About an hour or so before their arrival inn Hedley on Tuesday word eame  over the phone that aim  anito party of  Great Northern Railway officials led  by preside-H* Louis* W. Hill  were-on  tlieir way liitiierand would have lunch  in the hotel Siniilknnreen.  They spent  Monday night at Puntiebon and came  over in three  aulos. Ma-.   Hill leading  the way  and settirrg   the pace in a  Packard muia-bout that looked as if it  hud been .eating up the iwiiles  by the  thousand  in all sorts of weather and  over all kinds of road.    With him in  the  runabout which  was handled by  Mr. Hill himself was  Mr.. C R. Gray,  of Portlaiiid,  President of the. North  Bank road,  who it .is reported  is to  succeed Mr. Louis Hill in the  pro.si-  dency of tlie Great Northern  system  in a few <l-ti3*s, -ami in the  other .tour-  cars were M. J. Cos-tello and F. W.  Graham,  of Seattle,  and  TI. A. Jackson.  E. C. Leedy,  C. B. Griffin,   J. 1,.  McDonald ������nd E. A. Ha-ndgi-ave, of-St.  Paul.  It is now iiliiiwist five years since  Louis Hill iiaade his first trip to Hedley in an auto and on that occasion  also he drove his own j-Luichiiie, but  had an expert cluiulfeur along in ease  of .accident to' the Hiuwiliiiie, Ikit on  this occasion he seems to have made  sucli progress in the manipulation of  them' that lie would be prepared to  tackle even the uiacuinist's duties.  When he made his trip the first time  in company with Chief Engineer Hoge-  land he had the honor of driving tlie  first auto that ever ran up the Siinil-  karneen valley and he had not forgotten an amusing incident that occurred on that occasion when an Indian down in front of Sehubert's got  very much excited arid culled out  "wagon run away."  Their stay in Hedley this time was  very short and immediately after  lunch they set out for Princeton and  points further up. Mr. Hill expressed  his regret that time would not permit  him to make another trip up the tramway to the Nickel Plate mine.  lb is hoped the present visit in company with the gentlemen who is to  take over his duties may portend an  advance movement for completion of  the line through to the coast.  HEDLEY GOLD MINING CO.  Comparison of Operations in First Quarter of 1912 with 1911  The following intesebting up-to-date  information was supplied by E. Jacobs  to the B. C. Mining Exchange. When  in New York he visited the offices of  the Hedley Gold Mining Co. and has  the following to say in reference thereto.  ���������"When this company's office was visited about the end of Jlarch returns  were absolutely lacking for the last  part of that month, but they were  available for the montlis of Jannnry  and February, and three weel<s of  March. The. secretary of the company  kindly supplied iuforiiiaiioii that made  it practicable to compare the results  of tlie "first quarter of the current year  with those of the corresponding period  of 1911, tlie figures for 1012 being approximate only for ten days.

His  place in Greenwood will be filled by  Walter Dewdney, of the G-t-and Forks  office.  It was cither at the end of IS92 or  the beginning of 1893 that he was  stationed by the government at Rock  Creek to conduct a Mining Recorder's  office a.nd attend to constabulary and  other government business in that  portion of the district, for at that time  the attention that was being given to  the mineral deposits of the Boundary  Creek district by prospectors demanded recognition, and the lawlessness  that characterized the Kettle River  District, also demanded attention, for  no such conduct as had taken place on  the Kettle River for a few years previous could be tolerated under the British Flag, j"t was at Rock Creek the  editor of the Gazette- met him in August 1S93.  Shortly afterwards the oflice was  moved to Midway to be nearer the  Boundary Creek camps and still later,  or in Joe Martins regine, it was moved  to Greenwood. He was always a most  efficient officer and the work of the  Greenwood office was always carefully  conducted. His friends all wish him  prosperity in his new field.  The writ has been issued for the  by-election in Kootenay. The Returning officer, Cupt. I). C. McMorris, of  Nelson fixed the day of polling. It is  to take place on June 20.  Total 16,958 $76,676.23  An analysis of the foregoing figures  will result in showing for the first  three months of 1912 an estimated in  crease in quantity of ore crushed of  nearly 35 per cent., and in profit" of-  about 34 per cent. It may be stated  that the tonnage for the latter part of  M-arch has been estimated by Mr.  Jacobs as similar to the average daily  quantity for the immediately preceding 21 days, while the profit has been  calculated on the basis of that of the  average profit per- ton of ore milled  throughout the whole of 1911, namely  $5.34. This estimate should prove  conservative, for the reason that the  exigencies of doing throughly good  mining work required the breaking  down of a- quantity eif rock that reduced the average assay value of the  5,010 tons of ore milled in February to  $9.49 per ton, which was $1.06 per,ton  lower than the lowest monthly average during tile whole of 1911. As the  average assay value for orre month in  1911 was .$14.36 per ton, it may be reasonable to look for a similarly- high  average for at least one month of 1912  Report That Contract for Forty Miles  Had Been Let is Not Generally  Credited  A report came from Kereineos em  Saturday to the effect that a contract  had been let for another forty miles of  railway construction on the V.V. ������fc E.  beyond Tulameeii. The information  was given out by a prominent citizen  of Kereineos who gave as his authority  chief engineer J. H. Kennedy.  The reason given by some for the  beMef that there must be some mistake about it, is that with the number  of surveys and revisions of the route  that have been made a final revision  which is now .being, made is far from  completion. Dick Carew who has been  working with the survey party at  present engaged on revision* was in  town this week and gives as his opinion tliat there could be 110 truth iii the  rumor.  Forty miles as the crow flies would  put the road considerably over the  summit but the winding character of  the route which must be taken would  more than exhaust the margin/Should  the report even have a small degree of  foundation and some effort be made,  by tlie Great Northern to lessen the  existing gap between the eastern and  western ends it will be some relief  from the almost boorish sphinx like  silence which prevailed for so long.  The*- K. V. people are less reticent as  to their intentions to go ahead and  complete the road through, and it is  quite possible that the Great Northern  may begin to see that their policy of.  inaction has been carried far enough  and it is time for them to make a  change.  It is now over- seven years since the  start was mahe to build westward  from Midway and so far only 105 miles  have been completed. In a little more  tlian half that time the C. P. R. spanned the continent with theirsystem in  the'days'-'when there were no such  things as track laying machines and  when the greater part of their route  was fully a thousand miles distant  from tiny other railway and the transportation of supplies had to be done  with ox teams.  WHERE DOCTORS DIFFER  Mora Evidence on The Wood Tick Question���������Some High Authorities  Sceptical  Following the professional opinion  of Dr. Rose, of Kootenay, as to the  bad effect'of the'common" wood tick in.  causing spotted fever and meningitis,,  there was published in many papers-  the' opinion of the Dominion entomologist who doubted the accuracy of  the conclusions arrived at.  The Nelson  News  now  brings forward the following testimony to show  tliat it* former warning  was given on  the best of grounds.     The News says::  "Further evidence of the danger  which lies in the bite of a, woodtick is  given in a letter which has been received by J. W. Cockle eif Kaslo from.  Charles F. James of the Poorman-  mine.  ���������'���������Two large woodticks fastening  themselves on the nape of the neck of  his little daughter caused the child  to develop all the symptoms of spinal  meningitis. First of all tottering as if  striken with some weakness the child  completely lost the use of her legs audi  voice and did not recover until Dr-  W. O. Rose had removed the venomous insects.'I  THE PRUDENT MAN'S DUTY  Some Tell Tale Statistics That Should  Strike Home  RATS, TEDDY, RATS  Roosevelt Tries to  Crawfish Out of His  Tell-Tale Admission to Taft  to offset the 1111 usually low average for  last February.  It is noteworthy, as indicating the  efficiency of the gold saving appliances and methods of the Hedley Gold  Mining Company, that in 1911 there  were made an average, extraction of  91 per cent, of the gold contained in  the ore milled..  A LOSING SPECULATION  That is What Canada is Up   Against  When She Sells Pulpwood Instead  of Paper Pulp  Monetary Times  From United States  forest products  bulletins it is seen that approximately  two-fifths  eif the  pulpwood imported  by that country is  manufactured into  mechanical pulp, and   three-fifths into  sulphite pulp, anel that a cord of wood  produces about a   ton of mechanical  pulp,  or  half a  ton of chemical pulp.  This means that from the 943,141 cords  of Canadian   pulpwood   sent   to   thc^  United States, 37725(5 tons of mechanical pulp wvvu made,  and 2S2,992 tons  of  Sulphite pulp.     The value eif these  01)0,218 tons of pulp, for which, in the  form   of   pulpwood,   Canada received  $(j,210,042,  was  at the aver age price  ($20.49 per ton) paid in  191.0 by United  States  importers   of wood  pulp, $13,-  52S,-1S1.    Thus Canada did not get one  half the amount she would  have-  received if all pulpwood were converted  into  pulp  011  Canadian  soil.    As tlie  United  State's does not exports percent,   of the amount  it��������� iinpoits, there  need   be-   no   fear   that a  market  for  Canadian wood pulp would be lacking.  The  United  States  would  pay $20.49  per ton  for the  wood pulp  instead of  $0.5S per cord of pulpwood,  Halifax, N. S., May 8.���������The "Morning Chronicle" prints a lengthy tele-  grain from Mr. Hank Harper, Colonel  Roosevelt's 'secretary, in reply to a  telegraphic inquiry as to the meaning  of Col. Roosevelt's words, "political  reasons" in his letter to, President  Taft. Mr. Harper states that the m-  terpretsttion placed upon his words hy  the Canadian Conservative press, implying that he (Roosevelt) favored the  annexation of Canada, was not war-  runted by facts. Roosevelt's meaning  was only that reciprocity would increase the friendly relations of the  two countries.  Col. Roosevelt, Mr. Harper states,  has always done everything in his  power to enable the two nations to  live together in peace and harmony,  each according the other the fullest  measure of respect and esteyin. Specifically has Col. Roosevelt always  spoken of and treated Canada as a  friendly nation, on whose independence he would not dream of encouraging an aggression.  How necessary is the creation of art  estate through life insurance is shown  by ah investigation made iii New-  York State���������where conditions are  doubtless very similar to those in this  country���������by a professor of Colunibi-i  University.   He found that:��������� <  1st Out of 10,000 persons over 25  years of age dying, only 3,351 left any  estates whatever. Of those who were  heads of families only one half  left any estate; the other half left  nothing, not even a savings bank account.  2nd. Of the 3,351 who left estates,  only 884 were worth over- $5,000.  3rd Sixty-six per cent, of those dying left no estates whatever, twenty-  five per cent, left estates of less than  .$5,000. the average estate being $1,292  and less than nine per cent, of the  total left estates valued at $5,000 01-  over.  This    lamentable   condition    would  probably be duplicated in Canada if'  the facts  were   brought out, and-ho-  stronger argument could be used as to  the importance of providing for one's  dependants    through    the    moderate-,  cost plans of the life companies.  PERHAPS  The Great Northern   Now  Promise To-  Move Faster���������We'll See  Now in view eif the fact that in January, 1911. Taft wrote Roosevelt explaining what he had been able to effect with Patterson and Fielding and  expressed the belief that reciprocity  woulel "make Canada, only an adjunct  of the United States" and would  "transfer all Canada's important  business to Chicago and New York  with her bank credits and everything  else" and that Roosevelt replied "My  dear Taft, 1 approve of what you rito-  .SOSK TO    DIMVITII   CANADA.       It is ad-  niiiable in every way," this latest disavowal of the irrepressible Teddy  must be taken with a whole bag of  salt.  Spokane, May 10-Louis W. Hill,  retiring president of the Great Northern; Carl B. Gray, as president of the  "North Bank" lines, met here yesterday and left shortly for Portland.  Mr. Gray announced that the Great  Northern would begin immediately a  campaign of expansion and development in the Northwest. lie declared  that appropriations for extending linens  into virgin territory in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia would be;  asked immediately after the formal  meeting of the new board of directors  with the new executives.  Mr. Gray will hand over the presidency of the "North Bank" line to Mr  Young en May 15th, and on May 19th  Louis W. Hill's birthday, he will take  over the presidency of the Great  Northern.  The success of tho Hidden Creek  property at Goose Bay is having the  effect of drawing much public attention to that district.  MINING  NOTES  The present year bids fair to be by  all odds the most profitable the British Columbia Copper Company has  ever had. The sme.ter is doinsr better  work than ever both as to increased  tonnage and economical extraction.  A party ofMcGill students accompanied by one of their professors is  making a torn-of the mining sections  of British Columbia, and have portions  of the Kootenay and tlu> Bounda-ry  districb in their itinerary.

Liberal papers in Canada have  ceased to think kindly of President  Taft. This time twelve months ago  the president was a favorite with all  of them and he really deserves their  admiration now more than he did  then. Surely a man has a greater  right to be admired when he is telling  the truth straight-forward than when  he is in the act of deceiving; but the  admiration of Liberal papers in Canada was unstinted during the time  when Taft was plotting Canada's  undoing, arid is changed to execration when he. shows a willingness to  be straightforward anel candid.

While   there   is  something most pathetic in the- tiagic  end of the brave old captain  after so  long a career of uninterrupted success  before he met with the one mishap on  the   Olympic    the fact gains  ground  that his one great fault seems to have  been   that  of over confidence   in  his  ship.     An incident is related that he  expresseid himself in New York in 1907  on the occasion of his arrival there as  captain of the Adriatic on her maiden  trip in terms that read strangely now.  He then said:  "Shipbuilding is such a perfect art  nowadays that absolute disaster involving the passengers, is inconceivable. Whatever happens, there will  be time enough before the vessel  sinks to save the life of every person  on board. I will go 11 bit further. I  will say that I cannot irrragine any  condition that would cause the vessel  to founder. Modern shipbuilding  has gone beyond that."

In her dilemma  she applied for information to at least  fifteen young  men  at   the Brooklyn  hotel,    but   without   success;   seeing  another gentleman on the street who  had the appearance of being an old-  timer, she applied to him for guidance  "Don't know  mum",  was the reply.  "Do you mean  to tell me that you  don't know where the church is!  How  long have   you been  in  this town?"  queried the searcher for a tabernacle.  "About ten years, mum,     You see I  never 'tend church",  was the apologetic reply of the sinner.     "Well, it's  about time you commenced", was the  parting words of the astonished lady.  Later an   intelligent   looking   young  man  was found   who  conducted the  ladies  to the  K. P.
