Cory of  Now York who lias been one of the  principal owners in the Nickel Plate  mine since the Hedley Gold Mining  Company took over the'property some  four years ago, anil has given the concern much of his attention as a member of the Board of directors, came in  to pay his first visit to the property.  He has recently been on an i-xtc-nded  trip to Europe and came direct from  Paris, hi inging with him a couple of  friends. Mr. J. 13. Woulen of Philadelphia who spends, considerable of  his time in the French capila.l, and  31. Fiiera de Castro a Portuguese engineer.  The party landed at Monlieal and  came directly -.west by C. P. 11. to  Sicainous and down the lake to Penticton wheero they were met by Mr. T  Walter.Beam and Mr. Jones in the  Company's car.  As there was scarcely time after  their-arrival on Friday to take In the  mine that day they were taken for a  run up theriverandalso up the Twenty  Mile Creek to give tlictu a good idea  of the surroundings and the company's  holdings in the valley.  On Saturday Lhey went up the tramway to the mine which was an experience that impressed them considerably as it has done almost everyone  who makes the trip I'm- the first time.  A careful and thorough inspection of  the mine followed and it goes without,  saying-that the Nickel Plate looked  good to them. AVhen it was known  what was involved in a trip over the  trail to Camp Clifton where the diamond drill crews arc operating, the  little side excursion was declined by  Messrs. Cory and Wordon, but the  younger man, Mr. de Castro was game  and accompanied Mr. Beam over the  tough steep trail to the'scene of the  diamond drill operations, and thence  down the canyon direct, for Hedley  .with Mr. Beam as -pilot.  Although not in the public eye to  the 'extent that men like Rockfeller, J.  J. Hill or Schwab are known. Mr. Cory  is nevertheless one of the great captains of industry and finance in a  country that is pre-eminent for  financial and industrial achievment.  -He has held the position of President  in the United States Steel Corporation  a circumstance which is. in itself  abundant evidence of his worth and  attainments and his position in the  business world.  His interests are widely scattered  and many of them are concerned  with mining, but he is much too busy  a man to give personal attention to  more than a small part of them) This  accounts for his inability to pay an  earlier visit to Hedley. His interests  in Montana which are large, helped to  bring-hiin west at the present time  and-the trip was arranged by him so  as to allow him to take in Hedley  on the way and satisfy his curiosity  as to the lay of the land in connection  with a mine which is yielding him excellent profits on  the capital  he had  STEEL AT SUMMIT  ist  K.

Two  ycras hence an Imperial Exhibition  will be held in London.. It will be "on  the lines of the Colonial Exhibition of  18S6, and tho ��������� different ��������� names illustrate the change in British Empire  nomenclature. Colonif.r exhibitions  have gone with the Colonial conference. What is now done by the dominions over the seas is Imperial. Tho  exhibition of 1915 is expected to bring  together a great display of British  Empire products, including those of  regions which were not British when  the Colonial Exhibition was held.  It will be an anniversary year,, the  .centennial of Waterloo. J.he seventh  centenary of "Magna Cuarta. 'flic  Prince of-Wales wilt then be twenty-  one, and the quadrennial Imperial  Council will be due. We may expect  in addition to the regular council of  premiers, and the meeting of the Defence Committee, a much larger council or parliament of the Empire, and  probably gatherings of various commercial, professional and other organizations.  The failure of Great Britain to participate in the Panama Exhibition  cannot react on the London Exhibition. No foreign country will be invited or permitted to share in this  enterprise. It will not be international but Pan-British.  It will be shown that'the-British  Empire is the most self-contained organization the world has ever seen.  There is hardly any object of human  desire, to say nothing of objects of  human need, that are not produced  under the British flag, ..and almost  everything produced in the Empire  meets a demand in some part of the  British domain. The collection of  such, productions in one vast display  in the presence of the persons who  produce them and of those who consume them, will be a strong arrd impressive argument for an Imperial  Trade Alliance.���������News-Advertiser.  Air. Camsell came in on Monday and  has since been busy over the hills and  in the workings of the Nickel Plate  mine, holing the developments that  have taken place since his last vi.sit  and adding to his geological data, of  things proven. The Gazette had an  interview with him in reference to the  International Geological Congress  which has taken up his attention for  more than a year pasi. Regarding  the cancellation of the side trip into  the Siuiilkameen. it was as we guessed  it would be. a gi eater disappoiulnit'iit.  to Mr. Camsell himself than it was to  Hedley. It is. however a little bit of  satisfaction to know, although perhaps  it shouldn't be, that all the other side  excursions had to be cancelled as well  and for the same reason���������simply that  with the surfeit of good things they  hatl been having and the comfort of  the overland train with its ten sice-p-  ei'.s and large day coaches in which  lectures were being given by various'  niembeis of the Canadian Geological  Survey, if was practically impossible  to persuade any of the foreign delegates to leave the main party. The  Congress ilself, Mv. Camsell said, was  an uiKiualificcl success, and while it  had entailed a lot of haul work on the  members of the Survey they were  well lepaidin the expressions of satisfaction heard from all the delegates.  The only trouble was that the rountiy  i*. too big and from a geological point  of view it is also far too interesting  altogether to expect men to take iu and  digest it all in tho weeks or months at  their disposal. To do so and expect  to escape scientific dyspepsia was to  expect too much. Many of them, however, have determined to come back  and take longer lime to see things  moie at their leisure.  One feature of the occasion mentioned by Mr. Cam.^ell was that of the  large number a it ending���������and there  were-17 countries repT-esented���������only a  small percentage of them were economic geologists or milling .engineers.  The greater number by far were general geologists who were wedded to  geology for its own sake, and they  revelled in a country like Canada  where they could see the whole story-  of creation spread out before them in  the book of rocks, from the early  Kewuydin to the latest soils that can  produce Canada's No. 1 hard, or the  more benign Siuiilkameen dirt mixed  with volcanic ash which grows the  peerless Keremeos peaches which they  might have seen but didn't.

IS.���������-The Canadian Pacific railway will complete to  the last detail the program which was  mapped out for 1913, was the statement made this morning by George  Bury, vice-president of the .company,  on his return from Fort William,  where he accompanied the directors,  completing their trip over western  lines. Mr. Bury stated that he had  found the work going ahead so rapidly  in the west that every piece of grading  and every foot of steel planned to be  clone would be finished this year. In  connection with double tracking, he  said that a little of it was now in  operation, but there would be more  by the end of the year. Asked if he  thought the company would be able to  move the crop without much difficulty,  all the vice-president replied was:  '"Wait, and we shall see."

Unlike Canada the business of the  British Post oflice is not confined to  the mails but also embraces telegraph  and cable service, and in all probability  the present visit foreshadows important changes, among which may be  expected earnest effort to cheapen  cable service.1-"  It is the first instance in which a  British Cabinet Minister has visited  Canada during his term of office. The  British Minister has addressed Canadian clubs at various points en route  and was not very well satisfied with  the liberties taken by sundry Canadian newspapers in misrepresenting  his views.  BELFAST, Sept. IS.���������-Capt. James  Craig, Unionist member for the East  Division of Down, announced at a  public meeting here tonight the acceptance of Gen. Sir George Richardson of the post of "general officer  commanding the volunteers."  Sir Edward Carson, leader of the  Irish Unionists, who is continuing his  inspection through West Down, expressed the hope, in addressing the  volunteers, that the next time he saw  them "every man will have a. rifle  on his shoulder." Ho urged them to  leave no stone unturned to resist the  invaders.  Frederick E. Smith, another of the  Ulster leaders, urged them to make  their ideals such that when the time  came for Sir Edward Carson to negotiate with the government Ire might  do so with the knowledge that behind him were 100,000 disciplined volunteers. The commanding general  emphasized the importance of efficacy  in drill and knowledge of the rifle as  being useful when the rally sounded.  eel to Toroto after going with them   to  the coast.  The Government did   the handsome  thing  and  a wise   thing   when   they  gave;    the    Geological    survey    carte  blanche anel  told  them  to spare   no  pains rior expense tp  make  the  affair  go off as well.as possible.    Canada had  the honor of playing host on   the  occ  .asion anel she had the goods  to  show,  and it would have been   unpartlonable  folly to have let the opportunity slip  without making the most of it.    If an  unkind fate  prevented   us  in  Hedley  from having a finger  in   the  pie,   we  have   sense    enough    to    understand  where the impossibility  came  in  anil'  accept the situation   for   which  there  was nobody  to  blame���������not even ourselves.  The   Gazette has  received ;i  copy of  Frank Bailey's   pamphlet. "The Vulley  of Sunshine" setting  forth I lie merits  of Nicola. Similkameen  and Tulameen  valleys.

If   Premier   Whitney  yields   to   their  clamor  he  will   be a  -weaker   man  than   his   admirers   out  here in the west take him to be. Many  of  these   men   who are  making   their  demands  for  religious  instruction  in  the public schools  and an: so ready to  declaim against what they are pleased  to characterize  as godless schools, arc  strongly against   Roman Catholic separate schools, and yet tlu-y practically  want for themselves   more than   they  are denying   to the Roman clergy   because it is  surely kiss objectionable to  allow   the, Roman   Catholics  to  have  their own  separate  schools   than   to  have  their   clergy   enter   the   public  school   anil teach their eloctrinc there.  British Columbia diet   the wisest thing  she could possibly have, done, and saved herself a heap of trouble when she-  put  her- foot  right down   on it in the  first place  and allowed no  teaching of  anything  in the public schools except  the studies of the regular school curriculum.      -'To  make  assurance double  sure;  anel   take, a.  bond  of fafe"  those;  wise olel guys who determined to save  us  from   any  possibility -of sectarian  brawls in our educational affairs, even  put a   clause  in   the   School Act that  "no  clergyina.n  of any  denomination  shall  be  eligible for  the   position   of  Superintendent, Inspector, Teacher or  Trustee."

When the clergy of any tlenomina-  tion clamor for the right to enter the  public schools to impart religious instruction they practically admit that  the church has faileel in its power to  guide the youth within its own fold.  If they cannot impart a sufiicient  amount of religious, instruction to the  youth of their own congregations  Avithin the church or the Sunday  School they have no right to the  privilege of enforcing their dogmas  upon others in the public schools.  A   C.   S.   Financial   Writer  Furnishes  Some - Instructive   Figures'  Ee Forest Hicks, a writer in the  New York Times-Annalist, lias made  a study of trade statistics and shows  that Canada is borrowing money from  Britain and spending it in the United  States.  Mr. Hicks says:     -To one.making a  study   of   the   foreign   trade   of   the  United States several facts stand out  prominently.    First:    That while the  total of exports and  imports has advanced without serious setbacks from  1SS6 to date, the balance of trade, that  is excess of exports over imports, has  been subject to wide fluctuations.  The  magnitude   of   these,   fluctuations   is  shown   by   the   fact   that   in  1S93   the  United   States   owed   other   countries  in   respect   of   its   foreign   trade   for  that year $1S,0.00,000,' whereas in 190S  other    countries    owed    the    United  States $666,000,000.   The result of our  foreign trade for year ended Jurie 30,  1913. 'approximates  this  banner, year  with a figure of .-SG53,000,000.   An analysis of  the official  figures brings out  ths surprising fact that to our favorable trade balance for the year ended  June   30,   1913,   ?294,6SS,S69,   or   over  45   per   Cent,   of   the   total,   resulted  from our trade with the Dominion of  Canada,   which,   added   to , our   trade  with the United Kingdom, constituted  a total of $596,274,236, oi- over 91 percent,  of  our  total  trade  balance.    If  we added to these figures the.balances  with   British   colonies  throughout  the  world the percentage  would be even  higher.

An itinerant mechanic struck town  last week repairing cash registers anel  combination locks for safes. Several  jobs in that line fell to his lot here.  Tho equinoctial gales came along on  schedule time this year'. There was a  vigorous driving rain accompaniment  at Hedley and snow at the Nickel  Plate and Camp Clifton.  A vicious horse in Tunis' barn let out  with both heels at VVixy- Allison on  Saturday evening and got.in a blow  that knockcel him out for a spell but  eliel no serious damage.  The seconel section of the "bohunk  express" toweel the first section into  port on Saturday, anel nearly blew  up from internal heat generated while  performing tbe salvage stunt.  Rev. "G. T.

By this  route the fastest time to the coast  may be made, only about a day be-ing  : required.  On Sunday night which was the  darkest.'..night since, early spring the  arc light at the bank corner was out  of commission.

A short special program will be given anel every-'  body welcome. The officers and'teachers would be pleaseel to see all the  parents present. Come aiid see what  is being clone in the Sunday School.  There is a roll call of 52 and an average  attendance of 45.  Monday, October 20th has been decided upon for Thanksgiving Day in  Canada and the general proclamation  concerning the same has been gazetted. Thursday used to be tlie date  selected but an agitation got up by  commercial men who foil nil it incon-  , venieiit to spend Thanksgiving Day at  home when the day came on a Thursday was instrumental in having the  day  changed.  A man known as Scotty Amos met  with a, nasty accident at Fairview on  the morning of the ISth inst. He was  drawing lumber and had a shot gun  on the load with him. The gun was  laid oir the ground near-by when the  wagon was being unloaded and on  picking it up quickly after the load  had been removed it went off, carrying away a portion of his hand.  For the first time since the reign of  M. K. Rodgers all the living accommodation at the mine for miners'  families is being utilized, and all the  rest are for the present doomed to perpetual single-blessedness. Most employers whose help is mostly of the  floating order prefer married men to  single. A few more families up there  which would enable them to have  school, ought to be a good thing.  The death in Burrard Sanitarium,  Vancouver, of W. A. II ark in, removes  a noted newspaperman. He was in  the newspaper game at the early age  of 17 years anil hold, important positions on leading eastern Canadian  dailies before following the rush to  Rossland in tho boom days of that  camp. From there he drifted to  Grand Forks and wa.s for a while editor of the Grand Forks Gazette. Latterly ho has been working on Vancouver papers.  A movement is on foot lo erect an  addition in rear of tho Methodist  church." Rev. G. T. McKenzie expressed tbe advisability about a month  ago of making an attempt in that direction and'a subscription list circulated by way of a. feeler has met with  fair success. The object in building it  is to provide accommodation for tbe  infant ' class of the Sunday school  which lias been deprived of that advantage when the partition wa.s torn  out to give more room. When the  subscription list has been circulated  all over town it will he known whether the support given to the scheme  will be sufficiently encouraging to  warrant going ahead with it.  Coalmont has taken on fresh life  anel interest with the purchase of the  Vancouver men anel the announcement is niaele that the development  work will be prosecuted with more  vigor than formerly and along lines  better calculated to produce results.  It is said that the townsite of Coalmont is included in the deal along  with the coal properties. That in  fact is the worst feature of the situation, for mining companies should be  mining companies pure and simple,  and where they begin dabbling in  townsiting they almost invariably invite failure by doing fool things from  the mining point of view in order to  boost the townsite.  The Hedley Hockey anel Skating  Club has re organized for the season  anel work has already started on enlarging and improving the rink which  is to be .60x150 feet. Last year it was  run more or less in a go-as-please sent  of way and those who useel the rink  most suited themselves whether they  would contribute to the tip-keep or  not. This year it is intended to look  after the finances a little more carefully and have all do their share. The  chaps who have been working at the  rink this year so far have done good  work. Most of last year's senior  team are still on hand and if they can  get ice in gooel time they should be in  fair shape before the season is very  old.  ���������'.';_ A.'few days before she went away  Miss. Marguerite Beam-added to the  feats of lnountain.-climbing to her  credit by making the descent through  the canyon from Camp Clifton to the  bed of Twenty-iyile, piloted by her  father. Forthe greater part of the  way there is no trail whatever and an  exceedingly steep .'descent where in  several places there was nothing for it  but to slide . witli the loose talus.  Among the men folks the trip is considered strenuous anel not unattended  with danger,'��������� but a soreness of the  muscles for a few days was all the  after effect there was to trouble her.  It was. an experience which she said  sh(i wouldn't have missed for a great  deal 'anel which' she would not.tackle  again for much more.  Mr. and Mrs. II. S. Joyner who have  been living in Seattle  since  they  left  here a little over a year' ago  are   moving to Los Angeles, California, to take-  up  their residence with Mr. and Mrs.  Rodgers, who  intend    to    make    the  California   city   their home until matters  quieten  down   a  bit  in  Mexico.  On one occasion a band of 125  rebels-  made a raid  into  the section  where  Mr. Rodgers  was  working  a .mining  property anel demanded  their horses.  Meanwhile the foreman had the horses  taken into a tunnel where there  were-  a few rifles and a. supply of ammunition, and   when   the  rebs.   demanded  the horses they were tolel   te>  come   in  anel get them.    Mrs. Rodgers. too,   on  one occasion   had   a   narrow   escape  when  she  was  on  a train   that    the  rebels were trying  to  capture. ; They  took the station,   killing  the station  agent and  freight handler   and    the  train was near enough the  station   to  hear tho shots but got a signal in time  to enable them to run back out of danger.  Mrs. T. Walter Beam and her  daughter, Miss Marguerite, left on  Thursday last for their home in Denver, Colorado, after a three months'  holiday in Hedley. They both expressed, before leaving, how well they  enjoyed their stay, anel we are sure  the people of Hedley will be as ready  to bear testimony to the pleasure it  afforded their many friends in Hedley  to have them here.

The readiness of both  Mrs. Beam and her talented daughter  to interest themselves in all that interested the townspeople anel to take  their part with the rest on occasions  for mirth and jollity, was thoroughly  appreciated anel accounted in great  measure for their popularity. There  was no supercilious aloofness and the  entire absence of all such, together  with their own good sense and whole-  KOtncness, enabled tlieni to have a Rood  time themselves and contribute to the  enjoyment of others.

The process of which  he writes will save all the metals in  the ore. he declares in a- letter read at  last night's meeting, at a cost of about  $12 per ton. He suggests that from  $15,000 to $20,000 should be raised to  erect a plant on a commercial basis.  The: secretary was instructed to take  the matter up with the British Columbia Mining association.���������Nelson  News.  f   When yon arrive at Penticton or  V Koromco.-* ask for  {   TWEDDLE'S AUTO STAGE  C Cars Call atall Hotels  ������-'\^rAs%/'/  FXDR    SERVICE  The Throughbred Running  Stallion  0  0  0  0  0  0  9  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  ���������5*  ���������&  0  0  0  As the Keremeos Land Company's Ranch has  been sold, all the Stock and Farm Implements  must  be disposed of..

Kengedy, Provincial Fruit  Pest Inspector, returned on Tuesday  from a trip through the Keremeos  anel Osoyoos Fruit districts, where he  has been inspecting the fruit crop now  being marketed.  Mr.   Kennedy stilted   that some of  the best  peaches he has  seen this season  of  the  Crawford,  Triumph,  and  Yellow   St.   John   varieties,   are   in  Keremeos orchard'*,  and he predicts a  future  for that  district  in respect to  peach  growing.    The size of the fruit  and the  flavor, he said,  were remarkable,   but  might  be  accounted for in  the abnormal amount of sunshine that  obtained  in  the .Keremeos Valley.���������  I'entieton Herald.
