H. Brookes and his associates, and we are pleased to say that  the improved showing well i-eipaid irs  for the climb.  For the past thi-ee months work has  been in progress under the direction  ���������of Adam, Creelmaii who . is the local  representative of the bond-holders and'  at is understood is himself financially  interested in it. Tlie working force  has been very small,, comprising only  ���������three men but the work they have  accomplished in the time, and especially in such desperately hand rock  with hand steel, has been somewhat  of a surprise. For a couple of weeks,  or more on the stare they were engaged in making a thorough sampling of  the property and in doing so they  went- over not only the workings of  the Kingston buL also of the Metropolitan and War-horse claims of the  Kingston group. These sajiinples which  were not only for the .purpose of ascertaining the correct average value  of the ore bodies exposed in the various places opened up but to .locate  definitely all the pay shoots .-,iud also  to permit of extensive metallurgical  tests to find out the proper mode of  treatment.  Beyond this sampling mo work has  recently been done on either the Metropolitan or Warhorse claims. . On  these and especially the Metropolitan,  the work formerly done w.us sufficient  to give a- fail- idea of tlie bodies of ore  available and the values in each case  but oh the Kingston claim upon which  far more work-had been done thai* .-on  the other two combined there was  much to Ire found out, and it was here  the work of the past three months  was concentrated.   .    -;  Those   who have examined  and are  familiar   with   the   workings   on   the  Kingston   or  who  have followed and  can  remember from   former- descriptions given in these columns,   will remember the long tunnel driven into  the hill a short distance in rear of the  biinkhouse.    At  the  mouth   of that  tunnel   they passed   through   an   ore  body of payable grade and a good rnar-  erin besides and that the  tunnel in its  course continued in ore for a considerable distance, srradually shading off into unpayable, ore aud when the course  of the  tunnel   was  deflected to  intersect a dyke, which showed on the surface some distance  up  the hill   more  payable ore was again encountered beyond   the dyke  and along  the  line of  contact.    Tlie plan adopted in the present work  by  Mr. Creelmaii   was   to  keep with the payshoot and, profiting  by   the    Nickel    Plate   experience   in  similar cases.to pursue development in  the payable region   no matter in what  direction   that   might  lead them.    In  this case   the direction   was unmistakably downward and accordingly they  continued to sink although their shaft  from  a ruining  point of  view  would  look a trifle odd.     It was information  and  ore  Mr. Creelinan was  after and  not the laying out of a plan of inining  along stereotyped   lines.     The  latter  fatuous  course   was   in fact   the rock  upon which former operations in that  locality  made  shipwreck  or  was not-  attended   with   the degree  of success  which it should have met.   This shaft,  or incline (for it was not carried down  vertically) was sunk to the depth of 10  feet and instead of any  tendency to  pinch out, the pay values are constant  with a distinct improvement all the  way, for  while at the  collar of the incline the pay ore   was in   ribbons  and  bands   it  has  now   become   massive,  breaking in large chunks with strong  mineralization  and  the   arsenopyrite  and chalcopyrito (especially the latter)  finely   disseminated' throughout.     A  Ottawa. Out., May 17���������The Minister  of Agriculture, Hon. Martin Burrell is  coining to the aid of the Canadian  sheep industry. - A grant of -money is  to be niade this summer towards the  improvement of stock in British Columbia, and in the Maritime provinces.  The money will he rrsed by the Dominion sheep breeders' association acting  with the co-operation'of the department of agriculture, and arrangements  for. the expenditure will be completed  this month. Representatives, of the  Dominion and Ontario sheep breeders'  associations will meet officials of the  live stock branch here on Friday. The  proposal is to improve tlie flocks in the  east and British Columbia with stock  purchased in Ontario.  The sheep industry of Canada is represented by two million sheep and-is  declared to be far- behind its proper  status. The effort of improvement  now being made will'he followed by a  study of the wool branch of the sheep  raising in the prairie provinces."  Great Northern Railway Likely to Adopt  More, Progressive Policy  few minutes after-reaching the camp  a round of holes was shot and we had  the opportunity of watching the mucking out and seeing the material that  was brought to' tlie surface with the  windlass and it was every ounce of it  fine looking pay ore.  Tlie reason for tlie ore in this particular case is seen in the fact that it is  laying behind another andesite dyke  which ran across the mouth of the  tunnel at right angles aud dipping not  into the hill but with it. By this it  will lie seen also that in past ages  large quantities of rich ore were eroded off and carried-down the streams  and helped to enrich tlie placer beds  of rivers perhaps hundreds of miles  away. It also accounts for the rich  prospect - holes opened in so rua-ny  places up along the hillside above the  tunnel mouth.  A feature that is most noteworthy  in the present situation is the fact  that while Camp Hediey has never-  figured as a copper-cam*-*, here the  values ��������� in copper as well as gold are  something to be reckoned with and  tend to make it a smelting proposition. In this 40 foot incline the copper along averages over 3% copper  arid the lowest assay showed 2.7% copper.  The minerals present and showing  plainly in almost any hand sample  which may be picked up orr the dump  are arsenopyrite. pyrite. pyrrhotite  chalcopyrite and doubtless both  galena and blende which would Ir-  found on a, careful segregation of the  different sulphides. The gangue here  shows considerable lime spar and as  the ore of the Metropolitan is more or  less silicious a self-fluxing proposition  is in sight, and metallurgical tests already made in Spokane on the samples sent out for that purpose indicate  this. Tlie only thinir that is deficient  in this respect is the iron which is a  trifle low and one of the objects which  Mr. Creelinan bad in view in the present work was to locate more iron.  Where the arsenopyrite is strongest.  the gold values are better. Tn fact the  assays have established the rule that  where the copper values increase the  gold values lessen and vice versa.  A difficulty experienced was to find  a place to keep the ore taken out in  the course of development, for the  mountain side is so steep that it is  difficult to hold it. A lot of the ore  taken out of the incline was stored  away in the old tunnel but as they did  not go far enough back into the tunnel with the barrows to provide, storage for the huge amount of ore taken  out the tunnel filled up on them and  they had to begin dumping it down  the hillside again and trying to hold  it as best they could.  A survey has been made for an  aerial tramway and estimates obtained for cost of same. Meanwhile work  has been shut down and Mr. Creelinan  expects that they will 'resume work in  three weeks with a proper working  force.  The past ten days have brought  assurances from different points that  the Great Northern after their long  rest will adopt a more aggressive  policy in the extension of their lines  into the west.  Thev visit of the G.N.R. officials last  week was re-assuring, to say the least,  when these officials were none other  than the president of the road and his  successor in that high office. It is  true they were not doing much talking but their presence was eloquence  in itself.  In Penticton they were waited upon  by a deputation from the Penticton  Board of Trade consisting of Messrs.  W. T. Shatford. E. Foley-Bennett and  E. Cannel and to these gentlemen Mr.  Hill said:  "We are out" he asserted emphatically, "to do- the best we possibly can  for the fruit growers of the Okanagan  valley, and will shortly send in men  to report on trade conditions, who understand tlie country."  -This assurance is favorably received  at Perrticton where it is taken to mean  that a branch of the Great'Northern  will soon be built up the Okanagan  Valley from Oroville.  But now that Louis Hill has given  .up the presidency of the Great Northern and his place is being taken Ivy  Carl R. Gray it will be interesting to  he-ir also from the new head. This  gentleman was interviewed in Spo  kane and to a press representative he  said:  "We are going to strengthen our  position in the west," said President  Gray emphatically. "That stands to  reason. The northwest is our empire,  and we are not going to let anything  get by.'"  The feature about which we are all  most interested in the Similkameen  is that having to do with completion  of the V. V.<fc E. through to the coast,  and while nothing was given out by  any member of the party when here,it  is significant that, both Louis Hill and  Carl B. Gray went right through to  the coast going as far over the route  to be covered as existing roads would  permit them, while all the others who  are connected with the operating department turned back at the end of  the present grade.  EARL GREY ON CANADA  Counting- Days Until  She Can Claim to  , Bear Burden of Empire  Luidon, May 17���������Presiding at a dinner of the. Royal Canadian institute  held last night at which Viscount Mil-  ner, Earl Stanhope, Admiral Fre-  mantle, Dr. Parkin and Sir Hartman  Just were present, Earl Grey paid a  glowing tribute to the Duke of Con-  tiaught who, together with thaduchess  he said,, had captured the hearts of  the Canadian people immediately upon their arrival in Canada. The people of the Dominion, continued his  lordship, .were conscious of having secured a man as official chief, who' is  not less conspicuous for his lovable  qualities than for the distinction he  enjoys as brother of the late King  Edward, and.uncle of King George.  Recalling Empire day last year in  Toronto, when (5,000 youths shouldered rifles proud of their ability to do  their part in the defence of the empire, Earl Grey said that the sight  made one feel that if there should-be  the question of an "adjunct'' Canada  would not be the adjunct.  Alluding to the fact that Great Britain bore the burden of the empire's  defence, the speaker declared, that  thousands of Canadians were galled at  the thought and envied Great Brit-.  iiin's privilege. They were counting  the days when they could stand and-  claim their share of this burden.  THOS. EDISON'S LATEST  Has    Discovered   Cheap    Metallurgical  Procets for Ore Separation  POLITICAL RUMORS  Gouin  May Succeed  Laurier as Federal  Liberal Leader  Ottawa, May 16.���������Ottawa today  hears a rumor that Sir Loiner Gouin,  winner yesterday for the third time in  Quebec has been marked out to succeed Sir Wilfrid Laurier as the French  LiiM-ral Leader at Ottawa and perhaps  as Opposition leader, as soon as Sir  Wilfrid retires.  Hon. Geo. P. Graham, who was to  have taken on the work of Opposition  lender, is now thought to be an impossibility in view of the extraordinary  disclosures in regard to the cost of the  National Transcontinental railway.  The story is   that Hon. Dr. Belaud,  who    was   Postmaster-Genera!   for a  short time in the Laurier cabinet may  go to  Quebec as  Premier Gouitfs sue  cesser.  DIRT WILL FLY  That is the Assurance That Comes From  Authoritative  Sources  ii. F. Grei-n was the choice of the  Consei-vat-iv'i* convention held in Nelson last- week as caiididate for Kootenay to succeed A. S. Goodeve.  That the Great Northern mean business at last in the extension of their  line through to the coast there is now  every reason to believe, for there is  evidence that work will be pushed up  the Coquihalla from Hope as well as  up the Otter from Tulameen. Mr.  Kennedy, chief engineer, is busy   man  these days getting his engineering  staff organized to push the work from  both ends. His head office is still in  Vancouver but rooms have been taken in the new hotel at Tulameen  which will be the engineering headquarters for the staff at this end, and  while no contracts have yet been let  for the work beyond Tulameen it is  expected that contractors may be  along any day now to look over the  ground.  The following is from one of Hearst's  yellow journals and consequently  must be taken with salt, but it might  be possible for a little truth to filter-  through occasionally and we give it  for what it is worth. The item reads:  Thomas Edison, it was learned by  the New York American, a few days  since, has accomplished the crowning  triumph of his career.  tie has perfected'a method of separating the paying elements of ores  that will mean $100.000,000.a year to  the productive wealth of the country.  The inventor-has been working over  his plan for years, and, it is said, has'  spent a fortune in his experimental'  work.  He   is not at this  time  prepared to-  give out the details of his new method  but it is learned a plant that required.'.  $250,000 a year to operate can be carried on by  the New Edison   method for"  $50,000  The general effect of Edison's method'  is to do away with the term "low-  grade",ore. With his system the valuable, material can be extracted from  all oie. The machinery he has created is so simple a child could operate it..  Those closely associated with tile inventor declare he believes his now  invention is the most valuable he has  given to mankind.  IT. B. Clifford, who is stopping at  the Waldorf-Astoria, stated lately  that there was no doubt about the  success of Edison's work.  "I cannot explain the details" he  said, but there is no doubt about the-  wonderful way it has worked out.  "I am a metallurgist, and it appeals  to me this is tlie most important thing  that Mr. Edison has done for his race.  It.stands besides the electric light in  the matter of important inventions.  Its wonder is in its simplicity. It is  revolutionary in its effects upon the  progress of the commerce of the world.  "Tlie whole plan of extracting the  valuable material from ore will soon  be changed to the immense advantage  of mankind as a. result of Edison's  work.  GENERAL NEWS  A suitable man to succeed the late  Judge Mabee is being sought, by Mr.  Borden. The name of W. J. Hanna.  provincial secretary in the Ontario  cabinet is mentioned a likely successor.  By proclamation in the Canada Gazette effect is given to the new boundaries of Manitoba which is no longer  the postage stamp province but becomes of equal extent to the average  European state, and having two great-  seaports on Hudson Bay.

EDITORIAL COMMENTS  The re-galvanization of activity  into the operations and aims of the  Great Northern so far as British Columbia is concerned is one of the immediate blessings flowing and to flow  from the defeat of reciprocity. Had  reciprocity carried we might have  bidden good-bye to any hope of getting the road through to the coast for  all time to come. When the Great  Northern cannot get all the north  and.south hauling it wants its owners  will seize the next best opportunity  open for them and get ready to haul  east and west as fast as they can.

I  It   is  pleasing to  note    how  many  people  have hi en re-reading Dickens  during tin-  past two  years  and  will  continue  to  do  so along with other  present day  fiction, for two  or three  years more.     This revival of fondness  for an old favorite is of course due to  the fact ttiat 1012 marks the centenary year of tlie  novelist's  hirth,   and  how much better the world will he   as  a result uf the  revived  interest.     To  contemplate some of Dickens'characters ami to  live  with   them   through  the brief  ufe  of the  story   in   which  the  great  novelist   created   them    to  move is to make ourselves  better  and  more  toierant to  the   weaknesses of  our l'ellnw-buings.    Every book had a  diU'eront  keynote���������-its    own   separ-ale  charm    ami   one    or   more   adorable  characters,    perhaps   not    perfect    in  themselves,   like   Sydney   Carton   in  "Tale of Two  Cities"    or    locksmith  Vardon   in   "Barnahy Hodge"    whose  manly traits so  fai   outweighed   their  faults   that the latter were  forgotten.  These,   with  others  like Tom  Pinch,  Joe  Gargery   anil a dozen or so  more  that might lie enumerated must exert  n wholesome influence  on   the   hearts  and minds of  individual  readers  just  as bis satires on the   boarding schools,  debtors'    prisons,    patent  office   and  chancery court  touched  the  national  conscience and brought about reforms  that seemed impossible  to accomplish  without them.     The  picture of 1110b  rule given  in   "Barnaby lludge"  and  the  national shame    and   abasement  where constituted authority,   through  supineness, fails to discharge its duty  is particularly  instructive and applicable in these days of walking delegates  and political mountebanks.

The first section of the giavity tramway has been giving a little trouble  lately. A broken shaft in the head  gear about ten days ago put the tramway out of commission for a couple of  days and after running for a few days  with the new shaft it developed further trouble but is now doing better.

A washout at Sixteen Mile Creek  and another near Princeton on  Tuesday, interfered with the train  service and the mail from the south  did not reach Hediey until -1 o'clock.  A work train is in the valley with a  steam shovel in the gravel pit at  Stirling Creek, so that an ordinary  washout need not delay traffic very  long.  G. H. Whiteniarr formerly of the  Bank of B.

Mr. I. L. Merrill went out again on  Friday last. 'His stay was brief this  time, and as most of his time was  taken up with the mine he had only  time to make a couple of rounds of the  golf course. One of them was a round  with,.L. C. Rolls which, he won by 1  up, making the round in-19 which is  a hard score to beat over'the Hediey  course. ,He expects to go east to  Maine shortly where some good salmon trout fishing is awaiting him.  It will depend very much on the  train service on Friday, how Hedley-  ites will spend the holiday. Coal-  mont's celebration has broken in on  the established order .of things in the  valley: Heretofore Keremeos had the  day all to themselves and now that  Coalmont has entered the lists to give  Keremeos a run for it each will do  their best to get their share of the  visitors from other centres where.no  sports are being held.  Correspondence in the Nelson News  .tells of progress in building the K. V.  up the west fork of tho Kettle and  states that the grade is now completed  to Bull Creek. Private advices to the  Gazette more than three months ago  spoke of construction trains running  to Peanut Point and the whistle of the  engines at Peanut Point being heard  in Beaver-dell which is about six miles  further on than Bull Creek.

Woods came back to Hediey  last week from Suinmerlaiid where he  has been attending a sitting of the  water commissioners. He had taken  out valuable water rights on Trout  Creek in the earlier days and having  sold the land he was determined to aid  the buyer in protecting the water  rights which went with the land. The  commissioners were J. F. Armstrong  and Gray Donald and they appeared  to have a difficult task to adjust the  various claimants who held rights  under- the old act.

Mr. Armstrong's m.-w foreman is already here and expects his family here  in the near future:.  Although the season is conducive.to  outside rather than indoor entertain-  ment it was a good representative  Kerenieos audience which attended  the entertainment given by ��������� Miss  Traub. assisted by local talent, in the  Town Hall on Thursday evening last.  In other places it is customary for- the  performers to await the - gathering of  the crowd but in Keremeos the crowd  apparently refuses to gather until the  programme commences and injustice  to those who do gather at theappoiht-  tinie we would suggest that in future  these,entertainments be made to start  at the;advertised hour.   ..'.-.  The programme wits divided into  two parts. In the first Miss Traub  gave three readings, beginning with  the humorous selection -'In the  Enemy's Toils" and proceeding to the  hertvier selections of "King Robert of  Sic i|y" and the "Legend of Kingsale".  Miss Traub is entirely at ease upon  the stage, and possesses a most pleasing appearance, while her rendition of  the different difficult selections shows  much natural ability as well as considerable careful training in the field  of elocution. Interspersed with the  readings were musical selections by  Mrs. Innis on the piano and Win.  Daly on the violin which were very  favorably received.  "The Elopment of Ellen" an amusing and farcical little play in three acts  occupied the second part of the program. The small stage was first made  to represent a cosy morning room and  later an attractive corner in a suburban garden. With the limited'means  at command the decorations were  most attractive and artistic and contributed largely to the success of the  performance. Miss Traub as leading  lady ably sustained the favorable impression she had made earlier in the  evening and her interpretation of the  part alloted herself left nothing to he  desired. To Maurice Daly was assigned the most agreeable and leading  male part. It was difficult to believe  that big six foot six-er was the lad we  saw three years ago, a mere stripling,  in the school entertainment. The  secondary parts, Mr Crooker as Richard Ford the devoted husband, Miss  Hattie Innis as the no less devoted  wifey. W. Galbraith, as Max Ten  Eych, Helen Hogg as Dorothy March,  and Harry Etches as the embarrassed  Rector all sustained their parts in a  most creditable manner and developed  many laughable, not to say ridiculous,  situations. We hope to see more of  this form of .entertainment in Keremeos in future.  [The exceeding modesty of the young  rector in the above piay, who in every  da j* life attends to our post olliee and  telephone and keeps this lively burg  represented in the columns of the Gazette, has prevented his writing up a  function in which he took part and  ca-.used the responsibility to fall upon  one who is sadly out of practice in  such work but who was an appreciative attendant, at the play.
