The first train to come through from  Spokane to Hedley in one day was  that which arrived after midnight on  Monday night when Superintendent  Morgan's private car brought in Mr.  and Mrs. I. L.' Merrill, Mi. and Mrs.  C. G. Merrill and M. K. Rodgers, accompanied by Mr. Morgan of the Gt.  Northern. This is President Merrill's  first visit to Hedley since the new  company has taken over the property,  and he comes as never president of  the company came' before, .for he  comes with a thorough knowledge of  the concern over whose interests he'  has been elected to preside, and he  comes to confer with his subordinates  on the subject of ways and means for  the best method of conducting operations.     ' '     -  Mi-. C. G. Merrill is an authority oh  the subject of milling and cyaniding, a  branch of, tlie mining industry which  he has done much to promote. His invention of the Merrill filter press was  one of the most pronounced forward  steps in cyaniding that has been made  for- years, accomplishing as it did a  thorough extraction of values by cyanide from pulp slimes, and that is the  very thing that Iras been needed in  Hedley to stop ��������� the waste which hao  been going on.  Doubtless many matters connected  with the mine and works will be gone  into thoroughly during this visit of  the president, and henceforth headquarters will keep in closer touch with  operations on the ground than has  ever been done before.- i  WIRELESS EXPANSION  COURT DAY IN HEDLEY  The Section East of the Cascades Now  Receiving Attention  A FACTOR FOR PROGRESS  The Part Played   by the' Local Newspaper in Development of Every Town ...  >.  TOD  JL JLTL JL_-  NEW  ZEALAND  HOTEL  *      *      #     #     *  JOHN JACKSON, Proprietor  Everiitlting New and  First-Glass  Bur supplied with the Choicest  Liquors and Cigars, and Special  Attention   paid   to   the   Table.  The Western Can-Ida [Trade Gazette  recently had the following 'article on  ���������The Local Paper as a factor in the  Development of the Town':  Where, there is a railway station  and a fair collection of business houses and residences, you may be sure  to find a hustling individual who, is  locally known as 'the editor.' In  many instances he combines man v of  the mechanical duties of the office  with; that of editing his paper. He  is devoting his energies to the upbuilding of the town and district.  Incidentally he is adding to the value  of every town lot and every acre of  farm land within the district.  Unfortunately in many cases a newspaper-is not recognized as a financial  asset of a town, for the town seldom  realizes the amount of benefit it receives from a newspaper. With the  large number of people who are looking to this province as their future  home, the local newspaper is one of  the most potent factors in determining  their immediate location.  If a prospective, settler sees a copy  of a paper which contains a large  number of advertisements, he forms a  corresponding idea of the importance  of the town. If there be only a few  business houses represented in the ad.  columns, the rrurri who is not on the  spot does not know of the existence  of others, and therefore forms erroneous impressions of the business importance of the particular point under consideration. He may decide to  go to soirre place else, which is a direct loss to the town.  The advantage of advertising in the  local paper is one which is lost sight  of sometimes by retailers through the  marvelous successes in business by  men who attribute their achievements  largely to advertising, have to a great  extent corrected this impression. No  merchant would continue in business  if he did not have his sign board out.  He rightly concludes that the purchasing public would not know he was in  business if he did not let them know it.  If his advertisement does not appear  in the local paper the same argument  applies but with added force. In the  latter instance he is not orrly neglecting his opportunities, but putting his  own town irr a bad light.  Do not say that advertising is not  rend. That has been disproven so  long ago and so aften that it is unnecessary to repeat the proofs.  'At the last annual geheral meeting  of the United Wireless 'Telegraph Co.  a programme was outlined for expansion of the system during the year.  Part of this programme embraced the  building during the year of 425 land  stations on the American continent,  an important part of which was to be  a chain of stations from ��������� the Atlantic  to the Pacific. '  Since then, however,' the demand  for ��������� extension of the system where  business was offering, has interfered  somewhat with the general plan, although the interference has not  amounted to anything more serious  than a few months delay in completion.  One instance of the unforeseen demands was that of the great lakes  where an urgent call for extension  was made, and on investigation proved to be one of the most important  opportunities presenting. The result  has been that since April 1st the co.  have put in on the great lakes 17 new  land stations and equipped 25 lake  craft, everyone of which;is turning in  a nice income to head office.  That the original programme, however,,is not being lost sight of may be  seen,from the following extract from  the;Spokane Chronicle,:  ' "A contract has been closed by,C. B.  Cooper, representing-the contracting  and construction department of the  United. Wireless Telegraph Company,  with the owners of the Madison hotel,  for the construction of a wireless station on the roof of that building'. Order's we.re.sent- to Chicago for the .shipment of the big 50-foot tower, and the  work.of constructing the station will  begin,immediately upon arrival of the  isup^rstr'upfcnre^and;tower."" ���������,-  The 50-foot; tower will Ipesurmounted  with a pole. 60 feet high, and- on.r-.the  top of this will be placed the, receiving,  and sending pole.   This will make a  total height of over-195 feet.   Asked  why the Madison hotel had been selected as a station location,. Mi-.  Cooper  explained that the  building is centrally located, and built of extra strong  material,  besides there  is plenty of  room on the roofs for the guy. ropes of  the tower.   Another reason is that the  immediate neighborhood is exceptionally free from telephone and telegraph  wires..  "This will be one of the largest inland stations to be constructed this  year. The instruments will have a  three kilowatt capacity, which will  develop sufficient power to send the  aerograms oyer,the Cascades. In case  this is not sufficient, a station will be  erected at a point in the mountain  range and used as a relay. The crew  on construction will be here in about  two weeks, and begin work at once.  The other towns on Mi'. Cooper's  route are Wenatchee, Ths Dalles,  Walla Walla and North Yakirrra.  These will be fitted with wireless stations and connected with Portland  arrd other Coast points.  The offices of the company in the  rotunda of the Madisorr hotel will be  eqrripped with the instruments where  they may be viewed by the general  public, and the company expects to do  a regular commercial business, accepting messages for transmission over-  other telegraph and telephone lines  not reached by their system. The  company will maintain the same  schedule of tariffs as is now in force  by the Western Union and Postal  companies.  Judge Brown Presides at Lengthy Sitting  of County Court  ROASTING THE  CONSTABLE  The sittings of the County Court of  Yale set for Oct. 6th at Hedley seemed  to have found the people here in more  litigious mood than ever before.  Both  Judge Brown  and   his   predecessors,  Clement arrd Spinks,  have come here  for an advertised sitting of the court  to find either an empty- docket or so  little litigation   pending   that a few  minutes only was required to dispose  of it all.   This time,  however, he was  forced to listen to evidence and argument pro and con for two whole days.  The first case taken up was Hackney  vs. Hose.   Plaintiff's counsel askedfor  -adjournment to next session of court  and defendant's counsel objected. The  Judge after due consideration adjourned the case until 9.30 a.m. next day.  Defendant had requested trial by jury  and the following jury was empanelled:  Jno.  Gladden,   E.  D. Boeing,   J. A.  Schubert, J. D. Brass and Paul Brod-  hagerr.  Bradshaw vs. Shelder was the next  case called. It was an action for  breach of contract the plaintiff suing  the '.defendant.-', for $600 damages because of far lure, of the latter to,clear-  up 16 acres of land. The hearing involved the review of a considerable  volume of business, but the facts were  not hard to get at as the evidence of  both plaintiff and defendant tallied in  almost every particular, the only difference being that each took a different  view of those facts. ��������� W. H. T. Gahan,  of Penticton, appeared for the plaintiff  and J. P. McLeod for the defendant.  Judgment was given for the plaintiff  for $200,. "  Edmonds vs. Rose was an action to  recover the amount of a butcher bill,  defendant having an offset the validity  of which the court had to determine,  whether it was for money, loaned or a  gambling debfc unpaid. The case was  <idjourheel to get the evidence of  part'i'es in the game. Judgment was  given for"plaintiff'less' the amount of  offset, which .was'allowed,'...the costs  going against plaintiff. W.H.T. Gahan  appeared for plaintiff arid J. P. McLeod for the'deferice;  Hackney vs. Rose took up the entire  day on Friday from 9.30 a.m. until  nightfall. Plaintiffs claim of $800.  Was for arrears of, rent, $118.84, of  which was on garnishee and damage  to the property beyond reasonable  wear and tear'and defendant h-id a set  off chrim connected with breach of  covenant for peaceable possession.  The jury had'a strenuous day of it and  wound up tlie job with an award  which required defendant to pay  plaintiff $162 and plaintiff to pay defendant $320. The Judge gave the  costs against the plaiutiff.  Sundry Performances on the Part of Provincial Constabulary Now in  Lime-Light  The press of the district are at the  present time in a censorious mood so  far as their attitude to the provincial  constabulary is concerned. A short  time ago the Greenwood Ledge sard  plain things that were far from com-,  pliinentary, and now the Vernon  News hands out a vigorous jolt tn this  portion of the Attorney-General's department. The News is indignant at  the escape of Alex Smith who is believed to have burned down the Okanagan hotel in that town which resulted in  the loss  of eleven lives.  "The fact is," it-says, "that the record of police work in this province  for-Lhe past few years has been anything but creditable. Escapes and  failures of justice have been the rule  rather than the exception. The murderer- of Zimmerman at Penticton  has never been brought to justice.  Neither have the Midway murderers.  The man who killed a companion over  a game of cards at, Keremeos made  good hrs escape, and is still at large.  A prominent farmer was sand-bagged  and robbed on the commonage road,  near the city a year or two ago, .and  the perpetrator of the crime still remains unknown.  "Alex Smith   told   the   man   from  whom he borrowed a revolver that he  would-lie low for a few days, and then  get a horse and make . his way across  ,  the line.     It looks as if he had siiceed-  ed in  carrying this plan  into effect.  There is little chance of the mystery  of the fire being cleared up unless he  is  caught,  and most people have now  given up any hope that Iris arrest will  be consummated. This whole case was  badly  bungled from  the  start.    The  lawyer representing  the Crown handled it in . about as foolish a manner as  can well be conceived.   He took exactly the course calculated to put Smith  oh his guard, and induced him to seek  safety inflight.   He had him up a day  before the inquest started,  and subjected  him 'to a private examination,  in which it was plainly shown that he  was under suspicion.  The. natural consequence was "that  Smith decided to  fly.     No watch   was   kept  over  his  movements,  though the chief of the  city police bad risked for a warrant for  his arrest.    He borrowed a grrn  and  walked out of town without the slightest effort being 'made  to  prevent his  departure. This is about as raw a case  of inefficiency as ever came  to   our  notice,  and demands the fullest possible investigationfrom theauthorities."  ACCEPTANCE NO PROTECTION  The Acceptance "Stamp on a'Check is No  Longer a Guarantee that it  is Genuine  Following on the defalcations of  bank clerk Anderson, of Toronto, who  by using, the usual acceptance stamp  wliich he was alleged to have takerr  with him when he left the banks employ, managed to do up the banks, and  some business firms to the extent of a  few thousand, another crook has been  working the same game around New  Westminster and Seattle.  The Columbian in referring to it  says:  "From  information received here it  LAYING THE FOUNDATION  First Steps for Creation   of   a  ian Navy  Canad  ian not be afraid the newspaperman will get rich too quickly if you  patronize him. It is characteristic of  the business that the men engage in  it do iiot lay up hoarded wealth with  alarming rapidity. They are always  buying something that will enable  them to get out a better jraper, or  improving their place of business.  They improve their- paper just as  surely and as quickly as their papers  are awarded with financial support.  They are boosting their- town arrd  their district o(>5 days in the year and  every year they are in business.  ADVKHTISK   IN   THK   GAZETTE!  appears that the young man who  operated here so successfully recently  arrd who has victimized banks and  financial corporations and wholesale  houses all over Canada has extended  his operations to the United States.  One day last week he walked into the  Great Northern depot at Seattle and  asked for a ticket to Georgia.. He  tendered as payment the above check.  The ticket was sold and the balance  was given to the swindler in cash. He  then left the city and has not since  been seen.  This additional fraud means that  the acceptance stamp which has been  widelv used as a guarantee of the  worth of a check will in future be of  no use.    The local managers of banks  Ottawa,   Oct.   1.���������Commander J. D.  D. Stewart and P. J. Ling of the Imperial  navy staff  have arrived in Ottawa and  will at  once  take   up the  work  of advising the  Canadian Government irr the organization of a Canadian navy.     Mi-. Stewart will be chief  of staff and Mr. Ling is staff officer of  the Imperial  navy branch  of the service  which   has  charge   of staff and  financial  matters in  connection   with  the navy.   Among other matters they  will give,  their advice  irr  connection  with  the framing of legislation which  will be submitted to parliament when  the house rrreets.    They will remain in  Canada as long as their services are  required.  and the Trust Company in this city  will refuse to accept any more checks  with   the   acceptance   stamp    unless  they personally know  the presenter  and   know   that he  is  good  for   the  amount in  case the check is returned.  This   sarrre   condition   of   affairs   pre  vailed  in   England some 30 years ago  and resulted in  accepted   checks  being refused  unless   the parties  were  well known  and  it is  expected   that  this will follow here also.  Grading for the station ground on  smelter flat will be done forthwith.  The station contractors are at work  building the section houses. THE   HEDLEY GAZETTE, OCTOBER 14, 1909.

C. .'..���������:������������������ ���������':,.-  "JO AS M.SMITH  Beaverdoll, Oct. loth, 1909. 38-4'      ,  NOTICE  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  On   various    occasions     the  Gazette has drawn attention to  the   unprotected- condition   of  ��������� the   cemetery and urged that  steps be taken for at least having   it fenced,  but apparently  no one  seems to  want to take  the  initiative in  making   a decided move in  the matter, and  in the absence of incorporation,  no organization exists that can  do so.    The whole policy of the  town  in   connection   with  the  the cemetery   has been a policy  of drift,  or in other  words, letting it look  after itself..  When  the first   burial took  place just  live years  ago,  no one knew a  day ahead of the funeral where  the  grave  would  be   dug and  with  Mr.   Rodgers'   permission  the  place  selected  was   where  most of the graves are. . Once or  twice during the next two years  it was talked  ot at meetings of  the  then  Board  of Trade  and  at one  time the question went  so  far as   to   have   Mr. Burritt  consulted  about  having a conveyance  in trust made to some  one or more who might consent  to act as cemetery trustees, and  the  proposition  then    was    to  have it located to  the  west of  the    mountain    beyond    Pinto  flat on a piece  of ground  held  by Wos.   Rodgers,   so  that the  cemetery    might    be   removed  from the present location before  further burials took place. Later on it was Mr.  M. K. Rodgers'  intention   to  cede   a   piece    of  ground    covering    the  present  location,    and   wo   understand  that  he  always    kept  that in  view, with the result  that a reservation    for   cemetery    purposes for the use of the town is  held out   of   the   land   turned  over to the new company. This,  and tlie ic-mber  of interments  which have been made,  practically    anchors    the    cemetery  there, and   all that remains for  us  to   do   is   to   see   that  it  is  managed   and   eared   for  as  a  cemetery should be. It is a duty  wo  all   owe   not   only   to   the  m e in o r y     of    tl.10.se   interred  therein,   but a  duty  we owe to  'Aii  organization   having  .it's  headquarters   in   Toronto  and  calling   itself    the    "Canadian  Peace and Arbitration Society"  is sending  out petition'forms  and circulars to tlie press.    The  heading  of the  petition   reads  all right,  and merely-asks that  the    Government    of    Canada  either alone or jointly with the  United   States   arrange   for   a  national or  international  commemoration of the 100 years of  peace that have existed between  the  two   countries.      This   we  could  surely all   subscribe   to,  but the blank postal cards which  they -send but requesting'membership  in- the  Society accompanied  by a  donation,  goes a  trifle further,  and the  manner  in  which   it raves about   preserving Canada from Militarization,  suggests the  propriety of  calling it   the  "Peace   at   any  Price" Society.    With Germany  menacing British integrity Canada begins co feel her life-blood  stirring with the   praiseworthy  motive Of preparing to aid the  old mother across the sea. These  are the days for organization of  a Canadian Navy and Canadian  Boy Scouts,  and neither one of  these is incompatible with due  regard for the perpetual maintenance of the hundred years of  peace,  the  propagandas of the  Peace at any  Price  Society to  the contrary  notwithstanding.  Nevertheless   those   who   may  wish   to  sign  the petition   will  find it here at the Gazette office  and when signed it will be sent  to   the   headquarters    of    the  Society.

JAMES WALLACE  Princeton, Oct. 8th, 1909 29-4  A Fenian paper in Ireland,  bearing the misnamed title of  Freeman's Journal thus discourses on Canada:  "The reason  Canada  immigrants  is that  inhabitants  at any  cost in suffering   to   newcomers.     When  requires  it must get  luty  ourselves to sec that the ground  is fenced, instead of lying out  an open   common,   over which  wolves IioavI around cowbyres  there ss need of foreign thousands if only to act as a sort of  vermin-killers. Many of the  newcomers will go mad with  the desperation of loneliness  and the bitter hardshipa of life;  many will fall in utter misery  by the. wayside; some will live  through it all. The vermin-killing will one day all be done and  the dreaiy, empty spaces will  begin to be really habitable by  a normal human being.  "This is Canada's need : First,  bands of victims romantically  called pioneers; then afterwards  on the ruins of these, happier  throngs Avho will reap in joy  where others sowed in sorrow."  Freeman's Journal also remarks that the free farms are  situated in a dreary neighborhood of nature's wildest freaks.'

Judge Brown is shortly to take up  his residence in Grand Forks; So says  the Grand Forks Gazette.  Mrs. Whillans and Frances returned  on Saturday from a months' outing at  the coast, including the A. Y. P.  The farmers on ���������Rock' Mountain are  now engaged threshing the. biggest-  crop they ever had on the mountain.;  Part of the work done by the material train last week was distribution of  the fence posts for the railway fencing.  Homer Maclean and his sister Myrtle  returned on Saturday from a month's  trip which   included   the  Kootenays  and the Coast.  , Charles   Camsell   has   l'oturned   to  Ottawa.    His outfit is stored at Nicola  which would  indicate that next-,.season's operations  will be in   that   locality.  W. Man ley, has succeeded Mr. Gep-  hart a<5  trainmaster, on'-V.

Pleasance lost a valuable  horse  last week.   The animal lay down  in  his stall during the night in  such a  way that he couldn't get upagain. and  in his efforts to do so, sustained injuries which necessitated having him  shot. . '      <  Barrister    Gahan.     of    Penticton,  was    in   town   last  week  attending  court, accompanied by his father who  drove over with him to see the country.  Messrs.  Gahan and  McLeod went on  to Princeton to attend the sessions of  the court there.  A Grizette reader in Alaska sends a  message' to; the editor. .to dry. up .and  quit complaining aborrt dry weather.  There they are soaked from morning  until night ina continual down-pour  of rain' and no wonder it makes them  mad to see others kicking about too.  much dry weather. ......  A sample bfwhat the Similkameen  can do is to be seen in Mrs. Lyon's  store window where potatoes are on  exhibition that would be hard to beat  at the best fairs in the country. Alongside of them are the monstrous stalks  on which they grew. Soil that will  produce such growth cannot be beaten  anywhere. /  L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., is expected home in a few days. He is now on  his way from the east. The series/of  operations which he had to undergo  was a severe trial on his strength, Hut  permanent benefit is believed to have  resulted and he is regaining strength  ���������as: fast as could be expected considering  the extreme point to which he had  been reduced.  Mr. C. A. Crawford, auditor for the  Daly estate completed his work in  Hedley last week and went out on  Friday morning. It is possible that  this may have heen Mr. Crawford's  last trip to Hedley, which he has visited regularly each year for the past  six years. In Hedley"he made a number of warm friends who will, regret  any cessation of his regular visits.  Harry Swan who has been building  a stamp mill at Hollis, Alaska, for M.  K. Rodgers, was called to his home in  New Brunswick where his aged  mother was dangerously ill. Fortunately he was able to reach there before  she died, He has returned to Alaska  to finish up his contract, but expects  to return to the Similkameen shortly,  this being the only climate which lie  considers fit for a white man  to live  PROVINCIAL ELECTIONS AGT  Take, Notice'that I have ; received .objections  in writin,  names being retained on the list of voters for the Similkameen  Name of person Last Known address Occupation ���������Name of person  Atherton, AV'nr.

JAMES R BROWN,  '.'������������������' Registrar of Voters, Similkameen Electorial District  The telegraph poles along- the rail  way are all in now  between here and  the wire has  ire telephone at-  rn.  It is reported from Kaniloops that  Frank Belmont held with J, A.  Pake to await tr-ial'.'i'or the burning  of the jewellery store, at Enderby, had  escaped jail with two other prisoners  and is still at large. Tt is said that  the men got hold of the keys and at  their leisure quietly walked out. It  looks like another of those familiar  Bill Miner lock-outs.���������Enderby Press.  Keremeos and much of  been, strung. There  tachmehts as well and tlie lirie is being used for phoning purposes by the  railway in connection with their own  business. The wire used is a copper  wire with a steel core, which gives the  greatest degree of transrnissibility  combined with the necessary tensile  strength.  Mr. Kennedy was in town on Saturday evening and went back to his,  home in Keremeos. Ever since completion of the track to Hedley Mr.  Kennedy has been able to spend most  of his evenings at his own fireside instead of putting up with the discomforts of hotel life abroad, for���������-the construction trains are subject, to his  order and are expected to take him to  any part of the line that has not been  taken over by the operating department of the railway.  Local golfers have been giving their  attention recently to the first half of  the new eighteen hole course laid out  by Mr. Hoy when he was here a  couple of months ago. Nine of the  holes have been put irr commission,  and the playing of them adds fresh  interest as they require more strenuous work and greater care than the  old course. The play also is varied by  substituting an occasional game of  ������������������foursomes' for the individual playing  in group's which has mostly been played here. J  A few cases of a mild type of fever  resembling typhoid developed in the  bridge gang at the third crossing.  The water they were using was from  the Similkaineen river and should not  be expected to have caused it. There  are no cases in town which indicates  that Hedley town water is maintaining its well established reputation for  purity. The deadly germ-carrying  house-fly which is often allowed too  great liberty around the cook houses  of road camps, may be responsible in  this case.  The V. V. & E. yards on Pinto flat  have been the scene of considerable  bustle for the past terr days. So much  so that the tram-master who was formerly at Keremeos has made this his  headquarters and every night three  eirgirres and a yard full of ears were to  be found here. There are four work  eirgirres on the job. One is on the  track-layer, two ballasting arrd the  fourth bringing material up from Keremeos. The track-laying engine and  the two on ballasting do not go any  further south now than Hedley, and  neither- does the engine on the material train have to co back as frequently as before, owing to tin* fact that  most- of the material has already been  brought forward.
