Stevenson  started up Nickel Plate trail in company .with Jas. E. McCauley to visit  his group of claims known as the Penticton group, a little beyond Iiiordan  mountain, but they Avere forced to turn  back oAA-hig to the .'depth of snow, when  they were'- within about tAvo miles of  the property. The snow was still  about 3 feet deep. They concluded  to leave- it for a Aveek or tAvo more before ma king (mother attempt.  Speaking of high water, Mr. Stevenson told of the flood of 1S00 which took  place as late as July4th.   In that year  the British survey party, laying out  the boundary line,  lost three men by  the capsizing of a dug-out canoe.   The  graves of these men are. on the river  bank near Mr. Webster's place.    Mr.  Stevenson also told of the error of 360  yards made in delineating the line, the  British  party being too generous to  that extent.   A coiitiwersy took place  on  this question  some years ago in  Victoria papers, in which Mr. Stevenson had decidedly the best of it when  he showed the hollowness of the claim  that the second  line cut out Avas only  a miileU-ail,  by asking whether mule  trails were cut out 100 feet Avide, and  wagering .$500 that he could show two  lines at Osoyoos cut out 100 feet wide.  A captain of a British ship also determined-the latitude with his nautical  instruments   at Point   Roberts,   and  shoAved  that the monuments Avere being put in in the wrong place,  or 360  yards north of the 49th parallel instead  of on the 49th parallel.  Although complete data are not yet  available for a connected history of  this branch of the mineral industry  some interesting information on the  subject has been obtained by personal  investigation, which.I purpose to present 'briefly for the information of the  readers of The Mining,.World.  The record of placer mining in British 'Columbia is one of. great interest  and importance since it comprises territory from the Wild Horse, in East  Kootemiy, to Rock and Boundary  creeks, thence along the Similkameen  to Granite Creek and the Tulameen,  thence to the Fraser and Cariboo and  to later familiar and interesting fields.  No completely authentic records of  this class, of mining: appears to have  been kept, but the. official records of  the times contain many reliable facts  and figures connected with the indus-  try. ������  LIST OF   STATIONS.

Much exaggeration accompanied the  statistics of that day, and even the  special correspondent of the London  Times, who Avas sent by that journal  to Obtain facts and figures connected  with the. yield of gold in Cariboo and  other parts, was imposed upon by the  spirit of exaggeration that prevailed,  and he-was eventually compelled to  modify ATery considerably the statements which he himself had made  with regard to the gold production of  British Columbia in the pioneer days  of mining.  As there is a lingering impression  that a revival of placer mining in British Columbia is one of the signs of the  times, and as a number of Avell informed persons connected Avith the mineral  industry are of the opinion that this  may happen at any time, it is desirable  that information in relation to early  placer inining in the. province, should  be revised and presented even if only  in a. disconnected way, as mining history, like political history often repeats itself.  The. movements, of the early placer  miner in British Columbia, like those  of other countries, haA-e been compared  Avith those of the Arabs that "fold  their tents and steal silently aAvay."  He ��������� was busy Avith his sluice one day  on Something creek and the next found  him advancing in light order to Nothing creek, and eA'er afterwards he kept  on the move, unless he happened to  strike it rich ; but too often his good  fortune proved to be his one evil genius.  He is still encircling the earth, and  may some day come back to the point  where he began his meanderings.  In the early days of the veiy late '50s  and the early '00s the old time bars of  the  Fraser had  for the greater part  suggestive names.     There was Boston  bar,  Alexander  bar, Wellington   bar.  Hello bar, Texas bar,   Sailor bar, American bar, kanory bar and Chapman's  bar and the creeks that emptied  into  the   Fraser   in   the   neighborhood of  these bars were named SaAV Mill creek,  Boston Bur creek, Ladner's creek, Gordon creek, Emory  Bar creek,   American  creek and both  forks of Siwash  creek.    And there Avere of great rivers  the Fraser,  the Similkameen and the  Tulameen,   the   Columbia  and   Pend  d'Oreille, and near the  119th meridian  close   to  the  international   boundary  are Boundary and Rock creeks, and in  later times Granite creek,   heading up  at the source of the Tulameen.  The south forks of the Similkameen  bear many e\*idences of those early  days, and the Similkameen betAveen  Haynes' house and the Okanagan and  On Thursday's stage from Penticton  Messrs. J. A, Allen  and A.O.Hayes,  both of Montreal,  arrived in Hediey  and began  preparations for the season's Avork of the Canadian Geological  Survey in this camp.;,. They belong to  Mr. Camsell's party and expect him  in this   AA'eek.     Mr.   Allen   Avas ;: Mr.  Camsell's assistant last year in the examination made of Copper .and Kennedy mountains and  the section  about  Princeton, a full report of which appeared in   the   Gazette   a   couple   of  months ago, being taken from the departmental report made by Mr.   Cam-  sell.    On completion  of last season's  Avork Mr. Allen re-entered McGill and  has graduated this spring.   Mr. Hayes  is also a McGill student, and -will go  back to complete his course at the end  of this-season's field Avork.  The Avork which Mr. Camsell has in  hand for this/season is to prepare an  accurate map of .Camp. Hediey on a  scale of about half a mile to the inch,  showing all the topographic features  with a contour interval of 100 feet.  The geological formations Avill be  plotted on this map and probably the  most or all of the surveyed mineral  claims may be shown. In all probability the sheet Avill cover an area of  about 80 square miles or 9x9 miles.  This programme .-indicates a degree  of thoroughness that is most gratifying. Mi*. Camsell is regarded as one  of the best of the younger men on the  Survey, and in Messrs. Allen and  Hayes he has competent and enthusiastic assistants.  In all probability they may do about  a Aveek's work above Princeton before  starting in as Mr. Camsell Avas prevented last year from getting some  bearings which he required, owing to  the dense smoke from forest fires that-  prevailed in August and September.  LOOKS  LIKE  BUILDING  Interest on the Wenatchee   Branch  awakened by Arrival of American Steel at Oroville. '  Re-  For several Aveeks past little Av.-is  heard of the Wenatchee-Oroville  branch Avhieh the Great Northern have  had in view to shorten the route be-  tAyeen-Boundary, and the coast and  also Similkameen and Okanagan and  the Coast,, and it was thought that  prevailing shortage of lobor had temporarily shelved the project, but the  arrival of large quantities of American steel at Oroville and unloading it  there, can point in no other direction  than that it is the intention to complete this piece of road in" the near  future.  So far as the V. V. it E: is  concerned, no more American steel is required,  and none of the Canadian steel for use?  this side of Chepaco is eyer allowed to  remain at any station in   Washington  while in    transit to  the: end of the  track.    The Canadian steel   is now at  Midivay, and is sent forward  to  the  front in train  loads  under a convoy  who sees-that it goes straight through.  The Oroville Gazette, says:    "Wednesday eArening a -train load of steel  arrived here from  eastern  points for  the railroad company.    The steel Avas  left in the yard at this'place, '/where, .'it  is said it will be  unloaded.   'It is-reported on the street  this  Aveek  that,  some 300 carloads of track steel is to  arrive here in the next l'eiv days to be  unloaded at the'yards   at   this   place.  This is in addition to the large amount  of Canadian steel that is hoav at  Midway, and which will rbe used  on  the  road   betAveen   here   and   the   coast...  Just what use this new supply of steel  is to he put to has hot been announced  but many profess  to  believe  that it  means that the road down the river is  to he built this year."  IMPORTANT LAND DEALS  FAIRVIEW  NOTES.  Thos. Elliott, a Avell-knoAvn old-  timer, is re-visiting the camp.  Alex. D. Mclntyre, official administrator, of Kamloops, spent a few days  here  in  connection  with the , Powers  estate.  Mr. J. H. Cairns, local manager of  Shatfords Limited, left on Friday for  Vancouver, his successor, Mr, H. A.  Montgomery, lnwing arrived in FairvieAV the day before.  Thos. Ellis Avas in town last Aveek,  and his friends Avere pleased to see him  looking fresher and more actiA-e than  he had been for years. Residence in  the capital apparently agrees Avith him.  ���������Mr. and Mrs. Richard Russell Avere  called east by a message telling of the  dangerous illness of Mr. Russell's  mother in Hamilton, Out. On reaching Penticton, on their aaviv east, another telegram Avas received, stating  that she had died.  A party consisting of Mr. Jas. Val-  lance, of the Vernon Hardware Co.,  Mrs. Vallance and their guests, Mr.  and Mrs. D. A. McKee, of Ladners,  drove in from Penticton. They had  A-isited A-arious points on Okanagan  Lake, and in the Lower Okanagan be  tween Penticton and FairvieAV. From  here they Avent across to Keremeos,  intending to return to Penticton by  Avay of Keremeos Creek. They Ave re  most favorably impressed with the appearance of the Okanagan.  Pork-steaks may be quite the proper  caper, but a AVliole ham Avould be more  like the size for a hungry coAvboy. Of  course, the joke Avas on  the  butchers,  Similkameen Land Having an  Innings-  Brushy Bottom is Sold.  Manitobans have begun to evince a  preference for Similkameen land and  as result some important deals have  recently been made.  The leading purchases Avere made by  Mr. A. Macdonald, of Moosejaw Avho  is reported to have bought for George  S. LaAvrence. of Moosejaw-. In addition to the purchase of the Webster  homestead across the river at Keremeos, the deal covered also the ranch  the lower Similkameen leased by J. E.  Coulter.  Another deal that is pending is that  of the. Armstrong ranch recently  bought by R. J. Armstrong from his  brother. Mr. Macdonald Avent down  on Tuesday to look the property over.  On Saturday last in company with  Rev. A. H. Cameron, Mr. Macdonald  examined Brushy Bottom. He had  figures from C. deB. Green C. B., avIio  is agent for the property, the owner  residing in England.  Already Avork has started in dividing the Webster property into ten  acre lots. J. P. Gordon C. E., formerly on the V.

Impromptu Hop Held in Fraternity Hall  ���������Balance to Hospital Fund.  like.Aviso the Pend d'Oreille gave good  results from gravels and benches.  Continued Xext Week.  Methodist service will be held in the  church on Sunday (wening at 7:30.  This Avill be Mr. Hibbert's last service  in Hediey before leaving for his new  field at Penticton.  A little social dance Avhieh Avas altogether an impromptu affair AA-as got  up on Victoria. Day, by way of celebrating that occasion, and although  only a feiAr hours' notice were given,  there Avere thirty-five ladies present  and considerably more than that number of gentlemen. The impromptu  feature of the e\rent was in many respects convenient, for it relieved the  necessity of heart-burnings on the subject of Avhat to Avear, and the enjoyment Avas none the less because of lack  of opportunity for more elaborate preparations.  Among the guests were several newcomers in the. town  and   the  occasion  offered a convenient opportunity for  Judge of their sur-j becoming acquainted,   Avhieh   Avas  in  itself a gratifying feature.  The floor was in good condition, the  music spirited and the company in  mood for enjoyment, and under such  favorable conditions the event could  not prove othenvise than a pronounced  success.  After all expenses had been paid  there was left a balance of $9.65, Avhieh  was turned OA'er to the hospital fund.  but who Avould have thought Avhen  Val proposed killing a sucking pig out  of a choice litter, that the beggar  Avould have gone through Avith the  gory deed, just because the OAvner happened good-naturedly to say "all right"  to the proposal.  prise, however, to find a juvenile  porker about half-way in size betAveen  a red squirrel and a yearling rabbit  hung up by the. heels, duly scalded,  scraped, opened, skewered and trimmed out in all the panoply and pomp of  a prize 200 pounder. No wonder the  owner says Avhen setting'cm up, "darn  him ; he needn't have taken the best  one in the bunch." THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE,   MAY   30,   1907.

EDITORIAL  COMMENTS
An Irish-American named O'Calla-
gha-n attended the hi;;- scold in Dublin
and -assured the 'Nationalists that
tlie Irish pa.i-ty in the United States
were "wicl them" anJ. .vould prevent
England from effecting any alliance
Avith the United Slates. A Romish
priest named Father UiunphreA's was
also a prominent figure in the scold
and Avas fjuite positive that. Birrell's
bill "would drive the priests out of
the schools and let in the devil." In
this country we are prepared to take
chances on the.-devil so long as they
lire the priests, and the more levelheaded among Roman Catholics anas anxious to see clerical interference
with the schools stopped as are protectants. The'Orangemen have always
contended that ''Home rule meant
Rome rule," and this speech of the
Dublin priest will do more than anything else to convince the British people that ivhat the Orangemen said was
correct, avid that ''Home rule" really
Avould mean "Rome rule."
The i'l'i'ling of   unrest   in   India   is
causing grave fears  in   Great Britain
and especially among those.  avIio have
relatives  in   tlie   Indian   ci\ri 1  seiwice
and in regiments on service   in   India.
It is an indisputable fact that   Liberal
rule in England   never fails to produce
conditions   in     possessions     oA7er-seas
from which .arise troubles that cannot
be straightened out until British blood
and   treasure   have been   poured  out.
Time ami   again   British   prestige   has
suffered as the   result   of  the   namby-
pamby   peace-at-any-price    policy     of
British   Liberals.      Gladstone's   willy-
nilly treatment   of   affairs   in    Egypt
cost tiie.ilife of Gordon   at Khartoum
and   of   many   distinguished    British
generals in   the campaigns  of  ]884-5,
and a condition of affairs Avas brought
about which only   the  virile  administration   of   Salisbury,     the    tact    of
Cromer and  the  bull-dog  pertinacity
of Kitchener hi ought  to a. successful
issue on the hard-fought fields of At-
ba.ra   and  Omdurmau   before   the  insolent pride and tyranny of the  emirs
was broken.     See   again   the   fearful
cost of some months of Liberal  vacillation which introduced the foul chapter of the. doings of 1S81 Avith its memories of Rork's Drift and Majuba, Hill.

Important Land Deals��������� Base-ball Game  ���������LoAre   Laughs at   Bolts  and  Bars.  Heal estate has commenced to move  in real earnest and  the past ten days  has  witnessed  some  important deals.  Tlie-most'important; is that of.the sale  of the splendid ranch of E<1av. Bulloek-  AVebster to  Ceorge  S.  Lawrence,  of  Moosejaw.     The consideration is reported   to ha ah?  been  something over  .$���������10,000.    This  ranch  embraces u   fine  tract of land acquired by Mr. AV'cbster  about liventy years ago, and a''portion  of Avhieh Av;is   well-improved,  a. large  orchard being set out  Avhieh has been  in bearina: for a considerable time, and  Avhieh  did  its  share   to establish the  fruit-growing  possibilities of the dis- j  trict.    Being across   the  river ivhich i  was  never bridged at this prtint, few  visitors ever had an opportunity of inspecting the premises.    The buyer has  succeeded in getting hold of a particularly good thing,  for with the advent  of the  railway the property Avill be no  longer isolated.  Victoria, Day was celebrated with a  baseball match between NighthiiAvk  ;nid Keremeos. which resulted in a  victory for Keremeos by 13���������i). A return match will be played at Night-  hu.Avk on ���������I une 2nd.  AVork is progressing on the ne.Av hotel being erected by Geo.

Mr. Cameron, foreman for the Keremeos Land Co., on the Ashnola-Ker-  enieos Ai'ater ditch, started on Monday  to build a camp about tAvo miles above  Webster's ferry.  Airs. Alex. Broomfield, of MidAvay,  went Avest to visit friends at Princeton  Fred Richardson and Chas. T. Rols-  ton, of Vancouver, and Messrs. Gar-  uett&Son, Medford, Ore., spent a  busy day in Keremeos.  The social given* here on Monday  night in honor of Rev. Mr. Hibbert  was in every Avay a. success. The short  addresses by Mr. P. Bromley and the  clergymen, Messrs Hibbert, Macdonald and Cameron, and the various  games Avere enjoyed by all. Rev Mr.  Hibbert Avas presented with a -well-  filled purse in token of the high esteem in Avhieh he is held and in appreciation of his work of labour and loA'e.  The friends at the loAver Similkameen  also gave Mr. Hibbert a present of $30  and nearly all the settlers in that part  of the district attended the P. M. service held there hist Sunday.

Armstrong and  Miss Smith turns out to have been a  most romantic affair, and one A-ery  much after the thrilling episode of the  young Lochinvar ; for the mother and  the step-father of the bride Avere much  averse to the match, and besides forbidding the groom to come to the  place, were keeping a strict Avatch upon the bride. A friendly emissary,  boAvever, communicated to her the intelligence that her ca\*alier Avas in a  near-by thicket armed with a marriage  licence, and Avith an extra saddle horse.  Watching an opportunity���������and true  to her troth.���������she ran like a Avood  nymph, sans hat and sans jacket, for  the thicket, ivhere, jumping into the  empty saddle awaiting her, they were  off full gallop in a twinkling, and then  "There was mounting 'lining grnoines of the  Xetlierhy elan;  Korstcrs,  Fen wicks and Musgrnves they rode  and tliey ran:  There was racing mul chasing on Cannobie lea.  Hut the lost-bride of N'etliorby ne'er did they  see."  for the devoted pair Avere off to Keremeos Avhere they sought the aid of the  Rev. A. H. Cameron, who, all oblivious  of the stirring scene that preceded it,  tied the precious knot; and doubtless  in the years to come some scion of the.  house will tell the tale of " his pa's  romance."

Let me mail you free, to proA'e merit,  samples of my Dr. Shoop's Restorative  and my Book on either Dyspepsia, the  Heart or the Kidneys. Address me,  Dr. Shoop, Racine. Wis. Troubles of  the Stomach, Heart or Kidneys, are  merely symptoms of a deeper ailment.  Don't make the common error of  treating symptoms only. Symptom  treatment is treating the RESULT of  your ailment, and not the cause.  Weak stomach nerves���������inside nerves  ���������means Stomach Aveakness, always.  And the Heart and Kidneys, as well,  have their controlling or inside nerves.  Weaken these nerves, and you ineArit-  ably have weak vital organs. Here is  Avhere Dr. Shoop's Restorative has  made its fame. No other remedy even  claims to treat the " inside nerves."  Also for bloating, biliousness, bad  breath or complexion, use Dr. Shoop's  Restorative. Write for my free. Book  hoav, Dr. Shoop's Restorative.   Sold by  JOHN LOVE, Hediey.
