JONES IS PROMOTED  From Mine Superintendent of the Nickel  Plate He Takes Full Local Charge  of Mine and Works  Vernon, B. C.  The end of last week had forHedley-  ites a new and interesting item of  conversation when the chief topic was  the change in local management of  .the Nickel Plate mine and works.  Mr. G. P. Jones tlie superintendent of  the mine 'who has seen the property-  grow from a few prospect holes and  .tunnels in 1900 to its present proud  position when it takes rank as the  leading gold producer of the province,"  and who like jEneas of- old can lookback on  it all and like hinr exclaim  "ET, QUORUM   PARS   MAGNA    FUI"    IS  elevated to a position which is to be  designated General Superintendent  of Mines and Works of the' Hedley  Gold Mines Co. *:   '  The editor was over at Fairview attending the Pioneers' meeting when  the word got but and has been unable  to learri since how it was given to the  public, for it appears that there had  been some neglect in the matter of the  customary official bulletin ; but never-'  theless the news itself was true. As'  soon as final transfer is made Mr..'  Jones will enter on his new duties, if  they can be called new in his case, inasmuch as it has been pretty well  understood that so far as the mine is  concerned tbe. responsibilities appertaining thereto have for a considerable period rested on his shoulders anyway, and the' Daly estate will probably never know (as they do not appear to have done so in the past) how  much they owe him for shielding  them, in his own diplomatic way, from  the worst cori.sequences of their own  reckless folly.  The hew office apparently will differ  only in  name from  that which has  heretofore   borne' the   high-sounding  title "general manager",  except that  perhaps  the duties 'will be. somewhat  'more strenuous   and the powers no  less^    In" this change there is evident  on the part of the hew owners a slight  amount of iconoclastic irreverence for  sinecures,    inasmuch as   the   highest-  paid  billet on  the job is practrcally  wiped out of existence.     But this is  only business,  and, it was to do the  business   of   mining   profitably   that;'  .they came here.  . Mr. Jones has the Gazette's congratulations in securing this position'  of trust from men who have had so  good ah opportunity to judge: of his  work, and we believe he will serve his  future employers as faithfully as he  has those he has  been serving for so J  COLONIAL GOLD MINING CO,     |G.N.R. SURVEYORS TAKE FIELD.  Lays Off Mining Force , at the Apex���������  Diamond Drill and Compressor  to be Installed.  Last week W. J. Forbes and Ross  Allen returned from the Apex where  mining "operations were suspended  pending the introduction of machinery.  The work during the summer months  was reported satisfactory by representatives of the company and it is  their intention now todo the remaining  exploratory work which they have in  view and also the necessary develop-  ment.with machinery.  The near approach of winter Avhich  in that locality is atterrded with considerable depth of snow, and the  amount of work to be done before a  mining plant could be properly installed and housed, made it inadvisable" for them to undertake it this fall  and, hence the decision to defer it  until next year.- The last week's work  bad been the most successful of all in  the matter of showing up the ore.  The adit being driven to connect with  the bottom of the shaft on the Acacia  was into a fine body of excellent ore  and other surface work had' also been  most satisfactory. Evidently the  Colonial people an; sufficiently impressed with the merits of the property they have got hold- of, to warrant  them to lay their plans for future  operations on a scale that will save  time and money for them.

The Visit of the President will be Feature  of Next Week.  many years past.  CANADA'S FIRE BILL FOR 1968  Some  Figures Compiled by the Forestry  Branch to Show What Carelessness is Costing Us.  The forestry branch of the interior  department at Ottawa has issued an  interesting bulletin dealing with the  damage caused by forest fires in Canada in 1908. The bulletin, which was  prepared by H. R. McMillan, assistant  inspector of Forest reserves, shows  that during the year 835 forest fires of  serious proportions occurred in the  Dominion, upward of 188,000 acres  were burned over-, causing the destruction of over 56,000,000 feet of timber,  valued, including mills and improve-  ments.at $25,500,000. Twenty-one lives  were lost as a result of the forest fires  (all in British Columbia), and 2404  persons were thrown out of employment. The cost of the fires to the  public was nearly $300,000. Quebec  province headed the list with 250 fires.  British Columbia came second with  235. In Quebec, however, the value  of the timber destroyed was very  slight. In British Columbia 40,000,000  feet were destroyed at .a loss.of $25,-  ip0,000, or over 90 per cent,  of the to-  Seattle, Sept. 22.���������The visit of President Taft will be a feature of the week  from Monday, September 27th to  Sunday, October 3rd, at the Alaska-  Yukbn-Pacific Exposition. According  to" A. D. Charlton, assistant general  passenger, agent of' the Northern  Pacific, the travel to the Fair will  reach its highest .point during this  week. ,  A brilliant programme, has been  planned; [for . President' Taft's visit,  Thursday. He: will be banqueted in  the New York State building, escorted through the Exposition grounds in  a magnificent automobile parade, arid  tendered an elaborate reception in the  ���������Washington State building in the  evening. The president will address  the people of the Northwest in the  natural amphitheatre of the fair,  which seats 17,000 people, in the afternoon. After the reception in the  evening -Mr. Taft has consented to ride  tlie goat as an initiate into the Arctic  brotherhood. One' hundred other  candidates will be admitted into the  northern order along with the president.  The opening of the livestock show on  Monday to be continued until October  9th, will be the largest event of the  programme of the last month at the  Exposition. More than two thousand  head of'thoroughbred stock have been  entered, and in the poultry department more than five thousand birds  and fifteen hundred pigeons. The  facilities for the handling of the livestock are the rrrost modern that have;  ever been provided at any Exposition,  over $100,000 having been expended.  On Monday Chief Eegineer J. H.  Kennedy arrived in town with Mr. C.  F. Russel, a locating engineer who  came in from Spokane, and proceeded  up the river bound for the summit of  the Coquihalla from which the party  will work towards Princeton in a revision of the line located about three  years ago.  Mr. Russel's party will consist of  fifteen or sixteen men, with Arthur  Black as level-man, and another transit man and draughtsman are, expected in from St. Paul in a day or two.  A. R. Green will be chef and look after  that part of the expedition.  This circumstance does not look  particularly hopeful for the' tunnel  project nor does it go to confirm the  rumors of any contracts having been  let beyond Princeton, for it is not at  all likely that anything can be done in  that direction until a revise of the location is made and approved. If they  were going on with the tunnel at the  present time they would not be disposed to put in any more time  along the Otter River nor go skying  after any of those passes up in the  Cascades, about which there has been  so much discussion. Of course the  Great Northern have been building  and running railroads long enough to  be supposed to know what is be.st for  them, but even if they now take the  roundabout route by the West Fork  of the Otter and go over the summit  near the headwaters of the Coldwater  and tbe Coquihalla which rivers flow  in opposite directions, it is a very sure  thing that if they attach any strategic  importance to the V. V. & E. as a  route to the British Columbia coast,  they will yet drive, this tunnel which  will cut off thirty miles in distance as  well as lowering the grade very materially.  Meanwhile it is reassuring to see a  force of engineers at work revising the  line as it shows that completion of the  unbuilt portion between Princeton  and Hope is beginning to loom up  larger in the minds of the authorities  at St. Paul.

The heavy loss in British  Columbia was due to the great fire in  the Crow's Nest Pass country, which  destroyed Ferriie and entailed a heavv  loss of life. A fire on Vancouver- island  it is estimated, caused the destruction  of 21,000,000 feet of timber.  Moreton Frewen, the eminent English bimetalist. has entered suit on behalf of himself and an English syndicate against the Grand Trunk Pacific  Tow'nsite and Development Company  for breach of contract in the sale of  1000 Prince Rupert lots. Mr. Frewen's  claim is that he was to be allowed to  pick and choose the lots for himself,  but found that he was allowed to exercise   no   choice,   further   that   the  prices for the lots were to be the upset  prices as fixed for the public auction.  The prices named by the company  were, however, those which obtained  at the auction and while the conten-  tion was proceeding the lots were put  upon the market at Prince Pupert and  sold to other buyers.  .(British Calforniari)  Germany's hostility turns out to be  the greatest of blessings to the mother  country and to the British .Empire.  The Kaiser's threat to wrest from  Britannia the sceptre of the sea has  brought about in a day that British  Imperial unity which has been prayed  for and worked for by patriots for  long years with slow progress.  That sentiment which was created  by the events of the South African  war has been developed into definite  action by Germany's challenge. There  is no mistaking the earnestness, or the  value, of a colonial co-operation that  tenders Dreadnoughts, and raises,  equips and maintains regiments of  soldiers for service under the flag  anywhere. The British Empire is  now one country, one people, so far as  the outside world is concerned���������and  the most powerful on land as well as  on the water. And peaceful prosperous  ditys are before it, for it is in a position to successfully resist any interference with its natural and glorious  progress.  If it were permissable to be grateful  to another for his enmity, British  gratitude would be due Germany, for  that country has, unwittingly but  nevertheless effectively, proved to be  Britain's greatest friend. The lesson  of mutual dependence was not to be  learned by mother country and colonies by any amount of reasoning and  picturing within the family, it seems,  but had to be forced upon them by a  great common danger threatening  without.  Germany is thwarted, her hopes  blasted, but her vain ambition has  served a purpose. Let us hope a not  less worthy purpose than if her ambition had been realized.  Gate Hotel.  As most of the members of the  society reside in the Boundary district and the Similkameen Valley the  selection of Fairwiew as tbe place of  meeting effected the attendance somewhat) for with the lay-over at Oroville , necessitating the loss of three  days from the Boundary and almost as  much for those in the .Similkameen,  the conditions were not favorable for  a large turnout.  F.'Riehter, president, occupied the-  chair and about an hour sufficed for-  the business in hand, which consisted  of the introduction of a few more  names for membership and the election of officers.  The officers chosen for the ensuing  year were:  President���������Frank Richter  Secretary���������A. Megraw  Treasurer���������J. R. Jackson  Vice-Presidents ��������� I.  L.    Deardorff,  Similkameen;  D.   Carmiehael,   Okanagan ;   Hugh   Cameron,    Camp   Mc?  Kinney; S. T. Larsen, Kettle River;  J. W.  Nelson,  Greenwood;  P. T. Mc-  C-illum,  Grand Forks; Jno. McLaren,  Carson.  The place of meeting for next year  was fixed for Greenwood.  The notice of motion given  at last  meeting for admission of lady members who could qualify on the score of  residence,/ did not come  up in regular-  form owing to absence of mover, Jas.  C. Dale; and as he had made no provision for the matter by delegating the .  duty to any other member, it was not  acted upon.    Nevertheless the matter  was discussed informally, the Similka- .  lu.ee'n members combating, the opposition  which had formerly existed on  the part of Boundary 'members, and  citing the case of last years's meeting  at Keremeos   when   the   proceedings  were    conducted    throughout    in    a  manner which left no reason for exclusion of the women folk,  several of  whom are resident  in   the   Similkameen  to-day who have borne   their \  share of early hardships and crowned  their efforts with as great a measure  of success as most of the  men folk.  Greater in fact than inmost cases, for  with ..'industry   and   business   talent,  more careful habits and  better lives  they husbanded their resources where  others squandered. . The Kettle River  and South Okanagan Pioneers Society  should  have a place  for the women  who shared the toils   of  pioneering  days and any false conception of conviviality which would exclude them is  a form of selfishness of which objectors  will feel ashamed if they will only take  the trouble to think about it a little.  Another matter- effecting the status  of the society was the collection  of  historical data bearing upou the early  settlement of the district.    That is a.  duty resting upon  those of us   who  have seen old conditions pass away  and a newer- order overtaking us; and  the Kettle River and South Okanagan  Pioneers'  Society will be  recreant to  their trust if they do not grapple with  it in the manner in which they should.  If this and similar avenues of usefulness  that lie open  to   them   be not  pursued,    but   the   precious   present  frittered away in a butterfly existence  given   over   wholly to   conviviality,  then why perpetuate its existence?  On.the other hand the membership  of tbe society is open to all worthy  persons who were residents of the  .district prior to 1896 (which is not a  hard qualification) and all those who  would like to see some good . object of  this kind accomplished -by the society,  should not selfisblv hold aloof, but  should send in their names for membership. The joining fee is only $5.00  and an annual subscription thereafter  of $2.00 which no one would feel.  BANQUET  In the evening the annual dinner  was held at the Golden Gate Hotel  and an excellent spread was served by  Mr. and Mrs. Harry Jones. At the  close of the dinner a little impromptu  programme of toasts was carried out,  under the direction of tho president.  Concluded en Pago -Four.

For several,  weeks past, the press of the  western states has been full of  the issue between Pinchot and  Ballinger which became a veritable cause CELEBRIS. The former stood for conservation ; the  latter championed corporate  interests that would not stop  at spoliation of the land regardless of the consequences, if, it  should be part of their plan to  convert natural' resources into  green-backs with which to line  their pockets. The most encouraging feature, of it is . the  growing sentiment that is lining  up behind Pinchot while Ballinger is made to feel that public sentiment is against him.  ! over by lumber, concerns, creat-  I ed a state of affairs that has be-  . come a menace.

In this connection .much .credit" is due tlie  C. P.

"':���������'-..',  ���������  Before much   attention  was  paid to'the'-matter of saving the  forest domain -from destruction  by fire, the C. P.

To allow .prairie fires to  spread and destroy the  vegetable mould  meant 'to change  fertile lands into barren 'wastes'  which would  in time effect the  ramfalL,    It  would be the;des-  truefcion of one   of' their  own  best assets,, and to'their credit  be it said ��������� they began constructing fire guards by plowing the,  lands on either side of the track.  In this manner Canada's boundless wealth,  of prairie land' was  saved from th e siroe'ean sco urges  of t-Si e   "bad  lands" across the  line  and the  fertile west of today is  proof of  the  wisdom of  their course.

The    broad   term  "conservation" might be best defined  by  narrowing it to the word   "forestry,"   for   when  the natural  forests are properly  conserved  the rainfall,  water  supply,   absence of silting  and all in that  line is also conserved.    Streams  that  years  ago    had  sufficient  water  all   the    year  round  to  supply a fixed amount of power,  have been gradually  failing  in  the  dry  seasons   as  the  wood  was'being stripped  from   their  Avatersheds,    and    auxiliary  steam plants  have  been necessary to help out.

Minister of Trade and Commerce  and leader of the Senate, is visiting his son in Vancouver, Dr.  C. Cartwright, after taking the  waters of Harrison Hot Springs.  In pre-G.P.R. days Sir Richard  was much abused for referring  to British Columbia as a "sea of  mountains:,"' a phrase of which  he is reputed to be the author.  British Columbians are not now  inclined to resent it as a term of  disparagement as they were  then. They are rather pleased  with it.���������Keremeos Chronicle.  Either the Chronicle is in error as to the expression: "sea of  mountains'' or the Gazette's  recollection    of   things political,  is   astray.     The     opprobrious  epithet "sea' of mountains"  was  not given  to  British Columbia  by Sir Richard Cartwright but  by  Hon. Edward Blake   in  his  speech    against    the    government's policy   of building  tlie  first  transcontinental   railway.  Neither  was  it   so   much    the  mere term "sea  of  mountains"  which was resented   by  British  Columbia,  but the   connection  'in which it was used,  for Blake  said "British Columbia is a sea  of mountains    and   a  railway  there will  not pay  the  grease  for the wheels."     That was the  estimate    which    our   Liberal  friends placed  on  British  Columbia at that time.    The  expression "sea of mountains" did  not originate  with  Blake,  but  seems to have  been   coined  by  the late  Principal  Grant who  first used  it poetically  in  the  pages  of his book   "Ocean  to  LAURIER, BORDEN and HOPE Mineral  claims, situate in the Osoyoos Mining Division of Yale District.

The material'got alone"  in time .for building operations, but  the change in the location disarranged the plans, and hence it was here  before the necessary grading on the  east site had been done. The material  also had1' been .hauled in -on. foreign  ca'rs' and these could not be held, but  had to be unloaded and returned with  as little delay as possible. On this  account the ungraded station site was  not the place on which to unload  material. that would only have to be  moved again to'.>be out of the way of  the graders. The intention, we believe; is to locate the station as far up  towards Twenty-mile as they can and  use tlie spur to the mill as rear track  for the station. This would locate the  station further >west than where the  lumber has been unloaded, but it can't  be too far up to, suit the town.   ; :  Local  New Laid Eggs arid   Fresh  Princeton  Butter Always ton hand.  hatfords Ltd.

"I^^WWWRPI^H^WrWP'  BUY HEDLEY PROPERTY NOW  FORESTS AND GAME  Every Interest Gives a Separate Reason  For Maintaining- Forest Reserves  Mr, J. P. Turner secrct-uy (f the  Manitoba Game Protective Association  dealt with the subject of forest  reserves in relation to game protection.  He pointed out that in conserving  the forests the preservation of the  game must not be overlooked, because if you deplete a country of its  forests not only will you detract from  its productiveness and attractiveness  but you destroy its game, which forms  a valuable means of recreation.       ���������  Some examples exist of Avhat intelligent and systematic game, protection will produce not only in providing one of the best forms of outdoor recreation, but also in providing  a revenue for the state of no small  proportions. Some years ago game  was so scarce in the State of Maine  that it was hardly worth while organizing outings in "its'pursuit. Today not,'only is Maine provided wrth  game of all kinds in abundance, but  also one of the largest revenues is  derived from game licenses. '. This  wonderful trarrsforuuitien is due to  the earnest efforts of a few men who  have 'aroused public opinion and proved -'to: the legislators the value of  systematic protection. Game cannot  be protected without providing ample  tracts of forest as game refuges.  Canada is particularly fitted to provide from the Atlantic to the Pacific  game preserves which will not interfere with agriculture or other industries but which will on the other hand  enhance these. If forest reserves and  game refuges are combined Canadians  Avill be able to hunt the Avild game  existing today long after it has disappeared from other parts of the  continent. If such refuges are not  provided game animals and game  birds as well as songsters and insectivorous birds of value to the  country, at the present rate of decrease will all have disappeared in tlie  next fifty years.
