Bruce in Saturday Sunset  (Continued from last week.)  Here in brief is the ".story of Camp  Hedley. Notwithstanding the fact  that the peculiar formation at the  mouth of Twenty-Mile Canyon with  its emphatic evidences of mineral stain,  was plainly exposed to the view of  passers-by on the Dewdney trail from  the time the latter was, built till 1801,  it was not till that year that Charlie  Allison and James Riordan staked  three claims forex-Governor Dewdney.  Although the ground taken then occupied part of the Nickel Plate itself  and other rich ground, it was allowed  to lapse. In the same year Mr. Coult-  hart located ground on what is now  the Kingston also a very rich claim today, but he, like Hon. Edgar Dewdney  allowed the ground to become vacant.  In 1897 Peter Scott located the Hollo  and next year three more, and in the  same year two Swedes grub-staked by  W. Yolen Williams, located two  claims which were afterwards bought  by the Yale Mining Co. and now form  part of the Nickel Piate Mine.  In that year, 1898, Wollaston and  Arundel also staked the Horsefly, the  Nickel Plate, the Sunnyside and Cop-  perfield. Two months later and be-,  fore they had elone a single assessment, M. K. Rodgers saw a piece of  the ore at the coast. He had travelled  136,000 miles to find that kind of ore.  He had sampled 400 miles between  Guatemala and Alaska. When he saw  ore at Victoria he was then on his way  to Cassiar. But he came over to the  Similkameen, examined the property  and took samples which he had assay-  in Anaconda. The results were, he  thought, too good to be true. He suspected salting.  With his pack on his back he treked  from Anaconda back to Similkameen  and, all alone, made his way to the  Nickel Plate Mountain and re-sampled the property. The results were  uniform with the first tests and on behalf of himself and the late Marcus  Daly, he bonded the claims. Thus  without a cent of expense except the  staking and recording of their claims,  Wollaston and Arundel cleared up  $60,000 and the Similkameen became  the home of Britis Columbia's premier  gold mine.  UP AND DOWNS OF THE NICKEL PLATE.  Rodgers and Daly formed two companies,  the Yale Mining Co.  to work  the property and the Daly Reduction  Co. to treat ore.     Rodgers opened the  property and  built   the   mill.     Over  four years later Marcus   Daly  died.  Friction development between Rodgers  and the estate and  in the fall of 1905  Rodgers pulled out. Various managers  and  policies have since been  tried on  the    property.     None   have  proven  wholly satisfactory to the Daly people  although the  monthly dividend came  regularly.     The  last  manager  was a  pessimist.     He led the Daly people to  form  such  conclusions that they decided to sell out.   The sale settled all  outstanding differences between them  and   Rodgers   and   besides,   Rodgers  interests   were   confirmed.   The different managements   who   succeeded  him  were largely responsible for accentuating   those   differences.     They  belittled  both his work and  his opinions and theories.    Rodgers, although  largely interested, hael no voice in the  management.   There was trouble over  the allotment of his stock.   Finally he  secured an option  on  the; plant and  mill for $715,000. He interested powerful friends and practical mining men.  Among  them are forty-eight- men of  the United Slates Steel  Corporation,  I. L. Merrill, of Calumet and Arizona;  W. Fj. Cory, a Pittsburg steel millionaire; Norman B. Beam, a mining mag-  Continued on Pago Four.  Seattle, October 24���������The Great Northern Steamship Company's big Oriental liner Minnesota has established  some new wireless telegraph  records.  Word was received at the local office  of the United Wireless Telegraph company to-dav, that on the  trip just completed to Yokohama the  operator aboard the Minnesota was in  communication with the British cruiser Bedford, enrouteto. San .-Francisco,  when the boats were 3628 miles apart.  This beats all records for transmission  between boats at sea. As boats are unable to carry as powerful stations as  those on shore, this re;cord is considered remarkable by wireless engineers.  At the time this record was made  the Minnesota w.-'.s 600 miles off Cape  Flattery and the British cruiser was  one day out from Yokohama. Oh  this, same trip the Minnesota was in  communication with the Honolulu  station six nights in succession. For  three nights the,Minnesota's operator  was in communication with the Nome,  Alaska, station, and was able to get  all the news of events of the world  from that source.

MAY  HASTEN G. N. R.  Effect   Which   Government's  Policy May Have.  Railway  . Many who had given up hope of  grading operations oh the V. V. <fc B.  proceeding west of Princeton this  winter, are beginning to take heart  again. The reason they give is that  the completion of the coast connection  provided for in the government's railway policy will force the Great North  ern to build without- further delay.  Mr. Russell's party are still in the  hills, and if any move is to be made it  will likely take place inside the next  fortnight.  The relations between the Government and the Hill interests have been  most friendly in the past, and while  the delay on the part of the latter,  has beem irksome to us all it is known  that the good offices of Premier McBride were employed at different  times to obtain even as much progress  as has.been made.  The Great Northern at one time had  a long start on all others for this short  coast connection, but unfortunately  for themselves and every body else  they did not take advantage of it by  pushing through more vigorously  when the coast was clear.  A  LIBERAL'S   VIEW  Mr.  W.   A.   Galliher   Says   Province  Approves Railway Policy. ....  It did not come as much of a surprise last week when announcement  was made from Victoria that the  Legislature hael been dissolved and  writs were issued for a new election,  except that the date November 25th,  showed that the. campaign was to be a  short one.  The present Legislature had a right  to retain office until Feb. 2nd, 1911,  without going to the people, but  Premier McBride believing in. the  sovereign right of the people to say  how their business was to be conducted.decided that the people should be  consulted on the important question  of a railway policy before a single cent  ispaid out.    ..  He had entered iuto an agreement  which meant the building, of important lines eif railway to open up new  territory and to-conserve to:the people"  of British Columbia their own trade  insteael of allowing it to be diverted  into foreign channels, and he was determined to give the people the  earliest possible opportunity to ratify  or reject.  ���������The main features of his railway  policy embrace an agreement with  the C. N. R. to guarantee their bonds  to the extent of $35,000 per mile to  build from Yellowhead Pass down the  Thompson to Vancouver by way of  Kamloops and to subsidize the Kettle  Valley line to the extent of $5,000 per  mile to continue the Midway and  Vernon from Penticton on to Nicola,  thus giving the Kootenays, the Boundary and intermediate points a more  direct route to the coast.  It is a bold and comprehensive  scheme and is a decisive answer to the  taunts of his opponents who for the.  past six years have been calling for a  railway policy. AH the details Avhen  they become fully known may not be  to our liking, but it always takes two  to make a bargain, and it sometimes  takes more, and the spirit of compromise has to be exercised . to a certain extent, for others have rights as  well as ourselves.  At the fall session of the Assizes  held last week: in Vernon the Hedley  Labor Day hold-up was one of the  cases on the docket. A very strange  feature connected with it was that no  summonses were issued to several of  the witnesses in the case, and even  the constable did not receive notice  that it was coming off until Monday  forenoon, All the witnesses whom he  could procure went at his request and  not because of any summons from  the Court. It appears that the authorities at Kamloops were not counting  on it coming off at this session and at  the last moment the defendant's  counsel applied for immediate trial by  jury and was granted same, with the  result that no time was left to do anything but wire constable Sproule to  put in attendance and bring his witnesses.  Nevertheless the outcome of the  trial fully bore out the commitment.  The local witnesses who attended were  N. Pickard, Charlie 'Richter and a  railway employee named "Nicklin to  whom1 Gunn tried to sell the watch  and who described it so accurately as  to leave no doubt that it was Richter's.-,  watch' that .defendant was trying to  sell. The judge's charge ' to the jury-  left little doubt as to the verdict they  should bring in, and when they returned a verdict of guilty he explained  to the prisoner that the term of imprisonment for which he had rendered  himself liable was fourteen years. The  sentence awarded, however, was not  the full penalty, but three years.  The case against Marsh for being  accessory to the crime was also before  the Grand Jury but did not come before the Judge the case being laid over  until next assizes., From this it is  evident that the evidence upon which  he was committed must have been,  sufficiently strong to justify the course  that had been taken. The period of  imprisonment which he will have put  in before his case can come up again  will no doubt, be taken into consideration and the evidence to convict him  will have to be that much the  stronger.  MAY CALL IT GALLERY PLAY  The Resignations of the Ministers Instead  of Acting Adversely seems to be  Boost for Premier.  Ottawa,   October   21.���������The    "Free  Press" (Liberal) prints an   interview  with Mr.  William Galliher,  ex-M. P..  in   which   he   states:  "The   general  opinion  out in   British   Columbia   is  that we cannot have to many railways  to open  up the country,  and  I think  that Premier McBride's   policy   concerning the Canadian Northern will be  acceptable to the Province.  McBriele's  election announcement was not altogether   unexpected,"   continued   Mr.  Galliher.    "The entire   Province  has  been    expecting   it  for   some   time.  What  the   Premier i.s   going   to do  about Provincial   timber   limits still  remains to be  seen.    He has had a  Commission  enquiring into the question for some time.   If,  as a- result of  this, the lumbermen  of the Province  support him in  this ejection,  he will  have a very strong following.   In any  event, of course,  it is practically certain that  he will go back with a good  majority."  MR.

Nelson News  VICTORIA, Oct. 23.��������� Price Ellison  of Vernon, who represented Okanagan  in the last legislature, has been invited by Premier McBride to take the  portfolio of lands in the provincial  government and has accepted. Mr.  Ellison arrived this afternoon from  the mainland and after a conference  with the premier the suggested appointment was submitted to the lieutenant governor, who signified his approval.  Mr. Ellison is a rancher and fanner  of the Okanagan district and was the  first to advocate the government adopting an active irrigation policy. The  irrigation bill was introduced last session and the policy will be actively  prosecuted under the direction of Hon.  Price Ellison.  VICTORIA, Oct. 23.-."I am convinced that the railway policy enunciated by Hon. Richard McBride is the  most important forward move and the  best ever made* in the history of the  province," remarked Mr. Ellison when  seen by the Daily News correspondent  after the announcement of his appointment.  "It has been received in Okanagan  and upon the mainland generally with  the greatest enthusiasm, and it is felt  that the progress of British Columbia  will be immensely accelerated by its  adoption  When cabinet resignations take  place on the eve of an election because  of difference of opinion in policy, the  opposition are wont to take heart and  point to the circumstance as evidence  of disintegrating forces at work.  In the case of the most recent occurrence at Victoria, the congratulatory telegrams received by the Premier  from fill over the province, both on his  railway policy, and on his dignified  yet decisive action in the matter of  his colleagues' resignations lent a  sufficient amount of the dramatic*  element to the situation to catcli the  popular fancy. So much so i.s this becoming, that it will be strange if we  are not told from some quarter that  the whole tiling had been pre-arranged  as gallery play.  "I have always been a profound admirer of the Hon. Richard McBride and  a firm believer in his politics. The  position of the province as contrasted  with its former condition financial!}'  and in every other way is the strongest tribute to his wise and progressive  administration. I cannot express my  pride and pleasure at entering his  cabinet. I am one. wi h him in his policy of preserving the land for the settler and the conservation of the natural resources of British Columbia for  its present inhabitants and for posterity.  "I  am certain  the  people  will endorse the government's railway policy,  the forerunner of a renewed era of  TYieVagreonTentYs^ert^ greater by far than the un-  ratih'cation by the people of British  Columbia as a whole and Premier McBride will be returned with a majority  larger than the one he had at the last  legislature.  precedented growth and advancement  British Columbia has enjoyed during,  the seven years of the administration,  of Premier McBride."

CABINET RESIGNATIONS  The resignations of Messrs.  Tatlow and Fulton from the  provincial cabinet came as  somewhat of a surprise to tlie  people of the Interior, although  many of their friends on the  coast who knew their personal  views were prepared for it. The  reason given by the ex-ministers was lack of accord with the  Premier's railway policy, and  the promptness with which the  resignations were accepted was  evidence that the Premier rules.  As already pointed out in coast  papers the resigning ministers  appear to be as much out of accord with each other as they  are with the Premier and hence  their stand is a trifle illogical  to say tho least. Both ministers have assured the Premier  that on all other questions they  are completely in accord with  him. Although not candidates  in the coining election they will  work for the return of government candidates in their respective constituences.  Of course    there    are    often  wheels within wheels and sometimes public men  have  to give  out reasons    for   doing  things  that  may   not always   be   the  real reasons.   Mr. Tatlow's reason is that he   thinks  the  Province under the new railway policy,   is    giving    more   than   it  should be asked  to give  to the  Canadian Northern, and yet all  the aid the Province is  to  give  to the C. N. R. is to  lend   their  credit to tlie extent  of guaranteeing   the   interest   on    their  bonds.   It is one   of  tlie  boasts  of D. I). Mann that no  government that has ever given a like  guarantee has been called on to  pay a cent of such interest. The  Province    had    practically    no  credit of its own   to lend  when  McBride   took    office.      Messrs  Tatlow aud Pulton, on the other  banc! are very friemdly to the C  P. R.     Can it be that   they  are  dissatisiied    that   the    Premier  should   coquette   with    a   rival  line?  Tatlow   has   rendered    good  service to the   Province  by   his  Continued from Paso One  nate, accounted one of the .shrewdest  men in the business; V. H. Broughton  of New York; Geo. K. Tener, George  'T. Henry, John G. Oliver, W. P.  Snyder, Pittsburg; T. F. Cole, Chester  A. Congclon of the Northwestern  States. These men spent $50,000 in  testing, sampling and assaying the  property. Never was a mine subject  to such rigid, cold-nosed examination.  All over the mine, at all the workings,  on the rocks of bare hillsides where  never before* a hammer was struck,  you may see the scars of the testing  pick and the number of the* test painted in big black figures. Over 500 of  such tests were made*. And' the property stood up to it. The option was  taken up. A new company was organized to be known as the Iledlay  Gold Mining Co. The Hedley Gold  Mining Co. has a capital of $150,000  shares, of which $120,000 shares are  outstanding and 30,000 are in the.  treasury. . Of the outstanding 120,000  shares, 21,400 were, paid to the vendors of the property, leaving 98,000 to  be divided among the exploration  syndicate.  Thus a verdict in favor of the permanence, the continued operation of  the Nickel Plate mine, the fact that  the pay ore is good for years to come  has been rendered by a .jury of the  most competent men in America who  have proven their faith in their own  .judgment by putting up a cool million.  This was done only after measuring  the ore in sight. It is estimated they  secured in their bargain $1,200,000  worth of ore in sight and all the plant  and eciuipment of the mine and reduction works, the whole being a mine  which in five years netted its former  owners $900,000 profit.  Already the townspeople of Hedley  declare there is a different feeling in  the: air. There is a feeling of ex  pectancy of bigger things. In talking  to Mr. Beam and Mr. G. P. Jones,  who has full charge of the mill and  mine, although no direct statement i.s  made, the fact becomes apparent that  enlargement, expansion and an aggressive policy are to be adopted. It  is reported on good authority that  the stamp capacity is to be increased,  probably, doubled. Big plans for increased . capacity of tramway are  under way. New mine surveys for  development on a greater scale*, than  even- are being planned. The future  is full of promise. The men are optimistic, enthusiastic and full of vim  and enterprise. You see it on every  hand as you go over the works.

For the "past t\vo weeks the Hedley  Gold Mini tig Go. 's teams have; been  grading out a new tailings pond in the  garden alongside the stable. Evidently neither esthetic tendencies nor the  lure of horticultural profits can induce  the new company'to allow those tailings to go down the' river any longer.  Messrs Brass and Boeing'are "putting  lip a new building for Mrs. Saunders  on the lots which she recently bought  from Mike Mahoney, of Oroville, on  the north side of Haynes St., to the  east of the Grand Union Hotel. Mrs.  Saunders is working up a good laundry trade and is providing herself with  suitable accommodation.  Thanksgiving Day .this year was  marked with King's weather. It passed off very quietly in town. Nearly  all places of business were closed, but  the day seems to have lost very much  of its old holiday character. The  practice of shifting the date about  tends to takeaway a little of the1 interest that generally goe������s with a fixed  holiday.  Work started on Monday morning  on the "grading of the new station  grounds on Smelter flat. About fifteen teams and thirty men will be employed on it for three weeks, for in addition to 16velling off the station  grounds there will be the spur to grade  to the stamp mill. The grading force  are camped at the saw mill, and are  using some of the mill buildings.  A shooting match for geese was  held on Thanksgiving Day on the base  ball ground, at which good sport is  reported. The geese were owned by  King <fc Co., who put them up for competition. L. C. Rolls was successful in  winning the greatest number, getting  four. The rest were pretty evenly  distributed among the other competitors in ones and twos.  The first car load of coal for the  IT. G. M. Co. came down from Princeton last week from the coal pits of the  Vermillion Forks Mining Co., and is  to be followed by another in a few  days more. A test is to be given the  coal with a view to finding out not  only its steam producing power, but  also the form of boiler best adapted to  burning it, aud if the boilers now in  use are not suitable, it is possible that  they may be replaced with others better adapted. The convenience of the  coal supply is ajipreciated by the  II. G. M. Co., and they are anxious to  avail themselves of it.  will thiow oil" hi*-coat  those ii ligation ditches while a lecs  piactieal man is diving into musty  tomes to find out how much aqua puia  the Egyptian women used to carry in  their water pitchers, befoie preparing  an estimate or getting the Watei Act  on a pioper working basis.

He is  looking reasonably fitfor one who has  come  through  the seige  that he has  had. but nevertheless  it is fortunate  that the season  of the year will  be  more  favorable   for   campaigning   in  this  election  than  in   the last.    The  Government's railway policy  on   the  whole   looks   good   to   him,   and   he  thinks that when  fuller   details   are  known,  it will all look  better.   The  relief to  be granted  the  eastern  portion of his riding by completion of the  Midway and ���������*Vernon thi-ough to Penticton.   is  particularly   gratifying   to  him and knowing the Premier's views  regarding  the coast connection he is  satisfied that the very  best possible  has been done to secure the object  that wre all have in view.

The grinding of the glaciers and the erosion of these turbulent  streams bring down rocks, cand and gravel from the mountain depths  and fastnesses where man has nevcryet penetrated.  In a region where ledges of Gold-bearing Quartz 'arc a prominent  feature in the formation, it is natural that these forces of Nature should  tear away quantities of exceedingly rich material.  This process has been going on f������r aSC3- The hidden stores of  Gold away in  the lulls are inexhaustible.  The rush of the torrents is to impetuous that even boulders of  considerable size are borne in their course, and only when Nature  has spent herself do they find a resting place.  The broad creeks���������the wider reaches of the river���������quiet the  stream, and the Gold, in the form of nuggets, grains and flakes,  rapidly settles. Gold is very heavy���������heavier than the rock itself, and  once it finds a resting place, sifts down through the light surface mud  and sand until, by force of Gravity, it reaches bed rock.  Where the courses of streams have been changed, the richest Placer  Mines are found in their old beds. But in the larger, constant streams,  these rich deposits are beyond the reach of merely human agencies.  It remains for the Cold Dredge���������following the heavy nuggets  and particles of Gold down through the overlying strata in the bars  and benches of I he river, to recover these stores of Gold from the  treasure-house of Nature.  The long arms of the Dredge, with their endless chains of bucket  ccoops, search clown, down���������through sixty feet of water, sand and  gravel, i; need be���������until the Gold sediment, and finally bed rock itself,  often overlaid with an ac'ui! coverlet of pu.-e Gold���������the hoarded  accumulation of centuries���������is reached. k-  The Gold D:e.!r:c brings u;j this material i.i wholesale quantities  ���������treats it with scientific accuracy to save the finest particles of  value���������separates the Jross���������and for the first time lays bare to the hand  o:   man  this Virgin Gold.  While personally present on o::r property at Stewart River,  Yukon Territory, Klondike, September let, I saw with my own  eyes a c!ean-up from our first and smaller dredge, netting $517.50,  and this was preceded only a few dayg hy another clean-up from  the same dredge amounting to $1283.86 in Gold. I saw this Gold,  gathered from the gold-saving tables of our Dredge, moulded into  bullion���������a solid bar of Gold.  With such results in sight, we are bending cvory effort to get twenty  of these mammoth Dredges at work on our property. This summer,  our second dredge went on���������larger and stronger than the first���������and is  already at work.  ���������We control by direct lease from the Canadian Government, One  Hundred and Five (105) miles of Dredgable Grave! on the Stewart  .River, eighty miles from Dawson City, in the Klondike. We have  tested the gravel thoroughly with Drills, and it has been proven rich  throughout. As a matter of fact, the site of our holdings was recognized,  even before the Gold Rush in 189S, to be rich in Gold���������it is a  matter of public record that the Gold is there���������b-.:t solocated as to be  difficult to obtain by any hand method.

The* Land Leeches Are Worse Than th��
Snakes or Mosquitoes.
It is nearly always the case that exceedingly beautiful countries are overrun by different kinds of pests. Beautiful Ceylon has mosquitoes said to be
the most adroit and audacious in the
world and suakes and a thousand more
plagues of poor human beings, but the
worst of them all is a species of leech.
The Ceylon land leech is a thin creature about two inches long and very
nimble and flexible. It will crawl up a
man's leg and, traveling underneath
the clothing, will climb as high as the
throat. These leeches do not crawl like
the leeches that are known to medicine, but rear themselves up on their
tails to watch for prey and -walk off to
attack it with amazing rapidity. In
walking through the jungle hosts of
them may be seen by the. roadside,
where they wait to victimize cattle.
Horses, it is said, are driven half wild
by them, as also arc palanquin bearei-9
and coolies,- whose bare legs are their
favorite resort, tho men's hands being
too engaged to pull them off. The
leeches may be seen hanging round
their ankles, from which tiny trickles
of blood run over the foot���London

A year' or two ago the son of a
prominent banker of Iowa undertook,
with all the brashness and confidence
of youth, the launching of a new morning paper in a town already well supplied with newspapers.
It was understood by his friends that
the young man had. in fact started hia
enterprise on "a shoestring"���a few
hundred dollars advanced by his father. So it was with much facetious-
ness that the youthful proprietor and
editor was approached from day to
day by the aforesaid friends. "So you
call yourself an editor!" exclaimed one
of them, with affected contempt
"Of course I do," returned the brash
young owner. "I'm the whole thing on
this paper. And I don't owe a cent
"Everybody knows," continued his
tormentor, "that you got $200 from
your father to start the thing."
"Sure!" said tho proprietor and editor. "Furthermore, the old man'a 8nb>

The Question With you is Money
'Where Shall I Invest To Make The Most Money"
Reflect on this: The people of British
Columbia are paying out a million dollai*s
every year for soap.
The demand tor Lighthouse Soap in
less than a year has outgrown the capacity of our factory, and we are compelled
to build a new one.
Foi this purpose, The Western Soap
Co., Ltd. has been incorporated with a
capital of $250,000.00, divided into 250,000
shares at $1.00 each, of which 100,000
shares are now being taken by the public
at par.
Whether You Have Huch Honey or
Little, the opportunity is equally good.
We issue shares in lots of not less than
50 and not more than 3000 to any one
person, and the terms of payment are,
25% on application, 25% on allotment, and
the balance in calls of not more than 25%
at any one time.
I���Everyone uses and has to u.^e soap.
2���Every additional person  who conies into
the country increases the demand,   the sales, the
3���Every year the value of your company
stocd, increases as the business grows.
���4���Every year you get a dividend���a cash return upon the money invested,

no other company can use���a process which enables the company to manufacture a. superior
soap at a lower cost, than its competitors.

our factory to supply.
First,, a'-most conservative)  annual return of
on your investment.
Second, where your interest in the exclusive

will increase the value of your stock several
