GREAT -NORTHERN HOTEL  HEDLEY B.C.  Bar and Table the Best.   Rates Moderate  First Class Accommodation  JOHN JACKSON, Proprietor  On - Saturday last Mr.  T.   Walter  Beam  left   with   Mr.  Merrill for his  home in Denver.     Since  his arrival  here early in the spring to take charge  of the exploratory work in proving tip  the ground upon   which options were  taken   hy him earlier- in the year,  he  has given his  undivided .attention to  the work in hand.   Two months or  more were.'taken up with the preliminary  work in getting ready for drilling operations and what that involved  could only be appreciated   by  those  who .saw the obstacles  to be encountered from the deep snow and inaccessibility of the canyon.  Two pipe lines,  one  for air- and the other for water,  had to be carried over from the Nickel  Plate  more   than a  mile distant and  sites'made for the camp.   This left a  little less  than four months of actual  drilling,  and  but for the convenience  of heing able to obtain water and compressed air from the Nickel Plate very  little could have been done in the portion  of  the season   that remained to  them.     Three shifts  were   employed  and the'-crews kept manned to full  strength   all  the.  time.     Three  holes  were  put down,  two of which   were  deep, and perfect records were kept of  the geology .and values as shown by  the cores.    The charts upon which the  records  were kept are models of neatness,    thoroughness  and engineering  skill,  and no  information   which the  drill  could give   was   omitted  to   be  noted,  for  Mr.  Beam in  addition   to  knowing  himself how to go about it,  is remarkable for his success in choosing his men, and he found in Mr. Prior  a very capable man whose work would  be hard to beat.  When asked about his plans for  next year Mr. Beam would not state  very definitely and the inference is  that it will depend largely upon the  reasonableness or otherwise of the  owners of the property. If they had  shirked any of the obligations as to  work which they undertook under the  bonds there might be reason for refusing extension of time for payments,  (if such be asked) but when they have  expended about $40,000 in the one season without reaching the goal they  were in quest of and are still willing to  spend further time <*tnd money to prove  the truth or otherwise of the belief  they had when the bonds were taken,  it would seem an unwise thing to insist that they make any substantial  cash payment to secure the privilege  of expending $59,000 more on the mere  chance of catching an ore body of  sufficient extent to justify the expense  of opening it up. .���������;...���������������������������������������������.  Fortunately Mr. Beam is no pessimist and it is pleasing to note that he  is free to admit they found nothing in  the holes that weze-put down to disturb their belief in the possibility of  the ore still being encountered, even  if they are disappointed in not finding  it with the extensive expenditure that  has already been made. If he were a  pessimist it is a very sure thing that  there would have been a different tale  to tell in Hedley to-day, audit was a  fortunate thing that he was first induced to give his attention to the  camp four years ago. That he may  conic back in the spring and resume  operations is the wish of all who have  the interest of the camp at heart.  Only    Eight   Miles    Not   Now   Under  Construction   :1������>  Work is in pi ogress now on the K.  V. R. line for a distance of about 19  miles from Hope, starting from, McDonald's ranch. From the summit  the work is opened for seven miles.  The unbroken gap between is eight  miles in length. This gap, Superintendent Tinkler states, will riot be  touched until the spring. Throughout  the winter the work at the two ends  will be separate but at both progress  will be made as fast as possible.  Mr. Tinkler also states that in spite  of initial delay the work^has been got  under way even faster than the company expected.  The hospital at Five Mile will soon  he completed. It has" been built substantially and will be thoroughly modern in arrangement and equipment.  It has been found that from a few  miles out the work of construction  is almost uniform and the rate of  progress can be estimated pretty accurately. The progress made in clearing has been particularly rapid, and  grading has begun over half the distance.    West Yale Reveiw,  GRAFTER FOUND OUT  Frank    Pedley   of   Indian   Department  Trafficking in Indian Lands.  TO MAKE ACT WORKABLE  Ottawa, Oct. 13.���������As a result of  inquiry of Mr.T. R. Ferguson, K.  into the alienation of the public  main under the Laurier regime,  the  C,  do-  Mr.  A LUCKY TURN DOWN  \;  What Canada Benefits Under New U. S:  Tariff By Rejecting Reciprocity  If Canada desires free trade in wheat  and flour she can have it; This country can have also free trade in fruits,  vegetables, cattle, lu'niber and some  other things. We can select from the  list such articles as we chose. We can  make them free in Canada when we  like and for so long as we wish. If  any remissions of taxation do not  work well the duty can be restored.  The. people of Canada retain absolute  control over their .own. tariff and are  compromised by no reciprocity agreement. The situation is highly satisfactory inasmuch as there is no coercion, no surrender of control, and no  cause of friction. Never since Confederation have tlie Canadian people  done a better thing than when they  killed the reciprocity treaty.���������-News -  Advertiser.  Frank Pedley, who has been superintendent of Indian affairs since 1902,  has handed in his resignation. His  resignation was at once accepted, and  Mr. JDimcam Campbell Scott, the well  known Canadian poet, who has been  connected with the depattment for  years and has a splendid record both  for integrity and ability, has been appointed in his place.  As a result of the revelations of Mr.  Ferguson, it is expected that there  will be several other resignations and  possibly some prosecutions.  Mr. Pedley was appointed by the  Liberal Government in 1897 as superintendent of immigration, and was  transferee! to the Indian department  in 1902,  The evidence, taken before Mr. Ferguson alleged that Mr. Pedley, while  in the immigration department, and,  later, as head of the Indian branch,,  trafficked on Indian lands, and in one  transaction alone, with two other associates, made no less than $80,000.  This report of Mr. Ferguson, which  has resulted in tho resignation of Mr.  Pea'ey, is but a preliminary one, and  it is expected that there will be still  further startling revelations before he  finishes his inquiry.

Wilson to Madame Pankhurst  The United States has allowed  Bmrneiline Pankhurst to land in that  country after all.  Doubt was entertained as to whether the offences committed by her in  England against law and order were  political offences or common criminal-,  ity involving moral turpitude. And  in view of the leniency that has been  extended to her in England the president was averse to giving her any  claims to maytyrdom so far as the  United States was concerned.  He therefore decided, that she be  allowed to enter the country and deliver her lectures but to leave as soon  as her lecture engagement was completed.  There is an officer in  the  United  .States  immigration   department located at Oroville who is the limit for  senseless   officiousness.      Last   week  Miss Mackenzie of Keremeos, a trained nurse and   sister, of Rev.  G.   T.  Mackenzie,   had   occasion    to go    to  Oroville and took with her a girl of 14  or 15, daughter of Mr. and  Mrs.   Fred  Gibson.    When they reached Oroville  they were pounced on by thiV immigration official who had all  manner of  impertinent questions to ask (some of  them ,even indecent)  and    when   he  found out that the little girl was not  in charge either of parent or guardian,  insisted  on  taking  her   away   from  Miss   Mackenzie.    He   continued   to  follow them around and  annoy  them  most of the next day.   Fussy   half-  baked regulations are bad enough at  any time but when played in the hands  of a fool official who has not sense  enough to try to. ascertain  the intent  of the law and use some discretion, it  is a condition of affairs that the public  should not be required to put up with,  and this instance is about one of  the  rankest we have ever heard of.  MINING NOTES  It would look as if the Nighthawk  mine is being abandoned by the  owners. The Oroville Gazette tells of  the sale of the assay office and other-  loose property which has been disposed of and is being removed.  Under the management of Alex.  Robinson the Sally mine near Beaver-  dell has nine men at work. This force  will be increased in a short tune. A  carload of second-grade ore has been  shipped from the Sally and Bell to the  Trail smelter. There are a score of  properties around Bea verdell aud  Carini that would pay one to two  thousand dollars a month if the owners  had money and energy to make them  producers. ���������Ledge.  Mr. I. L. Merrill, president of the  Hedley Gold Mining Co., went out  again on Saturday last after five busy  days around the mine and works. So  much was his time taken up that he  was only able to take one round of  the.Hedley golf links. The mine was  carefully inspected the first day after  his arrival and the various power sites  on the Similanieen river were, given  considerable attention. His trip to  the Biitish Isles in the early summer  with Mrs. Merrill and party in which  he toured by auto 900 miles through  England and Scotland, playing twenty-  five golf matches on seventeen different courses afforded some rare enjoyment and he came back with a much  higher appreciation of Britain, her in-  .->tutious and the hospitality of her  people, than ever he had before He  thinks that' if-Britain and America  would each study the other more and  copy from each other in the things  that each is deficient it would do both  a good deal of good.  On his way home to Los Angeles he  intended to take in Victoria where he  had some departmental business to attend to, but possibly he might find  time while there to look up Mr. Hincks  and have a round of golf there in  memory of the time when they both  played on the Hedley links and things  were in more primitive shape than  they are now. '  Mr. Merrill was well-pleased with  the arrangement which had been  made in connection with the Hedley  golf links and gave some valuable suggestions for improvement of the  course. An instance illustrating his  fondness for the game is the fact that  the day before ho left New York for  Hedley was the first day of the  world's series in baseball, and having  to choose between the ball game and a  round of the links he chose the latter.  After three months of investigation  and cogitation in regard to the labor  trouples on Vancouver Island, Samuel  Price, K.C., of St. Thomas, law part-  net* of Hon. T. W. Crothers, Minister  of Labor, has presented his findings as  a Royal  Commissioner,   to Mr. Crothers. ,  Mr. Price recommends: (1) That the  meaning of "strike" be mote clearly  defined, as the miners at Nanahno  claimed simply to have gone on a holiday: (2) that agreement between employers and employees should have  the sanction of the law; (3) that a  change should be made in the present  law so as to prevent discrimination  against any employee who exercises  the right of joining a labor union; (4)  that it be made an offence to call a  man a "scab".  Mr. Pi ice confirms what has been  said for months past as to the cause  of the strike���������namely, that it was due  to the refusal of the mine operators to  grant recognition to the United Mine  Workers' Union. He finds that the  Minister of Labor, under all the circumstances, could not compel arbitration of the differences to induce either  side to recede. He says that Mr.  Ctothers strongly suggested, to the  operators that abritration proceedings  should be instituted, but that ic met  with no response.  Whether or not any legislation to  amend the Lemieux act along the lines  suggested hy Mr. Price will be introduced, is not stated Dy the Minister of  Labor.  THANKSGIVING   SERVICE  A special thanksgiving service will  ���������be held in the church on Sunday  evening next when special music will  be supplied. It will be the last Sunday here for Mr. and Mrs. L. K. Fair  who have done so much to improve  the musical part of the church services in Hedley. Rev. A. H. Cameron  will preach the thanksgiving service  and the order of the service will be a**  follows:  Organ Prelude.

A. H. Cameron united in  marriage Mr. John Wighton Grieve  of tho Nickel Plate and Miss Ellen  Dailey. The marriage ceremony was  held in the dining room of the Grand  Union Hotel and was witnessed by a  large company. The bridesmaid was  Miss Rutherford and Geo. Boxall of  the Nickel Plate mine acted as best  man. A number of handsome wedding  presents attested the popularity and  esteem in which the bride and groom  are held. A dance was given by their  friends in Fraternity hall in honor of  the event. The Gazette extends congratulations.  Jay P.  Graves    has   resigned  management of the Granby.  the  Consolidated  has recently de-  a dividend by which  they dis-  $110,000 fo shareholders.   " This  enables the Goldfields Syndicate to declare a dividend  of 14%  on its capital  stock.  The Jewel mine in the Boundary is  also a gold producer with no copper  output and pays the wage scale received by the mineis in the copper  camps. Both the Nickel Plate and the  Jewel were paying the advanced scale  last year and until the price of copper  took the slump last spring, when they'  reduced to be in line with the producers in the copper camps.  Oliver Durant who opened up the  Centre Star Mine in Rossland is now a  resident of Washington City.  In its annual report for the financial  year ending June 30th, 1918, the Granby Co. shows a surplus of $783,149.00  against a deficit of $17,000 for year  ending June 30th, 1912. The cost per  ton for operation has been the lowest  in the history of the mine.  The Ottawa mine at Slocan City  owned by the Consolidated Mining &  Smelting Co. is being worked.  Rossland Miners are being lectured  by a travelling delegate from Fernie  who says he is not canvassing for  financial assistance to strikers in Michigan but the object of his talks is then-  duty in that connection.  The Boundard District established a  new record. Last week thirty babies  were on exhibition as competitors for  the $20.00 gold prize.

Even Sir Wilfrid Laurier  ventured  tho gambler's  chance when  he  hinted   to the  electors  of Chatea-  guay  that  the existence, of a   slight  financial  stringency  was  due   to   the  fact  that  he-and   his colleagues  were  not on   the treasury  benches.     When  the  full  import of this  suggestion  is  examined  it was a rather bold compliment which Sir Wilfrid  was trying  to pay to himself.    Other countries as  well as  Canada are feeling, the effects  of the same money stringency and the  war   in   Europe  is   pretty   generally  credited   with   being   the   cause.     In  what way   then could Sir Wilfrid and  his  colleagues have  warded off   this,  world-wide  money  tightening,   when  he  was unable  to turn   aside a  worse  stringency  in   1907   at a time   when  there   was no  war in  progress  to disturb financial conditions ?     Farmers  in the province of Quebec who are getting top  notch prices for  the produce  of their farms  in  1913 with  a   very  passable, crop will be slow to hand out  to Sir Wilfrid  the compliment he was  fishing for.    There would be more reason   in   the   United  States  to  blame  Woodrow  Wilson  and  his  party for  the  same  depression   in   the   United  States for he  has interfered  with the  tariff, but  the tariff  under  which Sir  Wilfrid  wants the electors of Chatea-  guay to think that Canada is going to  the dogs  is  practically  the same   as  what it was when he left the treasury  benches, and so well was he  himself  satisfied with it that he maintained it  in force for fifteen years.    Sir Wilfrid  of  course forgot  to  tell   his  hearers  how  much  better off financially the  people of Canada are for having to  pay out to the Grand Trunk Pacific  that ten million dollars of hard-earned  money which Sir Wilfrid caused them  to part company with in order that he  might learn the meaning of the English word "implement" when used as a  verb instead of a noun.    A cheaper  and more effective way would have  been to have looked it up in any standard dictionary.  session was brought forward, will take  place in an Ontario constituency. The  field will be South Bruce and already  both parties are claiming victory and  with some degree of confidence. It is  a constituency that is pretty evenly  divided and lias the reputation of going more often against the government of the day than with them. In  the last two elections it has gone conservative. Both condiilates are rct-i-  dents of the constituency, that, of the  Liberals being a man who in former  days carried the riding and his voting  strength is to a considerable degree  known, while the Conservative candidate is a new man in 'politics although his father formerly represented it in the Conservative interests until his death. The present vacancy  was caused by the transfer of the sitting 'member to the Senate. This  move is declared to have been unpopular, and if mi, may effect the lesult.  The late member, J. J. Donnelly, was  in the prime of life and the popular  conception appears to deny the right  of the Senate Lo recmils of tha*; kind.  It is an illogical prejudice at best, for  it seems   inconsistent to  rail  at the  i  Senate as the refuge of political senility and at the same time blame the  government of the day when they appoint inen who are in the prime and  vigor of manhood and will help to  remove from the upper chamber the  stigma which, rightly or wrongly, at  present attaches to it. Another circumstance which lends an air of un-  ceitainty and is the feature upon  Which the Liberals base their strongest .ground for hope, is the fact that-  some of the townships in the riding  are almost exclusively German and to  these the appeal is being made which  was tried two vears ago by McTCenzie  King in Waterloo. If W. D. Cargill,  the Conseivative candidate, possesses  anything like the personal -magnetism  of his late father, it will be hard indeed to beat him even if his opponent  is a German and every German in the  riding is told'that Borden would tax  Canadians to build warships for Britain to ire in fighting the fatherland.

Forbes returned to Hedley on  Saturday, but he will take no long  trips through the.hills after deer this  season. The broken leg has made a  very satisfactory recovery considering  the seriousness'df the fracture.  - The Thanksgiving weather this year  was perfect and it was taken full advantage of by those who could get out.  Very few members of the golf club  who. were free failed to have one or  more rounds of the links, and the hills  were full of hunters.  . No chief.has yet been formally, elected to take the place of the late Charlie  Allison as official head of the Chii-ohu-  ivey-ha band of Indians adjoining  Hedley, but Charlie Squakim has been  officiating protein until a chief is  chosen a week or two hence.  On Thursday evening the play  "Scene in Union Depot" will be put on  in Fraternity hall in aid of the church  building fund. It is a comedy without  any plot but is held to be very amusing. Mr. L. K. Farr is stage director  aiid will also act as musical director in  the part of it that is -musical comedy.  Tickets will be on sale at the drugstore.  The force from the Golden Zone  came doivn on Sunday and went back  again on Tuesday morning with  another mine pump which they obtained from the Hedley Gold Mining Co., Since the recent snowfalls'  the mine has been making more water  than the pump up at the Golden Zone  was able to handle. During the uii-  wateriug Mr. Poirier has been utilizing the time for pretty thorough surface examination.  Mr. G. P. Jones, general superintendent of Hedley Gold Mining Co., accompanied Messrs. Merrill and Beam  to Victoria. They left Sacurday noon  for Penticton by the Company's auto  which wouUlreniain at. Penticton until Mr. Jones' return, which will be the  |,-end of this week, if no unforeseen delays occur. It is understood that the  mission tbey have in hand is that of  completion of departmental arrangements to permit the immediate prosecution of work for the installation of  the power plant on the Similkaineen  river.  The movinp- pictures during the past  two weeks have been particularly interesting. Considering the fact that  the management has not the opportunity of choosing the pictures but  must rely wholly upon what is sent  him, we have been very fortunate in  getting as good as we have had. Those  descriptive of industries and of current  events are the most desirable to the  majority and there have been more of  these of late. Dramatised presentations of popular tales are also very  good and there have been two notable  instances of these, where the actors  and actresses impersonating the characters were of more than ordinary  ability. There will not likely be more  than one or two more sets of films  presented in Fraternity Hall, as the  new theatre wiil be ready by. that  time.  The sympathy of all in Hedley is  extended to Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Schubert on the death of their boy Jimmy  who was so well known here. He was  a bright little Jail and a general favorite   and his death on Wednesday the  15th, caused by diphtheria,   will prove  a sore'" bereavement   to  his   parents.  Fuller  particulars vre to" be found  in  the following notice from the. Victoria  Colonist of the  17tli inst. which   says;  "jAIr. anil Mrs. J. A.' Schubert, of Tulameen. City, Siiniikameen district, are  mourning the loss of their boy Jimmy  who died last evening in tbe isolation  hospital, to which institution   he  was  removed 'a week  ago   suffering  with  diphtheria.   The.   boy, who  was  only  eight years old   was a bright lad, and  prior to the sickness   that resulted  in  his death    had   been   in  the   best of  health.      Last   July    Mrs.    Schubert  came to Victoria from Tulaineen  with  her children, the sea air and excellent  school advantages having induced her  to'decide to spend  the  winter  in   the  city.    For about two  months  .Jimmy  had been attending  a   private school,  until  illness 'came  on    and  laid  him  aside.    The   funeral   will   take   place  this morning, leaving the  hospital  at  at half past ten o'clock  for  the  cemetery   at   Itoss   Bay.   '  Mr.  and   Mrs.  Schubert will leave the city on Saturday morning fbrtheir home at Tulameen.    Mr.  Schubert  is  well   known  in the Similkaineen   and lower Okanagan,   having  been   engaged  in  business in those districts for many years.

THE HEDLEY GAZETTE.    OCT 23. 1913.  KEREMEOS, the Centre of Lower Similkameen���������- Famed for Fruit Growing  Town and Lower Valley.  Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Armstrong aie  expected in from the coast on Friday  this 21th.  The Woman's Institute will meet at  the home of Mrs. U. C. Clarke on  Thursday the 23vd of October.  Wallace Knowles of Hedley motored over last. Sunday. He was accompanied by Mrs. G. V. Jones and It. B.  .Wood.  Mrs. Mills and son, Alfie, arrived  home from Kamloops on Saturdny  al'tor spending a most pleasant holiday in that disttict.  J. J. .Armstrong shipped a car load  of apples to Winnipeg on the 20th.  He is shipping a car of mixed vegetables to Princeton the 2-llh.  The local Orange Lodge will hold a  turkey shoot in Keremeos in the  afternoon on November 5th and the  same evening they invite the public to  become their guests at a social. Everybody is invited to come and have a  good time.  Mr. A. .B. Campbell of Penticton  accompanied by W. Obrisliolm of the  same city, C H. Allen, of the Masonic  Insurance Co., Montreal, and H, C. N.  Etches, motored through to Princeton  on Friday staying at Hedley overnight on their return trip.  Mrs. James Innis accompanied by  her daughter hattie arrived home on  Sunday evening the 19th having spent  a most delightful visit at Winnipeg  with her daughter Susie and friends.  Saskatoon was next visited", here-they  spent a little over a month and after a  week's stay in Calgary they cams  right through. Both are the picture  of health and the trip shows it has  done thetiJ a great deal of good.  "The Willows" the home of Mrs.  Daly has been under the siege of the  directors for the past month but before the end of last week things were  once moie in peace and concert. A  most pleasing effect has been given  the whole of the interior. The drawing room is finished in gilt and cherry  and the hall is very nicely finished in  cherry. Mr. Jack way who has had  the work in hand is to be congratulated on the good work clone.  The Thanksgiving Day dinner given  by the Ladies' Aid in the town hall  was a great success especially along  the feed line. There was a large attendance. Many came from the lower-  valley and Olalla. A nice musical  programme was provided in which  Mrs. D. J. Innis, Mrs. W. M. Frith  and Miss Bromley favored, -.Readings  were given by Mrs. G.G. Keeler and  Miss Vader ancLwere very well received. . !  J. M. Young is doing splendid work  on  the  transprovincial road right-of-  way  which    will  be a  credit to   the  province.     There are  parts   between  here and Hedley  which are hard and  expensive to build  but it's no use putting a few dollars here and there on a  road   that's meant to be  a  road.     It  lias   taken  some time  maybe  but the  government    are    certainly     having  splendid roads built. There is no waste  of money  and things are  being done  on a solid foundation.    Some will kick  if they are   being   hanged; let  them  kick.     We have asked for good roads  and we are getting them.  Now   that the  packing school  is as-  . sured for in the near future all intending pupils should hand in their names  to  J. J.  Armstrong at  their earliest  convenience.    This year many will get  their diploma if they put in another  good session.   The class did splendid  work  last year and finished  up with  good points to their credit.    This year  on  account of  the way the pupils got  ahead it has not been found necessary  to  get in  outside  packers.     This is a  fine   thing  to know  that the  packers  have  been  educated up to first-class  packers   practically   right   at   home.  This   school   wili   put   the   finishing  touches on the pupils of previous years  and   enable   them   to  hold  their own  with  any of  the professional packers  in the country.  Once again British Columbia has  been awarded the gold medals. This  time it is at the Canadian Laud and  Apple show just, held in Winnipeg.  The ������plendid collection of B.C. apples  which won the gold medal was made  up from   the various orchard districts  eminent to get a display ready for the  exhibition. This they immediately  went to do aud with the help of Messrs.  George B. Clarke and IMattice Bros.,  and Mrs. II. Tweddle they were able  to get together as fine a display as  ever left this valley. Mrs. Tweddle  sent some line "Richter Banana", G.B-  Clarke a beautiful display of Jonathans, winter banana, pippin and  Stark's, and Mattice Bros, splendid  Spit/.enbergs, Jonathans and bell-  flowers.  When   the wise  men got going and  said "Skating Rink"  the people gathered  themselves   together   and   with  one  accord said  the rink  should   be  over on  the other side of the track in  the park.   Of course when we. mention  park   we do  not wish  the  gentiles to  think of   lovely   fountains   and   gold  fishes.    Oh  no.    Nevertheless  it will  be a park.     Now as Thanksgiving day  was not far off the heralds  went forth  with a proclamation  which read   that  every   able   bodied   specimen   of   the  male species  was to quit work and go  to work.     It was quite a conundrum,  but it meant that everybody over the  age  of five  years  was to   hie   himself  nigh unto the river and get busy with  a pick  and  shovel,   scraper or otherwise.     Thanksgiving day at rived the  camp  began   to  stir and  before noon  some  were  working but by one p. in.  all  were Jobnny   on   the  spot.     An  engineer crops   was appointed   these  levelled to within a quarter of an .inch.  It was a great treat to see  all working with  heart and  soul for  the good  of the cause.,   A well was started and  befoie five  p.m.   was down  over six  feet.   A team and scraper did splendid  woi k.     Everybody  was working  but  father and  there  were  two of them.  But as  they appeared  in   their  glad  rags they were warned not  to appear  so disguised again. Our Hedley friends  will   be glad  to  hear  that   the  boys  here,   as in   their own   town, have got  together and hope to have a good rink'  and  a good  time  on it and   hope  to  have hockey in  full swing this season.
