GREGORY  CIVIL ENGINEER akd BRITISH  COLUMBIA LAND SURVEYOR  Star Building Princeton  In line with the policy they pursued  in the past the Hedley Gold Mining Co  are adhering to the arrangement of  graduating the wage scale on the  price of copper although a higher price  of copper does not benefit them a cent.  Yesterday a notice went up at the  works that all the men in the employ  of the Company would participate in  iri the raise and it is reto-active, being  made to take, effect on September 1st.  Quite a few men in the employ of the  company.for special capability in their  work, are being paid a wage higher  than the regular* scale paid in other  camps.for the same class of work.  So far as known the Nickel Plate  is the only gold mine in Canada that  has 110 income from copper out-put  and yet grants to its employees all  the benefits of the copper sliding  scale.  Hedley Gold Mining Company Given the  Lower Position on River.  The decision in the water case on  the Similkmncen River was handed  dowrr by the Minister of Larids on Monday. It gives to the Hedley Gold Mining Company the lower record on the  river under certain conditions arrd  moves the holder of the prior right  farther up the stream on a site which  it is claimed they can build on at much  less experrse than by the plans which  they had fyled.  As the holders of the prior right  were put to a certain amount of expense in survey" work to prepare the  plans which they fyled a nil will be compelled to incur still further expense in  a re-survey of the new location farther- up, in case they should still undertake the project of building, the  Hedley Gold Mining Company, by  the Minister's decision, will be required to re-iinburse the cost of the  prior right survey already made, and  also to do for them any further survey work which they may require lo  get ready their plans for building on  the new site.  The decision on the whole seems a  reasonable one and the greatest fault  to be foirrrd with it is the delay in  giving it, for .by the delay much valuable time has been wasted and good  building weather lost.  Whether the Board of Directors in  New York will accept the record under  the conditions imposed remains to he  seen, but the power-situation appears  to have become so serious that it looks  as if something irr the direction of  building must be done at once.

WINKLER,     Proprietor,  Ottawa, Oct. 4.���������"Canada is solving  today the biggest immigration question the world has ever seen. As chief  Canadian lerturer in Britain I am going across the Dominion on a tour of  observation," said Mr. F. Campbell, a  member of the Canadian immigration  service.    .  "I am making just now a careful  tour of observation preparatory to my  winter lecture tour,"-lie said.  "As to the statement, that we are  flooding Canada indiscriminately with  immigrants, nothing could be-further  from the facts. We have the biggest  immigration problem the world has  ever seen.  "At its height, immigration to the  Urrited States reached only 1.7 percent of its population, whereas ours is  now 4.4 per cent. Carrada's small population, scattered over so large an area,  will never be able to assimilate such  great numbers unless they are the  right type.  "As regards the cry for agricultural  immigration only, however, I would  like to point out that only about 1,000,-  000 people in England are engaged in  farming. Why, if wo brought orrt  agriculturists only and did so at the  rate we are now conducting immigration, England would not have a farmer left in three years. The next best  thing, therefore, is to get intelligent  people of a good type, whom we can  train to work on the land."   .4.   HOSPITAL    DONATIONS  Renewed interest in the affairs of  the Golden Zone has been awakened  by the visit the end of last week, of  Mr. C. H. Poirer M: E. Mr. Poirer  has been sent here by a man named  Brown who it appears has become  interested in the property from buying Gold Plate Mines shares from C.  H. Brookes after he left British Columbia last winter.  Mr. Poirier is well acquainted with  the Cobalt and Porcupine Gold Fields  where he was employed in a profesion-  al way by some mining companies,  and on his arrival in Camp Hedley  where he came well recommended, he  paid a visit to the Nickel Plate mine  in company with Mr. Jones and was  shown the workings.  On Monday he went up to the Gold-  Zone and after looking over the ground  concluded to have the workings pumped out for'examination. He took Fred  Qwatkin who is best acquainted with  the plant and George Bowerman as  assistant.  If the examination arid report made  by Mr. Poirier should be satisfactory  to Mr. Brown, he is likely to discharge  the indebtness against the property  and make arrangements for more development work.  The Royal CoiiiiiiL-sion appointed hy  the Dominion government lo inquire  into the whole question of the triune  of Indian lands and the welfare of  these dusky wards of tho government,  has already dorre a lot of work in British Columbia and on Mimihiy and  Tuesday next, October the 18th and  llth, they will hold sessions in Hedley.  Earlier in the year they held long  sessions in investigating the affairs of  the coast tribe-' arrd later went1 up  north. The Province of British Columbia is represented orr the commission by Mr-. J. P. Shaw the representative for Kaniloops in the legislature.  Dr. McKenna is chairman of the Commission and Mr. ,T. H. Bergeron of  Beauharnors is secretary. iMr. T. J.  Coirrnriskey, inspector of agencies, will  he present.  We have not heard whether a chief  has been regularly appointed to fill  the vacancy occasioned by the death  of the late chief Charlie Allison, and  if not .it will be unfortunate that the  Commission   will find a chiefless band.  CAMP CLIFTON SHUTS DOWN  Diarnorrd Drill Operations   Hampered   by  Unfavorable Weather  CAUSE OF LATE TRAINS  And  a  Little   harmless    Suggestion  Lessen the Inconvenience  to  USES FOR SAWDUST  Valuable By-Product Now Going to  Waste  The matron of the Hedley General  Hospital acknowledges receipt from  Mrs. Harry Tweddle of Keremeos  Centre, of two boxes of peaches and a  box each of prunes, grapes and crab-  apples.  Ottawa, Oct. 1.���������That everyone of  the countless tons of sawdust which  annually go to waste in the mills in  and around Ottawa would yield a byproduct valued at $40, is the interesting information to be gathered  from a bulletin just issued by the  forestry branch of the Department of  the interior.  The by-products are acetone arrd  fusel oil, which are worth about $400  a ton, and it takes about ten tons of  sawdust to make one of these valuable  constituents.  " The discovery is the result of experiments made, in England, which  have.demonstrated that the commercially successful production of acetone  arid fusel oil from sawdust is possible  through a simple process of fermentation   From these two products isoprene  can be derived, and this in turn can be  converted into rubber merely by allowing it to lie in contact with a small  quantity of the'metal sodium.  It is a good sign to see the train late  on Coalmorrt days���������Mondays and Fridays. It indicates movement of material to the end of the track a few  miles above Coahrront* And it may  also indicate renewed activity ,in coal  mining at Coahrront itself. Another  feature which is responsible for sorrre  late trains is the duty the train crews  have to perform every clay or* two in  placing coal cars at the cement works.  The original plan of the B. C. Portland  Cement Co. to procure their coal supply from the United Empire Co. miscarried through inability of that concern to deliver in sufficient quantity  to keep the works going,but the mines  of the Princeton Coal'and Land Co.  are easily taking care of it in addition  to supplying their other customers  locally and on the outside. The public do not mind the inconvenience of  late tiairrs where the lateness is din-  to growing prosperity of the district  ���������in"which'they themselves are bound  in some degree to share'.'  One little thing which, need not cost  the   railway   company nor   anybody  %��������� *        *  else a single  cent and  which   would  lessen the inconvenience to the public  a great deal,   would  be  to  have the  train   conductor  and   the   agents   at  Keremeos, Hedley and Princeton get  together and size  up the extra, work  on these special days that are likely to  cause delay and  enable the agents to  write on the blackboard at the station  the minimum probability of lateness  and also notify the  central telephone  agent.    In this way the public may ascertain  how late the  train is likely to  be and  need not  hurry to  the station  hours  before   the   train   is   likely  to  leave.     This would  not cost  the railway a cent,   but on  the contrary it  could   be made  to yield the  By. extra  business  by encouraging local travel.  With the government office located at  Princeton   there is  often   that people  living dowrr   the valley  would   make  the round trip  to Princeton   in  the  hope of doing a little business between  trains,   but   if  the  west-bound   train  should happen to be half an hour late  and it is necessary to be at the Princeton station at 1:30 for the return trip,  there  is simply  no   time  to  do  anything and  the  time and  expense   of  making  the  trip  would  be  lost.    At  present with   this   disability   -staring  them  in the  face the  public conclude  to not make the trip but to do the  business  by correspondence, even if it  should take a few days longer.  Now when a suggestion of this kind  is put up to a divisional superintendent of the C. P. R. and that official is  shown where there is a chance of extra earnings for the railway in his  division, and the public are given  something which will please them,  there is always going to be something  doirrg; but the public have yet to be  convinced of this in the case of some  other railways and their divisional  superintendents. We have no fault  Continued on Vago Three  Pur the past fortnight there have  been water troubles to contend with  owing to the severe frosts at nights  and the long line of about 0000 feet of  water pipe exposed orr the surface of  the ground arrd this hampered the  work lo a considerable degree, but  they were not up against the real  thing until the heavy,snow of Friday  night last and the dip of 8 degrees irr  temperature. This coming on top of  the shortage irr power' made the prosecution of the .work unsatisfactory and  Mr. Beam decided to shut down for  the season.  The camp was established last spring  as soon as the srrow had disappeared  sufficiently to enable them to make  the necessary preparations and the  drills were started early in .Tune on ,  the Bed Mountain claim. A lot of  surface preparations was necessary in  order to get a foothold on the steep  mountain side where the drilling was  done and all that will be ready for  them next spiimr when they are ready "  to resume operations.  Three deep holes were, put down arrd  of course the results are known only  to themselves, but there is good reason to believe that they have been encouraging. The diamond drill in the  hands of experienced mining operators  can ofteir give very valuable information that in the hands of less skillful  merr would be considered altogether  negative. Whatever the story may ,  be tlrat the drill-holes told, Mr. Beam '  al* all events does not appear to be at  all cast down.  On Tuesday the most of the stuff  which could not be left on the ground  over winter was taken back to'the  mine and stored away.  CANADA'S BORROWINGS  JUSTIFIED  Mr.   C.   B.   Gordon,   President of Canadian Manufacturers' Association,  Speaks of Western Progress  Probably-110  subject  has   been, so,  thoroughly discussed .miring  the  last  few months as the financial stringency  which the. country  has  been   passing  through.    This   has -been  occasioned,  as far as Canada is concerned,'  largely  because of the fact that she has had to  expand so rapidly, making it necessary  for her, as a country, and for her railroads and municipalities,'towns and  cities,  to   borrow,    very > largely   in  Great Britain  and elsewhere.        Fertile most part, I think this  borrowing  has  been  amply   justified,    and    the  money thus obtained well spent and  honestly invested,  so  that   we   may  look for it to  produce  the results  it  was intended  to  produce.    No doubt  there are cases where cities and towns  have strained their borrowing powers,  and  have   been   eager  to grow  more  rapidly than the circumstance of their  position and surroundings warranted.  Reports,   however,    of   those   who  have just returned from the west, and  whom I have interviewed in the past  few days, including the  heads of our  great railroads and banks,  agree  that  over-expansion has been the exception,  arrd  that much  of   the   wild-catting  which had been goirrg orr   in   real   estate and other directions is  rrow stopped.  ItOItnOWED OX ADVANTAGEOUS TEHMS  We know, also, that the crop is  practically assured, and that that  period of uncertainty in this respect  which causes the whole country so  much anxiety is now passed for this  ���������year.  ���������Up to the present time, the high  standing of this country in the markets of the world has made it possible  to borrow on the most advantageous  terms, and the enormous sums which  have come here have been procured  by our railroads and municipalities at  rates which, when compared with the  rates paid by the United States and  other countries, show a tremendous  saving for this country.

Unfortunately too it is in times of great stress.,  with public sentiment inflamed to a  dangerous point tlrat tlie voice of the  irresponsible firebrand is listened lo  rather than   the voice of calm reason.  Ulster appears to have no dearth  of good cabinet timber for her provisional government as they have the  worth and stamina of industrial" Ireland to choose from. Men like Sir Edward Carson, Lord Londonderry, the  Marquis of Abeicorn, dipt. Craig and  other rioted parliamentarians could be  counted on to maintain the best traditions of English parlianre.ntry life.  Could the same be said of rrrarry of the  retainers of John Redmond? And what  would become of British rule in Ireland  when even the customs control of goods  entering the country is placed in the  hands of men who refused to allow  the City of Dublin to tender a civic  reception to the King?  The American Good Roads Congress  in sessiorr  at Detroit expressed  their  intention  of trying  to secure a uniform   law   for   road   building   in   the  United States arrd Canada, and A. W.  Campbell the  Canadian Deputy Minister of Railways and Canals  who was  present representing   Canada   at the  Congress, promised to use   his best endeavor to have Mr. Borden  agree  to  the proposal.    Just what is implied rn  this  uniform  law  is  not  made  plain  but if it is rational and fair and in the  interests  of good  roads there need be  little fear as  to whether Mr. Borden  " will agree.     In view of what Mr. Borden's    government    has   already   attempted irr the direction of good roads  and   the opposition  encountered from  Mr.' Laurier which was carried even to  the  point   of   getting   the   moribund  senate  to   throw it out,  it  would  appear as if Mr. Campbell  should have  told the Congress that he would exert  his effort in the direction of making a  convert of Mr. Laurier to the cause of  good i-onds.

Miss Beale has been very ill during  the past week with pneumonia.  Sirrrday night's frost when he mercury dropped threu degrees below  - freezing made sad havoc with local  gardens.  J. D. Galloway, assistant to W.  Fleet Robertson, Provincial Mineralogist, was irr towrr for a couple of days  last week. , ���������  A foot of snow and eight degrees of  frost was the intitial instalment of  winter up at the Nickel Plate on Saturday morning.  Miss Walker, teacher of the .junior  department of the public school, has  been ill for a few days arrd was unable  to take her classes.',  Mrs. J. A. Brown of Ivererneos was  -a visitor to Hedley on Monday arrd  was accompanied by her- sister-in-law,  Mrs. Kork of Vancouver.  Mrs. R. C. Clarke of Kei-cineos and  her daughter, Miss Easton, spent the  week end in Hedley. They attended  Mrs. Dalton's "At Home" on Friday  afternoon.  A court session is being- held this  week at Princeton hy his honor J. R.  Brown, the County court Judge. Barrister I. II. Hallett of Greenwood is irr  attendance.  During Miss Allen's absence her  place as matron in the Hedley hospital  was capably filled by Miss McKerrzie  of Kerenreos, sister of Rev. G. T. Me-  Kerrzre who is a trained nurse.  The number of deer killed iir this  vicinity has rrot, been-very large this  year. Whether they are more scarce  **- ' than usual or the hunters have not  been able to locate their haunts is  still an open question.  The greens on the old golf links  have receiv-'ed some needed attention  and are now in prime condition for  play. The days are getting a trifle  short- now for evening play, but a  couple of hours in-the afternoon offers  opportunity for excellent sport.  The committee who have in hand  the fencing of the cemetery are waiting patiently for the road to be completed us that"will������������������ effect materially  the work to be done. What wits  originally.inteuded.as ,.the,.back. .w.ill'  uncler'the new arrangement; become  the front.  Owing to illness of Mrs. McKenzie at  Keremeos an exchange of pulpits was  arranged foi- Sunday evening last  when Rev. A. li. Cameron took tho  Methodist service of Rev. G. T. McKenzie in Hedley and .Mr. McKenzie  took tire Presbyterian service in Keremeos. . ���������  Ed. N. Clark of the erstwhile Coal  mont.Courier was up before the beak  in Princeton last week on a charge of  stealing.a bicycle from W. H. Holmes.  The charge was proven but he was let  off on suspended sentence. This disposal of the case in view of his re-  r pealed lapses, must be taken as a sort  of "fool's pardon."  The heird of the brick killed last  week by W. Simons was ;i rare one  and was remarkable, not for its symmetry brrb for a certain' freakish  hybi id arrangement of the eight points  which made it take on something of  the appearance of a caribou. The  head was sold to H. A. Barcello of  Kersmeos for $85.00.  The moving -picture- show on Friday  aud Saturday last was above tho aver-,  age. One reel in particular showing  the cranberry industry at Cape Cod  was highly interesting and instructive.  Pictures of that kind supply in a considerable, measure the benefits of  travel. There will be pictures this  week on Saturday night only.  While it is no longer "full steam  ahead" at II. Rose' road camp up near  Bromley's, work is being continued  there to finish rrp portions of the road  that were commenced and are in unfinished condition. After that- has  been done they will irr all probability  turn their attention to linking rrp the  new portion made near the Hedley  station with tho existing road.  A bush fire started down by the  river in the rear of M. K. Rodgers'  house on Wednesday of last week arrd  for a while it looked as if the house  arrd the railway trestle and bridge  over Twenty-mile might be burned.  The section hands arrd a few of those  who could bo spared for a short time  about the mill were rushed dowrr to  check the spread of the flames and  before long the danger was past. It  is not known how the fire came to be  set aird the suspicion lies betweerr  some careless camper arrd the locomotive of the rrp train.  The latest concession rrrade by the  C: P. R. to popularize that road for-  coast travel from interior points Is the  putting, on,of a through sleeper from  Okanagan Landing.to Vancouver.'Before, it was more or less of a scramble  to get a berth in the sleepers at Sica-  mous, and the comfort and convenience of getting settled shortly after  leaving the kind ing will be appreciated by all who travel over the route.  To those living in the Similkameen  valley also, this latest attraction of  the C. P. it. accentuates still farther  the folly of the Great Northern in persisting in the maintenance of that  Oroville lay-over.  F. II. French arrd his party who  started for the coast a little over a  fortnight ago, going by auto to Mer-  ritt, returned on Friday last. On the  return he broke the trip irr from Mer-  ritb by mnking a stop-over orre - night  at the Canyon House where a rai.'������  way construction camp is in operation, arrd between there and'Hedley  next day he had about fifty miles in  the snow which was encountered all  the way down the valley to Bromley's.  During their stay orr the coast Mr.  and Mrs. French were over at Victoria- were they saw a number of former Hedleyites and among them had  the pleaure of calling on Mr. aird Mrs.  J. Percy Watson.  G. H. Whiternan representing the  Princeton Coal & Land Company was  in towrr orr Monday. In reference to  the impression which had got around  that the price of their coal had been  increased a dollar* a torr.irr Hedley,  Mr1. Whiternan said that this Impression was altogether wrong and no  such increase had been made. Hedley  users, he said, were not required to  pay any higher price for the coal than  they had been getting it in the past.  Orr some of the output they had been  obliged to make slight increase but  this was rrecessitated by the cost of  production. Every manufacturing  concern which expects to know where  it is standing must look carefully after  the cost ot opt ration, and base its  prices on the results which the cost  sheets give.  ,   The. Gazette, has   been asked at various times when trout fishing must be  stopped   in this district,  and as nothing is contained in the existing "Game  Act"  to  supply  the  information   the  Attorney-general's   department    was  written   to  concerning it.    The letter  we-have "received in vr*t>ply ifeto  the  effect that the'close season for angling  for trout is a matter pertaining wholly  to the Dominion and by a Dominion  Order-in-council  passed at  Ottawa on  March lStlr, 1913, the close season was  fixed from'November loth  to   April  30th,   with   the exception'of  certain  waters  in the  interior of  British Columbia and also  the  portion   of the  province lying   west of the 120th meridian, when the open  season begins orr  the morning of March 10th. The wording of the  order-in-council would lead  one to infer that tins early dateJVfarclr  1(3th applied only to the year 1913 when  Easter' came earlier than ..usual and the  intention   was to allow anglers to adhere to  their usual .'custom of fishing  orr Good Friday.   Otherwise the form,  er date March 20th  would be the earliest that angling for trout could be indulged in   west of the 120th meridian.

When one  goes through the west and sees the  splendid buildings which the railroads  and banks are putting up in cities like  Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and  Vancouver, and, in fact, all the principal cities of the west, it must be apparent that a very large proportion of  new money coming this way is being  iiivested there, and that whatever  work is being done, is being done, is  being well done, and with a view to  the future requirements of the country. We have had to put up with the  most inadequate railroad terminals in  Montreal for many years, and still  have to put up with them, but in the  west they irrrrst be all up to date. 1  merely make these statements to show  that there should be no cause for complaint as between the east and west.���������  Monetarv Times.

The salmon-bellies, once the  darlings of tho province, have alienated public support by blackguardly  conduct at the recent match with the  Vancouvers.
