This dam was constructed'-.ibout a  year 'ago by the Daly Reduction Co.  to retain the water in Twenty-Mile  lake, which would thus be used as a  reservoir, the water being held back in  the spring and  early summer when  has been cross-cut, and in it also is  evidence of a cross-cut fissure of later  origin cutting the " ledge.

Farther south, still,  in some smaller openings the quartz is  very clean, and some blende is in evidence with the mispickel..  The huge amount of ore on the  dumps will go to show that, if there  were transportation the. 'shipping of  ore from this: property might begin  at once.

' Unfortunately this  summer the dam sprang a leak and before it could bo repaired and made-  tight enough to hold back the. water,  about a two months'supply had escaped; The clam had raised the lake  some four or"five feet above its normal summer level and in consequence  a eonside.rablc-porcioii of the old trail  to the"(Jolden Zone which lay along  the lake shore 'was, submerged and a  new trail further back on the hill-side  among the fallen timber had been cut  out.  The whole country thereabout' was  thoroughly characteristic of height  of laud that marks the source of all  streams in mo un tuitions countries.  Here were the lakes, marshes, broken  ridges, springy hill-sides and little  brooks gurgling over miniature cascades and sparkling from their beds in  the black mould. North of the lake  the frail climbs over a ridge which has  a considerable descent on its northern  side, into -another basin that drains  into Tweiity-Mile creek and northward  of that is the mountain upon which  The- Golden Zonk G.hoct  -is situated, the distance from the Nickel Plate being about teii or twelve  miles by the trail find road. The  group consists of four claims, the Golden Zone, Silver Bell, B. C. and Irish  Boy which were staked 011 the 20th of  June', 1900 by the present owners, .T...T.  Marks, Paul .Brodhagen and: J.

The bride was given away by her  father. She was becomingly attired in  silk mousseline do soic over white taffeta, and wore a veil and orange blossoms. She was attended by her sisters  the Misses Gardaand Nora Stitt, who  were dressed in cream silk voile.  . The groom was supported by Mr. H.  P. Archibald.  Mrs C. F. Cotton, sister of the bride,  was matron of honor, and at the post-  11 uptal reception Mrs. Cotton was assisted by Mrs. Frame and Mrs. A. Barker.  The happy couple left in the afternoon by theC. P.

The ground where the best showings  are to be seen is thickly covered with  a dense undergrowth  of young pines,  and fallen   timber   and   coated   Avith  drift or wash, and only from its bearing with other exposures   was   there  any suggestion of its'  existence there.  The first discovery  was  made on  an  iron capping on the Irish Boy,  but in  prospecting from a deep-draw  farther  south and west, a genuine ledge;  was  discovered, of generous width,   lying  between granite on the northwest and  porphyry on the southeast.     Following the line of contact; in a   northeasterly direction the lend  was uncovered  in several places, showing the  continuity,   and various crosscuts  give evidence   of the strength of the  vein   in  width.    There are regular Walls   with  gouge and slickensides, the strike  being    approximately      northeast   and  southwest and the dip apparently   to  the  southeast.  The ore is a quartz gangue with mispickel carrying gold and silver with  -some nickel and cobalt. The nickel  in all probability is from the arsenide  in nickeliferous pyrrhotite which is  the most common occurrence.  The develowment work and the  manner in which it has been done testifies both to the industry and good  judgment   of   the   owners.     There a  ;- The recent celebration must have  brought-home to nearly every good  ���������Hedleyite the great lack of.a local  band. A celebration seeins Hat without.one, and to attempt to get a band  in from1 the outside is out of the question, for it would cost the price of a  set of instruments to do so.  A plan has been suggested, which, if  taken hold of as it should be, will give  the town a. band of its own  without  having to beg.    If twenty persons will  say that they will each be one of twenty to give .$15, the sum of .$300 can  be  raised, which, with a few smaller contributions from  others,  will  be  sufficient to start the  thing off in  good  shape.    The secretary-treasurer of the  orchestra,    Mrs.  W.  .1.   Forbes,   has  agreed to  receive  such  subscriptions.  No money need be put up  until the 20  names are secured.    Simply go to Mrs.  Forbes and. tell   her  that  if  nineteen  others will each give thatamount, that  you will do so, and when   the  twenty  names are procured she  will  let  you  know when to pay  the  money.    Now  is the time to start  in   with  the  long  winter   nights   coming,   for  practice.  The town has a thoroughly competent  leader resident  here,   and  if the  instruments are procured  he will  rustle  the players and  have  them  in  good  shape for next spring.  Mr. A.H.B. Macgowan, M.L.A.. was  interviewed in Nelson a few days ago.  He has been touring the upper country  and said:  "As 1 came down Okanagan Lake, I  was surprised at the number of stops  we were making, many of them at  ���������places, not mentioned on the timetables. I couldn't see any appearances  of settlement to'justify it, and J inquired the reason., I1 found that we  were taking on boxes of .fruit by the  hundred. The whole lake is lined with  fruit farms.; ;  "The country is being settled with  remarkable rapidity, and with the very  best class���������men of substance and of experience, in most cases successful, of  the very kind of woik they have before  them.  "The Ellis estate scheme is already a  success. I mustn't tell you'the private  business of Shatford and Company,  but this is a fact they won't mind having published; they have sold in six  months more land than they predicted  in their prospectus would be sold in a  year  "Well, I was delighted with the  orchard country of Okanagan. From' ���������  the foot of the lake I started into the  Similkameen -and visited Keremeos.  Hedley and Princeton. Every whoic I  found people expecting early railway  connection, and confident- that the result would be prosperity.  "I didn't visit the Nickel Plate mine.  The hill looked too steep, and I knew  that the mine was there witboutseeing  it. I went through the Daly Reduction  Works. They are splendidly equipped,  remarkably so when you remember  that all the heavy machinery has been  hauled in by teams. As a Canadian 1  was pleased to see that nearly all th  machinery was from Sherbrooke, Que.  The only piece I saw being repaired,  or indeed needing repair, was of American make.  "The grounds of expectation ? Well,  it isn't only hope. Parties of Great  Northern engineers have- been on the  ground for some time, working hard.  Last Tuesday.Mr. Hogeland, chief engineer of the whole Great Northern  system, left Hedley to ride over the  Hope mountains.  "The Coquihalla Pass? I don't know.  They may expect to find an easier and  shorter routed They are certainly intending and preparing to build.  "At Princeton, at the junction of  the Similkameen and Tulam'een rivers,  there is a'magnificent body of coal, i  walked through a tunnel for a hundred  yards. It was six feet square, with  sides, floor and roof all cord. A shaft  has been sunk and a .seam of coal found  twenty-seven feet thick. The coal is  ���������finost'kirid "of steam coal.  "It struck -me that- it would be a  splendid thing if Okanagan and Similkameen were connected by a railway.  Each district produces what the other  needs most.  "Railway construction and general  building are going ahead very fast  round Midway. My trip has been altogether very* interesting and enjoyable."  .Work has been going on steadily unfile past week in putting in the telephone exchange.. New poles that are  considerably higher have been put in  in place of the old. The exchange is  expected to be in operation in about a  week or ten davs more.  ^���������j*j-9333393aaa9a'3������=9a9a-33f" I HEDLEY,    -    -    -    B.C.  large deep open cut 30 feet long of  which IS feet is in ore, and samples  taken from this have given $80 in gold.

On going-  out of the store he sppeared to be as  well.as ever, but on going into the  house he made signs to Mrs. Schubert that he was unable to speak, the  blood from his lungs evidently choking him. Very little is known concerning him; but it is believed that his  people live in Minnesota. He had  been in Mr. Schubert's employ for a  little over a year, and was quiet and  inoffensive.  The pipe was put in during the past  week between the mill and the power  house to use the tail water from the  pel tons in the stamp mill. Extra  tanks are being installed on the south  end of the mill to increase the cyanid-  ing capacity.  The liceuce Commissioners of districts in which there is railway construction are being importuned by applicants for licences for wayside  houses. It is fortunate that the Attorney-General's department has expressed its views on this matter, for it-  makes it easier for the Commissioners,  to do their duty. A wayside house-  that is called into existence on the eve  of railway construction would be found  in nine cases out of ten to be a grog-  gery pure and simple which would  cause endless 'trouble among the navvies and delay the work of construction.

To the Editoh:  In your issue of the 24th inst. you  devote two columns to a. hot-air editorial filled with misrepresentations, in  an attempt to give backing to your  unjustifiable attack on '.our- worthy  member, Duncan Itoss, M. P.  You are amusing, though niost inconsistent, when you question my prominence as a Liberal and right to reply  when in the same breath you -attribute  me with having accomplished such a  remarkable feat as to dispossess Mr.  Wade of the post office. Indeed, it  was numerous prominent Liberals who  requested me to reply.  The statement- that my using the  smelter flat as an illustration to^uiy  argument would do the place an injury  is too childish and ridiculous for a  moment's consideration; It brought  the true conditions existing at Penticton right home to the Hedley residents  and made a hard argument to combat;  did it hot,,Mr. Editors' You take exception to 111 y illustration because the  S. O. Land Co. bought the remaining  unsold lots in the old townsite. Did  this fact abate their efforts to locate  the business portion on the new town-  site, and did it help the residents of j  the Old?  You endeavor to blind your readers  to the real issue by denying that any  townsite feeling existed; if hot, why  were intending locators told that if  they located on the new townsite they  would have the good will of the company? And why were the company's  street improvements confined to the  new townsite when the old towns-people had to make their own ?. The very  ring of your article reads antipathy  emanating from some prejudiced party, and is ample proof to any reader  that ill-feeling did exist. You cautiously intimate that -more capital is  invested in buildings on the new town-  site than on the old; the most casual  observer would decide in favor of the  latter.  I am informed by a party who has  no interest in either townsite that the  old has the majority of bona-fide.resi-  dent property holders,  and  that Mi  TENDERS  TENDERS will be received up to September  ���������Wth, 1!K)5, for hatiliug .500 tons of coal from  Princeton to Hedley.

Poit Simpson and Kittimat were both   thought  to be  likely  points  for the terminus,  but the hind in both these  places   was  held by   private   speculators who   demanded exorbitant prices, and  finally  the company approached  the  Provincial Government for land at Tuck's Inlet, and here was  an   opportunity  for  the Government to gain for   the   province a. concession from the  company  which the Government at Ottawa, had  failed to obtain, viz. a stipulation  fixing the time in which work on the Pacific end must be begun.    The deal specifies that the Government will   grant  to the Company ten thousand acres of  land at a dollar per acre, with the customary reservation provided for in section 32 of the Land  Act which   makes  the Government own a quarter  interest in the townsite with the additional  stipulations that of the  Govornment's  portion of the townsite there must   be  at least 1000   feet  of  frontage  on   the  sea, and that the company must begin  work in the erection of wharves, yards  stations &<:���������. before the first   of   .June.  lOOii.

She had been ailing  for some time, and the trip from the  Coast to Midway with her uncle and  aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Gaunce, instead of  improving her condition as it was  hoped, proved ineffectual. Mr Atherton was very much wrapped up in his  family, and the bereavement will be a-  severe one.

No one acquainted with the present  location of the post office could deny  that it is the most convenient location  possible for the majority.of both town-  sites. Mr. Shatfoul admits as much in  ���������his two-column nightmare, the length  of which only measures his disappointment at not being able to locate the  post office on the now towi^ite, where  property values would have been enhanced by its presence.  In your issue of the 10th inst. you  stated Mr. Wade notified the P. O.'Inspector that he intended to move the  post office, and that official recommended to the Department the removal be allowed; also that when Mr. Ross  stales the Department was not informed he states what is not true. The  following copies of telegrams will  prove that it is you who is untruthful,,  and not Mr. Ross, whom you accuse:  Hedley, Aug. 20th, 1905.  R. M.

(Sgd.) W. B. S^rrni, Sec'y.  Had Mr. Wade given the Inspector-  the required official notice that capable officer would have referred it to  the Postmaster General for his decision. There may have been personal  correspondence between them but'  certninlv not official.  Why did Mr. Wade not comply with  one of the most important rules of the  Post Office Department? Did ho think  as you evidently do���������that II vears  service gave him permission to remove  the post office to wherever he wished,  or was it because he knew the Inspector could not recommend the location  and thought the old townsiters were  not sufficiently awake-, to their own  interests to protest?  Mr. Ross received numerous strong  protests to the removal and rc-advisc.d.  the Department not to allow the re-  moval until they were considered, but  neither Mr. Ross nor the Department-.  were considered in the matter as Mr.  Wade moved it without oven risking '  for the nocosary permission. The Department then wived him to return it  to the old site until such time as the  question of removal could be considered: this ho refused to do, so that thei'e  was no alternative but dismissal. The  Government had acted before thoy received ol- even heard of the petition  that was so largely signed by nonresidents. .'.'���������"������������������ .  Your articles on this subject are but'"  the whimperings of disappointed town-  site booinsters who have learned- that  post offices are for the. convenience of  the people and not to be moved around  at will for townsite purposes.  Mr. Ross acted throughout with the  fairness befitting a representative of  the people, regardless of the fact that  some of the most prominent Liberals  in -his '-constituency are interested in  the S.-O. Land Co.*  I einpha.tical.ly deny that I had any  application into the Government for  consideration when the new appointment was made, and also that I. am  the author of my own letters and not  connected with "Ajax," as you intimate.

I   The telegram from Coulfersimply goes  "   to prove the position the Gazette took,  viz.. that the  Department attempted,  by a- quibble; to justify Mv. Wade's dismissal.   The Jesuitical mental reservations and this juggling with   words  is  too thin:  the people can  see;   through  it.     The  whole  thing  boils  down   to  what is oi- is not to be considered " official   notice."   Mr. Ross admits that  there   was  correspondence.      Will  he  tell   us   on   what   kind  of  paper Mr.  Wade's notice should have been  written to be considered "official   notice,"  and not "private correspondence;" and  will they tell   us why,   if Mv. Wade's  notice; was not according  to- form,   it  should have been sufficiently "official"  to have been the cause of Mr. Greenfield being sent to examine and report.  Mr. Re vol y has evidently ���������been at the  feet, not of Gamaliel, but of Ignatius  Loyola, for look  how  he  can  juggle  with words, equivocate  and  mentally  reserve.   He says he had no "application   into the  Government when the  new appointment was made."   There  is no information given there as to who  all he had asked to boost for him.    He  "emphatically denies,"    too,   that he  was the author of his own letters.  The Gazette is willing to leave this  matter with the people; at Penticton,  who are most concerned. This closes  the controversy se> far as these columns  are concerned.
