MASTERS  DENTIST      '  Following .his usual custom of making a visit to all parts of, his constituency one or more times a year Mr. L.  W. Shatford is again at'the present  time about completing a fairly exhaustive tour through the riding.  This plan of his is becoming' more  appreciated year by year by both his  supporters and those who. politically  do not see eye to eye with him for  they see that it is in the interests of  the 'community "that, the .'representative' should have the accurate knowledge of the wants of every part of his  district which can only be obtained at  firsthand. Costly mistakes are often  made by representatives, through acting on information supplied by parties  whose self-interest prevents them from  being fair. The representative >vho  never looks hear his constituents except when an election is,coming on is  at the mercy of ward-heelers and  schemers and would,be more than  human if he did not make serious mistakes that would operate both against  himself and the interests of the community. In the House Mr..Shatford  has been blamed by'.impertinent meddlers for doing'as he has done and it  is. all the more pleasing on this occasion to note that he is not allowing  himself to be influenced by any meddling criticism of that kind.  On Thursday Mr. Shatford arrived  in Hedley on his return from the western part of the district where he hael  spent several days above and around  Princeton, visiting Ooalinont. Tula-  nieen and Granite Creek where he met  most of the electors and saw the progress being made.  While the appropriation which he  has obtained this year again for his  district has been a most generous one  it is the intention as much as ever to  see that it is all wisely expended and  made to do the greatest amount of  good; and in the road supervisor fertile district, Mr. H. A. Turner, he is  fortunate in haying a rutin who has  both the business training to look  after the financial end of it and the  practical knowledge of handling men  in directing work which enables him  to keep tab on the operations of the  various road foremen.  The work to be done this year will  be largely made up of repairs and improvements with an occasional piece  of new road here and there through  the district, and all will be done with  a view as much as possible to permanency. The improvements are mostly  in bettering the steeper grades arid  cutting out as much as possible the  more dangerous spots.  In all probability the principal new  work to.be undertaken in this part of  the valley, although it is not in the  immediate vicinity of Hedley, will be  the construction of a new road for a  certain 'distance up Ashnola Creek.  The number of new ranches located  up there would in themselves justify  the expenditure and in addition to  this there is the chance that a road up  there would be the means of establishing for the Siiiiilkarneen valley on this  side of the line the advantage of being  the outlet of the tungsten properties on  the American side of the line owing to  the difficulty of obtaining access to  them from any point on the Washington side.  From here Mr. Shatford was going  through the lower valley and from  there over into the Okanagan valley  and afterwards over the Rock mountain section  and up the   Kettle Kiver.  The stock-holders of the Hedley  Gold Mining Co. were represented  tiiis week by a visit from I. Li Merrill,  president of the Company, and by Mr.  T. Walter Beam, who although not on  the Board eif Directors is nevertheless  close to the executive officers and had  a great deal to do with their purchase  of the property.  Messrs. Merrill and Beam came in  on -Wednesday's train and next day  went up to the mine.  This  was the president's first visit  since last December and Mr. Beam has  not had. an opportunity to examine  the property since he left   here, in the  early fall of 1909.    He was 111 once last  year but only a brief run   to accompany Mr.  Fraserout after his illness.  The amount of 'development which  has been done and the working of the  improved plant were   matters of special   interest  to  them  and everything  was given thorough inspection.    It is  safe  to say  that there never* was   ai  time when the mine and plant was doing better work than at the: present,  for*, while earlier 'operations": had-the  benefit of. the rich  gossan nearer   the  surface, the. closer saving and increased  crushing  capacity  now will   more  than  overcome the difference in   the  character of ore, and the management  has    the   additional    satisfaction'" of  knowing that   the .deplorable waste  which resulted from the faulty extraction   is now  a thing of  the past and  good  values   are   no   longer-   thrown  away, in the tailings.  ...  As an evidence of their satisfaction  with the success of their: first investment in this camp we take the following from the Spokane Spokesman-Review.  "Since the present owner, the Hedley Gold Mines, Limited, took over  the Nickel Plate mine at Hedley, B.C.,  it has been paying quarterly dividends  at the rate of 20 per cent per annum,  at the same time that it is building up  a good cash surplus," saiel I..L. Merrill,  of Los Angeles, Cal., president of the  company at the Hotel Spokane last  evening.  "At the same time, we have been  putting into sight a little more ore  than we have been extracting The  mill now is treating 140 tons -of ore  daily and we expect to work.up to.a  capacity of 16*0 or 170 tons with the  present plant. We did not enlarge it  materially, but added a tube mill. The  extraction, which used to be poor with  coarse   crushing, is   very satisfactory  THE WEEK'S GOLF  The fortnightly match between  Hincks and Rolls for the ladder top  Avas fortunately played last week on  Thursday afternoon or it would have  been -prevented by rain if left to be  played on the. usual date. This time  it was won by rolls 2 up and 1 to play.  This makes.."alternate' wins for them  for the last four matches and is settling down into a sort of -fixed law of  the pendulum.  The club foursomes on Saturday  brought out two sets "although several  of the "regular players were not present. Rolls and Miss Jackson played  Harold Townsend and Mrs. Jones in  which the former won, the scores being (50 to 80 and with handicaps deducted. 48 t<i 02.. A. Megraw and Mrs.  Thain played Barclay and Avonia  Jones in whicluthe former won, scores  72 tei 82 arid with handicaps deducted  51 to 00. v       ���������-v  The week has been marked by a  visit from Mr. 1. L. Merrill, president  of the Hedley Child Mining Co. who  .was'brie'-of the original members'of  the Hedley Golf Club and still keeps  up his -membership heie. Mr. Merrill  thoroughly enjoys a good game on  the Hedley links and loses no opportunity to have, a few rounds of them  in what time he can spare on his occasional ���������brief-"visits here. "He'holds  membership in different golf clubs between Camden cm the coast of Maine  and Los Angeles, Ceil., in which latter  club lie does most of his playing and  has just emerged from a club contest  there, in which he had the honor of  winning a silver cup in a match  against 56 competitors. He is playing  a strong game this summer especially  with his wooden clubs and particular-,  ly his brassie with which he is doing  superb work.  Another feature  of the week was a '  new hole; record established by Charlie  Revely who has succeeded in capturing "corkscrew" in two.  AN  ENTERPRISING FIRM  since we inaugurated fine crushing."  The Hedley Gold Mines, limited, is  capitalized at $1,500,000. Since its incorporation, a little over a year ago,  it has paid dividends of $263,520, the  regular quarterly disbursement being  $60,000. President Corey of the United  States Steel Corporation, and the  widow of the late Marcus Daly aire  two of the principal stockholders.  Mr. Merrill was formerly a prominent mining man of Butte, Montana,  where he was connected with the  Butte and Boston. With Capt. J. C.  Hoatson, he became interested in Arizona copper properties and made a  large fortune out of his holdings in  Calumet and Arizona. On his return  from Hedley in about a week, he will  go to Maine for a month's salmon  fishing.  To that   end a competi-  is being conducted  I'. 0. HOXIKKi  i/ancouver,  B. C.

SUBSCRIBE FOR THIS   GAZETTE  (Province)  Extended activity on the part of the  principal business firms of Vancouver  is as much a tribute to the growth of  the city as lo their own enterprise,  and for this reason it is interesting to  note certain changes and enlargements recently made by the well  known investment firm of Dow, Fra-  ser <fc Co., Ltd., of Cambie street.  Founded in 1900, this firm's business  has shown  marked   growth in  recent  years,  so that the sum   of  its  varied  activities  is  now quite  considerable.  In addition to real  estate, one department after another baa been added until today Dow, Fraser <5c Co.  operate a  banking department in  wliich money  is accepted on deposit, subject   to cheque,  safety  deposit vaults, a department for   the   purchase   and  sale:  of  municipal   debentures  and   industrial  stocks, as well as discharging the fiduciary duties  generally   undertaken by  a trust  company.     The  latest departure of the. firm, to  whieh attention is  now  called,  is the acquisition  eif the  premises adjacent to its office on (Cambie street.    In these  offices a legal department   has been established with a  properly  qualified solicitor  in charge,  whose  services,   the  firm  announces,  are  at  the  disposal  of its  customers  either  in the  drawing up of contracts  or agreements,   in throwing light  on  knotty points of law. or in any other  of the  numerous  ways  that it is possible  for a   legal  advisor tei  assist the  public.  Another office: has been set apart  and furnished by the firm to be employed as a directors' board room, or  a business conference room, which the  public are invited freely to make use  of without charge, the only stipulation being that notice of a day or two  be given the firm of a desire to make  Use: of the room for the purpose of a  meeting. Finally, it should be added..  (1 stenographer has been placed in an  Adjoining room, whose services niay  be reepiisitione-d at any time in the  conference: room a valuable a ill thai  all business men will appreciate.

Every once in a while cases crop up  which make thoughtful people'- doubt  wether the old  time-honored  custom  of trial by jury has  not  outliyed its  usefulness.    The Nahiunshan  trial  at  Vernon   last  week    when  a   Vernon  jury declared that the.  prisoner, was  not guilty after he had himself pleaded guilty and the Judge  had   charged  strongly for  conviction, was   another  ..istance.    This, however, is  not new  'for a. Vernon jury   which  has already  established the record of never having  hung a prisoner charged with murder  no niattiH-  how strong  the   evidence  was.     In some cases  the  killing  was  done in broad daylight in presence of  several witnesses who   tolel   the  court  plainly  what they had seen, but nevertheless the inevitable  verdict  "not  guilty" was   brought  in   and the prisoner- got off.      As   the   result   of   so  many eie-cuii-renecs of that kind   in the  assize   court    at   Vernon     it  is    well  known that the best  class   of   Vernon  citizens feel the situation   and are ill a  ini'.-isure humiliated  at   what they regard as grave   miscarriages   of justice  in their midst.    Apparently  there has  been too  much   criminal  law   in   that  community anel   a  crop    of   hayfield,  carpenter shop  and bar-room  lawyers  has   been    developed    who   leo.l   their  legal oats  (so to speak)'to  such   a   ele--  gree   that   when   they  are summoned  as   petit;-jurors   they  are   prepared   to  arrogate   to   themselves    the:   wisdom  and   prerogatives  of    supreme    court  judges   and   the-   legal   acumen   of  rei-  nowut-d   counsel for   the  defence.    In  October last   there was   witnessed the  instance of a murder trial in which  a  change of venue   hael been  applied for  a.nd granted  from the Cariboo district  to Vernon.    The prisoner had already  been tried twice.    In the first case the  prisoner had been  convicted  and condemned to be hung and the day of execution set  when a new trial  was allowed   and in the second case the jury  had disagreed, ten jurymen  saying he  was guilty and two holding out that  he was not.    Then  came the  Vernon  hearing when a jury acquitted him.  Thus 22 jurors said he was guilty and  11 said he was not   and  what  the If  .said went    for he was turned loose.  Bight after that trial the editor of the  Gazette sat in the court  room when  the jurors were all gathered ready to  be   empannelled    for    another    case  which was about to be   called   and  : report  of the trial.'      One   mai  j very   positively   that   Crippen  not-be convicted on the evidence:  produced    for he   (the juror) "would   not  hang a dog on that evidence."     Well,  a London jury   hung   Crippen   a lid he ' ^lar.-h sth. 1M1  is'dead now, but if he had   been   tried j._. . ~  in Vernon instead-and that big burly  juror had been on the  case  he ' might  have: been alive to-day.     But   what is  to be done about it?    If a. community  establishes  a reputation   of   this kind   *T*--MCK notice that- VV.

For a considerable  part of the spring the  precipitation"  was  unusually. light  .but this month  should   bring    the    season's    supply  pretty well up to the old imirk.  The .heavy rain on Friday night had  a tendency to loosen rocks on the  mountain side and' occasionally, they  could be heard rolling clown over the  talus nearer the bottom of the slopes.  Occurrences of this kind in the past  have generally- been attended with injury to-the fluinc and a consequent  temporary stoppage of operations but  they have been running in luck'for the  past year and not until Saturday when  a rock came down and bowled out a  portion of the ���������flume where it was  strung up by means of a cable has  there been any trouble. The damage  was immediately reported by the  flume tender and a gang of men put  on and it was ready to carry water  again after an interruption of some  five or six hours. This time came in  handy about the mill to de> some  necessary repairs.

A knot cir  ball  of young caterpillars wliich, although  not much larger than a large  marble cir alley, must have- contained  thousands of them that were not much  more  than  an  eighth of an  inch in  length  but everyone of them  living,  was   taken   from   a   young   fir   tree.  Spray pumps should  be  procured at  orrce and  the spray for which  the reL  cipe was  giverr in   the Gazette   a few  weeks ago should  be   applied.

It is poor encouragement to  constable in this part of the district to  exert themselyes collecting evidence  to stamp out horse-stealing and cattle-  lifting when such active svinpathy for  ���������offender** exists among the class of  men who appear to be constantly chosen for jury service irr the court at  Vernon.  Constable Sproule and the other  witnesses who attended the assizes in  Vernon last week returned on Tuesday. Constable Sproule was disgusted  with  the  result  of  the  Nahumshan  trial when a Vernon jury brought in a  verdict of  "not guilty" and had the  prisoner turned loose   after   he   had  himself pleaded guilty, and the judge  in   his  summing   up  indicated  very  ���������plainly to  the jury  that the verdict  brought in should be one of guilt proven,   The jury, however, got it into  their heads that the constables had not  exerted    themselves    sufficiently    in  gathering up evidence m*the prisoner's  behalf.   This  is the first case sent up  ���������from  Hedley   for   trial   at  a  higher  court which was not followed by conviction.  The fellow who stole Patten's  horse also  came very near getting off  as well.

Mrs. (Dr.) McLellan. of Okl.-ih-una-  and three children arrived in Kere-  nieos last week and with her- sister,  Miss McConnelj, will take up residence  on their fruit lot west of town.  , Tuesday, May 30th lias been fixed as  the elate for the; commencement of  ���������'.Entrance' Exams. Two candidates  from Keremeos will go up to Hedley  to write-.  Mr. Burnell  is now  assisting in the  'painting of  the  church  and  it is expected that   the work will be complet-  . eel in  a short time.. Those who have  not   yet handed  in  the subscriptions  are requested to elo so at an early date.  Dr. McEwen was at the Centre on  Monday evening examining a number  '. of candidates for the Modern Woodmen of .America, a camp of which is  being established by Organizer Anthony. The Dr. was accompanied by  Mrs. McEwen who visited her sister  Mrs. Parsons.  Mr. Hargreaves, .who last year took  tip a pre-emption on Crater Mountain  but has been spending the winter outside the valley, returned to Keremeoa  on Monday and has gone on op to his  pre-emption. With the building of  the wagon road up the Ashnola this  summer there is every prospect of  quite a stir in that part of the country.  T. C. Brooke and family intend moving this week for Princeton. Mr.  Brooke has entered into a partnership  agreement with Dr. Westwood -whereby he will have the management of  the hitter's large, ranch adjoining the  town. It is Mr. Brooke's intontions  to engage in the thorobred poultry  business, on a scale commensurate  with thegreater opportunities he will  have. He possesses the business ability  and energy to command success and  will, we feel sure, do well in the upper  valley, as he has here.  Last week Mr. T. S. Drennen received a wire from Mr. V. Gibson, of Vancouver, with whom he was formerly  associated in business, stating that he  had sold out in Vancouver and was  moving his family and effects to Keremeos and asking to have a house secured for his temporary use. Mr.  Drennen secured the house of G. Mil  burn on Tenth avenue and,is having it  renovated and fixed up ready for occupancy. Mr. Gibson has a half interest with Mr. Drennen in two fruit  lots adjoining the town and while  nothing definite as to his intentions  can be learned at present it is understood that he will build on the three  acre lot just south of town and make  his permanent residence here. Mr.  Gibson is a brother of Robert and Porter Gibson.  Last Saturday a young fellow, and  still younger girl, from across the line  arrived in town on tho morning train  in search of an issuer of marriage  linenses and pastor. At the time Keie-  nu-os happened to be without a preacher, at least without one with the necessary credentials to perform the ceremony required, and the young couple  were informed that their only chance  of having their wish gratified was for  them to go on to Hedley wluue Rev.  Mr. Cameron would be found. The  young main, who appeared to be in a  state of considerable excitement, had  lost so little time in making his business known and the tram being held  for some time on account' of the custom.", they were able to catch the train  anel continue-* their journey on to Hedley. There they found the minister  but the issuer of licenses bad run out  of blank forms and communication  with tlie issuer here over the- phone  was resorted to before: the necessary  preliminaries could be: arranged.

Last week a bunch of Dagoes, with  what appears to be connivance on the-  part of  the liveryman at Oroville, at  tempted   to steal a  march upon our  Custom's  Collector here,   who is  also  Immigration Officer, evidently thinking that that official was "easy". They,  however, found him very much on the  alert and the net result was that they  found-themselves back at the starting  point,  minus a good many, sheckles,  sneiit  on their  ill-considered  attempt  to evade the regulations and enter: the  ������������������promised land."   The party arrived  late at night and left early   the next  morning, via Wei by special, for Penticton, leaving the driver of the livery  rig to make explanations.     This individual    was    immediately     detained  awaiting  results and Mr. Frith chartered Mr.  Studebeckcrs big auto and  gave chase after the Dagoes.     They  were overhauled at the old Ford ranch  and  brought   back   to   town.     Their  protestations of innocence of the laws  were too thin  to satisfy the Immigration officer.    The fact that they chose  the slower and more tedious and expensive  method of driving into Keremeos in  preference to the train; their  corning in at night and leaving early  irr  the  morning was  too strong evidence against them,  and the only option allowed- them was to select their  own   method of  getting  out of the  country.     They elected to pay their  passage on the train  though told that  the liveryman  who brought   them in  would be required to take them out at  his own  expense.    The driver of the  livery rig was also given a wholesome  warning as to the liability he incurred  in his share of the transaction   and is  not likely to make a siniiliar attempt  again.     Two of the immigrants had  citizens'   papers   for   the   U.   S.   and  would have been admitted iir the proper way as they hael the necessary cash.  The    fact of  the   liveryman   driving  them  via Keremeos  instead of going  by way of Osoyoos and fair-view would  indicate that he rather expected to be  headed  off at the  first outport   and  wished to make as long a haul and se  cure as big a fee as possible.
