MINING NOTES     |  The work on the big tunnel at the  Sullivan mine at Kimberley is progressing rapidly, the tunnel having been  driven a distance of S75 feet. Ihe big  new electrically driven mucking machine is now operations, making tlie progress much more rapid than ..by the  old hand method. This tunnel will  require about two year's work'to complete and will betisedto bring the ore  out to .the railroad on the lower level  instead of by the aerial tramway now  in use.���������Daily News.  Pat Gallaper of Nelson is working a  mineral,pr6perty that he recently located, It is three miles south of the  Trail smelter, on the south side of the  Columbia river,'orie mile- back. Several large dykes and ledges cross the face  of the hill. Assays from the surface  give return as high as $13.50 in silver  and 6 per cent, copper. One ledge is  30 feet wide. Ore resembling that of  the Nickle Plate at-.Hedley   has   been  found in the shaft. '"Ore from this pro-  ��������� 1. . ��������� ��������� . ...  perty'can be trammed to the shrelter  on the Columbia river.

After being compelled   to  store  its  zinc product for the last three months,  the "Rambler-Cariboo   has   favorable  prospects of securing a   zinc   contract  with Denver or Kansas City smelters,  making possible the marketing of  500  tons held in reserve, according to Dr.*  W. B. McPhee, who returned to  Spokane a few days ago from a trip to the  mine.   The mine is producing 400 tons  of silver-lead   concentrate.-*; and  zinc  per month.   The last zinc -contract expired Mily 25 after the   shipment   of  four cars that netted a total of  approximately $15,000.    "The   Denver and  Kansas City zinc companies are   evidently in the market for our  zinc  anil  terms are being considered," Dr.   McPhee   is  reported   as    saying.    "The  mine is now working 45  men,   operations being underway in tunnels  Nos.  3, 7, 8,10 and 12.    In tunnel No. 10  a  face of five feet of ore has been   open-,  ed.

Miss Jones and Mr. Pryor of  Hedley pleased tbe audience with their  solos, while Mr. Edmunds sang the  Cornish Floral Dance, Miss Daly rendered a patriotic song "Take me back  to Canada." Mr. William Daly pleased  the audience with his violin, and in  addition he and Mr. Stanton contributed a violin duet.  The proceeds of the day which  amounted to quite a large sum will be  given to the work of the Red. Cross  Society.  Monday, October Htb will be  Thanksgiving clay. Surely Canada  and the Empire has much to be thankful for this year, and we in Hedley especially.  One of the year's most pleasant social affairs took place-Monday evening  when the staff of the Hedley Gold Mining Company tentlere'd an anniversary  entertainment to the General Superintendent, Mr. G. P. Jones.  The Opera House'was nicely decorated and the platform tastefully a 1 rang-,  ed with flowers.  The early evening was spent in dancing which was greatly enjoyeel by nil  present. During the ' course of the  evening in the intervals between elan-  ces, Miss Avoniii* Jones sang a song  entitled "Often". The Misses Smith  played a. couple of piano duetts and  Mrs. Spronle played for some of the  dances. Harry Barnes wa.s floor man- -  ager.  Shortly before midnight supper was ,  announced. The* company was ushered into the room usually set aside as  the dressing 1 00111, wln-re a long table  was disclosed to view, literally groaning uueler the weight of good things.  The decorations were very pretty anel  called for-general comment and approbation.  A card and program of toasts was  on each plate so that each person found  their allotted places with the least,  amount of difficulty or confusion.  Mr. R. Wheeler presided as Toast-  master and the first toast proposed  was "The Empire," responded to by  Mr. C. P. Dalton. He spoke briefly of  the magnitude* of the.Empire, of our  determination'to live up'to' the traditions of the past anel to defenel the  honor and the neutrality of the lesser-  nations.  The "Community," responded to by  A! B. S. Stanley.    "The Company" responded   to by   Mr. S. L. Smith.   He  had come to Hedley in the early years  when he was told that if he wanted to  get here he would have to swim.   He  had seen the growth of the mine to its  present   proportions   and have   never  known the company to deal   unfairly  with any  of its men.   The   motto  of  the company   was "a square   deal   to  all."   It has always been a pleasure to  work for them and the   reason everything worked   so smoothly   was   that  the policy erf thCjCoinpany was to treat  its men fairly and justly.   The present  manager   especially  emphasized   this  policy in his dealings   with the men  and.in a   social way  made those who  came to the camp feel that   it was   a  pleasure and an honor to be connected  with such an institution.  "Tire Ladies"! Bert Jones was the  speaker selected to handle this very  tender subject, but he certainly arose  to the occiision and toasted them till  they were red in the face, some of  them, when he said "woman was a  work of art, a nrost wonderful edition,  of which every man should have a  copy." The eulogy might have lasted  indefinitely, but the speaker at last  realized that his glass was empty and  that he could no longer toast the ladies.  "The Young Men" of the staff, responded to by Mr. P. Prior in a neat  little speech in which he made the  point that a young man who started  out under proper conditions with a  good company, like the Hedley Gold  Mining Co., had a far better chance of  making a success of his future.  "Mr. and Mrs. G. P. Jones" responded to by the Toastmaster, R. Wheeler.  He refered to the fact that this occasion was the 50th anniversary of Mr.  Jones' birthday   and that we were as- THE HEDIEY GAZETTE. SEPT.  23. 1915

In   tlie  wai'  situation,   while
nothing big* has   been   reported
. this week, we are evidently  on
the   eve   of   a   history-making
period in that big struggle.
The Russian army is playing
hide and seek with the troops
of the Kaiser, one cartoon depicting them as a Will-o'-the-
Wisp, with the Kaiser following
hard, not seeing the wisp of
bayonets in his immediate path-
��� way.
The need for concerted action
by all parties and in every way
is being impressed upon us by
the men at the head of affairs,
' and the landing of bi'g munition
orders by Canadian institutions
is significant in that it points to
' the fact that in the time of its
greatest need the Mother Country realizes that her greatest
colony is back of her and she
does not hesitate to call upon
them for aid.
; With Italy driving Austria on.
one side and Russia on. the
other, with the Allies forcing,
slowly, but surely, the Darden-
elles, and bringing ever nearer,
the fall of the Ottoman Empire,
with the French and British
pounding away at the Western
front, the day of big things cannot be far removed.
If ever we gave, let us give
now. If ever we sent, let us
send now. If we ever showed
confidence in the Empire and
her destiny, let us not falter
now. If ever the government
had our support, let it be now.
The ultimate end will, must,
be success to the Allies and the
���cause for which they fight.

It was the good fortune*, of this per

a per-oii of Mich habits, virtues anel
wisdom was chosen. When we turn

and learn what the country was, at
the entry of this person, we lind it.
was almost an unknown spot in its
piimev.-il slate. Buried within its
rocky realm was the pure untarnished
wealth of gold���Old Father Time had
exposed one spot upon which the labors of this man   were to Ik* centered.
The. task was no light one���the
sound of the ax was heard in the forest

By constant delving into the rocky
ledges we have before us the result of
his works. Where once wa.s was only
the noiseless trend of the red man, we
have a prosperous community.
Mr. Jones has woi-kcel his way up
the ladder to the top round of his profession by his own labors, purely. His
path has not always been one strewn
with roses, neither could it be one of
peace and accord always within the
soul of this man. He has had his
trials and tribulations. He has seen
others awarded the position which he
hr-is since filled'with better grace, better- judgement, better satisfaction to
his employer's. It is a high achievement and calls forth our admiration.
He has proven worthy of his trust.
His success speaks volumes for his

General Superintendent and have seen
him in daily life there * are shown
other sides than mere business ones.
To those in trouble, to those whose
homes sorrows and griefs have entered a helping hand has been freely given. To those around him an uplifting
influence has been shed. The life of a
mining camp is a, trying one, narrow
at the best, but the life of one in Hedley camp has b3en raised to a higher
plane by the broad minded actions and
elevating eleeds of our benevolent
manager and his worthy wife. We
are .here this evening to do them honor
and give them our best wishes for continued prosperitytiind. good health.
Mr. lind Mi-si' Jones, it falls, now, to
my lot, on behalf of those here this
evening to present to...both of you a
token of admiration, respect and good
Will. May the blessing of God rest
upon you.
He then presented Mr. Jones with a
beautiful silver loving cup, which was
suitably engraved showing that it was
presenied from the staff of
the Heelley Gold Mining Co., and the
In responding Mr. Jones said it was
true he had come from Australia and
had started in on the lower rungs of
the ladder, and if he had attained success it was due to the unfailing encouragement of his wife and to the
fact that the Company had always encouraged its men to merit promotion
throrrgh hard work and application.
The present board of directors was
composed of splendid men, men whom
it was an honor and a pleasure to serve. The policy of the Company was
to be just and liberal to its employes
ahd any man who wished to make the
most of a good opportunity would find
that opportunity if he were an employe of this Company.
On behalf of Mrs.   Jones, his family
and himself he most heaitily thanked
the friends for their-kind thoughts and
their beautiful  present.
To the tune of  Auld Lang Syne the
company M'pnrated.

The reverend gentleman will reside in Hedley. but will  hold fortnightly services in Princeton.  A news dispatch reports that the  soldiers in one of the larger armies in  Europe have repeatedly seen white  ghosts riding on white horses; the,  ghosts are supposed to he the spirits c>f  the great generals wlro-have fallen.  'Reports of this kind have found  their- way into the newspapers from  several of the nations engaged in the  conflict. A great, many men scolt'at  such things and call them foolish delusions ; but many of the same ones who  scoff, both believe and affirm'that  every man has a spirit which survives  his body anel that it is roaming around  in space. If there is such a spirit  which ��������� survives, why should p*eoplc  not see it? The real trouble conies  through believing that when a nian  elies he is not dead, .that it is only his  body which is gone.  Tbe modern scholar and thinker has  been wont to believe and teach, that  only the darkness of the middle ages  could produce such stories of the  ghosts'of dead horses and men. But  during the last half century, there has  been almost a complete revolution in  what men think upon that subject.  The spiritualistic teaching that man  lives on after death is capturing the  strongest men of science as well as the  untutored ; and- this belief of the survival of the spirit after man's death, is  laying the foundation for some of the  greatest delusions with which satan  has ever been able to deluge the world.  "And then .shall the wicked be revealed whom tbe Lord shall consume  with the spirit.!pfjij.s'mmijh,jind,shan  destroy with the brightness of His  coming:.even Him-whose coming is  after the Working of'Satan with all  power and signs anel lying wonders,  and-with all deceivableness of um-igh-  teousness in them that perish; because  they receive not the love of the truth  that they might! not be saved." [See  2 Thess; 2:8-10.]  Observe that.this text points out  that the coming of Chri.-t is after the  working of Satan with all power and  with signs and lying wonders; this is  but one of the scriptures that tell of  the delusions with which Satan will  flood the world in the last days, and  there is no channel through which he  vyill wor;k more powerfully than  .through the deceptive teaching that  man is conscious after death. [ See  Eccl. 9:5; also Psalms 6:5 and Eccl. 3:  19.] We need to bpVn our minds and  hearts to an understanding of God's  word so that we may not fall under  the spell of the deceptions Satan has  prepared.for this time.

One day last week, while  washing, Mrs. Bowen was so  unfortunate as to break off a  .. needle in her. hand, and had to  go to Hedley. to get help from  Dr.-McEwen. ��������� She went to the  hospital but was able to return  home Tuesday.  Mrs. Bromley and 'Joe went  to Oroville lastMonday evening,  and Miss Ethel on Tuesday. Mr  Bromley went a few weeks before, and as he is very busy at  his trade, he sent for the family  to come.
