WHEN WlMTINfi jVDVKRTLSKK.S 1T.I5ASK  JIlilNTlON   THIS I'AI'EK  Monetary Times  Little has been heard .is to the appointment of the proposed tarilf commission,- since the. hill was stopped by  the Senate. The matter will be raised  during an early session of parliament.  Several names have been suggested  regarding the personnel of the commission, but it is-fSafe to say that the  Dominion Government lias not yet  seriously considered this phase of the  question. No tariff board will be  S'itisfa'ctory to both Eastern anil  Western Canada unless a representative is appointed from each of those  broad divisions.  The manufacturers last year expressed their desire for the early appointment of a commission. This .action  was not taken, they stated, with a  view to obtaining a general revision  of the tarilf upwards, but with the  idea that the manufacturers had nothing to fear from a thorough investigation by such an independent tribunal  into the conditions of protection in  Canada. On the other hand, the manufacturers wore satisfied an investigation would establish that the progress  of the country could only lie maintained by the various interests, such as  agriculture, fishing, lumbering, mining, and manufacturing, being afforded adequate protection, thereby encouraging the investment of capital  and ensuring tlie employee a commensurate wage for his labor.  The United States bas in operation  a tariff board. It is entirely without  compulsory powers,-and depends for  the success of its investigations upon  the co-operation of the people in the  lines of "industry being investigated.  It cannot call hearings and force the  giving of testimony, nor can it demand the throwing open of the hooks  of corporations for investigation:- The.  experts of the board .in only request  that facilities he extended them.. The  board professes that it does not need  coercive powers. To judge from experience to date the work of the board  is welcomed hy manufacturers���������- at  least by United States manufacturers.  The scope and powers.of the proposed Canadian tariff'commission.' have  already be .in defined by Hun. W. T.  White, Minister of Finance, as follows:  1. To make, under the direction of  the Minister of Finance, in respect of  any goods produced in or imported  into Canada inquiry as to: (a) The  price and the cost of raw materials in  Canada and elsewhere, and the cost of  transportation thereof from the piace  of production to tho place of use or  consumption: (b) the cost of production in Canada and elsewhere : (c) the  cost of transportation from the place  of production to the place of use or  consumption, whether in Canada or  elsewhere: (d) the cost, efficiency and  conditions of labor in Canada and elsewhere : (e) tiie prices received hy producers, manufacturers, wholesale dealers, retailers and other distributors in  Canada and elsewhere; (f) all conditions and factors which effect or enter  into the cost of production and the  price to the consumers in Canada ; (g)  generally all the conditions affecting  production, manufacture cost and  price in Canada as compared with  other countries, and lo report to the  Minister.  2. To make inquiry into any other  matter upon which the minister desires information in relation to any  goods, which, if brought into Canada  or produced in Canada, are subject to  or exempt from duties of Customs,  and to report to the Minister.  0. To hold, when empowered by  the Governor-in-Council. an inquiry  under section twelve of the Customs  tarilf, J907, in the same manner as the  Judge of the Exchequer Court or any  other Judge therein referred to may  hold inquiry when so empowered.  4. To inquire into any other matter  or thing in relation to the trade or  commerce of Canada which the Gov-  ernor-in Council sees lit- to refer to the  commission for inquiry and report.  Tlie  commissioners  are to  Extensive Course of Mine Development  ^-Additions to Ppwer,Plant  During the visit to the. camp last  week of the President and Vice-president of the Hedley Gold Mining Co.  the affairs of the company were pretty  thoroughly gonein to and some important decisions us to future operations  were urrived at.

Its importance and the part it is to play in the  future working of the mine is evident  from the fact that it is to be of double  skip capacity with- man-way besides.  This incline will serve for the numerous new ore bodies located in the low'  levels and it may he .extended indefinitely to serve for futine discoveries of  other new ore bodies', the existence of;  of which is now practically a certainty,  Tn the matter of power the main  policy is yet under consideration and  advisement hut in the meantime the  immediate congestion or overstrain is'  to be eased by the addition of another  150 horse power boiler to the -battery  already in place.  MONK MAY LEAVE CABINET  Out of  Harmony with  Government  on  Part of Naval Policy  PENTICTON OUT FOR TRADE  THE DEMOCRATS  AND RECIPROCITY  Woodrow Wilson Makes Frank rAdmis-  '...' . sion���������Taft Was; Equally Frank      <  If Less Complimentary .       \  Gov. Woodrow. Wilson,, the Democratic candidate for the presidency,'of  the United States, -^peaking at- New,  Haven, Connecticut, on the!2Sth'of  September, said in regard to reciprocity:  "I was very much interested in some  of the reasons given by our friends  across the' Canadian border-'for'heing  very shy about the reciprocity agreements. They said. ; We are not sure  whither these agreements will lead;  and we don't care to associate too  closely, with the ccdmomie conditions of the United states until those  conditions are as modern as ours.'-'  "When I resented this and asked  for particulars I had to retire from the  debate, because I found that they had  adjusted their economic development  to conditions which we had not yet  found a way to meet in the United  States."  This is the Democratic pronouncement. It is hardly necessary to recall  President Taft's views, which were  published last April, when his historic  letter to Mr. Roosevelt was made public. In that document he said, speaking of reciprocity, that it would make  Canada an adjunct of the United  States, and added:  "It would transfer all their important business to Chicago and New  York, with their hank credits and  everything else, and it would increase  greatly the demand of Canada for our  manufactures. I see this is an argument against reciprocity made, in Canada, and I think it is a good one.'"  Ottawa, Oct. 17.���������That the resignation of Hon. F. D. Monk is now in the  hands of Premier Borden and that it  will shortly go into effect, is practically certain. The, probable early re  tirement of, the Minister of Public  Works has been the subject of much  speculation today in the Capital,and,  while thereiis a; general agreement to  the effect that he will cease,to he a  minister, there is nothing definite as  to just when the resignation will go  into effect.  , The reason for Mr. Monk's retire-  retirement from the Cabinet is that he  believes the government should submit its .-emergency naval proposals to  a plebescite of the Canadian people.  As the majority of the members of  the Cabinet are '''opposed to such a  proposal, Mr. Monk will seek retirement.  The general impression is that the  minister will not accept a place on the  bench, but'will retain his seat in parliament. Apart from his disagreement  with the majority of his colleagues on'  the navy question, it can be safely  stated that Mr. Monk'has never been  enamored with'his position as Minister  of Public AVorks. A man of fine  scholastic attainments and a student,  he has found the burden of- detail of  the Department of Public. Works a  wearisome .load which he will not be  sorry to lay down.  The Cabinet Council-met this afternoon and again tins evening but there  was no announcement as to- the date  of the opening of parliament.    :  People of Lake Town are Petitioning for  Completion of C.

In tho meantime, several industries,  notably the steel and woolen, are preparing important mutter for presentation to the new tariff authoritv.  Here is something that may be of  interest to dog owners- here. A recent  supreme court'decision outlines re-  sposibilities of owners of dogs. The  decision was a case where action had  been brought to recover damages  from the owner of a-dog that barked  and frightened the plaintiffs horse.  The plaintiff was thrown and injured,  and brought suit for .$1500 damages.  The jury gave him a. verdict for that  amount, and the owner of the dog appealed to the Supreme Court. The  Supreme Court sustained the verdict,  and said in strong words that the  owners ol' barking and vicious dogs  are responsible for all damages caused  by such dogs, and the owners keep  them at their own peril.

Penticton, B. 0. Oct. IS.���������At the  regular meeting of the Penticton  board of trade a letter was read froth  the secretary of the. Nelson hoard  stating that they had discussed the  question of the piobability of getting  the Canadian Pacific railway to undertake the early construction of the  ProctorKootenay Landing connection.  In view of the fact that it is .hero  understood that in consideration of  the Balfour   hotel being built the Nel-  *  son board of trade had foregone their  privilege of urging and practically  forcing tho immediate construction of  this portion of the line for three years.  E. W. Mutch was of the Opinion that  the matter should be taken up with  the Dominion government. He considered that the whole southern country was vitally interested in the building of this link in the new southern  main line, and that irrespective of any  agreement made with the Nelson  hoard of trade by the C. P. R. the immediate construction of the road  should be urged by tho government.  If was finally decided to await developments. Should the president of  the C. P. R. not make a favorable announcement on the occasion of his  trip through the Kootenay it is probable that the Penticton hoard will  petition the government -to take some  action in the matter and ask .the assistance of all boards of trade in southern British Columbia who may happen  to be interested.

What shall we  say of Sir Wilfrid Laurier in Canada  _for his real treason to the state in  .continuing to advocate a scheme  which President Taft said in a letter  to  Ex-president Roosevelt  ..would transfer all their (Canada's)  "important business to Chicago and  ������������������New York, with their bank credits  "and everything else, and  it  would  "increase .greatly    the  demand   of  "Canada for our manufactures.     I  "see  this  is  an  argument   against  ������������������reciprocity   made in Canada,  and I  "think it is a good one."  If it   is  treason   to   play   into   the.  hands of a foreign   state  against the  interests  of one's own   country, who  will deny   in the face of what Taft has  said     that   La.uiier    was    guilty    of  f reason in his advocacy of reciprocity  over a year ago?     But he is doubly so  now  in continuing it.     No one knows  better  than   Sir Wilfrid Laurier  that  he kept outside  manufacturers from  establishing works  in Canada  by his  free trade and unrestricted reciprocity  contentions   between   1878   and   180(5,  and it was not until in 1897 he adopted  the   protective,   policy    he    had   condemned all   those  years    that  manufacturers   in   the   United   States   who  wanted    the   Canadian   market     saw  Ihey had to move across the border, as  they had   no more  to   hope  from   tlie  Liberal   party    upon  whom  they depended    to  give  them   the Canadian  market.    He knows also that from the  day  lie  announced   in   the House of  Commons in  January   1011   his intention to introduce a hill   to give effect  to the bargain made by Fielding arid  Patterson, the movement of nianfac-  turers  from   the   United  States   into  Canada abruptly ceased until after the  conspiracy had been given  its quietus  on   September  21, 1911.     He   knows  why his supporter German of Welland  refused to follow hitn on his reciprocity scheme   and he has only to inquire  into the industrial history of the town  of Welland for five years prior to that  day in January 1911 and what it was  between that date and September 21,  J011.     Clearly his only object   must  now be to prevent any more manufacturers   from   coming   in   by  makiner  them think the Liberals  may get into  'British Columbia is coining in for a  good deal of eulogy these times on the  excellence of the roads she is building  and the Minister' of Public Works  seems to have made good his right to  the title "Good Roads Taylor". The  following portion of a.paragraph taken  from Editor Dallam's write up of.a  trip to Penticton in his paper, the  Oroville Gazette, will show how the  appearance of our roads struck the  editor from the south who has always  been noted for fairness and breadth  when .dealing' with matters either at  home oi-'abroad.    The Gazette says :  "Fuither it would be to the. everlasting advantage of the country as a-  whole if the commissioners and engineer would make a trip over the British Columbia roads, after bumping  the bumps on this side of the line, and  learn from these northern neighbors  how to make good roads. They sure  have tlie system down fine on the other side. The good road is not only a  joy to those who have occasion  through choice or necessity to use it  in travelling either on pleasure or  business, but it is an important con-  tiibut'or in adding value to property,  because any kind of property is more  desirable in a country of good roads  than in a country where the roads are  neglected. Possibly one of the reasons  for the settlement of the Penticton  country is the excellency of the roads  leading in and out of it.    *    * *    *  From here to Penticton the roads anas solid and smooth as wagon roads  can be made. There are.no ruts, or  washouts, and it -would be difficult to  find a stone larger than a marble in  the roadway, unless on some new section where crushed rock is being used  as a macadam. Of course the Canadians have more money to make roads  than the resident* of this country,  but when one looks back upon the  years and years during which vast  sums have been shamefully thrown  away in useless road making, it would  seem that even with tlie money <at  command' had it been applied intelligently by persons with a knowledge of  road making, something better in the  way of roads than what are now in  use would have resulted."  Without desire to butt in  we would  like, to offer a   few observations   by  way of explaining what we think are  some of the reasons why Editor Dallam  has found  things'as he has and has  had occasion in his fairness to give us  premier position   in the comparisons  he has made.    To our mind  the difference lies in the two systems and when  our neighbors have   to   complain  of  being compelled to bump over inferior  roads  they are  merely paying one of  the penalties  they must suffer for the  great liberty (so-called)   which   they  enjoy.     It is an old adage that "what  is everybody's   business   is   nobody's  business" and when,  as we are told,  the elective system   in  most   of the  states is carried to the extent of electing road supervisors and foremen the  average supervisor  whose one aim  is  to make himself popular enough to be.  elected is in a very poor position to do  the right thing  in the way of  road  building  even if  he should  happen to  know how. which   in nine cases out of  ten In* doesn't.    Here, however, in unorganized districts nlit under municipal control   the government builds the  roads and has to answer to the people  for the job they make ol it. The people-  on their part try to pick  out the best  men they can get to represent them in  parliament���������men   who are held to be  honest and who  have shown aptitude  in the conduct of their own business,  and when once they choose them  it is  results they want and not the right to  dabble, into or interfere with ways and  moans for securing the results.  The building of the roads in the  province is alloted to one member of  the cabinet, who in this case is the  Minister of Public Works, and he in  turn i.s held responsible by the Premier for results in the conduct of his  department. To produce these results  he must have capable men to do the  work required, and ho retains the ser  in* asks the representatives to share  with him by recommending a suitable  man. This man .must also produce  results and for that reason he is given  the choice and appointment of his own  foremen in the various localities of the  district instead, of having .the people  elect them for 'him. Thesi foremen  must carry out the. orders of the district supervisor who in turn consults  the departmental engineers. That in  biief is the system we work under.  Now the Similkameen electoral district in which Editor Dallam found  the roads which took his fancy, happens to have in Mr. Shatford a representative who is after results and at  every session of the Legislature he  sees that his district gets its share of  the money appropriation for- roads.

Mosby, secretary of the Gold  Plate Mines Co. operating the Golden  Zone, has spent the past week in Hedley arid at the mine.  The Vei lion News of twenty years  ago mentions Ii. L. Cawston among  the puiehasers of thoroughbred cattle  at Jas. T. Steel's sale in Vernon. "  The tote roads for the building of  the portion of the Kettle Valley east  of Penticton has given wagon road  coniniiinicaton between Kelowna and  Naramatta.  Harold Townsend was one of the  Similkaineen "'all stars" who played  lacrosse, at Penticton last Friday and  brought back the. scalps of the team  encountered over there.  Mr. and Mrs. Joyner let"t on Monday  for Seattle where they will spend the  winter. In the spring they expect to  go to California. E.

The. snowfall at the end of last week  tempted a nuinber of local hunters  into the hills but they say the deer ate  stillfar back in the mountains. S.-'E.  Hamilton got a. fine buck and J. T.  Naif jr got one a few days before.  ���������;A four-horse team has been busy  during the past week hauling piping  and supplies to the Golden Zone.  Work is in progress underground and  mosG of the surface has been completed. When the piping is in place they  will be ready to start the mill.  Hermann Zibler went out on Monday bound for the Old Men's Home at  Kamloops. For many years he would-  not consent to go but when he took  the notion at last he was very keen to  get oft' and was as impatient as a. child  to get on the way.       .  Alex Kellet is superintendent of  construction on the Pacific and Great  Eastern which Pat Welch and his  cpinpany: have the contract of buildings and he is how making arrangements for prosecution of the work in  the vicinity of Lillooet.  Monday next will be Thanksgiving  Day and by way of suggestion eran-.  berries are on display in the grocery  stores. It is persunied that the turkey  which .will'be necessary to complete  the combination is. being groomed  somewhere else even if he has managed to keep out of sight and will not  fail his part when the day comes  around.  river and,but for his presence of .hiind  and quick foot-work in dogding the  beast's rushes until he could make the  fetice, he would have, been killed.  There was a day in the'Siniilkaiiieen  when nothing was thought of animals  of that kind running at large but that  day is passed, The valley is now settled and the people have a. right to  claim some reasonable degree of immunity from risk of that sort.  Mr. I. L.   Merrill,  President of  the  Hedley Gold  Mining Co.,  Mr. W. B.  Dickson,      vice-president,     anil    Mr.  Carlton   Merrill,   the  president's   son,  went out again on Friday after spending about three days  at the mine, the  works and in the office.   During their  stayalso they made a trip a few miles  up,the  Similkameen to  look over tlie  situation    where  the   company   have  been contemplating^ the matter of developing some more 'power from tbe  Similkameen river and als������ went over  to where, diamond drill prospecting is  proceeding  under'the Windfall bond.  Their  time  being so  much  taken   up  the  president and  vice-president had.  little  opportunity for   anything   else  and even the golf links with the greens  retouched  was  unable  to  tempt Mr.  Merrill   to take an  afternoon   off for  his favorite diversion.    This was Mr.  Dickson's first trip  in here, and to see  more  of the  province lie went out by  "way of Penticton. He has spent many  years   oh  the   working  stall'   of   the.  American  Steel Trust, of which   he  is  the Vice-president   and  was   one   of  the  old guat-d   in the concern   in   the  days when old Anily.of Skibo was the  dominant spirit.     For Mr.   Carnegie  all the   veterans of  the  industry  still  retain   the  warmest  regard and   this  circumstance   possibly   explains   in  a.  great measure the enormous success  which attended the operations of that  industry.    It is to be hoped Mr. Dickson will  find time in the near future  for another visit to Hedley.  Mr. C. H. Brookes was asked the  other day as to present position of  matters in connection with the charge  of embezzlement preferred against  him from New York and showed the  editor a bunch of telegrams he had  sent the authorities in New York from  Hedley since the 10th of September.

Everybody who is interested, in winter sports is urgently  requested to attend in order that arrangements may be completed and  everything put in readiness to take  advantage of the first cold snap.  A wind from the south with its  steering gear headed up Twenty-mile  and the barometric pressure low gives  townspeople an opportunity to know  .something of the chemical products of  decomposition of the coal used in the  company's furnaces. A little experience of this is apt to make people  think that a smelter located on the  flat might not have proven the boon  that was expected of it and its failure  to connect may have been a blessing  in disguise after all.  Carl Hairsine, traveller for the  Western Canada Flour Mills Co.. came  in on Saturday and received the congratulations of his Hedley friends on  the auspicious event which occurred a  week ago in Vancouver when he joined the ranks of tbe benedicts. There  i.s no josh about it for he brought the  evidence along in the person of Mrs.  Hairsine herself and showed bet the  beauties of Hedley. They Sundayed  here and were blessed with fine weather for a trip up to the mine. The Gazette wishes the happy couple long  life and prosperity.  Cattle continue to come down the  river in large numbers without anyone driving them and a large baud of  them paraded the golf links all day  Sunday. Some complain of a pugnacious bull in the bunch that always  showed an inclination to open hostilities without even a declaration of war.  In one case he squared up to a couple  armed with rifles who were on their  way out into the hills after deer. Mad  he come on too persistently and insisted on close-in-fighting he would likely  have got a few bullets in his carcase,  and would have had nobody to blame  but his own fool self, for no person is  required to allow himself to he gored  to death whom he has a rifle along. A  couple of years ago George Lyon had  an ugly experience with a vicious  animal that strayed into the field  from a bunch that was passing up the  civil  dispute  about stock  which   had  nothing  to do with  the criminal code  and  begging  them to either proceed  with the charge against him  or withdraw it.   Only one reply could be pulled out of them  to the  whole sheaf of  telegrams and letters, and that was a  letter from district attorney Whitman  asking Mr. Brookes to call at his office  in  New York some  time during   the  week    beginning Nov.   10th   to   talk  matters  over witli him.     The Becker  case now in the limelight taken along  with  this  affair leaves no other conclusion   than that  they have a rotten  conception  of   the administration   of  justice in the land of liberty.    If Mr.  Brookes  has transgressed  the laws of  the United States he should be punished.    There is a law providing for the  extradition  of law-breakers and why  is it not  used?     If he does anything  wrong on this side of the line   let us  hope  that Canadian  law  will not be  similarly prostituted.  HEDLEY* B. C.
