Last week there was a, general movement of the lower Similkameen Indians \ip the valley, their objective  point .being old man Steve's place,  above Bromley's, where a potiach was  to be held. These extravagant festivals have been getting fewer of late  years, and should now be altogether a  thing; of the past.    ,  A false, sense of honor among the  Indians aswell as a. tradition handed  down from generation to generation  has kept the tustom alive and kept the  individual Indian with his nose to the  grind-stone; for whenever they got a  little ahead iu the possession of this  world's goods they were expected to  hold a: potiach and- give away to allcomers, gifts ad libitum, until they had  nothing left. : True they could count  on ringing in as beneficiaries-on the  next occasion of the kind given by  some other Indian.  So long as the articles donated were  confined to blankets, shawls and other  household necessaries, less harm was  done; but too, often a great deal of it  went in worthless tinsel and,gew gaw,  that would benefit no one but the  manufacturer or vendor in such affairs.  Absurd as the custom must appear, it  is after all only on the same footing as  the treating system in vogue among  the whites, and perhaps may die  as  hard. ,  Often the "white trash" have shown  a disposition to flock around such  f unctions," attracted like flies around a  pot of ointment for the sake of the  loaves and fishes, while others are  drawn out of curiosity alone. In any  case it is a dangerous^ practice, for in  doing so they render themselves liable  to imprisonment.  The Indian Act deals with the offence thus in section 114, sub-sections  1 and 2:  "Every Indian or person who engages in or assists in celebrating the  Indian festival known as the 'Potiach'  or the Indian dauce known as the  * Tamanawas,' is guilty of a misdemeanor, and liable to imprisonment  for a term not exceeding six months  and not less than two months :  "Every Indian or person who encourages, either directly or indirectly,  an Indian to get up such a festival or  dance, or to celebrate the same, or who  assists in the celebration of the same,  is guilty of a like offence, and shall  be liable to the same punishment.  ���������17 V., c.27, s. 3."  Shovel Work Nearing; Completion to the  South���������Busy Camps at Stirling and   ,  Smith Creeks���������Track-laying  Rumors Persistent  Construction camps are dotted along  the Similkameen river pretty much all  the way to Bromley's, and already  considerable grade'is shaping-lip.  Madden's camp on Webster's ranch,  near Sterling creek, has a busy appearance,, and J. W. Stewart's No. 3 camp  on Smith creek is a little town under  canvas, in charge of fi J. McDougall.  W. A. Maclean is getting his outfit"ori  the ground and putting in his camp  ready to begin operations in earnest.  AH these camps, are on the other-  side of .the river, arid the booze is on  this side. This feature of the situation  may he conducive to sobriety and explains why the contractors are not in  a hurry to construct either foot bridges or any other kind of bridges across  the river at the present time.  To the south everything is finished'  now except about a fortnight's work  for the steam shovel near Bradshaw's.  The portion of grade across the river  beyond Cold creek w(hich was washed  out during high water is being repaired and put in shape for the. track.  So far as grading is concerned there  was nothing to preyent.the track-layer  being at work six' weeks ago. The report that track-laying will commence  next week lacks official, confirmation,  although there is local, evidence that  preparations for it have been made.  THE C. P. R. SURVEY.

OffiGe, Greenhouses and Seedhouse:  3010 Westminster Road,  VANCOUVER,   -   B. 6.  (Chc.saw News.)  Wednesday morning while enroute  to the Gaillac slaughter house southwest of town, Chas. Kelley and James  Mclntyre met Jack AVilliams, the  Oroville gardener, on the Mary Ann  Creek grade, the latter bound for  Chesaw with a load of truck. In the  altercation which followed concerning  right of way gun work was introduced.  Upon returning to town Kelley made  complaint against Williams on a  charge of "displaying a dangerous  weapon in a threatening mariner."  Judges Grove contended that, as he  had the load, Williams was entitled  to the right of way, and dismissed  the case.  The Penticton Press makes serious  charges against the Vernon police,  that must either result in a house-,  cleaning in police circles in that town  or an accounting by the Press for the  publicity given these chai-ges on the  testimony of a pair of self-confessed  sharpers. If, however, the story told  to the Press by these sharpers is borne  out by corroborative evidence, the.  Vernon police force should be ignom-  iniously dismissed the service, and the  police commissioners owe the townspeople an apology for ever having had  such men in their employ. The charges  set forth as fact that professional  swindlers fleeced the people at the  Vernon fair out of between $3,000 and  $5,000; that the sharpers paid the  police certain sums to be allowed to  continue, and that chief constable Edwards gave one of the sharpers a letter  of introduction to the police at Kel-  owna, commending said sharper to  the favorable consideration of the  Kelowna cops. Strange to say, the  same weeks issue of the Vernon Okanagan is handing out bouquets to the  Vernon police.  (Ponticton Press.) ~  R. A. Henderson, C. E., and party  left Wednesday morning for Keremeos  where they will take train tp their  homes at Grand Forks, having completed the location of the old railway  survey line between Midway and  Penticton. :' '       'i  For the past three weeks the party,  comprising abouta dozen men, have  been rushing work on the portion of  the line between Carmi and Penticton,  and while some of the men have been  in town for.supplies every day or two,  the most profound secrecy has been  observed as to its operations. However, a number of suggestions have  leaked out, among them being that it  is no������ improbable that- the party, in  increased .numbers, may be back within a month,. and that next summer  Penticton will be the base of extensive  operations. Chief Henderson intimated to one person in conversation that  Penticton would yet be a'large city!  Before the party left they made arrangements for the .storing' of their  outfit, and also made enquiries us to  the cost of supplies.  It is understood that-i one per cent,  grade has been secured, the most cliffi  cult portion of the\ route  being the  descent from the divide near the head  of-Ellis creek to Ponticton.   In order  to make the grade, a distance of seventy miles traversed between Carmi  and Penticton, which are situated only  twerity-orie miles  apart.    Descending  Ellis creek  to near Campbell & Kay's  sawmill, the survey line turns up Penticton creek, passing around the mountain and emerging through the. draw  at' C. F. Bandolph's place.     It then  runs south along the west side of the  mountain and crosses Penticton creek  near H. L. DeBeck's farm, from which  point it gradually descends to the flat.  The party under H. E. C. Cary which  has been working all summer between  Nicola and Okanagan   lake   are now  reported pushing  their survey down  Trout creek, and may be expected to  arrive in Penticton any day. The next  move will be watched with interest.  VICE-ROYALTY VISITS  THE SIMILKAMEEN.  Earl Grey and His Staff Arrive Tuesday  Morning, and Are Now Visiting  Points of Interest.  Some were disposed Lobe incredulous when it was reported on Tuesday  last that His Excellency Earl Grey,  governor-general of Canada, had arrived by Great Northern during the  night, accompanied by his staff and  guests, amongwhom was Lord Stanhope.  His Excellency and Lord Stanhope,  accompanied by a small party of  mounted police, started on Tuesday  forenoon to ride from Keremeos to  Penticton, where the steamer Okanagan had been char tei-ed for a trip  around the lake, and was under orders  to get back to Penticton by -1 o'clock  to meet them.  When.it was known that the viceregal party were in the district invitations poured in from all, points, for a  visit from His Excellency. Hedley  ���������has,perhaps more to offer in the way  of special attraction than any of them,  and while the slowness of the railway-  in getting, track laid, to enable the.  special to reach Hedley, it is hoped  that His Excellency will be able, to  spare time to ride up the valley and  see Canada's premier gold-mine and  ride on the highest railway in Canada.  Earl Grey has '"proven hiiu*-p]f one of  the best -governors-general Canada-  ever had. He has the happy knack of  always doing and saying the right-  thing at the right time; he is not  afraid to take the initiative, but his  initiative is always commendable and  correct. No pains" have been spared  by him to make himself thoroughly  acquainted with Canada, its needs, its  hopes and its aspirations.   . .������.   DESPERATE ENCOUNTER.  J. A.

Hill celebrated his 70th birthday a few days ago, and the proceedings meant to commemorate the event  were unique. The engine used on the  excursion train was an old engine  known as the Crookes, which was the  first engine used on the system, and  the guests were employees who had  been continuously in his employ for  over 28 years.

Attention Given  TO THE TltAVKl.tilNG Pl'Hl.IC   PvATKS   MoDKI'ATE   VANDER J. ROSE  Proprietor  (Keremeos Trumpet.)  The local newspaper is the recognized agency for the   voicing  of all  complaints, ills, grievances and remonstrances,  of whatever nature,  among  the residents of the community which  it seeks to serve.  It must do this without fear or favor, regardless of whose  ox is gored,  or whose corns it may  tread upon in its efforts to secure  the  greatest good to the greatest number.  It seldom receives any assistance, or  encouragement   and   always   has   to  stand the full brunt of the back kicks  that are sure to come.    The. only compensation  is  the satisfaction that follows when a vigorous  and continued  agitation is successful in  accomplishing the reform aimed at.  A. Gillies,  who  accompanied   Constable Ashton to Nicola for the arrest  of Green and Rice, suspected of being  the murderers   of Thomet,  returned  last week, while Ashton took the prisoners around by Spence's Bridge and  Revclstoke.   Gillies had no difficulty  in   indentifying   them   as   being   the  parties who had  been   placer  mining  on Boundary Creek, but he had more  doubt than before of them being the  right men.   There was no evidence-of  either man having been .vounded, and  neither were   they   armed with   the  Luger and  Mauser pistols,   although  one of the men carried  a. small pistol  which he. attempted to draw when arrested, which in   itself   looks   a little  bit suspicious.   Tf   they can   account  satisfactorily   lor   their   whereabouts  when the murder was committed and  for several days thereafter,  they  will  likely be given their   freedom.  The eve of the  big game hunting  season brings the  ever welcome Fall  Hunting Number of "Rod and Gun  and Motor Sports in Canada," published by W. J. Taylor, Woodstock, Ont.  This year the budget of stories is more  varied than ever and include, not only  moose and deer hunting, but also fox,  bear,  wolves etc.    A paper by John  Arthur Hope on   "The Red Deer or  Wapiti and the Virginian or Common  Red Deer of North America," will be  read with interest by every sportsman,  whether he is a big game hunter or a  nature student simply.      Fishermen,  canoeists, campers, mountaineers arid  others will find that they are not forgotten, for although hunting has the  pride of place, which is quite in keeping with  the period of the year, the  many sportsmen who are not big game  hunters,  may depend upon a variety  which  takes   note   of   the   fact   that  sportsmen  have many  tastes and are  not all absorbed in one pursuit. Those,  however, who are not big game hunters,   may enjoy the   many   excellent  stories dealing with   this   fine   sport  which appear in this capital number.  James A. Macdonell, head of the  engineering firm of Macdonell, Gzow-  ski & Company, is the hero of the  hour in the Rocky Mountain regions  to-day. Like David of old he fought  single-handed with a bear, and though  he did not kill the bear he saved the  life of a child..  Mr. Macdonell was standing on  the platform at Field. On the C. P. R.  hotel grounds near by, a black bear  was moving out to the end of its tether  and then towards the dug-out in  which it lived. Near the bear the S  year old son of Wm. Lynes, C, P. R.  conductor, was playing. Suddenly the  bear pounced on the lad and ran back  with him into his den.  Mr. Macdonell ran to the opening ^  and. grasping the bear's chain, began  to pull the bear out. He is a hig���������  athletic man, and in spite of the  bear's resistance, drew it steadily tu-  waids the opening. Finally the. enraged beast shot through the hole, and  attacked Mr. Macdonell. The. latter  in bis turn, fought for possession of  his child, and having secured it, got  clear of the bear.  The animal was subsequently shot*  but Mr. Macdonell will carry the mark  of the beast's claws on his arms and  hands for many a day.   "-������������������ m^::  AN UNENVIABLE RECORD.  MORE  SKY SIGNS.  There was a repetition,   with  variations, on Tuesday night, of the peculiar  phenomenon which occurred on Aug.  18th,  and was noted in  our issue of  Aug. 27th.    This  time it had a little  more  the appearance of   the   aurora  borealis,  but the  borealis part of the  name would have to be cut ont, for the  display originated again in the southeastern  horizon.     This   time   it  was  longer in forming the band across-the  sky, and neither was the band so well-  defined  nor so complete.      That the  phenomenon was electrical in its origin  there can be little doubt.    Last time, it  was followed by some rain   a few days  after, and it is to be hoped thai it may  again portend a more liberal supply of  moisture.  About midnight there was a  brillant electrical display in the north.  (Vernon News.)  The murderers of Thomet at Midway  are still at large, despite  various, reports that they had been arrested in  different parts of this  province  and  Washington.    So are Bill  Miliar and  his associates  who escaped from the  New Westminster penitentiary.    So is  the unknown assassin who killed poor  old Zimmerman at Penticton in January, 1907.     So  is the Indian murderer  in Chilcotin. So is the slayer of a child  at North Vancouver last year.    So is  the  Keremeos  iriurderer who escaped  from the constable near Salmon   Arm  while being taken to jail.    These are a  few cases that happened to occur to  us when   thinking   of   the   crime   at  Midway,  and   there   are   probably   a  good many'more that might  be  recalled with a little trouble. The record  is  not  one in   which   our   provincial  police, force can very  well   take much  pride, or satisfaction.    There seems to  be room for considerable improvement  in this branch of tin- public service. ,���������,..,,  THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE.^jOCgJOBER 1, 1908.,,^,    ^r;,.  ������4������i-  ir^i  ?i89iv lie wtts pr^jp*iiied:,fe'i'ecq^-  vjtiize their' wishes * &nd-,Was tioxv  ^illing^ f oA re^ua'ilile   tl^ 1893  and^--;:-1''   ';.-J   '*���������  Similkameen Advertiser. . n ,  T      ,     ������������������     ,      , ' ,   ���������   , ., r...��������� i plank\ to    destroy   protection.

OPPORTUNIST  Two important pronouncements were made by R. L. Borden in his ��������� Montreal speech.  One was that the essence and  spirit of a protective policy  would be adhered to if the Conservative party comes to power,  and the other is that inasmuch  as the electors had four years  ago declared in favor of the  building of the Grand Trunk  Pacific, the Conservatives if  placed in power at Ottawa  would carry out in its entirety  the bargain made with the G.  T. P. just as if they had been  the authors of the measure  themselves. There could not  posssibly be anything- like repudiation once parliament and  the people had indorsed the  undertaking.  These are  manly  statesmanlike utterances, in  marked contradistinction   to    that   of   Sir  Wilfrid Laurier  who   in   1893  attended the noted Liberal convention at Ottawa which formulated a platform, the principal  plank of which was  uncompromising hostility to a protective  tariff and  who  in  1896, or the  very first opportunity he had of  going to the country after that  convention,   dared    not   say    a  word in public in favor of the  plank he   had   supported,   but  passed the word around on the  quiet among his  supporters  to  tell the  manufacturers that if  he   (Sir Wilfrid   Laurier) were  placed   in   power,    the    tariff  would not be interfered with,  And    when    elected  he   dared  not carry out the plank he was  publicly  pledged   to   maintain,  but in some instances raised the  duty    instead    of   wiping   out  every vestige  of protection  as  he had said he would do  at the  convention of 1893.  Had Sir Wilfrid been a statesman and been possessed of the  honest courage of his convictions he would surely have told  the electors plainly from the  hustings in 1890 just where he  stood on the trade question. He  could even have said that inasmuch as parliament and the  people of Canada had first declared for a protective tariff in  1878 and had repeated that determination  in 1882,   1887,  and  was not a- statesman but ah opportunist. He saw an opportunity to obtain power by the  abandonment of what he had  formerly been pleased to call  principle. The public: mind was  temporarily inflamed with a religious question concerning  Manitoba schools, when the  goA-ernnlent of the day found  itself in the unfortunate predicament of having to either fly  in the face of public sentiment  inflamed by religious prejudice,  or disobey the mandate of the  highest court in the realm.  Like loyal subjects they, chose  the former. It was Laurier's  opportunity and he rode the  Orange horse into power only  to turn around and throw down  his dupes on the autonomy bill,  which saddled separate schools  on the two new provinces of  Alberta and Saskatchewan.  li&ff .     1/  tie.tttl you'rer^but oj������|  TherVsyheaps  of time-yet:.

YQPNTG  PAY-ROLL TOWN  Has  Been  for Ten YeaOfs  and  Continue To Be the Industrial  Geritfe of Similkameen.  SOME   PLAIN   REASONS  WHY  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  In free trade England one  person out of every 38 of the  population is a pauper. This  fact was established by'" "the  government returns- on pauperism up to the end of 1907, and  the figures as compared with  those of the preceding year  showed an increase of 22 per  cent. And still there are those  in the British House of Commons, both leaders of the government and' many on opposition benches who will cling to  the free trade fetich, ignoring  the plain evidence before. them  that mechanics in Germany and  the United States are doing the  work that- should be done by  their own artisans, now in the  ranks of the unemployed in  England, receiving assistance  at the hands of charitable institutions. If Cobden were only  alive in England to-day he  would have the tariff walls put  up more quickly than they  were taken down.  Reports from Kootenay indicate that a little after lamplight on the evening of Oct. 26,  Smith Curtis will say  Goodeve-  ning and go home.  METEOROLOGICAL.

Billy Bowser is winning golden opinions from the people of  Ontario by his masterly debating powers, and is at the same  time doing a fine chore for British Columbia by not neglecting  to enlighten the easterners on  the subject of Better Terms and  "a,white British Columbia." His  addresses before a 4000 audience in London and a full-  packed Massey Hall, Toronto,  were both rattling speeches.  The Fall Term will begin on  Wednesday, Sept. 23, 1908  Duncan Ross' paper, the  Greenwood Times, is indulging  in some il-timed mirth because  Attorney-general W. J. Bowser  is stumping in Ontario at present, and it attributes the fact  to Bowser's disinclination to  meet Duncan Ross.

When cattle ranching, which etn}  ployed but a few hands, 'was the only  paying .industry in the Similkameen,  and the worked out placer-diggings  had heen abandoned, it was a very  sparse population which this district  could maintain, because of the lack of  transportation arid the isolated position of the valley. It is true it"hsuf a  perfect climate und fertile lands upon  which grew the native grasses that  fattened the herds which were driven  out over the mountain passes to market ; but agriculture on a paying basis  under such conditions was ��������� wholly but  of the question, and for decade after  decade little was grown, whether in  grain,vegetables or'fruits*-; beyond 'what  was required to supply the local wants  of those engaged in cattle, ranching.  Mineral Wealth Proved Salvation.  Now we have a railway grade u t our  door, and the mineral wealth in the  hills surrounding Hedley was the one  thing which above all others demonstrated to railway capital that there  was here something for which to build,  for had it not been for the work done  on the Nickel Plate and the inducements held out to railway companies,  they would never have thought of  building in here. Indeed the president  of the Great Northern has said so.  What Was There To Show ?  As early as 1S77 the late Dr. Dawson,  in his general report on the geology of  the Similkaineen, referred in most favorable terms to the geological conditions prevailing here, long before any  prospector had seta stake. Subsequent  events demonstrate the correctness of  his views, and closer geological study  than Dr. Dawson was able to give in  his hurried trip through new territory  has since shown that in ages gone by  nature prepared here the ideal conditions for deposition of mineral wealth,  and also, did some fine topographical  engineering to afford means for winning  the ores.  Conditions spoken of by Dr. Dawson  were readily recognized ten years ago  by M. K. Rodgers when he arrived on  the ground and bonded the Nickel  Plate group. This marked the beginning of a new era for the Similkaineen,  and with the work of development and  the subsequent extraction of values,  Hedley became the main centre of population for the. district���������the pay office,  the entrepot, the town of the full  dinner-pail.  Extent and Value of Hedley's Mineral  Field.  While preliminary reports published  in government blue books by Mr.  Charles Caniscll, who was in charge of  the party from the geological survey  which spent two years studying the  geology and ore deposits of the camp,  has made some reference to the extent  of mineralization, it is well known  that Mr. Camsell has modified his first  impressions on that subject and concurs in the view of a much wider area  of pay values than that which his  work at first covered.  The area can be roundly stated to  extend at least eight miles north of  Hedley, 7 miles south, 7 orS miles east  and 5 miles west.  Mr. Camsell refers to the camp as  the greatest producer of gold alone of  any camp in British Columbia.  Mr. M. K. Rodgers has spent many  years and travelled many thousand  miles up and down the continent looking for mines, examining and sampling  everything offered him, and has frankly volunteered the statement that "nowhere between Alaska and Mexico  does he know of any fifteen miles of  undeveloped territory that will sample  equal to the. fifteen miles of which the.  Nickel Plate; is the centre." This is  indeed a. very strong testimonial from  Mr. Rodgers and carries a wealth of  meaning to those who have money to  invest, whether in mineral lands, real  estate or business ventures. Assuming  this to be  true  (and of its truth there  is no reasonable ground for doubt) the  possibilities for Hedley are enormous;  for with so wide extent of pay ground,  with vast ore bodies, the values of  which range from low grade to medium and (in some few spots where special agencies < for concentration of"  values have been at work), to high  grade, there is only one outcome to be  expected/arid that is the existence here  at'an early date of a busy, prosperous  mining town of several thousand inhabitants. ;  What Hedley Has To Offer.  Not. always has nature been so kind  as to locate her treasure vaults where  the conditions for living .'are' so pleasant. Often rich mining regions have  brought together, -hfrgev population  where the climate is unbearable and  natural conditions for sanitation such  that the town has scarcely started uri-:  til the inevitable harvest of a perilous  death rate is heirig reaped. But in  Hedley it is a well-known fact that  even in the absence of the commonest..'  precautions in the way of sanitation  there is no town in the district has so  clean a health bill; for while every  other place shows the existence more  or less of typhoid, Hedley has been  absolutely free from this scourge. The  reason for this is obvious. The town'  is built on an immense gravel bed believed by geologists to be of many  hundred feet in thickness with a. large  swift-flowing river at her door and a  steady easy slope of the townsite towards the river of about 5%, making  the future question of sewage disposal  the simplest possible, by means of sewer and septic tanks. In the water supply there are no death-breeding wells  but a system of waterworks providing  pure running water from mountain  streams.  % While these conditions mean so  much for the healtb of the town they  also may mean nmch for its industrial  advancement. The task of winning  values from the immense ore deposits  in the vicinity precludes the idea of  depending upon the present tramway  system of ore haulage, and the near  future will in all probability see the  inauguration of a comprehensive plan  for tunnelling the mountain, and thus  permit of handling huge quantities of  ore at minimum cost. To this end the  Similkameen river will be harnessed so  as to provide ample power for operating the various properties in the camp,  and when this is accomplished, Hedley  will have come to her own.  What Has Already Been Accomplished.  When Mr. Rodgers took hold of the  Nickel Plate, less than ten years ago,  not $50 worth of work had been done  on it. There were no roads for the  transportation of supplies to the mine,  and these had to be built. The colossal  task of overcoming these difficulties  had to be tackled by the one concern  which had undertaken to make this a  producing camp,   but the sequel has  shown that the mineral wealth exist-  ant here, justified it all. When people  who are disposed to be exacting ask  why the opening up of the camp has  not been more general, and why other  properties are not developed to the  same extent as the Nickel Plate, they  should also in fairness admit that it is  a wonder that.so much has been done  in the fa.ee of such disadvantage as the  remoteness from railways.  Two Millions in Bullion Taken Out.  AVhile no definite figures have been  given out as to the total bullion pro- i  auction from this camp, sufficient  data, directly and indirectly, is obtainable to warrant the statement that by  the end of 1908 two million dollars in  gold will be the output, and there is  greater probability of the real amount  exceeding that sum than in falling  short of it. What the. district has been  living on may be learned from the fact  that the outlay in wages and other  things necessary to produce this a-  niount- of bullion has provided sustenance not only to the people of Hedley  but the whole valley.  This being the record of one mine, a  faint idea, is obtained of what the town  is to be when there are half a dozen  or   more. 1TIE--HEDLEY--GAZETTE, ^OCTOBER  1,-1908,  |         THE        *  Great Northern |  Hotel |  Princeton   I  Is noted over the  entire district for excellence of both table,  :   :   :   :      and bar.      :   :   :   :  X All the wants of the travelling  S        public   carefully  attended   to.  i.A>  Town and District.

It  is Mr. Bradshaw's intention to dispose  of the hotel and devote his entire attention to the ranch, and a year or  two hence the mouth of Fifteen-mile  will be a pretty spot.  Frost has held off very well this  year, but on Thursday night last it  was in evidence all through the Similkameen valley, the more tender plants  and flowers being cut. In Hedley  gardens, asters, sweet peas and many  others showed no ill-effects, but the  more succulent plants suffered.  Geo. Gilbert was coming back this  month from the old country, but- ocean  travel is so congested at present that  he will be unable to get a berth for six  weeks. On his return it is fully expected that there will be something  doing on the Florence group. This  very promising property will before  long be doing its share to swell Hed-  ley's mineral output.  An Italian named Joe Rossi has been  getting into sundry scrapes. Too much  booze, was the main cause of the trouble, for that came first and the other  ills followed in succession. Besides a-  charge of obtaining money under false  pretences, his fellow countrymen are  after him for a little matter of $300.00,  which they intend him to liquidate as  soon as they can catch him.  It appears that the question of how  to get into the Similkameen is variously stated in railway offices on the  Coast. A few days ago an inquirer  was told in ������he C. P. R. office in Victoria that the Great Northern had no  passenger trains running into the Similkameen���������only work trains ; and that  Hedley was only two hours from Penticton, and Princeton could be reached  by mid-day leaving Penticton in the  morning.  There was a runaway in town on  Sunday afternoon. A rig hired by  some Italians who had let the horses'  get away from 'them did some lively  running along Haynes St., turning  the corner at the Grand Union on  two wheels instead of four and hitting  a lively gait up Scott Avenue, bound  for the Palace livery stable. The Italians appear to be a trifle unfortunate  in their pleasure. A while ago some  of them smashed lip an outfit which  they had from Revely's stable, and  had to pay .$S0.00 towards liquidating  bill for repairs.  "E-ifl-Grey is no summer-"cdon.

'  J. McCreath, of Greenwood, spent  Sunday in town. He didn't bring the  automobile this trip as expected.  Possibly it takes a little while to. become sufficiently familiar with the  machine.  Robt. Stevenson left on Saturday  morning's stage for Princeton, intending to stop over at Bromley's a few  days in response to an invitation from  Mr. and Mrs. Broinley.' He was making a satisfactory recovery, and while  still sore from some of his injuries,  was getting along very well.  Geo. Y. Bowerman returned on Friday last to move his family to his land  on Osoyoos Lake. On Tuesday morning he left by Innis' stage, accompanied by his wife and family and Mrs.  Boeing. Mr. and Mrs. Bowerman  will be missed by their many friends,  but they still have their property here  and when Hedley becomes Butte No. 2  they may be back.  Rumors have been plentiful for the  past week that track-laying is to begin the first week in October. Some  of the reasons given for the statement  certainly do not lack in the matter of  being definite. But the manufacturer-  of ruhims hereabout never could be  accused of deficiency in this respect.  Only a few days are necessary to test  the correctness of this last.  The witnesses in the Pulford case  have been waiting for some time for  notice to attend the assizes. None of  them know whether they will have to  attend at Kaniloops or Vernon, and as  Kaniloops sitting will lie held Oct. 5,  they have not much time to find out.  Those from Hedley who were witnesses in the preliminary hearing were  Messrs. MacHaffie, Rose and Sproule.  Hedley may be too young to have  made much of a record for itself out-  .side of its big gold mine, but by and  by it will be heard from in the line of  fruit growing as well. Mrs. Greenhill  brought into the Gazette office a couple  of ripe peaches grown in her garden  from peach stones planted by herself.  The peaches measured 7X inches in circumference, and were of excellent  flavor.  Frank Sauve was up from Keremeos.

Mr. Charles Camsell, who has been  connected with the Geologicnl Survey  for nine years, had a party of assistants engaged allsesison preparing the  preliminaries for his proposed geological report find topographical map of  the Tulaineen mining, region in the  Similkameen district. The district  embraces about three hundred square  miles. Mr. Camsell will devote next  season to that district. His observations as well as the map giving a detailed survey indicated in colors, will be  forthcoming the following spring.  Speaking of the mining in the Hedley. district, Mr. Camsell said :  "Ownership in the Nickel Plate is  vested in the Yale Mining Company,  a close corporation owned by the Marcus, Daly estate. Although no official  statements are givi<n out, it is an open  secret that the values in gold are  high. One .hundred.-men find steady  employment. ���������''���������'���������'  '���������The ore is crushed by a battery of  forty stamps, seventy per cent.'of tho  gold being .saved-on the plates, and  treated by the cyaniding process. The  concentrates, probably running, sixteen to one, are shipped to the Everett  smelter. The treatment facilities at  the mine are excellent. The plant  is owned by a subsidiary corporation  called the Daly Reduction Company.  It handles 150 tons daily.  "The'ore occurs as contact deposits  in andesite, with quartzites and limestone.- There are numerous promising  claims in the same region, but the development work is not extensive. The  Kingston Mining Company has done  some development, but operations are  suspended at present. In a. different  section of the cam]) the Golden Zone  group and the property ok the Pollock  Mines Company are being opened up.  "Special attention has been devoted  this year to defining the limits of the  platinum licit, where the indications  for extracting this precious metal on  a commercial scale are excellent.  Mining is now being carried on along  the sand bars in a desultory way by  the Chinese. The proposed map will  prove unusually interesting owing to  the varieties of ore found in the district. Coal, copper, gold, silver and  platinum occur- in various corners of a  comparatively small area. Bear Creek,  where the Granby people are opening  up a. l.-.rge copper mine, is situated  in the same district, whose geological  boundaries will be accurately defined  for the first time."  c  HANDBOOK.
