Lawson some months ago and which  is still being continued, is proving one  of the most expensive undertakings  that Boston's best-known millionaire  has ever attempted. Nearly' ,$100,000  has already been spent and the work is  scarcely, more than half completed.  With seventy-nine persons employed  especially for this one purpose,  Mr.  Lawson  has   sent'out,   addressed -to  people in every state in this country,  iii the provinces and over a large part  of Europe, 3,000,000 pieces of mail matter containing information of his project of' insurance reformation.    This  prodigious task has been under   the  direct care and supervision of C A.  Chandler, vice-president of the H. B.  Humphreys Advertising Agency,  and  a warm personal friend of Mr.Lawson.  Mr. Lawson started his task with the  desire to get the voting proxies of all  the life insurance'policy holders,  turn  them over to a committee made up of  representative   men   from all of the  leading  professions, depending upon  this committee as representatives of  the   policy   holders   to   demand   and  secure the retirement of those insurance officials found guilty of malfeasance in. office.;s  The total number of pieces of mail  which has been sent out has cost $40,-  000 for postage. Of this amount .$30,000  has been expended on 1-cent packages  and the rest on packages which have  been sealed.  Three different sets of bulletins  pri n ted on heavy papery make up a con-  siderable part of this matter. These  documents are about three feet square.  The first set of 200,000 of the- No. l's  cost .$2000 to print. To the thousands  of persons who have already sent in  proxies from five to 100 of the No. 2  proxies are delivered.  The last set of bulletins, printed on  heavy paper, and with two colors'of  ink, numbering 800,000, cost Mr. Law-  son $8,000. These,figures show that  about $59,000 has been expended on  material, printing and postage of' the  |. bulletins alone.  These large sheets of paper must be  folded by hand, so for this work 36  people*are employed. For addressing  tho wrappers 17 people are kept busy.  At the end of one'of Mr*. Lawson's magazine articles blank coupons were  printed. Up to yesterday 16,000 of these  filled out coupons had been returned.  Every one of these has to be tabulated, showing the sender's name, his address, the amount of his insurance and  the company with which he is connected.    For this work  17 stenographers  are employed.  Each postal delivery brings in   hun-  I dreds of pounds of letters to Mr. Law-  ! son, and to open these he has a force  j of 12 girls.    All of this extra work has  ���������J to be done in big offices on Washing-  ! ton street. Both of Mr. Lawson's suites  j of rooms in Young's Hotel and at 33  | State street are already overcrowded.  j     So tremendous has the amount of  j correspondence and manuscript matter  i "become that Mr. Lawson  has hired a  j printing establishment to do his work  ��������� exclusively.    Three presses are kept  going twelve- hours a. day. and still the  work is not caught up.   When the No.  2 bulletins were sent out Mr.  Lawson  announced that if any persons desired  more blanks they were to wire him at  his expense.   Hundreds of telegrams  have been received on this order, and  20,000 blanks have  been returned to  those asking for them.  To  the   29,000 publications   in  this  [ country Mr. Lawson has sent copies of  each of his bulletins announcing that  the publications are at- liberty to use  the matter, and Mr. Lawson will stand  back of his utterances.   All items of  expense considered, the total outlay on  Mr. Lawson's part has now reached  nearly $100,000.  This  Tinie  C.  It Was the V. V. A E.  P. R.    Scrapping.  and  The coast papers last week were full  of railway wars, with Midway, as the  scene of the conflict. As usual though,  with their lack of a proper understanding of the ��������� situation, half of their  matter,was wrong.  This was no continuation of the  Myerhoff 'incident, which was an affair  of track-laying between the (J. P. R.  and Midway & Vernon at a crossing,  but occurred over on Myers Creek,  and in this as well as in the matter adjudicated upon by Justice Morrison at  Vancouver on November -1th. the position held by the C. P. R. was not that  of a 'railroad seeking right of way for  its tracks, butof a land-holder resisting  another railroad from crossing or  otherwise- using its lands.  In Myers Creek canyon the V. V. A:  E. have a long tunnel, about 800 feet.  Avhich they wished to rush through as  quickly as possible, and to do so proceeded to work in from both ends.  Now this whole tunnel is on V.V. & E.  g'i;ound. the right of way for which  they have duly secured, but at its  eastern end the line, of the C. P. R.'s  Columbia & Western land grant runs,  arid left no room to dump the waste  rock taken from this end of the tunnel  without dumping on C.P.R. land. This  the C. P. R. objected to and employed  a force of 150 men to prevent them.  This force was under the command of  Fred .McLaine. who is now dubbed  "the general," and for two whole days  a force varying from 350 to 600 men  drew wages for black-guarding and  swearing at each other, and having  occasional tugs of warwith iron rails  for cable, until finally the V. A": & E.  men were drawn off.  Legally, for the first time, the Great  Northern men exceeded their powers  by going a step beyond what the letter  of the law required.   Heretofore every  move in their 'diplomatic'negotiations  has been correct, but they had no reason to think that so much would have  been made of this.  However; the cause  of their.transgression is more to their  credit than  to their discredit,  for it  came about in this way :   No power is  given to a railway to change its route  a single foot after the plans have been  approved.     The plans fyled and approved for the track  through Myers  Creek canyon,  were not, on.a closer  examination by   the   chief  engineer,  quite to his liking.    Knowing what a  stickler Mr. Hill is for perfect road-bed  the chief engineer decided to-increase  the length of the tunnel so as  to get  further away from the shattered rim,  and by doing so the end of the  tunnel  was brought nearer to the C.P.R. land.  This was the first thing that put them  legally in'the'wrong, although morally  they were right in  thus considering  public safety by endeavoring to obtain  the  best  possible  track.    Their'next  mis-step was  in giving Justice Morrison's order of November 4th too wide  an interpretation.    That order- was restricted to the lot through  which  ex-  PROGRESS ON RAILWAY  Great Northern, is Only Road  Building-.  Out of Midway Which Shows'  No   Abatement.  PASSENGER  SERVICE SQON TO  BE  PUT. ON.  Railway building on the V. V. <fc E.  is being earned on with the utmost  vigor out of Midway, and large quantities of material and supplies continue  to arrive at Midway daily.  The road is ballasted from Curlew to  Ferry, and the grading done at Midway on Riverside addition ready for  laying down the tracks and sidings.  The Great Northern 'station is to be  located inside the Y. with a freight  depot on the American side for the accommodation of those across the line.  "The passenger service to Midway  will be started in a few days, when a  change of time in the running of all  stages out of Midway will likely be  made.  The completion of the tunnel in  Myers Creek canyon, is being rushed  with all possible'speed, as all the grading and track-laying between it and  Midway can be completed in a short  time, and the track must stop there  until such time as this tunnel lias been  completed.  The announcement' is made that the  long tunnel between Oiovillc and the  International boundary will be completed in May, which means the arrival of trains in Hedley two or three  months earlier than the engineers had  been counting on.  The rapid, progress being made on  the grades between Midway and the  Myers Creek tunnel and between /  Myers Creek and Oroville give good  ground for hope, that possibly before  spring there may be a passenger service to Oroville. At present almost  every mile of the road is covered with  construction gangs along the south  bank of Rock Creek, around-'Baker  Creek and over Sidley Mountain, pusl  Molson. Between Molson and Oroville  there are also several camps, but this  portion of the work is more handicap-"  peel from scarcity of men than that on  the Canadian side.  AtVKkrejieos'-'.  an engineers'camp went in last week,  and fifty teams that have been engaged -."  on irrigation works at Langton are being brought in to work on the grades.  The Midway & Vernon company  have almost completed the first section  of ten miles of their track out of Midway. Their intention was to-place  their station on the river bank where  the Greenwood branch of the V. V. &���������  E. joins in, but the Midway Townsite  Company are credited with holding  them up on right of way to the tune of  $250 per lot for 25-foot lots.  Four   teams   arrived, yesterday   at .  Armstrong's, 12 miles below Keremeos.  to begin work on a sub-contract.  propriation proceedings were instituted, viz.. 2707, and did not necessarily  apply to 2703. on which the waste rock  was being dumped into a waste ravine.  The C. P. K. were granted an injunction to prevent the.V. V. iV K. from  dumping the rock there until authority to do so had been duly obtained,  but the injunction was unnecessary as  the V. V. A: E. men had been withdrawn before the order was received.  Meanwhile the V. V it E. have applied  again for expropriation on this ground  as well, and the C.P.R. are out in hard  cash more money than would build  several miles of track for them.  ELECTED. A   KING.

The-������visit of Premier- McBride and
the Chief Commissioner of Lands and
Works to Similkameeii; iriarks. an important event. That the whole district
impressed them most, favorablyis evident from the views which they expressed thereon. Neither were these
, views given, as reluctant admissions,
Imt'exprVssod with a 'warmth and en-
"thu'siasm that argued positive conviction. Visits of this kind are always
productive of-good. Not only does it
enable tlui ministers to get'a proper
understanding of the needs and resources of the district, but it gives the
people an opportunity'to size, up those
to whom they have intrusted the conductor their- public affairs. Now the
people of .Similkameen have heard
Premier McBride's straight-forward
sti'tement, and have had an opportunity to verify most of what he told
them, and the general verdict is that
it was genuine. From the narrowness
of its m:
been desc
the press as a
policies more valuable.    He  even  furnishes detail as to the manner in which
these   proxies .will  he  used,  and  his
whole proposition is so  disinterested,
fair and altogether above hoard  that
it seems almost impossible to conceive
of there being any hesitation.    The efforts  being  put forth by.those now in
control   of the  companies  lo  thwart
him and  render  his  work   inelVective
should kill all hesitancy on the part of
policy-holders to send him their proxies.    As for Canadian  companies, the
description which Mr. Lawson gi vos of
that New Jersey law which was framed
to throw dust in the eyes of the people
of that state, should  make Canadian
people careful   that a similar farce is
not perpetrated  here.    Already there,
are signs that such an attempt may be.
made, for it is  well  known   the pull
that grafters of the  Cox,  Jaffray and
Pellat type  have, in Canadian a (lairs,
as witness the Crow's Nest Pass steal
and the way that Cox dominated G.T.
P. negotiations with-Premier Laurier.
Canadians    want    a    thorough    and
searching examination into the affairs
of Canadian life insurance companies,
and if legislation is required to further
safe-guard , the   interests   of    policyholders and the.public,  let it be effective, instead of the miserable abortion
which Lawson describes as disgracing
the statute books of the state of New
Jersey and  insulting  the  intelligence
of its  people.    Now   is  the time impolicy-holders to strike for their rights,
arid no stone should  deleft unturned
to   back  up the efforts of strong men
of the. Lawson type.

brought home to  one  when listening
to instance after instance  told  by the
ministers and the representative of the
district, of measures, often drastic and
uupopular, but absolutely necessary in
the best interests of the. province. Unit
were grappled with by the/government
in a manner which proved  most conclusively that they cared   not a whit
for  their  political   futures  but   were
prepared  to  act  as occasion  and the
best interests of the province demanded,   and let popularity take care of itself. The enthusiasm which the district
itself seemed to create jn the ministers
left no reason to doubt that the Premier went back to Victoria prouder than
ever to be premier of a  province  with
such  great  possibilities,   and  this,  it
must he admitted, is a good thing for
a public man to feel.    That he and his
colleague made a  most favorable impression  goes without saying, and another most important feature that was
most obvious and pleasing to the electors wa;-  (lie  evidence of  wholesome
accord between   the ministers and the
representative.      That   Mr.   Shatford
has   been   no servile follower has been
well known,  and it was most pleasing
to hole I hat instead of effecting adversely l.i.; .-���jar.ding with the government
it lias, ifanyfching, heightened their regard   for  him   and  commanded  their
respect.      Altogether   the    people   of
Siniilkanteen now know  Premier  McBride better: they like him better and
for any conservative, who. can  find  in
Sir William a subject for panegyrics,
deserves to be called down.     The man
who will, when  in  opposition, introduce a bill to make it impossible to appoint a member of parliament to any
position of emolument under the Government within   two- years after the
time that he occupied a   seat  in   the
House, and.then when his.party  gets
in power and   he  himself  is made a
minister of the Crown, not only  fails
to re-introduce such bill but both lends
countenance   to   his    colleagues   and
government has j makes appointments in his department
that are in flat violation of the principle of the bill, finally capping the ���climax in lii's own case by being sworn in
as Chief Justice of the Court of  Exchequer within   two  weeks after   he
had resigned his seat in the cabinet, is
certainly unworthy  of  canonization.
But   the   Times   evidently   seems   to
think that he is ;   it imagines, besides,
that the canonization   would, be profaned by allowing  wicked   Tories   to
participate therin.    It is true that Mr.
Mulock reduced deficits in the Post Office department and  inaugurated  the
two cent rate.      What if he did ?     In
order to do so  how many mail routes
were cut off   to   the great in convenience and loss of the people?   Also how
many increases were made in the rate
in other classes of postage?   Another
of his economical plans was to cut the
wages   of the   most poorly   paid employees of the department and at the.
same time try to curry favor with labor by creating a new office for his political friend,  McKen/Je King.-    After
all, this post office reputation is very
much of a bubble,���a hoenssing of the
electorate, by a little cute departmental legerdemain  in taking out of one
pocket to put in another: and slight of
hand work was never formerly a. qualification for canonization.

Miss Afegraw returned from Vancouver on Tuesday's stage.  Waltov K. Adams, of Victoria, was  in town on Monday.  Miss .Elliott, of Vancouver, arrived  on Thursday's stage to take care of  Mrs. McEwrii as nurse and companion,  Robt. K. Gordon, of- Grand Forks,  arrived in town on Tuesday to take a  position with the Hedley Lumber Co.,  as book-keeper-,  H. B. Mackenzie, inspector- of the  Bank of B.N.A., came in on Tuesday's  stage on an official visit to the Hedley  branch.  Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Forbes expect  to leave in about a' week'for- Mr.  Forbes' home in Nova Scotia where  they will spend the winter.  E. A. C. Studd, C.E. Oliver and H,  Loir expect to cat their Christmas dinners in ."merrie England," and' be  back -with the robins in the spring.  R. Scott wlro has been working with  W. A. McLean on his irrigation contract at Penticton, returned to Hedley  this week.  The man McGary, who succeeded T.  Henderson as engineer at the powerhouse, quit the job on Saturday last  and went out on Monday morning.  His landlord has been 'making some  inquiries after his-welfare.  A-hunting party consisting of H. H.  Messenger, Harry Swan, D. G. Hackney, Paul Brodhagen and Nick Pick-  ard are scouring the wilds about Ash-  nola, Creek- in search of big game, and  concocting a generous supply of big  yarns.  The Daly Redaction Company are  prepared to let a $12,000 or $15,000  ���������wood contract, or the same amount  divided up into .a number of' smaller  contracts. There might be as much  money in this as in any other opportunity that might offer for making a  little stake, and it would pay to investigate it.  Rev, E. P. Flewelling underwent ah  operation in the hospital in Vancouver-.  The treatment was considered quite  successful and, he is making a satisfactory recovery. The exact date of  his return has not yet been set, but  '���������will in all 'probability be within two  weeks' time, when his friends in Hedley  will  be most pleased, to see him  back again.  A timely suggestion  was made the  "other clay with reference' to .Tacky  Tyrell, better known as "hobo Jack."  The suggestion was that a general amnesty be granted Jacky. for all his little commercial irregularities, and that  he be invited back, with tire understanding that immediately on his arrival he is to limber up and turn his  two battries of fives again on General  Fred McL:\ine of the C. P. R.  A petition for the installation  of a  telephone in the C. P. R, office at P\en-  ticton was circulated among subscribers in Hedley and the public generally  and was largely, signed.    When at it  they should put instruments in Hotel  Pentictorr and the Southern Okanagan  Laud Company's office.    A phone in  the C. P. R. office would save a lot of  correspondence both for business men  in Hedley and for the C. P. R. agent.  .Tas. Reith,  of   the   Central   Hotel,  Keremeos, was in town on Friday, accompanied by Mr.   Coleman, of  Trail.  Mi-.   Reith   announces the arrival  of  the advance guard of the construction  force on the portion of the V. V. & E.  between Keremeos and   the   interna-  tional boundary.    A large steam shovel is being brought in to be used in a  deep cutting down  near the river at  Keremeos.     Everything from now on  will be. hustle in  the valley,  and tho  hotels,  liverymen and   merchants   at  Keremeos are preparing themselves to  supply the wants of the railway men.  J. C. Haas, M. E.,  of Spokane, is in  town this week.    Yesterday he  went  up on the mountain to make an examination of some claims for outside parties.     Mr. Haas was probably the first  mining engineer to  cast in his lot permanently Avith the Boundary, when as  a. gra-dua-te of Houghton he opened the  first assay office   in Midway in '9.1 or  '95.    Mr. Haas was always noted for  being conservative, in his  estimates of  mining property, and although he has  put through importantdealsin mining  property he was never  to   he   classed  among the boomers.   It is to he regretted that the. lateness of the season will  prevent him from  getting around  to'  obtain   a  more general idea of mining  properties in the district.  '' Surface men on the Daly Reduction  Co.'s works have been given a nine-  hoar day, from 7 to 5, with 8 hours on  Saturday. *  ; Rifle match will be held on 20th,  when "the cup will be up again for  competition. All members of the association are eligible to shoot.  The little impromptu dance in Eraser's hall on* Friday   night   was   pro-  .hoimced a success by those   present.  Messrs.  Gibbons and Rolls furnished  the music.  Dr. Mathison. left yesterday morning for Keremeos, where he has a few  days' work in hand before leaving the  Similkameeu for his home in Greenwood. It will be lonesome for a while  without him, for Hedleyites were Imj-  ginning to regard him as one of themselves.  , Mr.' W. T. Atherton who has lieen  acting in the capacity of auditor at  the Hotel Similkaineen during the  past year, has now concluded to look  after his ranch at Atherton corner.  Mr. Atherton thinks Hedley an vicinity good enough for him and has no intention of leaving the district.  The wagon road to connect the town  with camps on Nickel Plate Mountain,  received considerable of a lift with the  visit of the Ministers. The question  was put forcibly by the representative  both in his speech at the public meeting and in private conversation with  the' ministers, and the views of other  residents showed that the people were  dead in earnest, about it.  Chief Engineer J. H. Kennedy, of  the V. V. & E., came in on Saturday  from Midway and on Sunday went on  to Princeton. After newspaper reports of the Midway conflicts Hedleyites were prepared to see Mr. Kennedy  with bandaged limbs, a pair of black  eyes and bearing other evidence of a  ruction ; but his unruffled exterior was  evidence that he litis no misgivings as  to the impregnable position which his  company holds, and any petty obstruction which the C. P. R. may offer can  be brushed aside in a few days' time.  Frank Bailey uncovered a promising  showing up Twenty-mile and staked a  number of claims, calling it Bailey's  camp.

John Dignan had an accident with  the second big boiler which he was  hauling for- the Daly Reduction Co.

It is expected that the boiler-  will reach here about the end of this  week.  Mayor- Naden of Greenwood and J".  C. Haas, M.. B., both old timers in the  Boundary were in town this week.  Mr. Naden turned his attention to the  Sirnilkameen about 5 or 6 years ago,  and obtained interests in various parts  of the district, .which brings him over  occasionally to see us. Mr. Naden did  yeoman service for the Great Northern in negotiating right of way for  them between Molson and Midway,  He effected speedy settlement at rates  considerably less than any other could  have secured, for the people all knew  him and had confidence in him where  they would take no stock.in strangers.  He saved the company thousands of  dollars and in some cases steered them  away from expropriation proceedings  in which they would have been utterly routed.  On Friday last the Commercial hotel  narrowly escaped being burned down.  Fire started in one. of the rooms upstairs, where it is thought that a lodger had left a lighted cigar in an overcoat pocket.   The fire at all events had  smouldered therefor some-time, as the  garment   had    been pretty well   demolished, and the fire   when   noticed  was fast spreading  to other parts  of  the room.    It is only a; short time ago  that a  drunk   who   evidently didn't  know what he  was doing,  kindled a  fire pn  the floor*  to    warm   himself.  This also was  fortunately noticed  in  time and the fire put out before it had  obtained sufficient headway to warm  up the drunk,   but not before  it had  left a deeply charred spot on the floor, j  Whether he was  .sufficiently warmed  up afterwards with external  applications of boot, the story does not stati  but he should have   been.  hi  J  <  (0  J  0  I  PURVEYORS  OF  ALL KINDS  OF  Fresh Meats  PATRONIZE YOUR  HOME  MILLS  *^*i*BMa*i^M*������MM*M*������*iW,MWiWWM*M,^,^,WM������M���������H*���������-II ���������III I       I     lllli lllt^l IfH MM**^TM^���������^���������^���������m  Ask your grocer for  Moffet's  . and help us to, help  British Columbia  by employing more men in our mills.

James McColl Killed in the  Glory Hole  by Being Hit With a Log-.'  The immunity from serious accident  which as a rule has attended  mining  operations at the   Nickel   Plate  was  hroken on Friday Inst, when James A.  McColl,  aged about 10,  was killed in  the glory hole.    Deceased was born in  Antigonish, N. S.,  and had only gone  to work at the. mine that morning,  having come in by way'of' Spence's  Bridge,  and came  to  Hedley broke.  No men had been at work in the Nickel  Plate glory hole for some time, the  work of quarrying for several months  being confined to that on  the  Sunny-  side.   McColl and  two others., were at  work stripping on -the hill-side at the  south end of the' Nickel Plate glory-  hole andSvheeling the gossan, outcrop  to the rim of the glory hole and dumping it on a chute which led down to  the throttle or chute connecting the  bottom of the  glory   hole  with the  stopes below. ��������� Occasionally this dirt  would stick in the chute and  McColl  went down to loosed) it.   On the hillside above they were taking out logs, ,  and on this particular day the logs  were covered with ice, it having rained  and frozen t.he night before.    One of  these logs slipped from the control of  Chas. O'Brien, and  breaking in  two,  .one half shot into the"glory hole where  it caught deceased, killing him Almost  instantly.      Div Whillans "was summoned immediately  but it was impossible to do anything. The circumstance  was  reported  by Dr. Whillans to the  coroner, Dr. White of Penticton. who  instructed Dr. McEwen to make inquiries under oath as  to  the circumstances.     This was done by Dr. Mc-  Eweu, who went to the mine and took  the . sworn testimony of G. .P. Jones  and Chas.  O'Brien.    Permission was.  given  for burial of, the  body  which  took place on Sunday, Rev. L. Thomas  officiating.  - '���������<         ������������������- " ���������  -    OBITUARY.  On Thursday last at5p.ni. the death  occurred of Earl/Prather, son of Mr.  and Mrs. J. T. Prather of Spring Sta--  tion. After an attack of typhoid which  lasted but three weeks, this promising  young man was cut off at the. threshold  of manhood and at the opening of what  promised to be a career of industry and  energy aird of great usefulness to the  community in which he lived.  Earl   was  born   near  Spokane,   in,  } Washington, but had spent the greater  part of his life in B. C    He was hard-  i working and of a bright, cheerful dis-  I position.   In him and his twin sister,  Pearl, were centred the hope and pride  of the homestead,  and the blow is one  from which the family cannot speedily  recover-.   We can  but  extend to the  i afflicted the expressions of our deep  | sympathy in their sorrow and  trust  that the Great Healer will soon  assuage their grief.  The funeral procession left-the homestead at 1 p.m. on Friday, proceeding  to Fairview cemetery where the remains were interred. The Rev. C.  Whiting officiated at the funeral, and  most of the residents of the district-  were present at the cemetery. In spite  of the lateness of the season many  floral emblems had been sent by the  people of Fairview.
