C.  The following account of   the new  company organized to work the Nickel  Plate group in this camp is taken from  the Spokesman-Review and emanates  from Phoenix, the presumption being  that most of the data from which it  had been written that   had   not  previously been- made public,  had been'  secured    through' members   , of  the  Gi-anby, some of whom are interested  in the exploration syndicate  as   well.  Considerable of the details which it  cont ains are known  to the Gazette,  but as we-were  given  to understand  that the new company did not   wish  them to be made public at this juncture, they were withheld by us   until  such time as the new company or its  representatives here were willing .that  they should be given  out, and there  was no good  reason   why their'wish  should not be acceded to.  The article   from  the   Spokesman-  Review and the Pioneer,  while fairly  accurate in- the main  was astray in  some of the figures given as  well as  in a few other details  The article is.as follows:  "The option on  the   Nickel Plate,  which is credited by mining men with  being the largest gold mine operated  in Canada, was secured from the Daly-  estate by   an   exploration  syndicate;  composed of forty-eight members of  the United Steel corporation, together  with a group of capitalists who ordinarily associate  themselves with the  so called Cole-Ryan copper enterprise;  For three months a c.orps of mining experts worked quietly making exhaustive drillings and tests, which were of  such a: satisfactory nature as to result  in tlie'syndicate exercising its  option  qn^the property,  and organizing the  Hedley Gold Mining Company, which  ;took the mine over from the exploration syndicate at, fin   actual   cost  of  $715,000.  "The Hedley Gold Mining company  has a capital of 150,000 shares, of which  For the. past two years there has  been great rivalry among the various'  land and ship stations equipped by  the United Wireless as to which was  able' to send'and receive direct .the  greatest distance. > As a rule the land  stations have been able to send farthest  owing-to their more powerful equipment, but' often individual ships of  quite moderate sending power have  achieved some most wonderful results  and been in touch for long intervals  with land stations and other ships at  enormous distances.    ,  Since her equipment in March last  with the most powerful wireless  apparatus of any ship afloat, the Great  Northern's Railway's steamshipMinne-  sota has been attaining some wonderful records, but-' last week she surpassed everything by exchanging  nipssagesrwith Shanghai a distance of  4600 miles when off the west coast of  America about 700 miles.  The telegram from the company's  representative in British Columbia  was as follows :  Vancouver, Sept. 23rd, '09  To A. 'Megruw,        '-  Hedley  Minnesota beat world's record.   Exchanged messages with Shanghai 4600  miles. '  Signed  Chas. L. Parker  PROGRESS IN TRACK-LAYING  Rails  Expected to Reach Priceton Next  ��������� Week.  The end of the steel reached Norman's ranch on Tuesday and is now  past Holmes' flat with the probability  that the steel will reach the bridge at  Princeton next week.  The giaders managed to keep out of  their way and le.-i.ve a straight run  through for the mainline, but grading  on some of the sidings has not yet  been completed and may delay the  track-layers a little.  The  ballasting is  also getting along  very well, better headway being made  because of the shorter haul in having  the steam shovel at Oliver's. There  are two work engines on the gravel  trains and one. on the track-laying  while a fourth engine was-added to the  work force last week to run material  and supplies to the front instead' of1  "having that done by the track-laying  engine.  The bridge-builders Have been busy  for the past ten days getting in the  span oh the third crossiner bridge  which will shortly be completed. They  are still running on the false-work.  A large force of Italians are lifting  track between Ashnola and the second  crossing. They are in camp at Ashnola.  REVISING THE TREATMENT  Mill Specialist Now at Work Sizing Up  the Situation  HOW IT IS WORKING OUT  COLLINS GULCH COAL  Dwellers In Washington State Scoff at  the Freak Laws  Mr. R. Wheeler, of Frintvale,  California, arrived in...-Hedley early  last week and has since been engaged  exporting the reduction plant. Mr.  Wheeler is a mill specialist and a very  successful cyanide man, with a special  aptitude for mill organization. He  has been looking into the construction  of the forty-stamp mill now in use  and the method of treatment generally, and will give the new Company  the benefit of his experience and  doubtless lay out certain changes to "  be effected in the near future. This,  woik is expected to take him several  weeks.  In conjunction with Mr. Wheeler's  examination, large samples of ore  have been shipped out from the Nickel  Plate and Sunnysides properties to  California during the past few weeks  for treatment tests in the most advanced methods of milling and cyanid-  ing known; and with the results of  these to guide-them and Mr. Wheeler  on the ground, it is safe to say that  all leakswhether from defect of treatment or organization will be stopped  and the Nickel Plate criven an opportunity to show what it can do in the  way of close saving as it has done in  economical, mining.

The  company starts with $280,000 in its  treasury.  "Among those connected with the  exploration syndicate are W. E. Corey,  E. H. Gary, Norman B. Beam, V. H.  Broughton, of New York; George E.  Tener, George T. Henry, John G.  Oliver, and W. P. Snyder, of Pittsburg;  and T. F. Cole, John D. Ryan, Chester  A. Congdon and Janies Houston, of  the Northwest.  "The executive committee consists of  W. E. Corey, T. F. Cole, 0. A. Congdon, I. L, Merrill, George. E. Tener,  Janies Hoatston and C. D. Fraser.  I. L. Merrill, who opened the Calumet  & Arizona, is president. T. Walter  Beam is at present directing the operations.  "The sale was put through by M. K.  Rodgers, the well-known mining engineer and former manager of the Nickel-  Plate. It was Mr. Rodgers who originally interested capital in the property  and brought it from a prospect to a  dividend payer.  "The propeity is located in the Si-:  ,milkamecn. It consists of 10 mining  claims and a two-mile tramway connecting the mine with a forty-stamp  mill. It has produced to date 153,000  tons of ore, averaging $11 to $15 per  ton and yielding $900,000 net profit.  The present system consists of stamping to 2(5 mesh concentrating and  cyaniding tailings, giving extraction  of abiiut S~> per cent to 91) per cent.  1 i.'iii'ludo I on I'an'o l-'our.  The Tulameen Coal and Coke company has just sold its- holdings of  2520 acres of coal hinds on Granite-  Creek, Collins'Gulch, to an English  syndicate for approximately $200,000.  Confirmation of the closing of the  deal was contained in a cablegram received from London today. The new  owners intend to prosecute development work on an extensive scale.  The purchase money will be virtually all distributed amongVancou-  ver people, the principal, shareholders  including Messrs. E. J. McFeely, C.  Gardiner Johnson, Mutrie & Brown  and-A.:'P. Allen. ���������  The property was acquired several  years ago and thus far about ten  thousand feet of development work  has been carried out at a cost of $12,-  000. It is said to be regarded, as one  of the most promising coal propositions in the Similkameen district. Six  distinct seams of coal' are reported-to  have an. aggregate .thickness of 38  feet. The coal: is semi-bituminous  and well adapted: for coking and.  steamirig. purposes. The, seams have  been opened up by means of six tunnels. The property is situated only  eleven miles 'from Princeton and the  main line of the V. V. & E. railway is  located only a few miles distant. The  deal was negotiated by Mr. A. P.  Alleti, secretary of the company.  (Oroville Gazette)  Judges are complying with; the fool  laws requiring them to wear a robe  while occupying the bench. Few  jndges have the Romanesque physique  necessary in order to appear to advantage in a toga, and instead of adding  dignity, or aniinposing or awe-inspiring appearance to the wearers, this  robe makes- them ridiculous, to the  amusement of the observer, and- the  humiliation of the official who is compelled to exhibit himself in such raiment.

LABOR pTHEG.T/PI  THREE  NOTED ENTERTAINERS  Hedley lovers of high-class entertain  meiit   will   have   an   opportunity   to  gratify their wishes to-morrow evening  when  they  will have a visit from K.  ���������Pauline Johnson,  the Mohawk,  poet-  entertainer assisted   by   Walter JVIc-  Raye,   humorist.    These artists   have  toured the west before and are  too  well-known to need introduction.   An  additional  treat,  however,  is in store  in the appearance of Lucy Webling.  The editor can   recal   with   pleasure  hearing her about 20 years ago, when  as a child she was  playing the part of  "Little Lord Fantieroy" with an Eng-  Co. that was touring the cities of  eastern Canada, and also can recollect  still more vividly the pleasure derived  in hearing her some five or six vears  later when with the Webling sisters  her exceedingly talented impersonations of Shakspcarian characters in  ���������'Much Ado Nothing" and the "Taming  of the Shrew", seemed extraordinary'  porforamces for one so young. Even  the great mtkuatkuh John Raskin is  Vancouver .World .  It is impossible to avoid" the con-:  elusion that if the Grand Trunk  Pa--  cific Railway Company has'made' do;  ���������representations; of any  sort   to  thej  Dominion  Government   with   regards  to; the desire ,of the company .to be;  freed, from  bondage .to the   clause in!  the existing contract, requiring that  while-labor alone shalljbe.'employed in;  construction.-of:the road, then Govern-!  ment officials   are  singularly   unfortunate in their utterances,  or in .the  reports of their utterances given to  the  public.     If  the remarks   of Mr.  Mackenzie  King,  Minister of Labor,,  on  the subject  before  the Dominion  Trades and Labor Congress at Quebec  yesterday,    are    correctly    reported,  they may betaken to  indicate  that a  most unwelcome andundesirable state  of mind with regard to oriental labor,  obtains in   the  Department of which   jUI P,irts of Canada.   Many of her pro-  ������ I J! !    -1..- *      . .-      I --..-  The following-marriagi- notice taken  from the Vancouver Saturday Sunset-  may seem belated, but comes with  special interest at this time as the  parties thereto will appear in Hedley  this week.  "A marriage of unusual interest took  place at Christ church   on Tuesday,  August 24th,  when  Miss Lucy Webling, of London, England, the original  "Little Lord Fauntelroy" of the English stage  was  united in   marriage to  Mr.  Walter McRaye,   the well known  Canadian  entertainer who  has made  the habitant poems of our own Doctor  Druiiimond his especial study through  years of professional touring from the  Atlantic to the Pacific.  The Rev. C.C.  Owen, D. D.,  performed the marriage  ritual in the presence of a few relatives  and intimate   friends of   the   young  ^couple.    The  bride,   who only arrived  from   England  on   Saturday   looked  very pretty and slender   and frail as  jshe approached the altar on the arm.  of her brother-rin-law Mr. George W.  ���������Edwards.. She was dressed in a fairylike Empire frock of white silk maline-  and,large white hat swathed in chiffon,  and ostrich plumes,   and she carried a.  bouquet of bride roses and carnations.  She was  attended by two small maids  .of- honor Little Lucy Edwards,   her-  niece, and Evelyn Evelcigh, who wore  white mull frocks and carried baskets  of sweet  peas.    Mr.  McRaye was attended  by Mr. Will D.  Howard,   the  handsome young juvenile  lead of the  Lawrence Stock Company,    After the  ceremony the bridal party were given,  a reception and breakfast at the home  of  the bride's  sister,   Mrs.   Edwards,  Haro street, after which Mr. and Mrs.  McRaye left for Victoria. The gifts to  the bride were very numerous and came  from  England,   the United States and  on   record  as 1.0 the delight   he  experienced in hearing her about that time.  Mr. King is the head.   Mr. King is reported  as assuring the delegates that  "the Dominion Government had received no request to have  the Grand:  Trunk  Pacific constructed  by Asiatic  Labor"���������which surely,   is a.  peculiar  form of expression  to  be used  by a  man  as skilled   in the use of exact  terms as   Mr.   King   has   frequently-  shown himself to be���������and that "should  such    a  request   be  received;    there  would be ample time given for all,representations  to be made."   This, indeed,  is eminently satisfactory:   the  sentence which  immediately follows  in the despatch is considerably less so,  however.     Mr. King declared "that if  Asiatics were not allowed entry the  construction  of the   G. T. P.   would  cost an  enormous additional  sum in  the next few years."  The apparent disposition of Mr.  King and lesser lights of his department to dwell upon the enormous loss  which will be entailed by scrupulous  adherence to the. terms of the contract  as now existing is to|be deplored.  The  fessional associates sent remembrances.  Autograph photographs were received  from Miss Ellen Terry, Miss Fay Davis,  George Alexander,  William Haviland  and Lewis Waller.    Messages  of congratulation   were, received   from   the  Hon.   George P.  Grahan, minister of  railways,  and  Wm.  Jennings Bryan  and  other friends;in  the East.    The  groom's gift to the bride was a long  gold neck  chain of rare design with a  pendant dull gold Roman cross, and  to the wee  bridesmaids gold  and blue  enamelled   carrier   pigeon   brooches  Mr. and Mis. McRaye will reside temporarily in  Vancouver, when they return  after visiting Victoria, Cumberland, Chemainus and Comox.    MissE.  Pauline Johnson,  who has been professionally associated   with  Mr.  McRaye for the last eight years and who  claims  the romantic privilege of having introduced him  to  his   bride   in  England three years ago,  is  lending  the  young couple  her suite  in Howe-  street for the   closing   week   of   the  honeymoon.

It does not require  much delving beneath the surface or reading between the  lines to see reputations tumbling, for the inferences are so  plain and unavoidable (that is,  if.'reputations can be said to  tumble which have not yet  soared except in the estimation  of .the possessors thereof).  In the deal itself,  taking the  figures as they are given in the  article, and   the   events   that  have transpired and representations   which  must been  made  to have rendered  such  figures  possible, the jjeople  of  Hedley  as well as the late  owners are  at  the dividing   of   the  ways.  They are up against the necessity of accepting either  one  of  two  unenviable    conclusions,  both   fatal   alike  to   anything  bearing the semblance  of a reputation.    Disappointment and  temporary  financial   loss  have  been the portion  of property-  holders here  as   the  result  of  a veritable stopping of the hands  of the clock for four years, and  the figures  given   out   to  the  public now in the article  referred to, tell only part of the story  of all the wealth which has now  slipped from the grasp of former  owners as  the  direct result of  inordinate pessimism in a quarter where they had  reason  to  look only for faithful  efficient  service inasmuch as they were  paying for that.  Operations that' have been  under" way since the 12th of  August for the new owners and  undoubtedly by their direction  seeing that they are practically  a reversal of the policy pursued  up to that date, as well as an  outline of some of the improvements contemplated, appear to  be a strong vindication qi the  views and intentions  of ,ijM.iJK.  Rodgers, and delayed four'years  by his rernoval^frdm' the'mah-  agement   in   1905.    Work, ��������� for  instance, is resumed in the lower  tunnel    driven   by  Rodgers  prior to October  1905,  but discontinued and blackguarded by  R.B.Lamb;  and  Lamb's  condemnation of it  was concurred  in by his succesor  who had all  trackage removed from it.   The  track has been put back within  the past few  weeks and good  pay  ore will be corning  out of  there  as soon  as the tram line  can   be completed  to it.    Then  again it is   seen that one of the  improvements  foreshadowed is  the  introduction  of  a  sliming  plant���������in other  words the very  thing proposed by  Mr. Rodgers  in  1905 and  explained   in  the  Minister  of   Mines   report   for  that year in its reference to the  Nickel Plate.    Yet  we do not  wish our  readers to infer from  this that  Mr. Rodgers is in any  way dictating  the policy of the  new company,  for although he  is one  of the largest individual  stockholders in  the  new company,  if  not the largest, he is  taking and will take no active-  part in its-future management,  having interests enough  of his  own  outside to  occupy  his attention.  The reversion to the cardinal  points of his policy, however,  and the choice as manager of  Mr. Jones whom he himself  chose years ago as his mine  superintendent and worked in  accord with him, is a distinct indorsation of Mr. Rodgers, and  especially so in view of the fact  that the views which Mr.  Rodgers and his mine superintendent held in common in  earlier stages of the mine's history survived the flood .of pessi-  mish under which it has so long  been submerged, and finally  won out.  If the subject  were  pursued  any further and the  careers of  some of the parties to the little  melodrama    were   dealt   with,  both before and after their connection with the Nickel Plate,  (including   the   whole   of   the  Barnes-King incident) the faces  of not a few in Hedley might  blanch when they come to realize how narrow has been  our  common escape and how great  the risk we all ran.     As for the  Daly interests and those responsible  for them, it would be impertinence  on our part to  endeavor to point for  them any  moral or adorn the tale.    They  are  of age  and   can   read for  themselves  the lesson  that lies  so plainly  on the  surface.    Towards them  the people of Hedley have no reason to entertain  anything  but the  most  kindly  regard.     We  owe them much,  and if in certain instances their  mistaken judgment   of   erring  humanity was nearly the cause  of our undoing,   they too  have  suffered heavily from, the same  '";:; '-'-'NOTitfe,;^,  / rib irf li '��������� .

Mrs. M. K. Rodgers and children,  and Mrs. H. S. Joyner, arrived in town'  on Tuesday morning coming in from  Spokane in Supt. Morgan's private  car which left (hem at their own gate.-  This was vastly different from some of  Mrs. Rodgers' earliest trips into the  Similkameen when she had to ride in  on horseback as the only' available  means of transportation.  The Gazette was shown a head of  wheat this week from Nick Pickard's  ranch up the river. It was one head  of 23 which grew from one grain of  wheat sown, and on this head were  3(5 grains. If it were not for the, working expenses the farmer would-have  about the most able- bodied rake-off  in the way of profits that could be  picked up in any business.  On Tuesday . superintendent. Morgan's private car went up the river,  and accompanying him were Chief  Engineer A. H. Hogehmd of the Great  Northern, and J. H. Kennedy, Chief  Engineer of the V. V. & E. Their car  was going up to the end of the track,  which was then within a mile of  Holmes' flat, and from theie they,  were going to drive to Otter Flat  where it is hoped they will decide to  let new contracts and hustle the work  on to completion.  The Gazette regrets that in last  week's announcement of the visit of  E. Pa.uline Johnson and her associates,  the date was given Oct. loth when it  should have been .the first. The letter  received in reference to it was partly  responsible for the error, the "s" in  "1st" being made to resemble too  closely the figure "5". It is to be  hoped that those who might be deceived as-to the proper date will learn  the difference in time.

Sunday the writer had the pleasure  of visiting and looking over the lake  side home of Mr. and.Mrs. Geo. Bo w-  erman, ,and enjoying the hospitality  of that estimable family.   The place  consists of 40 acres, on the east shore  of Osoyoos lake, just above the old Okanogan Smith ranch.   That portion of  the land fronting directly on the lake  is quite level, easily susceptible to irrigation, consisting of about half of the  whole tract, while  the east half, more  inland, is broken and rolling.   About  the only method of carrying water to  trees set out thereon would be by pipes  extended to each individual tree.  This  could, and may,  be done,   but would  entail considerable expense,   although  in the end the orchard thus provided  with   water would   become   of  such  value as to fully justify going to the.  cost.    Last spring Mr. Bowerman set  out GOO   fruit   trees,   some   of   them  peaches,   principally,   however,    the  most   commercially  desirable   apple,  and the young trees at this time are  in a very thrifty and healthy condition, having made  most satisfactory  growth this   summer.   Not  only do  the condition of the times demonstrate  the fecundity of the soil,  but between  the rows he has raised the finest vegetables from the most prolific garden in  the country. All kinds of garden truck  has   yielded    prodigeously,   and   the  quality could not  be excelled.     The  trouble  is the yield has been so abundant that much of the product will go  to waste, as there  is not, a local demand to absorb the surphis.  All kinds  of vegetation grows with almost tropical luxuriance,  and could Mr. Bower-  man dispose of all in the edible line  that he could raise  the garden alone  could be made a source of large income  while  waiting for  the. fruit trees  to  come   into   bearing.   He  has   a   six-  horse power gcsolinep\imp with which  he irrigates.    It has a capacity of 200  gallons a minutes, and a lifting power  of 100 feet.     The soil near the lake  is heavy, but rich in plant nutriment,  while further back it is of a lighter  sandy character,  still equally as well  adapted for the growth of trees.

"The new owners estimate -130,000  tons of ore in sight at the Nickel Plate  averaging $12 per ton and figure there  is a net profit of between $6 and $7  per ton in the treatment of this ore.  The future of the property rests, of  course, in the large bodies of ore which  hove been drilled and thoroughly  sampled, and which in the'opinion of  president I. L. Merrill, warrants the  statement that "the chances are good  for a. dividend payer for a long time to  come." The mine is now earning  $200,000 net per annum.  "Elaborate preparations for betterments and enlargements   are  already  being made, among which will be  the  addition of a sliming plant.     Heretofore the  tailings froin  the mill have  been allowed  to flow    down   the  Similkameen river,  .but   the new  company purpose treating   these   with   a  sliming plant, as tests show this should  add $1 per  ton   to   net   profit.   The  company also plans equipment to prevent the annual close down of a month  to two months occasioned by lack of  water.    Development   work    will    be  prosecuted vigorously, with a view  to  increasing the ore l-eserves and enlarging the scope of   operations generally.

T.--P.  j <\. ,vv o> <���������������-���������������-*; -A  TTj���������T  Continued fron Page One.  point   from   which   the   Department  should start,in considering this matter, the last word beyond which consideration of it should never be permitted to wander,  is just this, that  under no circumstances can a proposal  to bring in  oriental  labor to be erii-;  ployed   on  the   construction   of the  G. T. P. railway be entertained.   Officials of   the department ought not to  dwell upon employment   of  oriental  labor as a possibility of the situation,  and all thought of such a thing should  be firmly and steadily wiped from the  minds of officials of the railway company and from the rhinds of the contractors as often  as it may findlodg  ment- there.   That the Labor situation  at this end  of the  line can be dealt  with,  without the  bogey of oriental  labor beiug dragged in,  we are fully  convinced.    In these columns yesterday we referred to an offer which has  been made to Sir Wilfrid Laurier to  supply good Canadian   workmen for  construction   work  on  the   G.   T.  P.  railway, on conditions  which are not  superior  to those which   the company  and the contractors claim exist at present.    If realization   of the   utter impossibility of oriental labor being employed is driven home to the minds of  the railway company and of the contractors and advantage   is.   t:\ken  of  such offers us that just referred to, all;  fear of an. "enormous addition" to the  cost of construction,   or of an equally  undesirable addition to the time spent  in construction will be obviated.  t  ���������  ���������  ���������  w  I  60   YEARS'  EXPERIENCE  Trade Marks  Designs  Copyrights _c.
