Al Secretary  London, April 80.���������Hon Richard Mc-  Bride, premier of British Columbia,  who is now on a hurried visit to London, is much interested in President  Tuft's admission to Colonel Roosevelt  that Canada., through reciprocity,  would have become an adjunct to the  United States.  "I have never seen such a blunt admission before, but it correctly represents the view, we took in Canada before the general election.  ���������'The American rcprocity movement"  continued Mr. McBi-ide, "was deliberately designed to detach Canada from  the Imperial reciprocity scheme and  defeat the coming preferential policy  to which Canada, is fervently devoted.  In a week's time, Premier Borden, as  I hope, will give the people of England his views on this and other questions of vast import. You will find  him a strong straight and sterling  man, a good Canadian and a great imperialist."  Speaking of the Dominion's naval  policy Premier McBride declared that  the Canadian electors condemned the  "inadequate and inert naval scheme  of the Laurier government, and the  responsibility had now been assumed  by the Borden administration, superseding it with a broader and more  effective plan. This is a matter which  closely effects British Columbia. Since  the withdrawal of the Pacific squadron we have been left practically defenceless on the Pacific coast. We  have been greatly impressed'with'the  vigor and strength of Hon. Winston  Churchill's naval policy and we have  hope and confidence that any naval  scheme in which he and the Canadian  Government concur will restore to  British Columbia a full and fair  measure of naval protection."

On Saturday Jack Hardman slipped  on an icy place ou the incline leading  into Sunuyside No. 3 and being unable to regain his footing he slid the  whole way to the bottom a distance of  about a hundred feet. He sustained  rather serious injuries among which  was a -fracture of the skull, one rib  broken and one of his wrists. There  were also numerous other bruises on  different parts of the body which is  not to be wondered at considering the  many obstacles he was liable to meet  in the fall.  It is quite cold and wintery up there  yet and for some reason or other the  water in the mine at that particular  part of the underground workings is  unusually cold and sometimes freezes  as it falls from the stopes.  The injured man is doing as well as  could be expected under the circum  stances. He came out from England  about a- year ago and is a cousin of  Mrs. Dr. McEwen. The doctor stayed  with him at the mine Saturday night  and on Sunday he was brought down  to the hospital.  After years of callous indifference  Hedley has at last wakened up to the  necessity of making some decided  move to obtain fire protection. At the  meeting which, was announced in these  columns two weeks ago.T. H. Rother-  hani and G. H. Sproule were appointed a committee to circulate a subscription list to obtain funds to buy hose  and other equipment. When they had  completed their canvass another meeting was called at the Commercial on  Friday evening last. At this meeting  F. H. French was appointed chairman  and A. Megraw secretary.  T. H. Rotherhain had previously  written the manufacturers of fire hose  and other fire-fighting equipment and  obtained samples and prices.  The subscription list shows that $200  had been subscribed and the committee were confident of .being able to secure about $50 more.  It was decided to obtain a good  grade of cotton wove hose and Messrs.  Rotherham and Sproule were appointed a committee to make the purchase.  The number of feet decided on was six  hundred and the Hedley Gold Mining Co. have helped out wonderfully  in enabling the town to solve the difficulty by generously agreeing to allow  the use of the water from their mains  free of charge and supply the hydrants  as well if the town would bear the expense of making the necessary excavations and pay for.any other work connected with the installation.  The secretary was instructed to  write the secretary of the Canadian  Fire Underwriters' Association and  advise them of what steps had been  taken. Also to make inquiries of them  as to the effect it would have on the  rates and obtain from them any direction as to what requirements were  necessary to obtain a substantial reduction.  It is expected that the equipment  will be here in about a fortnight and  on its arrival another public meeting  will be held to organize a fire company.  A Pest Common to This Part of British  Columbia  "That wood ticks are sometimes the  means of infecting with spinal meningitis persons win'in they bite is well  recognized in the medical profession  in British Columbia; In the past 13  years I have had four cases where this  disease could be directly traced to  wood ticks and two of these cases  were fatal," said Dr. W. O. Rose last  night when asked regarding the statement as to the danger of wood ticks  which was made in yesterday morning's Daily News by William J. Cockle  of Kaslo.  "It is, however usually only when  the insects infect the nape of the neck  that spinal meningitis results", continued Dr. Rose. "When they bite  other parts of the body local paralysis,  eczema and other diseases of a. local  nature frequently follow,"  Dr. Rose stated that it was only two  weeks ago that he received a letter  from an old friend. Prof. J. T. Todd,  professor of parasotology at McGill  university asking him if he could supply any information as to any cases.of  persons being infected with spinal  meningitis or spotted fever as a result  of the bites of wood ticks, the professor stating that he had heard of cises  in Montana and B.

The customs receips for the month of  April just closing reached $8,075,002.2;).  The figures for April 1011 were $5,500,-  Lt-2,5S, so that the increase on the  showing of the present month amounts  to $2,560,S10.07.  ARE YOU REPRESENTED  "No   business    man   in   any   town  should allow a.  newspaper published  in  his  town  to go  without his name  and  business being mentioned some  where in  its columns," says  an  tex-  change.     This applies to all kinds of  business���������general  stores,  dry   goods,  grocers, furniture   dealers,   manufacturing     establishments,     automobile  dealers,  mechanics, professional men,  and, in fact, all class of business men.  This  does  not mean  that you should  have a whole or half or even a quarter  of a  page  ad. in   every issue of the  paper,  but 'your  name and   business  should  be  mentioned if you do  not  use  more   than  a two  line space.    A  stranger   picking    up   a    newspaper  should  be able  to tell just what business is represented'in   a town by looking at the business  represented in the  paper,     This is the host possible town  advertiser.     The   man  who does not  advertise his business eloes an  injustice  to himself and his town.     He is  the man  who expects   the  newspaper  to do   the most free  boosting for his  town.    The  man who insists on sharing the business that comes to a town  but refuses to -advertise his business is  not a  valuable addition to any town.  The  life, of any  town depends  upon  the live wideawake and liberal advertising business men.  Vancouver, B. C, May 1���������-"We will  not tolerate the red flag of anarchy.  A man has a right to work if he wishes  to and you must respect that right,"  said Judge Howay at New Westminster today sentencing five Industrial  Workers for unlawfully besetting and  threatening a cook employed by contractor George Chow at Camp No. 5 of  the Canadian Northern right of way  near Spuzzuni, on April loth. Jack  Thompson and Eric Smith.were each  given a month; the other three Lyman  Georgeson and Bolstead, each the  maximum, three, months hard labor.  Canadian   Car Company   Looking   For  Site for $1,500,000 Plant  Vancouver, B. C. May 4.���������Mr. Wilson W. Butler, vice-president of the  Canadian Steel Foundries, Limited,  and the Canadian Car Co., Limited,  with a joint capital of $25,000,000 arrived in Vancouver yesterday morning. He will begin an investigation  today of Vancouver and the surround-  ing municipalities including Port  Mann, Coquitlam, Lulu island and  other districts in the vicinity of this  city,  for the  purpose of selecting  a  i'  suitable site for a car building plant.  ' The proposed plant will be established in a location which Mr. Butler decides is most suitable. - It will employ  from 1000 to 1200 men and will cost in  the neighborhood of $1,500,000. The  present plants of the company consist  of the Amherst Wooden Car Works,  S. N., Dominion Car & Foundry at  Lachine, Canadian Car plant at Tur-  cotte, Ont.-, Canadian Steel Foundries,  at Welland, Ont., foundries for couplers and other railway accessories;  Montreal Styel Works for car wheels  and locomotive castings. On his way-  west Mr. Butler selected a. site at Fort  William i'or'a new plant to cost more  than a million and a half dollars.  Last year the output of the three  car building plants controlled by the  companies was over $10,000,000. The  employment roll of the companies is  over 6000 men. It needs only the favorable report of Mr. Butler for the head  office to commence preparations for  the erection of the new plant in the  vicinity of Vancouver.

GENERAL NEWS  HOT & COLD BATHS  NTcxt door north of Grand Union Hotel  [SUBSCRIBE FOR THE   GAZETTE  It might have been better to keep  the four desperadoes, Brown, Bonnar  and the two Mecuins, at Stony Mountain penitentiary than to have sent  them to Kingston for they managed  to break away from the hired help at  the Kingston institution and while  the first two were re-captured within  a few hours the Mecuins who were the  worst of the bunch have so far eluded  their pursuers*.  A preat caravan of wagons and men  pulled out from this place for Penticton Wednesday morning. Monday  and Tuesday evenings upward of 100  laborers arrived at this point to go on  up to Penticton, where they are to  work on the Kettle Valley railroad. It  was almost impossible to find sleeping  quarters for the 1110b, and numbers  slept in box cars, or- anywhere they  could turn in out of the weather. The  town presented a lively appearance  while the gang way on the street, and  it can be said on their behalf thut it  was a quiet and orderly lot of men,  there not being an infringement of  the law while they were in town.���������  Oroville Gazette.

Sidney Fisher is taking a hand  in the provincial elections in Quebec  but is not a candidate in any constituency.  Nelson is to have a new opera house.  The capacity of the Portland Cement  factory at Blah-more is to be doubled  this year.  Canada's coal consumption last year  amounted to 24,100,000 tons.  Capt. Bernier, commander of the  government ship Arctic, has been suspended pending an investigation into  charges made against him for grafting  He was accused with other members  of his crew of trying to make some  big money on the side by engaging in  the fur trade with the natives of the  northern regions.  The Quebec elections are being held  this month arid both parties have  their candidates in the field.  For biting sarcasm the editorial  which appeared in last week's Oroville  Gazette giving a truthful trenchant  pen picture of the many-sided Teddy-  is a literary gem. It begins with, these  two paragraphs:  "Col. Theodore Roosevelt, cowboy,  civil seryice. commissioner, lieutenant  colonel of Rough Riders, governor,  vice-president, president, editor, author, philosopher, naturalist, hunter,  traveller, free-trader, high protectionist, regular republican, radical insurgent, progressive republican and third  term candidate, for president, is the  most versatile, adroit, masterful politician this country has ever produced.  He is a great man, a wonderful reader,  a marvelous manipulator and a traiis-  cendant liar.  "He is the most engaging, charming,  irresistible of men. We adore him  for his fearlessness, his aggressiveness.  for the things he says lie will do and  never does, for the things he does and  denounces abhorrent, for his bulldoz-  his inconsistencies and his hypocracy.  His virtues are the virtues of the gods:  his vices, ah, they are only human.  This is why we can worship him as a  demigod, and at the same time love  him familiarly, implicitly, blindly.  Nothing that he does or may ele> can  shake our confidence in him. Nothing  that he says, has said or may say can  destroy our faith."  And throughout seven paragraphs  more it enumerates the deadly incidents that prove the point. Then it  winds up with the following:  "Is he not a marvel? Who else could  change his position so rapidly arid  completely, could revile so mails'- good  people, could boast with such monstrous egoism, could bluster and bluff  arrd four-flush so constantly, could  display such inconstancy, inconsistency and intemperance, could juggle the  truth, quibble, equivocate and prevaricate with such shameless effrontery and yet get away with it all? Who  else could do this but Roosevelt? Echo  answereth none. This does not ���������'explain why he is great, it merely evidences his greatness. He towers alone,  a tremendous force, a consummate  schemer, an appallingly ambitious pol-  itican. Another Caesar or Napoleon,  ready to catch the nearest way that  may lead to the goal he seeks.

THE BANK OF  use  their  vote*  They,   the British  electors, may have to vote on the  question of Home Rule, for 'Ireland,  and only a few mouths ago tlie electors of Cauadst were required to decide whether they should accept or  reject a .-.cheine for reciprocity with  the United States which had been  hatched in Washington and agreed to  by Sir Wilfrid Laurier and a few of  his most intiuentiul if most subservient followers.  Sir Wilfrid  was determined at first  to force  it    through   parliament   by  means of  his brute majority, just as  Mr. Asquith  proposes  to-do   in   the  case e>f Home Rule,   but the Csinadian  opposition put up  too strong a fight  in   the  House;   arid  many   influential  Liberals  through    the   country   who  were   not afraid  of  the  party  whip,  gave Sir Wilfrid  to  understand  that  be had   better give the people sin  opportunity   to  have some say   in   the  matter   and so it went to the country  as   the  leading  issue    in  an   election  esinipsiign.  Now   while  the.   people    of Canada  were engaged in deciding this nioinen-  ous question which many good people  in  Canada,  felt  was   si  blow   sit  their  national    existence,   the Taft-Laiirier  combination   were  receiving the   support  of  the   Asquith-Churchill-Lloyd  George crowd in   England   who  were  trying  to    re-assure    Canadians    and  other Britishers  that there  was nothing   to   fear   from    the   big   man   at  Washington.    But the- Canadian  electors   thought  they   knew better   smd  they deeieled the thing  for themselves  by putting reciprocity quietly to sleep.  Now   it transpires  that the  Canadian  electors   were able  te> estimate  at its  prope*r    value    the   punk    advice   of  Aseiuith,    Churchill,    Lloyd   George,  Laurier, Cartwright, Patterson, Fielding,  parson   McDonald,  Tuft,  Hearst  et al.  for  at Isist  the eat is out of the  'bug in Taft's letter to Roosevelt   now  made public  for the.  first time.     The  Washington  game   subscribed to   by  Laurier anel Asquith is now explained  by its thimble-rigger himself as  that  ot "making Csinada  only   an  adjunct  of  the United  States." It wsis to  "transfer  all Canada's important business to Chicago and New York, with  'There is really  no  blame  to President Taft coming from Csinadians   in  the part he played  in promoting  the  reciprocity ileal  with which  he humbugged Laurier, Fielding and Patterson.    He wsis elected by the people of  the United States   to  do  the: best for  that country  he could   and he would  hsive been neglecting his opportunity  if he hsid not tried to squeeze out a  powerful riv.il  on   the North American continent when such opportunity  presented itself.    A bargain  by which  Canada could have been  made  "only  an adjunct to the. United States" with  her    "bank    credits    transferred    to  Chicago and New York", and Laurier  smd  his  associates and Asquith  smd  his associates    sill  nicely   hypnotized  for the occasion, wsis the opportunity  of a lifetime,  and  why shouldn't he  avail himself of it?   The whole country, whose chief executive  officer he  was. glories in   a sharp desil  and expects  it of sill  her sons   whom   she  elevates to the high positions in. which  they may best serve her.    Why then  disappoint them ?    Viewing it in this  light,''Canadians are not blaming Taft.  A.

On Friday morning a match  took place between Mrs. Rotherlisini  and Miss Emily .Tackson for the! coveted honor which had formerly been  awarded by the handicap committee  to Mrs. Rotherham.
