Bar Stocked with  Best Brands of Liquor and Cigars,  A..WINKLER, Proprietor  Apart from the substantial benefit  which tho peoples of Hedley derive  from the Nickel Plato mine and works  they have reason to feel a- just pride  in the continued success which marks  its operations. This week again they  learn of another quarterly dividend of  three per cent being declared in New  York by the directors of the Hedley  Cold Mining Co., the dividend being  payable on the first of October to till  shareholders on record on September  17th. Thus every quarter the usual  dividend of three per cent is declared  and paid and there is no fuss about it  on the one hand nor mystery on the  other. The new company have now  operated the property a few days over  the year and already the fourth dividend has been declared in addition to  much improvement in the initio and  works.  The net profits of the mine, even  with the old equipment have been going over $90,0U0 every quarter which  is considerably 'more than is necessary  to pay the cm-rent dividends thafcare  being maintained, and by the time the  iinproyenionts now unber way are  completed (which will be in about a  month or six, weeks' more) the increased output as well as the closer saving  of values which will be effected will  permit still greater profits and more,  extended operations.  A feature which has. in-irked the  past year is the increased attention  which has been given to the matter of  development work in the mine,.and  the excellent results obtained will  doubtless lead to still in ore extensive  development during the coming years,  especially as the new equipment will  allow them .to push the development  more expeditiously and economically  than ever it was done before.

KOGEKS,  M.A., 15.0.L.  13ARRISTER, SOLICITOK,  NOTARY PUBLIC, ETC  Vernon, B. C  Last   week was a most interesting  one among local golfers, as many individual contests among members to  better their position   on   the   ladder-  competition   standing.     A  fortnight  ago a match was  played   between E.  H. Williams and L. C. Rolls the latter-  being the challenger.     In it Williams  won by 8 holes up. Last week a second  match  was played when   the decision  was reversed, Rolls winning by (5 holes  up.   A few days before the last game  mentioned  a match  was   played  between L. C. Rolls and S. E. Hamilton,  the former being  the challenger and  Rolls won  by one  hole up.     W. Mafc-  tinson challenged R. James and won  the match by one  hole  up.   But the  most exciting match ot the  lot was  one played  on Friday   last   between  Rolls and Hincks,  the former  being  the challenger.   The standing of the  two  players at  the sixth  hole of the  second  or last round showed both to  be even  in holes and the result hung  on who would win the remaining hole.  Along they  came from the sixth hole  stroke by  stroke each determined to  win   "'.Primrose  Way'' a 5S5 yd. hole  strewn with numerous difficulties and  both  were  on   the  narrow   bench on  which   the  hole  was situated   for   5.  With a. mashie approach  shot and a  single putt Hincks  holed in for 7 and  one putt shot which fell  a. trifle short  lost Rolls the hole, and the match.  On Saturday afternoon the foursomes were to have been held ��������� but  from some misunderstanding only  sufficient Indies turned out to man  one set, In it Rolls and Miss Eraser  played Hincks and Mrs. Rotherhani  and won by one hole \\p.  Various other single matches are  on the tapis for this week.  On Thursday last Mr. -.Shatford arrived in Hedley accompanied by Mr.  H. A. Turner, road supervisor for the  district. This is Mr. Shatford's third  visit to Hedley since, the. last session  of the legislature and this time he was  onlv making a brief run through the  Similkameen before proceeding to the  eastern end of the riding which he  had visited earlier in the summer.  The Similkameen electoral district is  one of the largest and most difficult to  cover in the whole province, nevertheless its representative manages to see  every portion of it once or twice a year  and parts of it much more frequently  than that.  The editor of the Gazette had an invitation from Mr. Shatford to accompany liim "on the trip up the Kettle  River and the West Fork and regrets  exceedingly; that it'was impossible at  this time to get away. It is. a tripthat  we would enjoy-particularly well for  many reasons '''aiid1' not the least of  these was the opportunity it would afford of 'meeting old tillicums ' on the  West fork and revisiting old schemes  after cah 'absence, of 'some six years.  Perhaps some' time later-' we -may be  able to indulge the pleastive. ,'!.v .<���������  . It is evident that Mr. Shatford has  an easy conscience so far as performance of his duty to all parts of the district is concerned when he is not afraid  to meet electors face to face in the presence of the road supervisor-, for if any  community"'.has" any reason to complain of the treatment received in the  matter of roads the district supervisor  who is the one against whom the kick  is first made, would in many cases be  the very official whom, it would be  most conyenient to keep out of the  way.  When the editor first made acquaintance  with   the   West   Fork   of   the  Kettle River the only means of ingress  and egress for a considerable   portion  of the year was  by the   "high water  trail" and anyone who  had to. make  that trip very often was  sure to have  pronounced ideas as to the   claims of  the district for a public road.      It was  not in  the period  of high water   that  Mr.  Shatford made his first trip up  the West Fork as far as the mouth of  Beaver Creek but at the  time of the  year when a vehicle could be used.  Mr. Shatford covered the distance in a  buggy that had fortunately been specially fortified for the trip.     Part of his  driver's equipment was a strong new  galvanized    iron   pail   to   water   the  horses from  streams along the road  and  it was  slung  behind  the  rig in  such a way  that the bottom extended  below the rear axle.     When  the rig  reached Rock Creek  on   the   return  trip the new pail resembled an   old  sauce pan  that had done duty at a  charivari  and by  illustrating the period of low w.-iter at which the trip was  made it is only necessary to mention  the fact that at one of the numerous  fords  by which the river was crossed  and re-crossed the then aspiring representative of Similkameen  (for-he had  not yet been elected) had to jump out  of the buggy into midstream to rescue  part of his baggage   and campaign literature that had escaped over the edge  of the buggy box and was starting on  a cruise down stream.  It is needless to say that bridges  now span those fords and the roads  are such that a watering pail slung to  the rear axle would have a better  chance to survive the trip.  The completion of that road was a  public work that former governments  had bungled and the new adiuisistration was disposed to fight shy of. and  it is perhaps the first public work in  the constituency in which the government first learned the insistence of the  member for Siinilkaineen.  STILL HOLD THE CUP  Montreal   Nationals   Fail to    Lift   the  Minto Cup Lacrosse Trophy- -Will  Be Finally Decided Saturday  KINGSTON TO WORK SOON  With a start of four goals to the  good there should not be much danger  of the Westminster Lncross club losing the. cup in the remaining game;  which is to be played on Saturday  with the Montreal National.-* who woio  the winners of the pennant in this  year's games in the Senior Lacrosse  series back east.  The Nationals are all of them French  Canadians, and they made a spectacular win of the penant having an enormous-lead in games and goals overall  the other clubs of the League, and  would have been entitled to claim the  Minto Cup without playing any further match,for it but for the fact that  the cup was no longer in the possession of the league to which they belonged.  Since Westminster went east and  won the cup in 190S the only club  which could win it from them without  a special Minto Cupmatch is''the.'Vancouver'club which is in a coast league  with the Westminsters.  ...In all. straight cup matches played  by outside/ Canadian Clubs who may  challenge for it the cup series of games  consists of two games, played witha  week's interval between' them, and the  team "-winning-.the/ largest .number of  goals in the both games is declared  the winner. :,..,;  In'last Saturday's match the score  at the end stood 7 to 8 in favor of  Westminster. Thus a lead of 4 goals  is a hard one to-overcome but is not  insurmountable. All Westminster has  to do now is to hold them even for the  balance of the play, but till the same  they will not neglect to add a few  goals'more to the tally as opportunity  may present itself.  It is always a welcome sight  to see  work or preparations for work   starting on any of the properties  in camp.  While the Kingston mine is not a new-  property   it  has  been   idle since the  beginning of the year.    This week Mr.  Pollock who''.was. in   charge   of   the  work when the mine'' was  last operated and who was: successful in showing up good  bodies o);  pay-ore   iia.s  gone tip to the mine  to;get things in  readiness for resuming"..operations  as,  soon as a few preliminaries are atteu-,  dec! to iir: .connection-.''with-'taking it  over by the new concern..

GETTING AN OLD MAN  Jim: Hill   Passes    His-. Seventy-Second  Birthday.       .':���������',.  NELSON SHIELDS  FOR LOCAL SCHOOLS  A St. Paul despatch to Associated  Press tells of J. J. Hill's seventy-second  birthday. Will he only allow Siruilka-  ineeri to celebrate the completion of  the.V. V. & E. to the coast before he  reaches two more .birthdays?. The  despatch says:       . ��������� ,  .   , '������������������'������..  '.St; Paul/ Sept 10th~J anies X Hill  was 72 -years old today. "I'm feelihg  in good health," he remarked.- Standing erect, his eyes 'shining- brightly he  looked to be in splendid' condition.  ���������'Some  four years   ago  at the   state  We are authorized to state that Rt.  Hon. Lord Stratocona's Nelson Shield  has been ottered by Rev. Alfred Hall,  of Toronto, to each of the schools in  the B. C. Inspectorate.  There are no charges or conditions.  The British and Foreign Sailors'  Society, which received the "Victory"  copper- from the Lords of the British  Admiralty, has undertaken the expense of mounting, engraving, and  distributing these historic .Shields;  and only asles some voluntary contribution to reimburse them, and aid  their Sailors' Institute's for men of the  Royal Navy, .Merchant Ships, etc., in  Canada, and all over the world.  These Nelson Shields are highly  valued for their patriotic and educational influence in the Universities,  Colleges and Schools where they are  already placed.  Private   Colleges and   Schools are  eligible to receive tho Nelson Shield  and should apply for them.  capital you said that-'-the time had  come when you would have a little  time left to read some books" he was  reminded. "I said it then," he replied  briskly. It's not my burden; it is  others," he added.  Mr. Hill is adverse to talkinginnch  about himself, Evidently he did not  like to discuss personal matters-although it is his birthday. What- kind  of books, should a man read, Mr. Hill  was asked, but he was not going to be  led into a discussion of literature.  With a. twinkle in his eyes all he said  was: "That depends on the man."  Mr. Hill was down at his office  bright, and early. Sometimes he reaches his office after, 10 o'clock, alighting from his carriage tit the Third  street entrance. Practically everybody else in the building uses the  elevators but Mr. Hill likes healthful  exercise and walks up the stairs to  consult with the various officials in  charge of the different departments of  the Great Northern rarhvav.  FAILS TO CROSS IRISH SEA  THE PROBLEM  OF THE DAY  What Is To Be Done To Prevent These  Destructive Forest Fires ?  J. J. Marks, the Hedley mining man,  of Golden Zone fame, accompanied by  his wife, came into the city Thursday,  being very much interested in the brilliant possibilities of Merritt' and district. Mr. Marl's intendf immediately  to start up a business here. He is at  present staying at the Cold water.���������  Merritt Herald.  During the past summer forest fires  have been devouring the growth of  centuries with ruthless rapacity.  Northern Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia have suffered most.  Fine tracts of merchantable timber  worth millions of dollars have been  destroyed, square mile upon square  mile of young growth coming on to  supply the demands of the future has  been wiped out of existence. In Northern Ontario, where but a thin layer of  vegetable mould covers the rocks, the  soft, oozy forest floor, the only hope of  vegetation and equable stream flow  has been completely destroyed, leaving a cheerless rocky waste for generations to come. Even if no thought be  given to the number of lives lost, it  must be admitted that the loss occasioned this year by forest fires has  been nothing short of apa.lling.  Can nothing lie done, then, to prevent this loss'-' Thi! answer is that  much (ran be done. The solution of  the problem is indicated   irr two words  Mr. A. Lornine, the aviator, made  an attempt to cross the Irish sea in  his aerodlane, but owing to a defect in  the petrol tank he was obliged to de-  ssend when his journey was all but  completed.

On   September  0,   the  iirst  sod    in  connection with construction of the  Hudson Bay Railway was turned at  Pas Mission, Kewatin, by Hon. Geo.  P. Graham, Minister of Railways and  Canals. The spot selected for this  historic ceremony is on -the south  shore of the river Saskatchewan near  the approach of the Pas bridge, the  in instruction of which the government has placed under contract to  Me:-srs.. Mackenzie and Mann.  The bridging of the Saskatchewan  river at Pas Mission, which is the  northern terminal of a branch line,  90 miles long, from the Winnipeg-  Prince Albert section of the Canadian Northern Railway, is the first  step in the carrying out of the Dominion government's project to not  only open up a new and immense  M-ction of country to the. north of  existing settlements, but to furnish a  new water route to Liverpool.  The Hudson Bay terminal point of  the new railway is not yet settled,  but Fort Nelson will probably be the  choice over Fort Churchill. Pas is  destined to be a junction city of importance, and may wrest from Prince  Albert the distinction of being the  most northerly city of the prairie  West.  Whether   the    Dominion    government will build and operate the Hudson    Hay   Railway, or   merely    build  and give running rights to a railway,  as tin: Canadian Northern, or to several railways has  not yet been definitely pronounced upon.   The Toronto  Globe, the Liberal newspaper of Ontario,   suggests   the   latter injan editorial which reads in part:  "Tin;  Dominion   has   embarked on a  great project in a spirit of hope and  confidence, and also with caution and  reserve.    We need not borrow trouble,  about   vessel   connections   when   the  terminus is  still   uncertain.    We can  develop the project as expediency directs  and opportunity opens, always  careful to  avoid the mistakes against  which experience, warns.    If the  road  is built with the money or  the  credit  of the Dominion the people  need  not  give   it away to  any private corporation.    Monopoly,   the   bane    of   our  railw-ay development can  be avoided.

Parsons, of Olalla, came  ' in on -Monday   to spend, a  few days  with her sister, Mrs. McEwen.  Mrs. Arthur' Clare was admitted to,  the hospital this week and underwent  an operation. She: is reported to be  doing well.   . .....-.' '  When you find a good thing sttiy by  it. That's what smokers aro doing  with Estimo cigars. They are, good  all through.'  A gang of men are at work extending the pipe line farther up the creek  to a point where additional head of  water and a better intake can be secured ,  Dr. Jackson, dentist, left for Princeton on Monday but expects to make  another call at Hedley on Iris way  back to finish up some work which he  has in hand.  A Vancouver gentleman was so  pleased with the singing qualities of  Mr. Bolls' canaries, he took one from  Hedley with him to the coast.  Rev. A.-H. Cameron announced at  liis Sunday night's service that after  October 1st service would begin at  7.30 instead of S o'clock which has  been the hour since April.  The D. K. Co.'s big 80 ft. smoke-  .stack is now suspended from a gin-  pole at.the power-house and will be  set on its permanent foundation as  soon as the 'masonry, for it is completed.  Maurice Daly, of Kereineos, is now  in the -hospital undergoing repairs  .as the result of tin accident which is  described in pin- Keremeos news of  this week. He is making satisfactory  recovery.  Work oil the new road to the station which was resumed last'week is  beginning to shape up in good form.  It will be a slow job as work can only  be carried on to advantage from one  face and there is a good deal of dirt  to move.  T.

The barber shop will occupy the portion now taken 'up. with  the fruit and candy: store.  The mountain side across the river-  presented a beautiful spectacle for the  past ten days. The crimson of the  sumach blends prettily with the yellow cottonwood and with the brown  hillside relieved by the dark green fir  for a background looming up through  the smoky langurous haze that lends  additional effect to early autumnal  tints makes a scene in which artist or  poet might revel.  There was a fair turnout at the Hospital tea given by the Ladies' Auxiliary on Friday afternoon, and the  ; sum of $14.55 was realized. Pressing  ���������engagements prevented some from being there who would otherwise have  been present, and as these teas are  likely to be continued monthly again,  now that cooler weather may be expected it is most likely that future  .gatherings of the kind will be well  patronized.  It was reported that another nratch  race'was to be held on Tuesday in Oro-  wille between Brouillette and Smith  who ran here the day after the sports.  The match was to be for $500 aside  and the distance 75 yds. in which  Brouillette was to allow Smith 5 feet  of a start. There was a strong impression abroad that the affair was  well cooked and that the nice here  was only the par-boiling process of the  ���������culinary operation. No word has come  to hand as to how the thing came out,  if it was held at all.���������Later. It is reported that Smith won.  Last week Hedley had a visit from  Messrs.  V.  Kistler,  of Grand Forks,  district freight and passenger agent of  the Great Northern and W. B.

It  was  not learned  whether they indicated any particular  tune when that Oroville layover would  be cut out.   Nevertheless  we are always  glad to  see  railway  men come  .around whether they are able to give  us till  we want or not.     It betokens a  desire on their part to become conversant  with  the  district and  its needs  and this is the surest way to avoid the  troubles that sometimes spring up between  communities and the railways  that are serving them.  ������@������������������*^  H  ���������0  0  @  0  0  0  0  0.  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0'  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  Of Everything  in  Our  Dry   Goods   Department*  Ladies'  Waists, Skirts,  Whiteware  Hosiery, etc;  Men's  Clothing,  Shirts Underwear  Hats and Caps  Boots and Shoes, Mens', Women's and Children's  Furniture, Carpets and Linoleums  We are making Sweeping Reductiens in all of the above goods many things being marked away  down below cost.

While attempting to dispose of his  plunder around the city he was arrested by Deputy Stack. At the trial before Judge Cochrane yesterday he  was sentenced to six months at hard  labor in ithe Nelson jail. This afternoon Connors escaped from the city  lockup by tearing a hole through the  roof of the building. He was recaptured at the race track, and will be  taken to Nelson on Monday.���������Grand  Forks Sun  On Thursday of last week Mr. C. D.  Fraser-, of New York, secretary of the  Hedley Gold Mining Co. arrived in  Hedley to visit and inspect the works  here. Unfortunately while the weather which seemed to have been specially .favorable for the enjoyment of  his stay, happened to be the kind  least calculated to benefit him and an  attack of something of the nature of  hay fever seized him and kept him  confined to his room for several days.  On the day of his arrival Mr. Jones,  the general superintendent took him  for a drive up the creek to inspect the  company's power- flume as well as the  new pipe line for water supply.���������[As  we go to press it is learned that Mr.  Fraser's illness has developed into a  touch of pneumonia from which it is  hoped he will make speedy recovery.]  That the Keremeos page of the Gazette is very effectively keeping that  place before the public is quite apparent to anyone who has access to the  provincizl press and can see the number of items of news  taken  from its  columns   telling   the   outside   public  what is doing in Keremeos.     The Gazette congratulates its Keremeos representative oh his discrimination in  giving  us the class of news that tire  public want to.know about,  else the  papers on the outside would not glean  as plentifully from his news  columns  as they do.    Yet there are people in  Keremeos like many in Hedley who  think they could do far better than he  is doing and  with their thoughtless  criticism  they never seem   to   think  that they too owe a duty to the town  in,which they aro making their living  by doing their share to keep it before  the public.   The local paper is supposed to be more or less a directory of the  business done in  the  place  but  like  Hedley (although not nearly as bad)  there are lines of business irr Keremeos  that are  not represented on the page  and there are also a very few who do  not take the paper.    It seems to be the  rule in every community  that those  who do the least criticise  tho most,  but that  is not the  way to help build  up a town.

THE PROBLEM OF THE DAY  J. A. BROWN  Notary Public  COX V'K YANCI NCi, 0 U.STOM.S' HROKERA C.12,  KIRK  JXSUl'A-N'CE  AGENCY HEDLEY GAZETTE  OFFICE - KEUEMEOS, B.C.  Sunday School at 10 a.m. sharp, followed by special service conducted by  Hew Mr. Kinney. Everybody cordially invited to be present.  Mr. G. Graham. Asst. Traffic Supt.  of the C. P. R. and wife who were the  guests of Mr. and Mrs. AV. H. Armstrong during the past week left on  Monday for Wenatchee, where Mr.  Murray will engage the services of an  expert apple packer to take charge of  the apple exhibit from this valley at  the National Apple show at Vancou-  ver.  .T. R. Brown, of Summer-land,'Indian  agent, was in the  valley last week adjusting some   differences among  the  Si washes,   which  by   reason   of long  standing, owing to the scant attention  the former agent was able to give the  reserves in this  district, were difficult  to settle  satisfactorily.     He returned  to   Summerland  on   Friday,   accompanied  by Mrs.   Crooker  who is making a. visit with friends at that place.  John Young,   who is  working  with  the    Government   engineers   up   the  Ashnola, was down over Sunday.    He  reports that an exploratory trip to the  head  waters of  the Ashnola and  Si-  lnilka.nieen show a one per cent grade,  and   is strongly  of the  opinion  that  this is a route which it might be well  worth the. while of the Great Northern  to consider in building through to the  coast.     Not only could a much more  favorable  grade  be secured   but   the  distance would be shortened appreciably according to the way  John sees  it.  Maurice  Daly added another to his  already long list of accidents,  for a  boy  of his age,  on  Wednesday   last  when he received a pellet of lead from  a .22  caliber rifle in   his foot.    Those  who  are disposed   to   consider a  .22  rifle as a comparatively  harmless toy  will be surprised to learn what a painful wound   it can Inflict.    In   this case  it drove the small bullet deep into the  foot, embedding  it in the  bone where  it   was difficult to   remove,  and  also  carried  with    it  particles   of   leaves,  leather and other foreign matter.    Dr.  McEwen came down to dress the foot  and on  his return   to Hedley   wa.s accompanied  by Maurice  who  will  remain there as long as the foot requires  surgical attention.     Maurice was just  regaining   the use  of a. broken  arm,  sustained   in a run-a-way  accident in  the  hills above  Princeton.    His prior  accidents   include being shot through  the hand   by a large  calibre  rifle  and  scalded over the  face anil neck by the  steam  and hot water from an exploding toy engine.    The former accidents  were liiore or less the result of his own  daring  or   lack   of carefulness   but in  this   incident it   was an   accident that  could not   have been   foreseen and for  which   he wa.s  in  no way responsible.  His brother  was shooting at a weasel  on the fence  and the bullet, after performing  the mi.-sion   on which it was  sent,   ricochet ted  and   found  another  target.  Continued from Page One  brought to bear upon these; The  tourist-camper does not tit all realize  the extent of the "damage which his  unextinguished camp lire may do.  Laws against leaving camp fires burning are already on the statute hooks,  but it is quite evident that their observance' rests mainly with, the tourist  himself. He must be impressed with  the very serious nature of his offence..  If amah sets fire to a building, he is  convicted of arson and sent to prison  as a. felon, but if his unextinguished  camp fire burns down millions of -dollars worth of timber arid perhaps destroys human life as well, he is, at best,  made to pay a small fine. AVhen public opinion views this carelessness of  the calliper as a criiiinal act and frowns  upon him accordingly, considerable  progress will have been made'in lessening tlie number of forest fires from  this cause.' ', ':    --'J  ���������But it is the railways   that   spread  the, most destruction.     Traversing, as  they  do.   the great lone  stretches of  uninhabited  timber areas,   the sparks  from their locomotives start numerous  fires  that gain ,great headway  before  being detected. Too often the right-of-  way,    piled thick ; with  in flammable  rubbish',   furnishes   a  tinder-box   for  these  conflagrations.     The  owner of  destroyed property along the line has  found it almost impossible under the-  present laws to get damages from the  railway'company,  so difficult  is it to  fix the responsibility, arid so expensive  is the  process of litigation.    In-order  to  lessen the   number of fires  due   to  this  cause,   the    Committee   on  Forests of the commission of Conservation  has  proposed  to  make   tlie   railways  pecuniarily responsible.   It has recommended  that there  be  added  to  the  Railway Act a  clause  making  them  liable  to a fine  of $1,000,   recoverable  by summary prosecution before a stipendiary magistrate or two justices of  the  peace,  for every fire  star-ted by  sparks   from   their   locomotives.      It  makes no difference whether the fire  begins  outside the  right  of   way  or  spreads  therefrom to adjoining hind.  The  railways  are exempt from   this  fine if they can  show that  they have  the best modern  appliances  on  their  locomotives to prevent the emission of  sparks, that their employees have not  shown negligence in conducing to the  starting of the fire, and that they have  maintained an efficient  and properly  equipped staff of fire-rangers. In other-  words, the Committee proposes to lessen  the number   of   fires   caused  by  sparks from locomotives   by   having  the railways fined for the damage they  do,  unless  they  take every   possible  precaution  to  prevent such damage.  This is obviously a fair recommendation as regards  both the railways and  the public,  and the effort to  have it  made law is worthy of public support.  Every Canadian is deeply interested in  the protection  of our forests: for each  forest   fire   means  that   he   and   his  children will have to pay higher prices  for every foot of lumber-  they   use.  Such a * measure, tor the  preservation  of our forests,  as that  recommended  by the  Committee  on  Forests of the  Commission  of Conservation  should,  therefore,   commend  itself  to   every  public-spirited  citizen -and newspaper  in Canada.
