OLIVER & GLADDEN  :o:-  Civil & Mining Engineers  There was a well attended and thoroughly representative gathering of  citizens in Fraseifs Hall on Saturday  night, the 10th inst., for the purpose  of organizing a general hospital in  Hedley.  In the absence of the chairman of  the former meeting, Finlay Eraser was  elected chairman and E. E. Hardwick  took the work of secretary in place of  -F. H. French, who was indisposed.  After disposal of minutes of former  meeting, held on May 17th, the committee reported as follows:  Sept. 16th, 1905.  The'Public Hospital Meeting,���������  Your committee appointed at the  public meeting held on May 17tb, beg-  to report as follows;  AVo have drawn up by-laws and  rules for the Hedley General Hospital  Society,.we have had plans drawn for  a building estimated to cost $2500, and  we hand you herewith, both by-laws  and plan for your approval.  We appointed a committee to run a  refreshment booth in aid of the hospital during the Labor Day celebration,  and they report a profit of $23.-10,  which amount has been turned in to  the hospital funds.  The deeds of the two lots given by  Mr. Hedlund and Mr. Thomas have  been turned over to F. H. French, who  holds them in trust for the hospital.  The amount subscribed towards the  hospital is as follows: By the Yale  Mining Co. and their employees at the  Nickel Plate, $-162.00; by the residents  of Hedley, including the saw-mill emT  ployees and the employees of the Daly  Reduction Co., $640.(X); proceeds of  booth on Labor Day, $23.4.0; total, $1,-  125.-10. Of this sum we estimate $75.00  will not be available. Balance, $1050:-  40. This with the Provincial Government grant of $1000.00 makes a total  of $1050.40 available for the building.  AVe consider another canvass at Hedley and the Nickel Plate mine would  bring in at least $400.00 more.  F. H.-French,  See. of Committee.  This report was accepted on motion,  and a vote of thanks to the committee  passed, in appreciation of their work.  The by-laws were then read, and the  of it like a. step in the wrong direction.  However, in'view of the fact* that the  personnel of the provisional board gave  reason for confidence that no attempt  would be made to run' things' with a  high hand or to'disregard the wishes  or interests of the lViembe'rs, the clause  was allowed to go unaltered,' and the  by-laws'accepted in toto.  Before the by-laws were finally passed the secretary pointed "out that -the  clause referring to service was impracticable as it restricted the holding of  service to the time between 3 and 5 on  Sundays, which was the hour set apart  for visitors.   Dr.   McEwen  disagreed  with him On this point, on the ground  that this was the only time available  as the suppers came on immediately  after 5, and to hold it before 3  woidd  break in on the afternoon's treatment.  These, by-laws, with .the list of the  provisional board of directors, must be  submitted to the legislature,  in any  case, before the customary aid from  the government is paid,  so that the  interests of all concerned will be amply  safe-guarded. p  The directors were requested by motion to^submit a plan of the building  and a copy of the by-laws to the Provincial Government for approval, and  the secretary was instructed to notify  all the members of the provisional  board of their election.  $2.00, in .Advance.  obituary.  Resignation of Mr. Gore.  AY. S. Gore,  Deputy Commissioner  of Lands and AVorks, who has been in  the Lands and AVorks Department for  thirty years, tendered his  resignation  last week.    This is perhaps  the  most  important department of the provincial public service,���������it is, at all events,  the great spending department���������and  the volume of work to be attended to  is very great.   There has in the past  been a great deal of dissatisfaction on  the part of many who had business  with the department.   Some of it was  no doubt real, and much of it groundless, and possibly Mr.  Gore's resignation at this time is the outcome. However, when a man spends  the portion  of his life from thirty-five to sixty-live  years of age in the public service,, the  mere fact of his resignation should not  excite -wonder.    It is said that his successor will in all probability be Goepel  of the Fnahee Department-  Drunken Indians.

Tiik Provisional Boaijd  were : Messrs. G. P. Jones and J no. Me-  Kinnon, from the mine; A. If. Brown,  from the mill; Angus Stewart, from  saw-mill, and Messrs. Fraser, French  and MacIIafne from the town.  In the consideration of the by-laws,  Sub-Sec. (a) of Section (!) came in for  a little discussion, the point beting raised as to whether the purchasers of  treatment tickets, if such were issued,  were to lie considered members of the  hospital society and entitled to a vote  at annual or other general meetings.  But the main bone of contention was  the constitutional point involved in  Section (40), which stated that:  "Any director wishing to repeal,  alter or amend any clause of these bylaws must give one mouth's notice  thereof in writing, and no such alteration shall be made except by a two-  thirds vote of the directors present at  any regular monthly meeting."  It scarcely seemed consistent with  democratic usage to give to the board  of directors the power to  change  by-  fore Magistrate;  on the usual two charges of being-  drunk and of having liquor in his po-  session. The data upon which the  charge was laid was furnished by a  rancher down the river, that Narcisse  had come from Hedley supplied with  two bottles of whiskey and one bottle  of gin, and bad lain around drunk at  Pete Lonzetto's. AVhen the case came  up for hearing, the tales related by  Lonzetto and tint Indian would, but  for sundry glaring contradictions, have  to be considered marvels of innocence.  Narcisse was fined $20 and costs on the  el large of being drunk. The other case  was adjourned to enable Liu  lo procure further evidence.  It is with great sorrow  that Ave record the-death of Mrs.W.-B. Hine (nee  AdaDixey), of Fairview, who, during  her short life in this community,, had  made for herself a host of friends and  .well-wishers,   and    whose'' untimely  death casts a gloom over "all the settlement. Our deepest heartfelt sympathy  is extended to .the  bereaved husband  and we mourn'with him'over his.dead,  cutoff in the' prime., of her life, and  before the' first, year' of., her .happy '  marriage was completed.   -'  At such a time as this comforting  words, seem almost an insult to the  afflicted-and the. ordinary platitudes  of religion seem a farce so that alL we  can do is silently' and- by our actions  prove the' depth of our-interest and  sympathy and trust to the latent herot  ism of man's nature to bear without  fliuching, the pain and grief that must  be borne by him alone and which cani-  not be mitigated.or. avoided untilthe  kindly influence of time shall alleviate  the heart-felt bitterness of his bereavement.  Mrs. Hine's death is particularly sad  as her marriage,took place only about  six months ago at her home in Dennis  Powis, Wales, and she came out imbued with the empire-building sphitof  the Briton, and with her husband-love  far over the many miles of ocean1 and  strange land- to build a happy home  for her heart's-love in the country of  his adoption aiid to do her duty as a  daughter of the mighty mother of  nations.  Hardly had she established herself in  the home she was making, and where  she was assembling all those tokens of  comfort, elegance and home which only a wife can provide,  when she was ,  stricken down by sickness which led .  to-peritonitis and  terminated inner-,  death.   Dr. White, assisted by Dr. McEwen of Hedley, was in attendance.  The funeral arrangements were in  chargeof Mr. William Dalrymple.  The stores and offices were all closed  in town and all the residents joined  the funeral cortege as it passed to the  church and thence to the Fairy iew-  cemetery-where the remains were interred.  The Rev. Chas. AVhiting read the  Church of England burial service and  preached a sermon. ,..-.. v   ���������  The pall-bearers were, Messrs. Bate,  Parham, Parkinson, Dalrymple, Jones  and Lee. The coffin and the grave  were smothered in beautiful flowers,  arranged as emblems and boquets sent  by friends and sympathizers, of which  the following is a partial list:  Cross, Mr. and Mrs. Brown; wreath'.

Smith met with a painful  accident down at Kerenieos this week, !  where   she   had   gone   to   pick   fmiit.  When standing on a box it tipped over i  and she fell heavily on  top  of  it.    In  the fall a nail tore a   nasty   wound   in I  the calf of her leg,   which   wound   required nine stitches.    The   long drive  to Hedley, to have the wound properly  dressed, must have been trying on her  strength, and it will no doubt be some  time   before she  has fully  recovered  from the effects of the mishap.  A. V. Stewa.it, of the insurance lirm  of Ceperly, Rounsefell <!c Co., was in  town last week.

The early hour chosen for the wedding  was to allow the happy couple to take  the early morning boat.  con-  Heriuann ISrb, representing a (toast  insurance firm, was in town last week  and had strong opinions on the necessity of fire wardens doing their duty  by inforcing safe-guards against fire.  It is said that he did a little lire warden work himself while here by. threatening to cancel policies if more precaution were not taken.  Messrs.

As it is,  the.���������'mariner  in  which   securities   have   been   juggled  with must make policy-holders wonder  where they stand.  And now what lesson is there in all  this for Canadian' policy-holders in  these companies. Our Canadian companies are straight; their management  is more economical; their securities are  gilt-edged, and not to be used as footballs or rigged out either like fleas or  pawns to be here to-day and another  place tomorrow, according as they are  used by Yankee sharpers in playing  their games of '-frenzied finance."  AVhat kind of business is it then, to say  nothing of patriotism, for Canadians  to patronize these foreign institutions,  after all, they are learning about them.  People said that the Equitable disclosures would result in a house-cleaning for the others.- But did it .in the  case of the New York Life ? Instead  of it being u .scrubbing' brush that was  used it appears to have been a dressing  of pink alabastine to hide the filthand  grease spots, and they didn't'lay it on  thick enough.  Notice of Forfeiture.  INSURANCE INVESTIGATIONS.  The. life insurance question is at presents very live issue across the border.  For'the last quarter of a  century the  public have placed the  leading life insurance companies on   the  same high  pedestal as C:esar\s wife, and it came  as a  very rude  shock  when  Thomas  Lawson shattered the idol by declaring  that three leading companies of the  United  States,   the    Equitable,    New-  York  Life ������oul  Mutual Life,  were in  ma/ny respects what an insurance company .should not be, and  that  the  interests 'of   policy-holders  were   being  imperilled by the dishonest practices  of the managers and directors.    John  A. MeCallj-the  manager of the New  York Life, took' serious exception   to  this indictment  by Lawson,  and  the  wordy war which ensued did not help  to restore  to   Mr. McCall  any of the  lost   confidence    attending    Lawson's  first attack, for he emerged therefrom  with   " wings a'droop like a rained-on  fowl."     Lawson's hot shot produced  painful internal disorders  within   the  companies themselves and only a few  months elapsed when an investigation  into the affairs  of the Equitable revealed a state of l-ottenness   at which  even the. New York Life, which   Law-  son said was the  worst  of  the   three,  held up their hands  in  horror.    This  sent Lawson's stock as a life insurance  prophet  soaring   and   McCall's   bona  fides slumped in   a  corresponding  degree.    The  agents of the New  York  Life���������general, special and petty���������-were  kept so  busy saying   "not us, not us"  and   pointing  to  tlie   Equitable  that  they had to hit  their  superiors  for a  higher rate of commission to  make up  for tilt; shrinkage in volume, of business  being  written.     That   is  the  way  in  which Lawson put it in   a   subsequent  broadside, in which he told of junketings of agents by the company to keep  theni in good humor for all  of  which  tin;  policy-holders   had   to  pay.     For  the  truth of this   latter statement, by  Lawson,   \vr   have   corroborative  evidence from a   long-legged agent of the  New York Life,   from   the Boundary,  who did Hedley in   May   last,  stating  that he wa.s on his way to a, free blowout at Los Angeles,   California, which  the company were  giving, his  travel-  expenses and all being paid. The hotel  fare here didn't suit him,   although  it  appeared to  satisfy  other  visitors to  the town who represented more dollars  in mining and railroading than he represented   mills.     But this  is of no  importance.  Finding that they couldn't get away  from the damning indictment of being  grouped with the Equitable, they tried  a game of bluff by calling for an investigation and thus making a virtue of a  necessity, for the investigation would  have come anyway. Even with all  these months to prepare for it the disclosures made at the investigation  in  There.is one Toronto.man. who isaiot  very popular,to-day. ���������;on the wheat  growing prairie provinces. He is Mav-  or of the chair'of Political Ecoiioinyin  Toronto University who was asked by  the British Board of Trade to prepare a. report on the economic resources of tlie Northwest .and who  placed the ultimate'annual production  at 2-17,000,000 bushels. Now as Prof.  Saunders director of theDominion Experimental "farm has placed it at  S12,000,000, and Hugh McKellar, of  Winnipeg, the" deputy minister of  agriculture in tlie Manitoba Government has placed it at 1,050,000,000  bushels, there is evidently .a. very wide  difference, of opinion.-'- The Toronto  ���������World treats Mayor to a. somewhat  vigorous roast for the report, but not  a whit more than be deserves. If the  political economy taught in Toronto  University is proportionately as small  as that in this particular--report" of its  professor, then it is quite evident that  the university authorities have been  riding the economy horse to death  when they selected so pigmy a specimen to fill so important a chair.

The plant  suffered considerably  but was not a  -total loss,  Mr. C. F. Packard, bookeeper for the  Hedley Funiber Co. went over to Grand  Forks this, week and expects to bring  his family back with  him.  Orovillc has a brickyard, and dreams  of tall chimneys are already disturbing  the peaceful slumbers of the inhabit-,  ants. '      ' :  Tn the evenings and mornings there  has been quite a pronounced suggestion of autumn in the air, during, the  past week.  Fredric Keffer, manager of the B. C  Copper Co. at Greenwood was in town  ���������on his way to Copper Mountain on a  visit of inspection.  The Tariff Commission was sitting  in Nelson last week and the Railway  Commission in Westminister and Vancouver this week.

' '.  I  If there is no railroad building in  operation as yet in the Sinnlkanicen  on this side of the International boundary, the ranchers down in the lower  part of the valley can at all events  hear the blasting of the construction  gangs further down the. valley in  Washington.  Six men came down last week from  Copper Mountain where they had been  working on the Sunset. It is the intention of the B. C. Copper Co:, who  hold the bond on the Sunset group, to  do considerable development by diamond and with that in view, some of  the present development crew were  laid off.  J. A. Irvine, of Kendall, Montana,  was in town on Tuesday. He was on  his way to Copper Mountain, and, as  he represents diamond drill men, his  visit to Copper Mountain at the same  time as that of Manager Keffer, w.os  ���������evidently'with a view to making arrangements for taking in a drill to further prospect the Sunset properties. '._  J. F-. Royer came in on the 'flyer' on  Monday night, going back again Tuesday morning. The running of the  stage through Fair-view is proving a  great convenience, and the driver does  not consider it any harder to make.  Then; is no word yet of the P. O.

He is looking over the  Similkameen, and when in Hedley  renewed acquaintance with former  Ymirites, among" whom are Mr. Clare  and his family. Mr. 'Rotherham reports late finds in the Ymir mine which  are likely to improve materially the  well-being of that camp, and reports  from Kootcna.y papers also point to an  early-return .of the dividend-paying  period.  in the morning as well.  Penticton was full of music on Monday night. The orchestra was an impromptu affair, and was much after  the style of one of Hedley's, minus.  Pete Heldstab's soul-iacker. Penticton was for the nonce hilarious, and  not even a detachment of the Colonel's  Mounted Police could have restored  order or seriousness.  Rev. E. P. Fie welling the new vicar  sent to take, charge of the new parishes  of Hedley and Princeton, arrived in  Hedley on Sarurday evening's stage  and held service in Fraser's hall on  Sunday night when, notwithstanding  the short notice given, there was a  large congregation out to hear an impressive service. The reverend gentleman will reside in Hedley, but will  hold fortnightly services in Princeton.  The teams engaged in hauling lumber froin^ the Hedley Lumber Op's  mills to town are kept busy'getting  lumber enough on hand to keep the  various builders moving. One of the  outfits has a five-horse team, not in  the shape of a spiked six-horse team,  but having three lead horses abreast,  and hauling a. trailer. It is an odd-  looking outfit but is moving good-  sized loads of lumber.  The Hedley Orchestra are 'giving a.  concert in the hall to-morrow (Friday)  evening. The object is to raise funds  to purchase other ' instruments- and  music. The orchestra have contributed in no small degree to the entertainment of the people of Hedley and they  deserve the hearty support of tint town  at any entertainment which they may  give. A dance is to be given at' the  end of the entertainment for all who  may wish to stay.  Ivelownais moving to organize a  brass band. Hedley should keep in  line. Apart from the pleasure to be  derived from such an institution, there  is the investment feature. Some may  think it far fetched to-class a brass  band as an investment, but everything  in the shape of an attraction to the  town is an investment and a good one.  Hand your names to the secretary of  the orchestra on the scheme outlined  in last week's Gazette.  Geo. Cahill has been doing some  hunting and prospecting on the Ash-,  nola for a few weeks past, returning  on Saturday. He killed a couple of  big horn and made a location on a.  quartz lead that appeared to be well  mineralized.

A fine new Heintzman piano has  been placed in Fraser's Hall which  will prove a very great convenience as  well as source of pleasure to ourcitizens.  The labor involved in lugging an instrument up and down stairs was always a nuisance that had to be borne  and added materially to the expense.  Those holding entertainments from  this out will be. rid of that trouble and  will not begrudge the fee charged for  the use of the piano, which will be  more than saved to them in the greater convenience.  The keenest sympathy is felt for Dr.  Coristine V. S. of Osoyoos who is ill  with typhoid fever, and his family arc  also all down with the desease, two of  the younger children being said to be  in a very critical state. Dr. Coristine  is veterinary inspector and quarantine officer for the Dominion Government at Osoyoos. There being no  telegaapuic nor postal communication  nearer than Fairview, and the doctor  for the Okanagan Valley having to divide his attention between Fairview  and Penticton, DrCoristine's position  is a, trying one. \  BORN  Pahkinson.���������At Fairview, B.
