Rodgers, general manager of  the Nickel Plate mine near Hedley is  in the city. This property is regarded  by all mining men as second to none  other in the. province of British Columbia. Mr. Rodgers, who represents the  Marcus Daly interests, says himself  that he knoAvs of no property that He  would exchange for the Nickel Plate.  At the present time there are about  150 men employed. The advent of the  Great Northern railway to Hedley will  have a marked effect on the operations at the mine.  At the present time Mr. Rodgers  points out that the concentrates have  to be hauled.fifty miles by wagon road.  The result is that only high grade concentrates can be so handled.  The company has at Hedley a 40-  staiup mill. : The ore is easily supplied  Wit from the'mountain side above.  For years past the.priucipal operations  at the mine have been development  work. "When the Great Northern railway, which is how in course of construction, reaches Hedley, the situation  will be entirely changed. High grade  ore, of which there is a vast quantity  at the Nickel Plate, will then be shipped directly,out to the smelter. The  low grade ore will-be treated at the  mill before shipping the concentrates.  This condition of affairs has of course  been waited for by the company for a  long time. The completion of railway  connection will give the. opportunity to  fully develop the mine, which is among  the best in the province.  The capacity of the mills at Medley  will be greatly increased, probably  enlarged to three times '.heir present-  capacity. This will not be done until  the machinery necessary can lie shipped in by rail.  The completion of railway connection with Hedley will really mean the  transition of the Nickel Plate from a  mine in course, of development to a  producer.  The work on the Great Northern lin<  of ore already blocked out is sufficient  to class it as high grade and fit t,o be  shipped off for treatment, there is no  information given to indicate what the  final policy will .be for treatment of the  great mass of ore reserves of all values  now available. That it will ultimately  result in large smelting works close, at  hand, there is little reason to doubt,  for even if vast quantities of it are  sufficiently high grade to permit of  shipment to outside smelters; and if a  HIGH GRADE ORE IN VAST OIIANTITY great deal nune of it is of such ������ char-   - i actor as to enable., them  to recover a  i *  fair percentage of the values from  crushing and amalgamation in stamp  mills, it is well known that milling is  at best, a slow way of using up an ore  body. v Here, too, the ore body is not  only vast in extent, ,but the ore is very  hard to crush, 'thus limiting the duty  per stamp to an amount altogether too  small in proportion to.tbe amount required to be clone before any considerable portion of the. value of the'deposif  can be won.' And as for shipment to  outside smelters, while that would  doubtless be very acceptable to the railways and to smelters in the Boundary,  a little commercial arithmetic on the  part of the Daly Reduction financiers  would doubtless result in the working  out of a plan that would be much more  local in its application.  Mr. Rodgers' estimate of the comparative value of the Nickel Plate is a  clear cut statement of his belief in the  greatness of the mine, and is a declaration with which everyone will agree.  In taking up and developing the Nickel  Plate to its present stage he has an  achievement of which he may Avell be  proud, and his belief in the bright future in store for Hedley is also shared  by our citizens. Mr. Rodgers, as a  j citizen of the town, was public-spirited,  and if many an other man had been in  charge of the work, the town would  not have seen the public improvements that are in evidence in our  midst to-dav.  There are of course some features of  his policy that are open to criticism,  for all do not see alike; but in view of  the influences that he had to contend  against, and the difficulties to be surmounted through newness of the country, a just judgment,, will accord him  the measure of credit which is due for  what has been accomplished.

It is situated on  the  Similkameen  river at the -month of Stirling  creek  about four miles west of Hedley,   and  is one of the oldest institutions of the  place.   Tlie first saw-mill for this part  of the Similkameen river was run, by���������  J.  J.   McDonald,  one Of the picsent  owners, who then had as partner A. R.  Tillman.    Their mill was  a portable   '  concern mid   was staited  in -August,  1901. their market at  that time   being'  to supply, the  ranchers  in   the  lower ���������  Similkameen, and to turn oiit a bill of ''  lumber required by the Hedley Town---  site. Company.  They biought in the present plant in ���������  1902 and located it on J. Neill's ranch ���������  on the other side of the river where  suitable timber was available close at  hand, and the principal demand which  existed for the lumber at that time  was in filling a large bill of lumber required by the Daly Reduction Co.  The next year Tillman dropped out  and Angus SteAvart took over his interest, the mill being placed in its present location. Since then their lime  and attention has been fully taken up  to meet the demand for lumber, and it  must be acknowleged that they have  done exceedingly well to keep all interests supplied in the manner that  they  have.  The present location has its advantages audulso its disadvantages. One  of these latter is the haul of four miles  to deliver the lumber in to\vn. Another is the lack of a pond or pocket in'  the river'to'store logs and take the  Aveight off the. booms, for. in a river as  sAvift as the Sihiilkaiiieen and as subject to sudden rise and fall, the chance  of loss from breaking of a boom is  rather great.  At present the greater part of each  season's.cut is obtained a considerable  distance, up the stream. This year they  AArere obtained for the most part above  Princeton, on both the Similkameen  and Tulanieen rivers, although a great  ,many logs also Avere cut on Stirling-  creek and hauled in.  in the summer of 1901. to oln-iate  the. risk of holding so large a portion  of the season's cut on boom, a hoist  Avas rigged to pull the logs out of the  river as they reached the boom and  deck them in the yard to be hauled in  as required: but to save the expense  of double handling which this entailed  Avhich is being built from  Mid\vay, is  HEDLEY,  %������������������5i*i999a9������������������9.������*3������*aw8^I HEDLEY,  -   -   -   B.

Avere   recognized  Peck's old shoes, the  bandana bundle  which forms his portmanteau, the tomato can which he uses to quench his  ��������� thirst in the water-holes by the wayside, two hands on a bottle,  and lying  on its side,   in convenient reach,  is  a  barrel which permits a  double interpretation���������if full,  the  bottle may be  replenished therefrom, and if empty it  Avill come handy for a bunk over night.  By turning the shield on one side the  printer's stick i.s more  plainly recogr  nistitfl, and in it tire set as  they Avould  appear in type,  three words in  three  lines, "AV.-ilk, A\ralk, Avalk."   Above the  stick are crossed a quill   and a little,  hammer, for Peck wields the  pen  occasionally when he writes to  his girl  in 'Washington, and turns out puzzles,  poems find other jokes for the press?  ���������TENDERS are invited for the supply of 2000  * cords of wood, or any part of tins nmo^jft-r,  to be delivered and stacked at the Company's  works at Hedley.

THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, OCTOBER 26, 1905.  Town and District.  Thanksgiving! ! !  Which Avill have the hest time today  ���������a cleiifl turkey or <i live "blue grouse ?  Remember the ' Guild - Concert mid  -   Dance in Fraser's hall to-night.  H. A. Turner, of the South Yale  Copper Co., Copper Mountain, was in  toAvn on Tuesday.  R. H. Rogers, barrister, of Vernon,  was in town Tuesday night and drove  through to Princeton on legal business.  VV. H. Brule and wife came in on  Tuesday's stage. Mr. Brule takes a position Avith the Daly Reduction Co.  Miss Megraw, 'of the; Gazette - stalff,  left by Monday morning's stage for  Vancouver toconsult an eye specialist.  ' , Special Thanksgiving service will be  held next Sunday, evening in Hedley,  by Rev. E. P. PleAvelling.  Owing to so much Avet weather this  fall, the roads between Keremeos and'  Penticton are getting in bad shape.  W. E. Welby is down with typhoid  fever. He was taken to the Vernon  hospital about ten days ago.  ' The fool-killer should be fired.- He  has been letting his work get behind,  especially in regard to the gun-pointing  species.-  Mr. and Mrs. Donald McKay, of  Olalla, Avbo have been spending several  Aveeks in the vicinity .of Princeton,  spent Sunday in town and went out  by Monday morning's stage.    ,  Hughie Campbell and Frank Bailey  put in a busy summer prospecting and  mining in the Aspen Grove country,  but have come to the metropolis of the  Similkameen to winter.  ���������The hospital committee -have placed  cots in the building recently occupied  .   as  a  school room'" and got them -in  . leadiness  for  use   as  an  emergency  hospital.  Mr. McArdle, liveryman, of Grand  Forks-, accompanied Judge Clement  into the district this Aveek. Instead of  sending a driver along, he concluded  to make the trip in person and see the  country.  >' W. T. Shatford, resident managing  director of. the Southern Okanagan  Land Co., at Penticton, was, called to  California, and Mr. L. W. Shatford  left on Sunday morning for Penticton,  to take charge in his absence.  Engineer Bassett, who. was working  "in the Similkameen-Valley all spring  and   summer,   is now surveying the  "route-for the Midway & Vernon.    His  . gang-will work from the summit towards Vernon.  There are indications of an early  winter.'. The snow in the hills has been  gaining in depth with each successive  flurry, Until it begins to look-as if,  not spades but snow shovels will be  trumps from now until next April.  Green Mountain defies the district  ' to produce potatoes as large and sound  as those grown'.on L. A. Clark's ranch.  A mess of whoppers came in from  there last -week that were beauties,  being large, plump, round and clean-  skinned.  Nearly all the subscribers of the  Hedley telephone exchange are of the.  opinion that the usefulness of the service Avould be more than doubled by  having an'instrument placed in the C  P. R. freight office at Penticton. It  is estimated that over 75 per cent of  the telephone business done Avith Penticton is Avith the freight office, and  much valuable time would be .saved by  having a phone in the office.  Mr. MacHaffie received plans from  Victoria for the hospital building from  C. El wood Watkins of the firm of  Hooper and Watkins, architects. The  plans submitted (there Avere two of  them) seem admirably adapted for the  purpose and are designed with a vieAV  to obtaining the maximum of comfort  and accommodation with the minimum of expense. He supplied them  gratis on account of personal friendship for Mr. MacHaffie as Avell as sympathy Avith the  movement.  The Vernon News has done itself  proud in the special number issued, entitled "The Okanagan���������The Laud of  Fruit and Sunshine." The number sets  forth the resources of the OkanagM.n  in most attractive form, and compiler  and printer alike have won their mead  of highest praise for the finished goods.  Outsiders Avho want to knoAv all about  the upper Okanagan Avill find it there,  and residents Avho wish to present to  friends at a distance the beauties of  their western homes have the story  told for them-in its most attractive  way. The engravings are superb, but  the. engraver too must thank the  printer for the manner in Avhich they  are brought out, and the beautiful  letter press. Vernon has reason to be  proud ol' the whole affair.

Piper came over from Fairview  on Tuesday to begin work on'the cribbing in the creek bottom. Mr. Bate,  although convalescing, will not he in  shape to undertake the active supervision of work for some weqks yet., ,  Messrs. W. J. Manery and'Malcolm  McAuley have opened a butcher' shop  in the building on Webster st., lately  occupied by R. , ,T. Wynne, and have  on hand an attractive, looking supply  of meats of various kinds. M. McAul-  ay is in charge and the beeves come  from W. J. Manery's choice herd.  . There are indications that .Gt Northern cannonading Avill be heard in Hedley in a. fortnight or less, and railway  navvies become a common sight- on  our streets. It is claimed that notices  are now posted at the Nighthawk calling for tenders for the immediate construction of a mile at Hedley.  T'he-^storm and "cold-snap > of last  week, Avas a climatic freak. " On the  'higher altitudes, it is.not 'an. lincom-  mbn thing to have brie'short cold snap  in Npvemlier, when the temperature  stalls to" zeroV but to have it'.show 20  'degrees of /frost' in Octob^rV is souie-  .'thiih* altogether liiSheard of.   j    '���������!

'. The concert of the Scotch-Irish'-Coon  musical combination on Friday ' evening last, was enthusiastic, and the  ,'aUdience were coimnensm-ately happy.  To the encore committee special credit  is due, for they worked oVer-time. The  dance which was to follow, didn't materialize 'owing to an undue preponderance of the sterner sex.  The twice Jt-week stage to Princeton  is a very great convenience, instead of-  the old-weekly service in vogue before  the 'daily'was put on last ��������� siumher.  The tAvice a week service Avill in all  probability be maintained during the  winterand in the spring there is little  doubt that-the daily service will be  resumed.

Jamieson Gets  Four Years:  . The trial of Jimmy Jainieson, half-  breed, came olf at the'assizes in Vernon  last week. While the district will be  well rid of him for a space of four  years, there are many who know him  best who think that the sentence  should have been multiplied by 2.V.  The Vernon News reports the case as  follows:  The following jury was empanuelled  for the case of Hex vs. Jamieson: John.  Holland (foreman),   W. Clark, Arthur  Weeks,  William   Andrews,   William  Johnson, John McLennan, R. Oarswell,  S. L. Siriith, Henry Roeh, R. J. Mutvie,  Henry 8. Meakin, W. B. Finley.   This  was a case of rape or attempted rape  on a young Indian girl near Keremeos.  ���������After the alleged assault, the prisoner  had got into a fight with Francois, the '  father  of the girl,  in' the course of  which his hands and cheek had been  cut.   Jamieson  pleaded " not guilty."  The stories of the girl and her father  hung well together,  while that of the  prisoner, who was the only important  witness for the defence, involved such -  an  improbability as  the  unprovoked  attack of a perfectly sober man upon an  intoxicated one.    The jury brought in  a verdict of guilty on the second count,  and the prisoner, was sentenced to four  years imprisonment.    He was defended by E. P. Davies, of Vancouver, and  Stuart Henderson, of A.shcroft.   ���������  The Rifle  Matches.  The first match of the  Hedley Rifle  ,Association takes  place-to-ctay'on the  range to the west of the town.  .  tl.rThe match begins at_9 o'clock sharp,  (.town time).    In addition  to the cup  Which-is to lip shot for, and the money  prizes.-a medal has been presented by  J* AV. Shatford, M. P. P.  '.Three ranges will be ,shot,  viy.., 200,-  SOO'a'nd -100*' yards.     The winner of the  aggregate will take the cup  and hold  it until the next lnatch.
