Unfortunately the-weather was not  according to order*, which marred  somewhat the comfort of visitors.  While there was no rairi, the wind was  tempestuous and rather cold.  Hediey turned out en masse, and  Princeton,- Fairview, Penticton and  Okanagan Falls were 'also well represented. From across the *line, the  Great Northern train~bi ought in a  good contingent, from Oroville and  Nighthawk. They had no extra rolling  stock on hand to tun a regular excursion, and as a result the passenger  coach used for the regular run was  filled from end to end and the baggage  car served to stow a.way the overflow  which failed to get a place in the coach.  ., BASEBALL.  The principal event was the baseball  tournament, for which four teams  competed.. The first game was,between  Hediey and Nighthawk, .and was won  by Nighthawk on a. score of 4 to 2.  Oroyille aud Keremeos *were next  matched, and Oroville won easily on  a score of 9 to 1. The play oft" was between Oroville and Nighthawk, and  was won by Oroville on a score of 5 to  2. Tlie games Were decided on seven  innings each.  TRAP  SHOOT.  For the trap shoot three teams entered. These were Hediey, Fairview  and Keremeos. In this, Hediey had a  substantial lead getting a score of 64  birds out of 100. Fairview came second  with j35 and Keremeos third with '33  out- of 100.      .  Visitors complained of an app_arent  lack of system or organization iu bringing off the events. To this is ascribed  the many delays which prevented getting through a'" programme that was  not long. As a result, none of the  athletic sports were brought off, tind  very few of the horse-racing events.  Of these latter, no provision was made  to give any information to the crowd  as to who the contestants were or  what horses were entered, and when a  heat was run there was no announcement made or chalked up as to the  judges' decision.  Apart from the programme there  was a match horse race, between R. J.  Armstrong and J. Thomas, which was  won by the latter. It is "said that  about $400 was up on it.

Large  Docket ��������� Two   Murders  Other Serious Criminal Cases.  and  The spiing assizes held at Vernon  took place, last week before Justice  Irving, with Attorney-general Bowser  acting .Crown prosecutor.  The district of which Vernon is the  judicial centre furnished a sufficiently  liberal supply of serious cases in itself  to make tlie sittings of more than  usual interest, and to these was added  the Douglas Lake cattle stealing case,  which for some reason was brought  over from Kamloops ��������� possibly the  change of venue being for the purpose  of eliminating local influences and local sympathies.  The grand jury was composed of W.  F. Cameron (foreman), A; C. Carew,  F. C. Wolfenden, B. Francis, H. W.  Knight, P. Dickson, E. C. Thompson,  Geo. G. Heggie, E. Weddell, C. Ques-  nel, F. H. Barnes, R. H. Copeland and  Jas. Sutherland.  . True bills were brought in by the  grand jury in Rex vs. Davidson, Rex  vs. Robertson <fc McNutt, Rex vs. Geo.  McCalla and Rex vs. Hi ties.  The Graves-Goodwin ease lasted for  two days and at the end the jury  couldn't agree and were discharged, although the evidence was very strong.  The absence of the defendant, Hines,  in the Chance murder" case, was an important hindrance to proceeding with  tlie trial before a petit jury.  In the McCalla. case the charge was  changed to manslaughter and the prisoner was given a ten years' sentence.  If you haven't renewed your  miners' licence remember that it  run out the last day of May.  free  will  The Canadian Forestry Association  must feel gratified tit the increased interest that is being taken in the question of preservation of the forest  wealth of Canada, not only by its own  members but by organizations altogether separate and distinctfrom the  Forestry Association.  One noted example of this was the  attention paid the subject by the Canadian Press Association which met in  Toronto a few weeks ago. As the raw'  inaterial in paper-making comes from  the forest and cheap paper is a desideratum for the publishers of news-  pa pe_rs, the reason why the press gang  were in earnest about it is easily seen.  The following extracts from the Printer and Publisher's report of the proceedings will be of interest. Mr. Big-  gar, who introduced the subject, said :  "It is an important sign of the times  that so much attention is given to the  question of forestry. It's a question,  that not only bears upon our own interests but it has practical relation to  every phase of the'material welfare of  Canada.  " I don't suppose I need go into it  further than to state the A.B.C. of the  matter. When you strip the woods  from the hills which form the. sources  of the rivers, you bring about two  changes. First, you bring about a difference in the distri bution of the rainfall, and in the manner in which that  rainfall passes off. Everyone here who  belongs to an old settled part of Canada will remember that there were  streams running all the year round,  which, as in the case of the tributaries  of the Grand river, are now, in summer time, little more than dry qreek  beds.   In spring time they flood.  "Then the other change is with the  clearing of the land, the spring floods  carry away the rich surface soil. The  effect of that on Canada is this. The  time is coming when we must depend  chiefly on the water-powers of the  country for our motive power for industrial purposes. The efficiency of  our water power "depends upon the  minimum now, and if, throughout the  year, this is neglected, you destroy the  value of that water-power, and injure  the soil as well. That, in brief, is the  'situation from a forestry"standpoint.  " The standpoint from the pulp and  paper standpoint is this. Without  cheap supplies of wood we will not  have cheap supplies of paper. The  United States consumes one-third of  the pulpwood of Canada in manufacturing their paper. The proportion is  increasing every year, and while we  have no immediate famine we are. face  to face, with one that is approaching.  In almost evexy State on the other  side the question of forestry is a live  one bearing on the material interests  of the country���������in fact, its importance  is such that it has become one of the  vital questions of the day."  As showing that neglect of forests  actually brought about the decay of  ancient nations; Mr. Biggar referred to  explorations and investigations which  had been made in Syria, in the locality  of the City of Antioch. In one region  60 miles in extent there had been no  less than 150 towns and villages, and it  was established beyond all doubt that  the present desolation of the country  was due to the destruction of the forests. The cedars of Lebanon were in  this very district where cities now only  have a few thousand inhabitants in  place of the many thousands in the  early centuries. With the disappearance of the forests and the surface soil,  the land finally ceased to support the  population.   Some of the villages were  After an absence of nearly  months, Mr. F. M. Gillespie returned  on Friday last from a trip'which had  taken him far afield, and in which he  had opportunity to visit scenes that  but few of the work a day bodies in  this country have been priviliged to  visit.  He left Hediey'on the 2nd Of October  lastand proceeded first to his old home  in Toronto, and after a brief visit to  friends in Toronto and other points; he  proceeded to New York, which he  reached in time to see Wall street iti  the midst of-the panic.  -He happened also to come in for the  run on the famous "Knickerbocker  Trust," and was on hand when that  institution closed its doors. Evidences  of the result of the panic were plentiful.  In the early part of the winter Mr.  Gillespie, in company with his cousin,  took passage on the Arabic, of the  White Star line which in the off season"  of ocean traffic made a special trip to  the Mediterranean, passengers being  allowed to transfer to any of the other  ships of the White Star line if they  wished to pursue any other line of  sight-seeing than that provided for in  the Arabic's route, although that in  itself made:provision for various side  trips by rail oh the continent, rejoining the ship at certain ports. _  Among the 'ports where stops were  made were Madeira, Cadiz (with a side  trip to Seville), Algiers, Gibraltar,  Malta, Phaleroh Bay, and to Athens by-  train where they were given an opportunity to refresh the memory on Grecian history and classic legends. At  Constantinople and Palestine acquaintance was made with the unspeakable  Turk. The Holy Land was hit at several points including Smyrna, Caiffa  and Jaffa. From the last port Jerusalem, Bethlehem and other points were  done.'and a feature of interest which  appealed to _him particularly was the  quarry from which King Solomon obtained the stone out of which the temple had been built. The white chalky  soft character of this when first broken  out of the quarry and the hardness  which resulted from exposure of it to  the air was' shown in samples which  he brought.       -  From Palestine he hiked for Egypt,  where he did up Alexandriaand-Cairo,  obtaining unique souvenirs and then  proceeded to "Naples by way of the  straits of Messina, going between Seyl-  la and Charybdis. From Naples a  round of sight-seeing that included  trips to Pompeii and Rome, occupied  about a. week's time, and the Pompeian  part of it had special interest for him  with recollections both amusing and  instructive. Nice, Monte Carlo and  the Riviera had also a lively interest,  but doing old London on his arrival in  England was perhaps as enjoyable as  any part of the trip.  He is taking a few days to doff the  holiday habit, after which the old  grind will be resumed. Henceforth  those who have mail matter to send to  the Holy Land can count on it getting  the proper start. Mr. Gillespie's Hediey friends ate pleased to see him back  and to know that he had so enjoyable,  a  trip.  (Itossland Miner.).'  Nearly the entire gold output of the  Yukon, besides that-mined in British  Columbia, it is expected, will be directed to Victoria when the Dominion  mint begins to coin the yellow metal.  'Most, of the'Yukon'gold'-.is now marketed in Seattle at the U. S. branch  assay office there. In a recent interview an official of the provincial tieas-  iiry department said that if arrange-  jnents proposed were made between  tlie federal authorities and the mint  for the payment of- the. transportation  charges  on   the  gold  'from  different  parts of Canada--it would mean that  the government would'be. in'a position  to pay six or seven cents an ounce for  gold more, than is paid' in Seattle.  Canada needs more gold in general  circulation, and this "want will be  speedily filled by minting the gold  taken from the Yukon and British  Columbia. In some countries gold is  the principal medium for paying large  sums, and paper money is very little  in evidence, while in Canada it is rarely that gold is used in mercantile or  business .transaction. Here paper  money is by far the most used. With  a mint., turning out. a stream of gold  coins the situatibu in this regard would  be quickly changed.  V. V. & E.   PROGRESS.  On Monday morning a gang of Italians started in on the west end of  smelter flat. Their camp is down in  the creek bottom on the east side of  Twenty-mile. The grade at the top of  the bank gives a cut a little over S feet  deep, and the depth gets less on going  further east.  The cut on F. P. Howard's job which  he abandoned two weeks ago, is being  completed by another gang of men  who started in ��������� there a few days ago.  They require to take about three feet  more off the sides all the way along  the portion taken out by Howard. A  great amount of" dirt is required for  the fill over to the rock work.  The work on the rock bluff is getting  along pretty well. The portion remaining to be taken out is getting  small.'  The steam shovel is moving dirt  quite rapidly down below Brushy  Bottom, and a-few days more will enable them to finish up there and take  a move to the north end , of Brushy  Bottom.  There will be no trouble to have  everything out of the way of the tracklayers, who are expected to start im  about the middle of June.  MINING ACTIVITY  AT NIGHTHAWK.  Plants Are Being   Installed and Work  Prosecuted Vigorously.  to-day absolutely deserted.  "Without cheap material you caiir  not long expect to have cheap paper,"  said Mr. Biggar. "If we conserve the  pulpwood, prohibit its export, or place  some restriction upon its consumption  we will be performing one of the greatest services we could possibly render  to this country, while if we allow the  forests .to be destroyed the country  will never be what we imagine it will  be in the near future."  The discussion which followed showed the upward tendency in the price  of paper and the difficulty in getting  manufacturers to enter into contract  for long periods. Local conditions effecting the output of pulpwood were  also shown to be unfavorable, and  would contribute to increase in price,  but the main thing is to look ahead  and guard against the calamity that  would result from exhaustion of the  supplies.  (Oroville Gazette.)  The musical notes of the. whistle of  the Nighthawk mine, shook the air in  the Similkameen valley last Monday  when  they started   up in   full blast  again at sharp 7,  a. in.    The Night-  hawk mining Co. have ordered a big  No 3 machine drill to put in the main  tunnel, and are going to drive the tunnel through to the main ledge, the machine drill they are using now will be  put to work taking out ore.   Mr. J. P.  Gormley, superintendent of the Night-  hawk mine, is giving his personal attention to the work.   Mr. Gormley informs us that the company are going  ahead,  and will push the work as fast  as they possibly can.   The work on  the mill  is going rapidly   along, aud  they will soon be done   with   the   excavating, and will push the mill up at  once.    Mr. Neil  McFadden,  the millwright who is overseeing the erecting  of the mill will soon be joined  by Mr. .  Daye Loney, master mechanic of the  Stemwinder Mining Co.  of Fairview,  B. C, who will have charge of installing the machinery in   the   mill   here.  Both men are   experts   in   their lint!,  and the Nighthawk Mining Go. are assured by having competent men  that  their mill will be put up  in first-class  shape.    Mr. Gormley  has full charge  of the entire workings here. -yi^,':/:'���������  2  THE   HEDLEY   GAZETTE;?; MAY* 2S, 1908.  -t*  2*'  and  Sirti'lkameen Advertiser  M?  action* ��������� of the -Presbyterian  synod on the (Question and expressing a hope that 'the "Methodist conference would deal with  Issued on Thursdays, by tho Hi:iji.i:v Ga/.ktvio #  Piuntim; axi> i'rui.wiiixcCoMiuNv.      jit in  a broader-spirit.

During the reign of the late Queen  Victoria the day was always  known as "the Queen's Birthday", and to us all it* was that  in reality as well as in name,  for the people loved her and  they were proud to honor her  .birthday.        -  Arter she  was  gone,  it  *as  grief  perhaps the personal  as well, as the habit of over half  a century which made her subject.-; in Canada Joth to give up  the date they were so long accustomed, to celebrate; and ail  hailed with satisfaction the de-  tern ii nation to perpetuate it  under any name which might  be deemed suitable, aud Victoria Day seemed at the time to  be as   suitable   a.:--,   any   other.  Justice Longley of Nova'Sco-  tia chose an ill. time and  an  ill  '������������������"���������./  place to indulge in  his  disloyal  talk when at a. banquet of the  Canadian club in New York  he  ventured to prophesy that the  time  is  Coming  when  Canada  will quit the British fold.     The  rebuke given him bv ambassa-  dor  Bryce  who   was    present,  was timely but was not nearly  severe enough.    This is no new  tiling with Longlej*.    When he  was   premier   of   Nova   Scotia  and leader of the Liberal party  he "was badly tainted  with  annexation  sentiment, but while  that sort-of thing  might be -tolerated at home,  it- is  hard  to  over-look so bad a .break  being  made in New York at so important a function as the  banquet  of the Canadian club.-.    If   Sir  Wilfrid Laurier had  the'' stamina of that other great Liberal  'leader, the late Sir Oliver. Mo w-  at, Mr. Justice  Longley  would  be stripped of his-robe  and dismissed the service.

Dr. Whillans returned from Veinon  on Saturday where be had been called  as a witness at the assizes in the murder casLv against Hines for- the killing  of Nelson Chance at Keremeos last  October.  A gang of Italian's started Saturdny  moining on the new road ,to the station. The grade to reach the Pinto  bench, looks particularly easy, and no  trouble whatever will be experienced  in moving heavy loads oyer it.  Premier McBride ��������� turned the. first  sod for the building of the new hospital in Vernon during his visit there  last week, Those, who saw the,event  claimed they could tell he was Irish by  the way he handled the spade.  R. Stevenson is immensely pleased  with the result of his recent work on  the Chippjewa, group, which has served  to show up some very nice looking  rock carrying gold. He also had some  well mineralized specimens from his  group near Twenty mile lake.  Road Supervisor Deardorff returned  on Saturday from a strennous trip up  Bear"Creek. Considerable repairs will  be required on the Bear Creek road  this year, hut as the snow is still-about  three feet deep up there, it will be several weeks before they can get at it.  Nothing further has been heard .concerning the corpse which the Italians  working at the lower end of Brushy  Bottom claim they saw floating in the  river.

Townspeople in Hediey will regret  to learii of the death of .Mrs. Hazzard,  who spent several months here visiting her "daughter, the late Mrs. Cootes.  The. news came in a letter from Mr.  Cootes to Mr Barnes. Mrs Hazzard  made many friends in Hedley,L and as  it-is understood that she had charge of  the children after Mrs. Cootes' death,  her own demise so shortly'after calls  forth -deepest sympathy from their,  friends in Hedlev.  'J. J. Marks came down from the  Golden Zone on Wednesday. He ex-  pects'to have the mill in operation by  the 20th of June.  Harry Swan came down from the  Golden Zone on Saturday evening,  and took in the celebration at Keremeos on Monday. When down there  he .would view the site of the new  bridge, the" building of which he will  shortly have in charge, and the opportunity of thus seeing the river in high  water will lie of no little value, to him.  The. Siuiilkameen river has not as  yet ij-ot very higli at any time, this  spring, and neither has it dropped off  much but is tunning a fair volume of  water. This makes "conditions favorable, for a-pretty decided fall when the  water does begin to drop. It is hoped  that by the middle of June, the river  will be low enough to enable, bridge  work to commence, for the track-layers  will only have, a few days' work to do  until they will be up against the first  bridge. ,   * _        ���������  Mrs. Ericson, of Nelson, came over  last week to visit her sister, Mrs G.

It was first  reported that he had burnt it down  himself. Further inquiries lead to Unbelief .that while it was not likely he  had done so tleliberatejy, the drunken  state'in which ho..had'been for days  made his condition such that he .was  temporarily incapable of knowing  what he ���������was,doing. . His conduct for  the. past mouth or more has been particularly bad, and his family have had  to-suffer in consequence. Oil information supplied lu'ni by neighbors and  other:-, constable Sproule was obliged  to act. On Monday Lorir/.etto was  brought up, and besides being fin'eil  was informed that a three months'  term in Kamloops awaited him if he  repeated the offence. Those who sell  him liquor will therefore know that  with the liquor they will be giving  him a. three months term in Kamloops.  AN OLD PIONEER GONE  Jennie Copland Laid   at   Rest  in Camp  McKinney  Cemetery.  From Boundary pa.peis we learti  of  tlie death of Mrs..Copland,  and-of the  largely attended', funeral, when the remains were buried in the cemetery at  Camp-McKinney on Wednesday May  20th.    "Jennie Copland"  we all called  her, and the dusky complexion which  marked her as  belonging to  another  people  made no.difference in her case;  for we saw only  the. white  heart  beneath.    Love,   which is older than:the  hills,   has..'taken  many of. her fairer  sisters  into distant lands   away from  kith and kin with- the man they loved,  and it brought Jennie away from her  people on the Skeeria   when  the restless spirit of the placer miner prompt-'  ed tlie move from far-off Cassiar to the  ditches   and   sluice-ways   of   Granite  creek.    And when  the1  Granite  creek  excitement was over,  the next move  was'to the south fork of Rock creek  where in as pretty a spot as  can  be  found anywhere inthis laud of beauty,  she kept a cosy cabin  neat and  clean,  and hwre with her husband   for nearly  twenty years, lived  close,  to  nature's  heart'.

Victoria  Times,   Kamloops Inland - Sentinel and Greenwood Times Still  Peddling the Falsehood.  It is easily understood how a -newspaper might unwittingly publish an  article that  is false and do it in perfectly good  faith,  believing it to be  true ;  but for papers like the Victoria  Times,    Kamloops    Inland    Sentinel,  Greenwood Times aud some other Liberal' p.-tpers,  which' in the interests of  this province and of truth and justice  should-  be opposing   the   Aylesworth  election bill instead of upholding it, to  insult the  intelligence of their readeis  by giving out the   substance of the.  Bole affidavits, several days after their  falseness had been proven on the. floor  of the house at Ottawa by Dr. Roche,  the. member for Marquette,   is to force  any fair-minded man to the conclusion  that party journalism in this, province  is getting to a very low ebb.  In order to make, a point against the  provincial election act in ManitobaV  . D. W. Bole, the abseiitee member for  . Winnipeg, read .on'.'the floor, of the  house in .Ottawa.'four fraudulent affidavits furnished by a foreigner named  Theodore Rudneskie, to the effect that  several hundred Galicians whose naturalization was irregular had been  placed on the voters' lists.  A few days after Bole  sprang this  mine, he was replied to by Dr. Roche,  the member for Marquette, who showed the house that Rudneskie, a fugitive  from justice.; had been paid $25.00 by  Geo. Walton, M. P. P., for Eiiinierson,  the Liberal organizer for   Manitoba,  for eight affidavits although Bole read,  only four.   Roche was able to produce  the   cheque   which   Walton   gave   to  Rudneskie. on the face of which   was  written for "S men's affidavits." Roche  also "prod-iced  affidavits from the officials in the county court at Winnipeg  who were accused  by Rudneskie,  in  the affidavits, of irregularities in connection u'ith the naturalization of Galicians, giving flatdenial to the charges.  Walton's cheque in  payment of the  affidavits was dated March 30th, 1907,  -and Rudneskie's affidavits were dated  March 31st, 1907,  and  Rudneskie fled  the country a few days later.  The Winnipeg Telegram publishes  the affidavits in full and reproduces a  fac simile of the Walton cheque. The  Telegram also issues the following  challenge:  "The Bole affidavits were designed  to back up the plea that Liberal electors have not had a fair deal in the  past. The Telegram has as much faith  in the fairness and impartiality of the  lists which have been prepared in the  past under the existing Manitoba Election Act as it has in the belief that the  coming preparation of the lists will be  conducted fairly. Firm in this confidence The Telegram: wit-i. pay $25  to any qualified,elector, who not being  on the voters' lists and applying in the  regular   manner   was   refused  the  RIGHT TO REGISTER IN THE LAST REVISION* of the Manitoba voters'  list. Moreover The Telegram is willing, if any claim or claims be made,  to have them decided by Sir Wilfrid  Laurier, from whose decision  there shall re no appeal."  And yet party papers in British Columbia will.still try to spread the original Bole falsehood.

Republicans of Washington   State  So in Convention at Spokane.  Say  Politicians across the line are busy  sizing up futures, and the problem they  seek out is who will be the next president. The first step in the process for  solution is to determine who is to be  the republican nominee, and once this  question is settled the rest would appear reasonably easy. At present all  energies are bent on landing the nomination for the right man, and as most  of the state conventions are instructing their delegates who to support in  the national convention, the outcome  may be pretty accurately gauged before that event comes off.  The Spokane convention declared  for Taft and as many other states are  doing likewise it begins to look as if  Taft would collar the bun.  We see by southern exchanges that  Frank M. Dallam, the capable talented  editor of the Palmer Mountain Prospector, .obtained a place on the state  electoral ticket. Not being posted on  the minutiae in the machinery of electoral affairs across the line we do not  know how much glory is attached to  this, but if it is good enough for him,  it is a very sure thing that in his case,  it is deserved.

The ea.rl.est cJtton .'spinning  inai'iinery ^gave serious trouble  through' filaments of cotton adhering  to the bobbins, thus involving frequent  stoppages to clear the machinery. The  wages of the operatives were affected  by these delays, but it was noticed that  one man in the works always drew full  pay.
