Otlawn, May 15.���������The great Parliamentary struggle over the Naval Bill  reached a finality shortly before mid-"  night, when the third reading of the  measure was adopted after a comparatively quiet division on a vote of 100  to 68, a government majority of 32.  The six mopths' "hoist which was  moved early in the e'vening by Sir  Wilfrid Laurier had 'previously been  rejected on a vote of 103 to 70, a government majority of 83.  The differences in the two votes was  due to the fact that one Conservative  and two Liberal members who missed  the first division arrived in time to record their vote on the main motion.  HOW NATIONALISTS  VOTED  The divisions were not on strictly  party lines. Five Nationalists, Achim,  Boulay, Bareette, Behnere and Guil-  bault, stood up with the Opposition on  both occasions, while Col. H. H. McLean of Qiiuens-Siinbury was counted  on the side of the Government:  During the first division the Nationalists who stood by the government  were greeted with ironical -Liberal  cheers when they rose to vote, while  Colonel McLean got a salvo of Conservative cheers when he registered  his vote in favor of the government's  policy.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier spoke against  ���������the bill again on the debate of the  third reading in addition to his speech  in favor of his six months' hoist  amendment hut he brought out no  new point or anything except to reiterate his hostility to any effective aid  on Canada's part. At no time during*  consideration of the question has lie'  lost aii"'opportunity to eiiibarass the  government unci spoke as long as the  rules would allow him and sometimes  when they would not lie was on .his  feet trying to impose upon the speaker's indulgence.  Mr. Borden also spoke with force  and at considerable length. He said  his idea of Canada's duty to the Empire .differed radically from that of Sir,  Wilfrid Laurier. ���������  He said that with the Opposition  .leader in .control, .Canada could not)  render1 ���������������������������effective aid to the -Empire;  He ,believed that when half of the  naval force's of the 'Empire have been  withdrawn to protect the heart of the  Empire, the time had come when'  Canadians should not quibble but  should have come forward and done  something worthy of themselves.  -During.the day severaliarne,ndmon,ts  offered by.the opposition.were.discuss-  ed.and rejected on minorities ranging  i'rom 39 to 45.  Hon. Martin Burrell also contributed to the debate at this point, He  said: "That this bill had been introduced into.the House five months ago  and that now in the course of a few  hours the members would have to give  their final vote. There rested upon  them a deep imd grave responsibility.  It was a regrettable fact.that a matter  affecting the defence of tho Empire  and world relationship -would be ilia'de  a subject of party politics.  Mr. Biirrell desired to deprecate  statements,to the effect that the state-  men in Great Britain are not actuated  by a desire to work out the problem  of defence without interfering with  the Overseas Dominions.  Mr. Borden stands out as a sincere  and consistent supporter of his own  views iis well as of the views of tlie  people. - He;believes that Sir Wilfrid  .Laurier would have played the better-  part had he decided to give his support  to these proposals.  In conclusion, Mr. Burrell declared  that the government's proposal would  meet with the approval of the great  majority of the people of British Columbia.  WESTERN CROP PROSPECTS  General  Outlook Good  But Season Two  Weeks Later Than Usual  Winnipeg, May 17th.���������According to  reports received from 200 points in the  Canadian prairie west, seeding is practically completed. About sixty percent, of the wheat is up. A few "points  report three inches high, but the majority says that it is just through the  "ground. A few points report "wheat  "as having been frozen by severe  weather. The average of the reports  show the condition 'of the wheat to-be  two weeks later than in -1912, but seed'  to have gone in on a better seed bed  and with more moisture. About half-  a-dozen points report too much moisture. Four report an actual need of  rain and the balance report sufficient  moisture to start the'ero'p and carry  it well along into June and soine even  to July.  About 50  percent,   of the oats and  A HAZARDOUS LOAN  European  Financiers To Supply Money  for- Repairing Mexican Railway.  London, May 17,.���������-A Mexican Government loan of .$35,000,000 for the  restoration of the railroads in that  country is understood to have been  practically arranged here and in Paris  The term's have not yet become available, but it is stated that the'v are  high. The Mexican agents aie endeavoring to secure fifty million dollars  mor:e to be utilized for governmental  purposes.  Lord pojy.d'ray has been .active in  the negotiations, but not through  Coutts Bank as previously reported.'  LOCAL NEWS  25 percent, of tlie barley, is seeded,  but a great many points report that  plowing is still to be done for these  grains, , and quite a number of points  state that plowing has actually been  retarded by the heavy frost's at night.  In spite of the fact,that the season  is two weeks later than in 1912, the  reports indicate that the general condition is very fail, but the need fur-  warm, bright weather is imperative.  HEDLEY'S FIRST  CRICKET MATCH  WOULD  RE-ADJUST BOUNDARY  Joint  Resolution  Introduced in House of  Representatives at Washington  Washington, May 17th.���������A proposal  to cede to Canada the coast strip of  Southeastern Alaska, 536 miles long,  and in some places eight or- ten iniles  wide, was made in a joint resolution  introduced by Representative Stevens  of -Texas," at the request of the Universal. Peace Union .a t'iPhiladelphia.  The resolution requires President  Wilson .to negotiate with Great Britain for a commission to investigate  :,the possibility .of rectifying the boundary of Southeastern Alaska, "for the  benefit of both parties."  The preamble sets, forth that the  border should be adjusted to remove  the .unnatural boundary by which the  Yukon Territory^ tlie northern half of  .British .Columbia .and almost the entire MacKenzie Basin, an eggregate  area nearly as large as the states east  of the Mississippi River, are shut off  by the coast strip from free use of the  niost.'direct.route^to the Pacific.  The resolution suggests that such a  move would set an example in the policy of mutual cqric'iission that would  constitute "a glorious achievement in  history."  GOLF TOURNAMENT  E. E.

NEW FIELD  FOR NICKEL  Britain Still :Has It���������Tasmania Is Latest  Discovered'Field  Sydney, N. S. W��������� May 17. ��������� The  world's supply of nickel is likely to be  largely augriient'-d as the result of the  discovery of a lode of ore which has  just been discovered in Tasmania. The  lode reaches for a mile and a half and  seenis to be exceptionally rich. So far  it has been only partially sampled.  The first series/of matches in Hediey  fin- the golfing season between teams  captained by President and Vice-president wits wound up last week and ended in a rather pronounced verdict for  .the vice-president's forces. Although  the president hud tho first choice he  was not as successful as the viee president in gauging the play of the other  mernbeis of the club Out of liine  single matches which made up the  series the vice-prei-'dent's side won  seven and a half of them and the  president's fine and a half.  The draw match .which gave a half  to each side was that between the  two leaders who .played to a tie on  each of the two rounds, but the scores  made by each tin the occasion were de-  cidely punk and showed that neither  of them owed his position in the club  to the character of his play. The one  game .which went to the president's  side was a defaulted game  The swap match which has been  talked of for some time between the  cricket club andthe baseball club has  been pulled off���������-at least the cricket end  of it. What remains to be told when  the baseball installment comes off,  only the fates can .tell.  The pitch was simply awful and until a little  improvement can   be made  in it the chances for maining arc too  great.     Capt. J.  Howe won  the toss  and  sent   the   baseballers   to the bat.  The  cricket  bowlers were  Howe and  Barrett and  they were merciful and  bowled   some full pitch balls  and easy  lobs to  get the baseballers  started  at  slugging before they began to tighten  down.     The side   was disposed  offer  thirty runs   a,   liberal   percentage  of  which   were byes  due to  ragged fielding and  bad  pegging on the  part of  the cricket players, very few of whom  had  handled' a .ball for years.    It was  ftinny all  the way through   for  the  baseballers   didn't   know    the   rules;  there was bnl.y.oh'e umpire.and he had  too  much  to do to  kei-p track of the  overs  and discharge the other duties  of the office  and all the while conduct  a cricketkindergarten.    The baseballers   had  no bowler   to help  them   out  and  they tried overhand  bowling as  being  most closely  allied to  the baseball throw.     So closely allied did they  keep it that  the biggest percentage of  their offerings  were   throws   at   the  wicket  pure arid  simple, but all .were  out for a good  time and  everything  went.     Neither did   the scorer understand  how to  keep the cricket   tally  and  hence   the   baseballers'   first  attempt  was not recorded  in due shape  to go down in history.    Not until the  cricketers went to bat and had time, to,  instruct the scorer- on the keeping of  the -tally.was   there any accurate attempt further than to get the  total  number of  runs  made   by   the   side.  Only one inning was  played and  the  baseballers were all but for 30 runs  while the cricketers  had 55 rims for  six .wickets  with  some of their best  bats to the good.    The  scorer claims  to have lost his  tally and individual  scores are not'available.  The slaughter of the innocents will  begin when the baseball end of the  swap is pulled off.  There was a stabbing case at Princeton last week when Orr who figured  in the Labor Day money case here as  the loser of the wad, is now in trouble  as-the one Avho did the stabbing. The  mair who was stabbed was A. Phelps  and reports say that he brought it on  himself by his pugnacity and bullying.  He had followed Orr around for some  time and struck hiiii at different times  and finally he had Orr down when the  latter used his knife. He received a  hearing before magistrates Thomas  and Waterman, and, electing to be  tried summarily, was given a week  in gaol.  A little excursion party from Pen-,  Lie ton came through last week in  A. Thompson's car���������the machine that  went through the barbed fence a few  weeks ago The party consisted of T.  IS. Naish. A. E. Kay, P. Cresswell aud  H. Richardson, with 'A. Thompson  driving. They went through to Tulameen stopping at Hediey both going  and returning. One of the party, Mr.  Cresswell, was a golfer and had an  early morning round of the links while  here. He expressed the hope that lie  might be able to induce some more of  the golfers from Penticton to come  over and try their hand on the Hediey  links. His partner in the early morning round was Dick .Tames, secretary  of the Hediey club.  Charles E. Prior of Denver arrived  in Hediey last week and will take  charge of the diamond drilling in prospecting the new propei ties which Mr.  Beam has under option. Mr. Prior is  from the. Colorado School of Mines  and will have an opportunity here of  getting unique -experience in field  geology for he will run up against a  problem or series of problems here  that geological students rarely meet  and he will have the advantage of a  lot of valuable data which had to be  worked out bit by bit by those who  had first to do with the opening up of  properties in the camp. While Mr.  Beam will take the general supervision and direction himself the detail  and technique of operations will fall  .to Mr. Prior.  Mr. T..Walter Beam has been a. busy  ;inan for several weeks past getting  things in readiness to begin tearing  lip the ground in prospecting the  Bradshaw and Duffy groups and other  properties he has under bond. Roads  and trails have had to be cut and they  now have a trail a considerable distance down the canyon. Part of the  pieparations is the. laying of 11000 feet  of .pipe line which represents 5500 feet  of air line and 5500 feet of water line  from the Nickel Plate working over to  the points where drilling will be commenced, within the next few days.  The weather has been very .much  against them and a fresh supply of  snow is on hand each morning with  unfailing regularity. Mr. Beam expects to start for Denver the beginning of the week and will bring back  Mrs. Beam and daughter who will  spend a couple of months or so in the  Siuiilkameen during the summer.

'       0  IN  THE SUPREME COURT OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  AVhether  the provisions   of the new  Underwood   'tariff' bill   are   wise    or  otherwise,' President   Wilson   and his  .' cabinet have proved true to the pledges  they gave  to the people Jot" the United  States befoie their election.    They did  not  promise.' free trade,   nor yet   to do  away with protection but they declared that the present tariff' was burdensome and had gone beyond the bounds  required   for honest or  necessary protection of industries, and they promised a revision of  the tariff down wards.  It was of course useless to-expect that  the changes  deemed necessary   would  be accepted by all, and particularly by  the  interests   affected,   and   there has  been    vigorous   protest   from   mariy  quarters.     Contrast their attitude in  the   matter  with  that of the Liberal  party in this country, which from 187S  until they found a better  vote catcher  in the  race and   religion issue of 189(5,  never   failed   for   a 'moment   to  rail  against anything-.in the tariff which  had even the semblance of protection,  but  who on   their accession   to power  in 1890,   left the tariff practically as it  was   and in   some cases  increased  it,  any reductions that were made, in the  1897 revision being of  the most trivial  and unimportant character.  Men who  have the  courage of their convictions  and   will  practise   what  they  preach  must    comniard   respect   from   those  who prize sincerity and whether he is  wrong  or  right in   what   the   Underwood bill is meant to accomplish President  Wilson lias  given evidence  that  he is of the right stamp.

A. J. Huneke, '.inining engineer, of  .Los Angeles was a visitor to Camp  Hediey hist week and went out again  on Monday. British Columbia is not  new to Mr. Huneke, but this is the  first time lie has been in this portion  of the province and on this occasion  he was very favorably impressed. He  was fortunate in having both the  pleasure and the advantage in meeting  here an old friend in Mr-. T. Walter  Beam who showed him around and  gave'him an opportunity of seeing  what there is of interest here. He  thought the camp was not as well advertised on the outside as it should be  and this is a point that resident'- of  the camp should take to heart and endeavor to remedy. Having found his  way here he wants to see more of the'  camp and in the future he will doubtless be back again.  |W^^^  NOTICE  SIMILKAMEEN LAN*!

The Hediey Trading Co. opened out  in the Shatford building on Monday  morning and already their customers  have had evidence of the good intentions of the new concern in sundry  material reductions which will help to  , cheapen the cost of living.  Hediey baseballers are going down  to Keremeos on the 24th to help celebrate and incidentally to have a whack  at that prize money, which rumor-  says is ti foregone conclusion- must be  fought out between Penticton and  Oroville. However, we'll see what  we'll see.  Mike Costello was up the valley a  week ago and reports somethiug very  like,a mining boom in the dipper- valley and at other- Tulameen points.  Some, silver lead propositions in Summit Camp, now called Leadville, have  been attracting outside capital and  ' hopes are entertained for another  Coeur d' Alenes in that vicinity.  Hediey is to have moving pictures,  not by one night irresponsible itinerants as before, but a regular establish-  '. :cd thing.    J. K.

A serious runaway was caused in  Penticton by a horse taking fright at  i\, wildly thrown ball by some ballplayers who were practicing in the  street and the chief of police has put  ��������� a summary stop to all ball-playing in  the streets. In Hediey the ball-tossers  still have the right-of-way but they  should exercise some care and consideration for- the liberty allowed them.  The song service given in the church  on Sunday evening last in the ab-  . sence of any church service anywhere  in the town, was .much enjoyed, Mrs.  A. Creelinan presided and the sacred  numbers consisted of congregational  singing and selections by the choir,  B with a male quartette and solos, by  ���������- Mrs. Bysouth and Mr. Farr. The  building was filled with an appreciative congregation and all appeared to  enjoy the exercises.  Dr. Jackson, dentist, of Penticton  came down from Princeton orr Thursday last and remained a couple of  days, leaving for home on Saturday.  i Owing to ti hitch in the publicity arrangements no notice was given the  Gazette to announce his coming and  no notices were put up until after he  reached here. As a result he was gone  again before a good many in town  knew he was here mid there was disappointment all round, both for himself-and fur others.  E. D. Boeing and his men came  down from Granite Creek last week  where they had been building a bridge  over the Tulameen for the B. C. government. The job is not yet completed but they had done all that they  can do with safety at the present time  and deemed it prudent to defer putting in any falsework for the erection  of the superstructure .until after high  water. All the framing is done and  as soon as the high water is over it  will not take long to finish up.  "TAKE Notice that W. li.

A very fine musical  programme was provided, and Mrs. L.  A. Keeler- had a school of "dear- little  tots" who went through some wonderful classical pieces. Refreshments were  delightfully served by the hostess and  altogether the evening was a splendid  success in every respect.

We  join along with his many friends in  hoping .that, he will have a pleasant  journey and safe return.  On Sunday  last a number   of young  people  undertook a  rather  strenuous  mountain, climb.     Starting   at   noon  the party commenced to climb towards  the Barcello  range  at a point a few  yards  behind W. G. Mattice's  house,  and did'not stop for lunch   until  two  o'clock   when the  ladies turned  out a  fine spread  for the  hungry climbers  with them.     After  lunch   the  party  struck  back farther in the   hills until  the   basaltic   columns   were  reached.  Here we  would like to  add that these  columns are a very  interesting sight.  How   this peculiar  volcanic substance  was formed as  it is, would be hard to  say, for dozens of these columns standing  side  by  side are of a.-five  sided  formation,  while 'within a. short distance dozens  more are  six sided.    It  would he an interesting study as well  as a bracing   rnoimtain  climb for any  who have not had the opportunity, to  make .the   trip.   After-   many   photographs were taken of the party around  the columns, they started back on the  old  trail   towards  the  Richter  ranch  arriving  in Keremeos at seven in the  evening all a little  tired but delighted  with the trip.
