LEADER BORDEN'S IDEAL  The Opposition Leader Points Out the  Three Ways and For Himself     <  Chooses One  (Bruce in -Saturday Sunset)  In' its short  history of  barely ten  years Camp Hedley 1ms compassed the  romance, the doubts and fears of all  other gold camps. Also it has demem-  strated what many other gold camps  have failed to show, permanence,of its  ore deposits. Many a gold camp has  flared up on the horizon of speculation, blazed through a meteoric career  and dropped out of sight and existence  in half the time that Camp, Hedley  has been on the mining map. Not so  with Hedley. Today its future is  more rosy, its prospects more solidly  based than it was when M. K. Rodgers  bonded two claims on the Nickel Plate  Mountain in 1898 and commenced ele-  velopment operations.  Curiously enough  while gold is the  constant theme of conversation; while  gold mining is the  basis of the material prosperity and happiness of the  population, while you hear of gold on  every side, you rarely see the.metal in  its natural, state in the town/   The  richest rock that conies down the hill  in specimens rarely shows more than  the tiniest yellow glint of the metal j  that lures   men to   the  furthermost  limits of the world's wild places.    You  go through the great stamp mill on  the hillside above the  town,  you see  huge   vats   eif   powdered    ore   being  "cyanided," yon go to the places where  the ground up rock  is   carried  over  mercury coateel sheets   of copper in  which the free gold  is   caught,  you  travel up to the tipple where the rock  is dunipeel ready to be hammereel to  powder 'and you   examine   the- rock  ever so closely, yet gold you will not  see.   But it is  there.    We know it is  because it   is  gold   that .makes"' the  wheels go round, it is gold in the rock  and  passing   through the   mill   that  makes the existence of Camp Hedley  possible.    It is gold that has yielded  from the Nickel Plate Mountain two  and a half  millions in  bullion in; five  years, it is gold that keeps hundreds  of men in the hills  prospecting new  properties,   developing    new   mines-,  tearing  into the heart of the hills and  blasting out the rock-locked riches of  the mountain.  Halifax, October 14. ��������� Mr. R. L.  Borden delivered an important speech  at the Halifax Convention dealing  with Naval defence, and "announcing  that a National Conservative Convention would lie held in 1910.  He began   by saying  that to one returning from the Mother County, the  question     naturally    piesonts    itself.  How  shall   we   stand   in   the" future  within  this Empire?    "Shall we," he  continued, "as Mr. Gold win Smith declares and predicts,   become   part of  the great American Republic,  or shall  we   follow   the    aspirations   of    Sir  Wilfrid  Laurier,   who   believes   that  Canada will sever her connect inn with  the British Empire,  as a ripe apple  drops  from  the  tree ?     Or shall   we  follow  the ideal of Sir John A.  Mac-  donald,   who foresaw  and pi-edicted a  cordial and healthy alliance with the  Mother Country,   by   which  Canada  would become a powerful nation, owing allegiance  to  the  British  Sovereign and Flag,  and  maintaining  the  advantage   eif   ceuihectioii - with  the  greatest Empire in the wen Id ?  Surely  it is   the latter  ideal   which   to-day is  huing realized,  and with it may there  come to  our people an increasing appreciation of the  VALUE OF BRITISH CITINISN'SHIP  The House of Commons last session  laiel down a certain policy touching  Naval defence in which .both political  parties were united. - It may not. have'  satisfied the aspirations   eif all Conservatives,  but.it seems our bounden  ,'duty  to  place, if possible, above the,  limits  of partisan strife questions of  vital and far-reaching effect, anel to  reach; the   standard   which   has  for  many years governed  both   political  parties in Great Britain with respect  to foreign relations.   How the present  Administration will  work out the policy which  was outlined by the resolution to which I havo alludeclremaius  to be seen.    One governing principle  at least should control, namely,  that  out of our own materials, by our own  labor and by the instructed skill of  our own people, any  necessary provision for our Naval defence should  be made so far as  may be reasonably  possibly. ���������        : t.  OROVILLE-BREWSTER  EXTENSION  The Outfits on Hand���������Signs That Work  is to be Pushed Vigorously  ON THE GOLF LINKS  (Oroville Gazette)  It is no  longer to he, but is.    Work  on   the.   Oroville-Brewster   extension  from this end can be set down as an  actuality.  There is no longer room for  supposition ;*s to the time of doing, the  thing  is in   the state of  being  done.  The start  that is to lead to the turning of the soil was made Monday. The  shovel   brigade is  not earning its so  much  per  by the sweat of the  brow,  but the  weapons of offense are being-  concentrated,   and   the   engineers are  making the necessary preparations for  the  graders to follow. ' The  body of  surveyors that has been accumulating  here for some time got out in the open  in   charge  of Engineer Andrews  the  first of  the week.    Cross-sectioning is  in   progress,  and   the route  is   being  dotted with stakes containing the code  of  heiroglyphie-.s  that caii only be un-  derstooil   by   the   road   builders.     A  steam shovel and several cars loaded  with small gravel cars and diminutive  engines  that pull the midget cars, arrived Saturday anel every day adds to  the    paraphernalia.     A    commissary  building has been erected on the south  side of the railroad track, just east of  the depot, which will also be occupied  by the clerical force. This is the status  of the case up to date, with a keen expectancy prevailing, as to  the speedy  arrival of   the   muscular  contingent  that is to put the roael in shape for the  iron. The gang will be trailing in soon,  possibly  the advance  guarel   getting  here  before this issue is distributed;  while the outlook is so satisfactory at.  ���������this end,   material and tools are arriving at Brewster,  via the- river route  from Wenatchee,  and the juggling of  the pick and shovel will no doubt begin about the same time at both ends  of the line.      .  Mr.  I.  L.  Merrill   Has Several  Games  With Local Players Aud  Gives  Valuable   Pointers  AIRSHIP'S  PLACE IN   WAR  Maxim  Gives    It   Minor   But  theless  Important Role.  Never-  PRINCETON COAL GETS TRIAL  Everything New and First-Class  Bar supplied with the Choicest  Liquors and Cigars, and Special  Attention   paid   to   the    Table.  HEDLEY'S BEAUTIFUL SITUjVTION  Camp Heelley is situated in a romantically beautiful pocket in the  hills. As if the mountain menaced the intrusion of men in a  jealous effort to guard their hidden'  treasures they line up in close formation where Twenty-Mile Creek pours  its troubled waters into the Similkameen.  As you ride down  the road   from  Princeton you are first apprised of the  existence of something unusual ahead  by a long band of yellow which climbs  in a straight line  to  the  top of the  mountain.   At first you think it may  be a slide, of which there are many in  these    mountain.     But   gradually  it  dawns  upon  you  that that streak is  too narrow, too straight, to have been  wrought by any force of nature. There  is a suggestion of economy, of purpose,  in   that straight   flung,   narrow   line  piercing the  forest and  gulches away  up   the steep side  of  the  mountain.  You suddenly realize  that it is   the  work of men and you marvel at their  daring.    That streak  seems to stand  on end  and to be a mile  high.    Later  you  may learn   that  it  is practically  both for it is the tramway down which  the ore of the Nickel  Plate travels to  the stamp  mill and from the mine to  the mill, a. surface distance of less than  two mill's,  it drops  nearly  ten thousand feet.  Continued on i'ase four.  The Hedley Gold Mining Co. Signify their  Intention of Giving- it a Good Test ���������  in the Boilers of Their Auxiliary  Steam   Plant  The main object of the visit last  week of Messrs Hickling and Waterman, of the Vermillion Forks Miming  Co. was to make arrangements for the  use of their coal at the H. G. -M. Co's.  plant at Hedley. We understand they  were well satisfied with the result of  their conference with Messrs Merrill  anel Beam and general superintendent  G. P. Jones.  As soon as the railway get the track  laid on the mine spur a car or two of  the coal will be shipped to Hedley and  given a fair test.  As both the Coal Co. and the Hedley Gold Mining Co. are anxious that  this coal should do the work, there  is good reason to assume that it will  do so, in which case the V. F. M. Co.  will have secured a gooel customer so  near home.  New York,  October 13,  ��������� Declaring   Napoleon's   dictum   as   to   God  fighting on the side with the. heaviest  artillery to  be entirely out of date,  Mr.  Hiram Maxim,  inventor  of  explosives and engines of war, predicted  in a public address to-night that God  hereafter would fight on the side with  the strongest  flying   machines,   and  most of them;  but the English had  little  to fear from the Germans   on  this   score,    he   said,   for  aeroplanes  crossing the Channel with explosives  coulel do little harm.     "Flying machines will never be able to work wide  destruction   by   dropping   explosives  from  the air, he said,   "War vessels  may have their superstructures slightly damaged or their decks bent by ex?  plosives dropped  upon them,  but in  order to elo   much damage dynamite  requires   confining.      The   aeroplane  will  be the strong arm of the signal  corps, each carrying two or three men  armed with raiders' outfits.   They will  be actualities in  the next great war,  and will he  widely effective in the destruction of bridges,   magazines and  storehouses."  Hedley  golfers added  materially to  both their interest in and knowledge of  the game from being favored   with a  few, games participated in by'Mr. I. L.  Merrill,   president of the Hedley Gold  .Mining.' Co.,   who   is   an   experienced  and enthusiastic golfer and   notwithstanding- his  protestations to the contrary, an  expert player.    Being a left  bander  he   was  paired  off   with    the-*  editor  who  up to   that time   was  the.,  lone left bander of the bunch, and the.  opponent's were Messrs MacHaffie and  Williams in a game of best ball "foursomes".    Only six   holes were  played. '  of which  the left-handers   won all except one hole which was  halved.    In  justice  to  Messrs   Williams and MacHaffie,  however,  it is only fair to.sn-y  that they did  not  play nearly  up to  their, average performance.     On   the  next occasion they elid better, the lefthanders,  on an eight-hole game, winning  by  only "one hole up" and  one  hole halved.  It-is  particularly gratifying  to  devotees of the game in  Hedley  to find  experienced players  from the outside  so   favorably    impressed     with     the  course here.    One  would expect  that  they would find it very slow aud crude  after coining off-courses on which over 7  $50,000 a year is spent for maintenance  alone,  to  say  nothing of  the  heavy  initial  cost,   but it appears   that even  to players  who havo  been used to the  best,   there   are   natiunl   advantages  about the course in Hedley that would  be difficult to 'imitate artificiallywith-  out enormous expenditures- of money.  All that, is required is to dress,up the  putting green?.  By way of commencement in this good work Mr.  Merrill  has kindly arranged with Mr..Williams  to put on a man for a couple  of days  to fix up two of the holes at his expense.   rWith this beginning the local  players should buckle in and by taking  these   two   as   a. model give all  the  others similar treatment, and   when  this is done we will  have golf links  that we need have  no  reason  to be  ashamed of.  THE   OCTOBER   ROD   AND   GUN  G. T. P. AND ORIENTAL LABOR  Note The  Difference  "The reason for the popularity of  the Mutual system of life insurance  over the stock system is plain.    Other  things being equal, applicants prefer a  company in which the insured get all  the profits and which they control to  one in which they get only part of the  profits and which is controlled by  stock-holders." So says Emory Me-  Clintock the most noted actuary  and life insurance expert in the United  States. Admitting therefore that a  mutual company is the best, and finding that the Mutual Life of Canada  had made* better showing on individual policies than other Mutual companies that operate in a less healthy  climate, and have not hael as en refill  management, why should anybody  place their insurance in any other?  Sir   Charles  Rivers   Wilson   Expreses  His Views  London,   October   13.���������Interviewed  to-day   by a. representative  of "Canada  Illustrated,"  Sir Charles   Rivers  Wilson, President of the Grand Trunk  Railway,  said  that,   in  regard to the  position at  the Prince  Rupert end of  the Grand Trunk Pacific,  everything  practically  hinged upon the supply of  labor.    Personally,   Sir Charles   said,  he had  never been   able to appreciate  the people of British Columbia in this  respect, as the early completion of the  road  meant much  to  that Province,  and  the   temporary   employment   of  three or four thousand Asiatics woulel  save three years.    Their introduction  would  not displace a single Canadian  workman,    as    when    their contracts  were ended  they  would be  taken to  the  Oriental  port   from   which  they  embarked.  On the eve of the big game hunting  season,  the October Number of Rod  aud Gun  in Canada,  published by.W.  J. Taylor, at Woodstock,  Ont., gives  foremost attention to big game hunting stories.   They will be found varied  enough in  both localities and experiences to interest all sportsmen,  and  many will doubtless recall incidents  in  their   own   careers   corresponding  with some related   in  such   pleasing-  fashion  in  these pages.   In  the same  way the article on "The Characteristics of a Fine Backwoods Guide," wilL  remind numerous readers of character  feature shown  by  their own guides,,  and revive many pleasant memories���������  a   rich   storehouse   of   which   is   the  property  of every sportsman.     Fish  culture in  jNew.fo midland will receive  attention  from every  brother of the  rod,    and   its   inclusion   shows   that  even  at such a   time the  interests of  the devotees of the fishing art are not  neglected.      Other   seasonable   piiges  are given,  making the   number one.  that should  be  the companion of every sportsman  either  at home  or on  his vacation,  giving him  many pleasant half hours in perusing what others  have eloue and enabling him to fight  some of his own battles o'er again.  Locals Continued  There is no expenditure a man can  make that will give him more comfort  and peace of mind than the. amount  necessary to build a chimney on his  dwelling or place of business. G. Mil-  burn, brick-layer and plasterer of  Keremeos, is making arrangements to  manufacture brick and build chimneys  for all who may require them. This  is an opportunity that house-holders,  should take advantage of.  A party of C. P. R. officials in bridging the interval  betwaen Midway and;  Penticton journeyed by private car to,  Keremeos  over the  V. V.  <fc E.   and:  drove  the shorter distance to Penticton having  the ear sent   back around..  They   gave out   in   Vancouver   that  their trip was merely  one  of  inspection.    All   the   track  inspection   they  would require   to do between Midway.  ! and  Keremeos  would not be- pa.r.t-icu-  j larly onerous.

Little   more   than   a   hundred  years ago its 2,500,000 acres consisted mainly of shifting  sands  and pestilential marshes.   "Now  the department is one of the  richest,   most   productive    and  healthful  in  the country,  and  the change   has    been    accomplished through the agency of  the pine forests  with which it  Avas planted.    These   are  now  of immense  extent and provide  material for the   many   industries connected Avith the  wood,  charcoal, resin  and  turpentine:  they yield.   The   climate, once  bleak is uoav described as mild  and balmy, and the  thin layer  of clay beloAV the sandy surface  once impervious to  water,  has  been so pierced"'arid loosened by  the roots of the trees that natural drainage is effected.  The forests are carefully  supervised and cropped according to strict rule. Trees destined to "short life" are "bled to  death" when thinning, out becomes necessary and pit props  find a ready sale in the English  market. The most vigorous of  the trees are allowed to groAV  until they are three feet or so  in circumference, and are then  lopped. When they attain 50  or 00 years of age they are cut  down arid used for telegraph  poles and railway ties. The  spread of lire is provided against  by limiting each forest to a  small area and protecting it by  Avide trenches, kept clear of inflammable material. Cultivated  in this Avay, the department of  the Landes is likely to maintain  its prosperous condition indefinitely.  do 48.28  do 20 ,'  elo -28.85;  do 38.56  THE MILL.

MacHaffie, Manager  "'"���������'������������������'���������I*  ������������������if  Lovers of J. M.

It is. true" the I granting  by the  Court of the divorce for  which he sued Avill   have  the  effect -of- lessening the degree  of   censure   Avhich   the   public  Avould   otherwise   have   meted  out to the novelist.    Nevertheless the circumstance is regret-  able   for   many   reasons.     His  Avife, the actress Mary Ansell is  mentioned   frequently by Ellen  'Terry in her aiitobiography recently published and the general  impression  existed   that   their  domestic relations were exceptionally happy.

In spite  of pessimistic "warning off" notes  soundeel in his hearing he. preferred to  take his own judgment backed by  that of others who should know, and  he had his associates take the bond  and proceeel with the examination.  For over three months Mr. Beam has  remained on the ground and it is a,  very safe guess to say that to-day he  is a particularly well pleased man.  During his stay he made warm friends  in Hedley who will always be pleaseel  to see him back.  Mrs. I. L. Merrill has been haying a  few rounds of the  Hedley golf links.  Having the advantage  of  au  experienced coach in Mr.  Merril},  she.is.,  able to put up a tidy gjune.   She has  also hael  the benefit of experience  on  a great many different courses, having,  played oh grounds as widely separated as those on the   cpast of Maine and  at   Los   Angelos,    California,   varied  with an  occasional chase/after "the  wee ua     over the alkaline ridges at.  El Pjiso, Texas.  Mr. L. W. Shatford, M. P. P., is expected back in the riding this week..  He was in Montreal on the tenth and  expected to spend a day or so in  Rochester on the way back to see the  specialist whose patient, he hael been  duriuar a few strenuous months, that  he might be given a final leipk over to  see that he was in ship-shape anel  ready for another tussle, for. "they do  be saying' that there is to be another  election soon. His friends will doubtless crack a few jokes with him on the  subject of the attempt to put him off  the voters' list of the. electoral district  that he represents.  Messrs E. Waterman and A. Hick-  ling, of the Vermillion Forks Mining  Co., Princeton, were in town on Friday last. When here Mr. Waterman  informed the Gazette that the V.F.M.  Co. expected in two months time to be  delivering coal in Hedley by the ear-  load, and while they hael not yet learned from the G. N. R. what the freight  rate woulel be to lay it down in Heelley  he didn't expect that the rate would  be too high to prevent them selling  lump coal delivered in Hedley at $5.00  per ton. That sounds a great deal  better than the olel figure of $13 per  ton which it cost to deliver it in  Hedley.  Mr. E. A. Holbrook, who for the  past three years]was superintendent of  the Daly Reeluction Company's mill  anel flume, terminated his engagement  at the end of last week and on Monday morning left for his home at  Fitchburg, Mass. On Saturday evening the members of Hedley Lodge  A. F. & A. M. assembled at the lodge  room and gave him a little farewell  supper at which he was presented with  a handsome tobacco pouch and pipe-  case charged with a battery of pipes.  Mr. Holbrook was a valued member of  Hedley lodge during his residence in  Hedley and he also took a lively interest in representing the town in athletic sports. His friends in Hedley wish  him all success wherever he may be.

Upon    your   ear   grows   the   sudden  rumble   of   a man-made   Niagara   of  sound.    You  feel  that presently you  ���������will  be  in . tho midst  of a scene   of  bustle,  lights and the works of men.  Hardly have you sensed that motion  when  you round  a   little   bluff   and  there below you flashes out the myriad  lights  of a, mountain mining   town.  In a few minutes you have dropped  clown from  the bench and crossed the  flat into Hedley Camp.  FOUR YEARS   OF CHANGE  There is a good deal of change in  Hedley since my last visit over four  years ago. Then it was a town in the  making. Buildings were going up  around stumps and boulders. Straining teams of horses and sweating men.  tcriled beneath the July sun, levelling  out streets so new the stranger could  not see where or whence they came  or went. The brash music of the dance  hall, the glare, of saloon lights, the  rush and whirl of a brand new mining  camp, was in the air. The feverish  hurry of men chasing the fugitive  dollar in a town whose future was an  unknown quantity and which might  cease to exist in the twinkling of a  town's eye, was the atmosphere I  found in Hedley a little over four  years ago.  But it is very different today. Not  many new buildings have been erected. But those which were being built  four years ago are settled down to the  humdrum use of every day life. The  town has found itself. There is an air  of establishment here to-day. The  stores carry big stocks of the sort of  goods that home-making folks who  expect to spend their days in one  place, would buy. The furniture stores  particularly indicate that fact. Homes  which fom years ago proclaimed their  brash newness���������and future doubts���������  have metamorphosed into neat villas  with hedges and lawns and a homely  cheerful accommodation to their surroundings as much as to say: "Our  occupants live here because they like  Hedley; they believe in its future and  they intend to stay."  The .Similkaineen Hotel, then a  whooperup, hail-fellow meeting place,  where the bar resounded with laughter  and ribald jokes of a floating, passing  throng, here to-day, gone to-morrow,  has now settled down to a staid commercial hotel where the traveller may  enjoy the quiet and comfort  inetiopo]ita.n hostelry.  On the streets men  who seem to belong to Hedley and to  whom Hedley belongs, and the air of  them seems to say the combination is  satisfactory.  (Continued N'ext Week.)

FRENCH  Secretary and flanager,  HEDLEY, BC  "What is one man's drink is another  man's poison" is an old truism  that  has been exemplified lately in Hedley  in an altogether  different connection  than that of eating or drinking. Some  of Hedley's  trap-shooters learning of  the success  which shooters had at the  coost with  anew kind of powder for  shot shells, known as "SchultzeCube",  tried some of it here and  put their  gun-barrels out of business as a result, the powder proving too strong,  or at all  events producing a shock to  the weapon that was  more than  it  could stand.    The   difference in  the  atmospheric pressure between the full  theoretical  15 lbs per square inch at  the coast and the rarified atmosphere  of   the   Similkameen  may   in   itself  account for the trouble,  but possibly  if the full truth  were known there is  another cause that might explain it  more correctly and that is  what was  known to old riflemen as the difference  between dry and moist fouling. Years  ago  when   the  old Martini  (Tommy's  "cross-eyed old bitch" immortalized by  Kipling) with its black powder used to  behave so differently on different days  according to the varying quantities of  water vapor in the air, it was apparent  that a different compound was formed  chemically as the product of the explosion.    To off-set the difficulty riflemen   resorted to  the use of   the old  Burns  barrel cooler which  made the  men  on the firing line at O. R. A. and  D. R. A. meets in Toronto and Ottawa  resemble a row of babies with nursing  bottles.    When the Schultze cube was  being used in  Hedley it was in the  middle of an  exceedingly warm dry  spe������ll and the introduction  of a little,  timely moisture  would in, all probability have saved the gun-barrels.  of  go  to and fro  A.
