waiting until the last  hour of each extension of time there  will be little hope of accomplishing  anything.    The turning down  of the  New York proposition in the fall of  1902, which offered the best grounds  Veil. Archdeacon   Pentreath spent  several days in town  last week and  organized a Church of England parish  in connection with the Diocese of New  Westminster.   Dr. McEwen was elected   clergyman's   warden,   Mr.  A.  H.  Brown people's warden,  and Messrs.  Gladden and Walter Smith sidesmen.  The name selected for the parish and  church  (when built)   was  St.  Mary.  Steps will be taken to secure a building  site, and erect a church in  the near  future.  The Bishop will probably offer  the parishes of Hedley. and Princeton  to the Rev. A. E. Brown, M. A.,  late  Vicar of Weald. Kent, Eng.    He is an  unmarried man, of considerable experience, and is at present in England, but  desires to undertake work in B.C.  The-  ladies have also organized as St. Mary's  Ladies'  Guild,   with   Mrs.  Whillans,  president;   Mrs.  Schubert,  treasurer,  and Miss Stitt, secretary.   The Archdeacon was very favorably impressed  with the prospects of Hedley as a town,  and expressed himself as well pleased  with the result of his visit.    He left on  Monday for Vancouver.  S; S.

FRESfl AND CURED MEATS  Wholesale mid Kctnil.  R. J.  WYNNE,  Manager  The Gazette last week in pure goodness of heart and innocence  of Anglican nomenclature, promoted the archdeacon of tlie diocese to the  ecclesiastical dignity of an  archbishop.    This  reminds the Gazette of a certain bank  junior back east who also came, of dissenting stock and  was unaware of the  way that the bishops have  of taking  for   their surname  the  name  of  the  diocese.    This bank junior,   whom   we  will call,"Hilly" because that was  his  name, was moved to a. branch  of the  bank situated in  the territories,  and i  when a cheque signed John Athabasca  was presented for payment, be informed the bearer of it that no Indian chief  of that name had any account there.  Now the Gazette's error \\ as a  little  simpler.    We knew that in Anglicanism the man who bosses a   diocese  is  mostly called a bishop and  is sometimes called an  archdeacon.    The  intention in this case  had been   to  call  him bishop.   That left an "arch" lying  around   loose,   and   somehow    it   got  tacked   on   where   it   didn't   belong.  Things like  that do  happen  in   well-  regulated printing offices  you   know.  But to those who art;  brought  up on  the -decalogue and  the shorter catechism and whose church polity rarely  runs up against  anything more awe-  inspiring than   a "meenister"  or an  elder,   the   curates   and   vicars,   and  deans and   canons,  and archdeacons  and bishops are apt to  produce a  bewilderment so great that he can scarcely tell the. difference  between a prebendary and an artichoke.  The game of baseball between Hedley  and the Great Northern surveyors resulted in Hedley's favor by a score of  7 to 4. It was the first game. of. the  season and the players had not been  able to get in very much practice. The.  diamond also was far from being in  good shape, and there was always a  glorious uncertainty for the fielders as  to the direction to be taken by any  ball that struck the ground.  Only   seven   innings   were  played.  The  Hedley  battery  were  Mott and  Kelzer, except during the last two innings, when Messenger twirled for the  homers.    For the Railroaders, Thomas  and Hanley were  the  battery.    Mott  sprained his ankle early in  the  game  but pulled himself together and pitched  tidy ball for five innings; and with the  exception of the first innings, when all  the home players were in the; incipient  stages of a blue funk of stage  fright,  Kelzer did his duty behind the bat.   Tt  was in this hVst innings that the Gt.  Northern men obtained all their runs.  Messenger may be said to have come  in for the lion's share of honors for an  all-round steady effective game. Bragg  headed the Hedley score with  three  runs to his credit, which demonstrates  his ability to  find  the  ball,  although  the   credit   of scoring the run must  sometimes be shared up  with  a good  sure batter following.  The game was umpired by E. D.  Boeing to the complete satisfaction of  both teams, his decisions being at all  times eminently rair, and given  promptly.  Following is the score :  Gt. Northkrn.

Assurrnce Co. purchased a ten acre lot near here, a few  days ago, while in looking up business  fos his company.  G. S. Mohr has severed his connection with J. A. Schubert and has gone  into partnership with Geo. E. Winkler  in the real estate and mining brokerage business.  The Bank of Commerce opened- a  branch here a few doys ago in the rear  of J. A. Schubert's store, and several  wealthy Pentictonites hastened to deposit their surplus dollars. The bank  will shortly be moved to an office in  the Gartrell block on Ellis St. which  is rapidly being made ready.  W. J. Clement editor of the Kelowua  Clarion is getting out a special edition  for distribution at the New Westminster fair. The issue will be devoted en-  th-ely to advertising the natural w-  sources of the Southern Okanagan and  will be illustrated with suitable cuts.  The town of Penticton with its beautiful surroundings will receive particular-attention. The Clarion is to be congratulated on its enterprise in arranging to bring this favored section  to the notice of settlers in the effective  manner it has planned.  The first union Sunday school teachers' convention'of the Okanagan Valley,  met in Vernon on April 20th and 21st.  Representatives fi-om Methodist and  Presbyterian sabbath schools from  Tappen Siding to Hedley, numbering  over twenty, were in attendance. A  widespread interest in Sabbath schools  and Sabbath school teaching was evident, and the thoughtful papers followed by earnest discussion promise a  deepening of the interest in this important work. Many suggestions made  are to lie. worked out during the eoining  year and reported upon at the next-  meeting of the convention, which is to  be. held at Vernon next year about the  Easter season. The Hedley delegate,  Mrs. E. E. Hard wick, read a paper on  "The. Teachers' Study Class."  The following officers were elected  for the ensuing year: Rev. 11. W.  Ciaw, B. A., chairman: C. F. Pound,  vice-chairman; J. A. McGregor, secretary-treasurer; committee, Rev. J. H. ���������  Wright, A.P. McKenzie, J. C. Robson,  Miss E.'M. Bell, C. F.

The resolution of the Board  of Trade passed ou May 1st was telegraphed to Duncan Ross, M.P., by the  Board and other matter that was believed to have an effect in promoting  the passing of the measure was also  telegraphed, the; expense of same being borne from a little fund contributed locally. In all about .$2."> was spent  here in telegraphing to Ottawa on the  subject.  That the light on the bill was a stiff  one was evident from the fact that  Duncan Ross,M. P., wired the secretary  of the Board to send authority to  Clive Pringle to represent them there.  Olive Pringle, well-known in the  Boundary where he practised law in  Greenwood as a member of the firm of  Pringle A: Whitesides, is a good talker  and thoroughly conversant with the  situation out here: and his assistance  to the representative for Yale-Cariboo  would come in at a most opportune  time. The Board at once wired the  requisite authoiity to him at Ottawa.  here,  is   a  "Peck" in Bloomers.  D. Smith, of Smith it M.cRae, returned this week from a. trip to the  Similkameen. He saw .')'.

If you feel like carrying life insurance, (and no man whose health is  good enough to enable him to secure  some should be without it) you can  neither better youi'self nor do as well  as to take it in the Mutual Life of Canada.

George Kinnogan came down from  Copper Mountain last week, where he  says there is every evidence of an extremely busy summer in prospect. Tlie  mining specialists from Diiluth and  Colorado, who went up with Underwood, Thomas and Keller of the B. C.  Copper Co., have been making a very'  thorough investigation of the nioun-,  tain. They remained in camp at the  Sunset for about two weeks, and a  little over a. week ago came down to  Voigt's Camp, where they are at present busy sampling and examining the  extensive system of open cuts by which  the ore bodies of Voigt's holdings have,  been so well shown up.  Col. Weir, who perhaps nore than  anyone else has the credit of discovering the possibilities of the Boundary  and induced New York capital to join  with hint in the. Mother Lode was in  town on Monday. He went up to Copper Mountain. In recognition of the  great service done in the Boundary,  southern B. C. has a kindly regard for  Col.  Weir.  Messrs A. G. Pemhertonof the Montreal and Boston Co., Boundary Falls,  anil W. T. Hunter of Hun ter-Kendrick  Co., Greenwood were in town on Monday. They intended going to Keremeos that afternoon and returning to  Hedley later in the week. It is to be  hoped that they will make a thorough  inspection of the properties around  Hedley before returning.  The Victoria Week objects to being  called a society paper. The Week is  much too'virile in tone to be mistaken  for one of-the. la de da, part your hair  in the middle, society order, even if it  has a little column for social happenings; Saturday Night might also he.  called a society paper; and yet there  are not many who relish the task of  locking horns with Don.  A former Hedleyite and property-  holder here, Mr. .1 elf rev, returned to  town last week. Mr. Jeffrey has been  working for some time on the invention of a. new current motor which is  designed to be placed in streams and  develop power to pump water up on  the benches for irrigation purposes.  Patents are applied for, and Mr. Jeffrey lias received assurance that these  will soon be issued to him.  The school trustees have been informed that funds will not be available  for building the new schoolhouse in  Hedley until after July 1st. But that  is no reason why the preliminary work  should not he attended to now. Contracts will have to be let and other  matters attended to that will consume  time. Now is the time to look after  these so that no delay will occur when  the funds are available. The same  should apply to the lock-up.  General Manager Stikeumn of the  Bank of B. N. A., whose headquarters  are at Montreal, has been payingB. C.  a visit. AVhen asked in Vancouver as  to the prospects of the branch opened  in Hedley, he replied that they were  satisfactory, adding that it was the  bank's intention to treat the town properly and he had no misgivings as to  the outcome. Mr. Stikeman was enthusiastic on the possibilities of the  province.  own exceedingly high voltage of persuasive energy, has the advantage of  representing a company ^vhich should  he in a position to and does lead them  all in doing- the best possible for its  policy-holders, inasmuch as there being  no stock-holder's air the profits igo to  policy-holders; and its economical  management puts it in the lead in the  matter of low expense to new business  secured and insurance carried.

Dr.  Mathison  at all    events  objects to being blamed for the lapses  of the whole tribe of Matheson. A few  years ago a man by   his   name   made  several   trips   through   this    country  practising dentistry.    He  claimed  to  hail from Vancouver, but the  doctor  has never   been   able to   locate   him.  The trouble is that  the   dentistry   of  this namesake wasn't of the kind that  would hang   together,   and   it   made  things a little disagreeable for the doctor at times, when   the   real  sinner's  offences   are   credited   to   him.    The'  Gazette once saw the phantom Matheson in McKinney. and can testify that  all Mathison  coons don't look  alike.  Dr. Ii. Mathison's reputation  through  the Boundary whore he has practiced  steadily for the past six years . is  that  of a thoroughly competent dentist.  Sa  HEDLi  t  Strici  Speei  the!  Team  Horst  W.
