C,  correspondent  Avrites:   Any man  who  keeps hid ear  to  the grounel  these   days  can   hear*  coming the mining hooni Mutt will echo  to the four* corners of:  the  continent.  Not the lithographed-stock-certificate  mining boom of the early '90's, nor the  later Cobalt craze,  but  the digging,  drilling,  blasting,   hoisting,   shipping  and smelting kind of  mining  boom.  The Nicola and Similkameen valleys  Avill be the centre of attraction.    All  they need is the completion of the C.  P. R.   or G. N. R,,  both of AA*hich are  built part way in.   The. C. P.R. is now  at Nicola on the north, the G. N. R. is  at Keremeos on the south.    It laid the  last rail and ran the first train a couple  of  AA'ecks  age).     If the   management  lives  up to its  promises  it Avill  push  north now with all haste.     The gap is  only a little over a hundred miles long,  but it promises to prove the richest  hundred miles of  territory in British  Columbia.   Already the C. P. R. has  an  enormous  tonnage in sight at the  Nicola coal mines.     The G. N. R.  has  tapped one of the finest fruit,' cattle  and agricultural districts in the proAr-  ince at the south end.    Each road is at  the edge of the mineralized zone,  on  the north the Aspen Grove camp, south  of that the   Bear   Creek,   Graveyard  Creek, Tulameen, Siniilkameem camps,  Voigt's camp, Copper Mountain camp;  south of that again are  Hedley,  probably   the   largest   gold-hearing   reef  outside of the Rand in the Avorld ; Aspen  Grove for Copper;   Bear Creek,  gold, copper nnd platinum  placer; all  the other gold,   copper,   sih'er,   coal  and iron..  The weather came very far from doing the square thing by the Hedley  Labor Day celebration. The attendance of outsiders was somewhat better  than last year. Among the visitors,  Princeton, Keremeos, Oroville, Penticton anel Fairview were represented,  but the rain started in early in the  forenoon of the first day and kept it  up steadily until Avell on towards the  evening.  THE RIFLE SHOOTING  was the first event and took the greater part of the forenoon, although more  than half the match had to be shot off  in a steady rain. The shooting on the  whole Avas fairly good and remarkably  so considering the conditions, heating  that of the Labor Day match of two  years ago by a long odds. There were  fourteen entries, and the following  Ave.re the winners:  200 Yards���������1st Boeing, 2nd Corrigan,  3rd Rolls.  300 Yards���������1st Forbes, 2nd French,  3rel Boeing.-  400 Yards���������1st Coirigan. 2nd Boeing,  3rd French.  Aggregate���������1st French, 2nd Boeing,  3rd Coirigan. 4th Rolls.  To save time, ties were decided by  the range officer on the Aralne of shots  in reverse order. The only instances  where it had to he done were: between  Corrigan and Rolls for second prize in  the 200 yards match; betAveen Forbes  and French for 1st prize in 300 yards  match, and betAveen Boeing and Wood-  mass for 3rd prize in 300 yards match.  As all competitors did not shoot the  full complement of shots at each range,  the full aggregate standing is not given, hut the folleiAving is the standing  of the highest seven, which takes in  all the prize winners :  200  20  of the evening entertainment for Labor  Day was a capital arrangement, feir it  provided some variety for,'those who  do not'.care for dancing.     The  new  school building came in  most-opportune te> provide room for it?,- and the  situation was helped out admirably by  the assistance lent by the Daly Reduction  Co.  Avho.se  management   kindly  attended to the lighting and did it in  good style.    Neit only was  the* stage  duly supplied with a ioav of bright in-  canelescents,   but an  arc   light made  night  brighter  than  day in  the ballroom,      and      what     was     perhaps  appreciated     move   than   either   was  the lights placed at the. corner of the  streets to light the way OA'er the rough  ground leading to the, school building.  In   the  lighting,   Mr.  Anderson,   the  Company's  electrician,  and his assistant, Coile, gave their time gratis in  doing the   wiring.    Mr. Ross and  his  stall" have the thanks of all concerned  for the; courteous aid which contributed so much to the success of the CA-ent.  That Family Alfair had some exceedingly amusing situations and was thoroughly enjoyed by the large audience  Avhich packed the room.   The cast did  their   parts  admirably ��������� particularly  those taken  by  the ladies.    Between  acts,   a.  few   specialties   Avere   given,  among which special mention may he  made of the fine rendering of Lasca  by Mrs. S. E. Hamilton, who also had  what might perhaps be   termed the  leading role in "That Family Affair,"  although the play seemed to have been  written with a- A7iew to bringing out all  the parts.   Tt is hoped that the Hedley  Dramatic Club  will follriAV up this initial success Avith other performances  during the fall and winter.  Shortly after conclusion of the play,  the ball Avas in full SAving in the adjoining room. Music Avas supplied by  an Oroville. orchestra, at the head of  Avhich was Hedley's old protege the  Professor. About thirty couples were  present taking part, Avith many onlookers.  BUILDING NOW TO  HEDLEY  Full    Arrangements    for    Construction  North of Keremeos.  The V: V. ������fc E. have succeeded'in-  convincing all between Grand Forks  anel Keremeos that work on the way  to Hedley is practically now beginning.  Supplies for the work are just arriving in Keremeos, and on Tuesday a  phone message was received from'Geo.  Cunningham, jr., superintendent ' of  commissary for Stewart ������fc Welch, who  is now on the ground, asking for permission to locale the>. fir-si camp out of  Keremeos on the flat this side of "Webster's ferry, and forming the upper  part of the Price property, owned by  L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., and others.  It is reported that most of the work  between Keremeos and Hedley will be  done by Stewart <fc Welch themselves*  and very little of it done by sub-contractors. Chief Engineer Kenneily is  also reported to be in favor of cemi-  pleting the grade freim the present end  of the steel (Avhich is now something  over a mile this side of Keremeo*-.) to  the next bridge over the Similkameen  and laying the track on it so as tei deliver material required for the portion  across the riven* by rail.  If that programme be folloAved, it  would mean that- the next camp to he  established north of the; present one,  now being put- in, Avill be*, somewhere  this side of BrushA' Bottom.

Pkntigton, B.C.  The Helena Independent of Aug. 29  tells of the resignation of II. B. Lamb,  and XV. II. Brule from the Barnes-  King. This seems to ha.A*e been an  annual occurrence in the past with  these gentlemen, hut from the* way in  which it now conies several months  ahead of schedule time, it is possible  that they are now going to change,  from hardy annuals to blossom out as  monthly roses.   -���������-   Mr. L. W. Shatford, M.P.P. returned  on Mondav afternoon after*accompanying Hon. F. J. Fulton, minister of  Lands and Works and Mr. Carpenter  through the Similkameen and Okanagan valleys wlie-re they have been investigating the c-ue'stion of irrigation.  Possibly in no other part of the province Avill they finel information on  the subject ready to hand anel as complete as Mr Shatford has been able to  put them em to in the Similkameen  riding, where the Southern Okanagan  Land Cei. have made so extensive surveys and plans, and in addition to  these they had use of the information  Avhich Mr. C.

The  steady   rain   Avhich   prevailed  during the rock-drilling, marred the  enjoyment of this event.   Three teams  entered for it,   although the third Avas  generally   understood   to  be   for the  purpose of filling in, anel it was generally believed that the contest would be  between the GreenavoocI team,  made  up of Sandrys anel Man nelson, and the  Nickel Plate team,  composed of Chas.  j Burtch and Carlson.    The Greenwood  team drilled 31 j! inches, and the Nickel  Plate team 30-j   inches,   with the third  team, Tom Wilson   and Tim Griffin,  showing   2-1   inches.     Last   year   the  winning  team  did 33������  inches  in the  same   boulder,   and   Burtch   and his  partner 30,3 inches.    It is but fair, however, to the Greenwood team to state  that they   had  bad  luck  with   their  steel, seve-ral drills breaking.    Tommy  Murray,  who accompanied them, assured  us that the  impression  Avhich  seemed to he entertained in some quarters that their steel had been sharpened by  "Chateaguay." the  noted steel  sharpener of the Boundary, was a mistake.    They sharpened the steel themselves, and did it- hurriedly before coming aAvay.    Burtch anel Carlson's steed  Avas   sharpened   at   Nighthawk,   and  stood the>, rock very well.  CONCERT AND  DANCE.  It was most fortunate that the Committee in making arrangements for  evening entertainment abandoned the  idea eif an outside platform such as  they had last year, and the experience  gained should make them careful not  to run such risk again. The Hedley  Dramatic Club had for some time in  view the plan of giving a play in aid of  the hospital, and to bring it on as part  HASE    BALL.  The baseball game, Avhich Avas billed  feir the first day,   was postponed for  drier Aveather and was finally pulled  off on Tuesday.    The Oroville base-  bailers,  who during the present year  have taken numerous scalps, put in an  appearance.   Hedley during the summer has had no team, hut as two or  three "good   tins" came   down   from  Princeton,  and Tommy Daly Avas up  from Keremeos,  they got together a  nine, to give the -visitors from across  the line a game, with Daly in the box  for Hedley and Elmo Henderson catching.    Considering the. Avant of practice  this make-up nine played a fair game.  Elmo,  hoAvever, was too light behind  the hat,  and as no other man on the  team Avas prepared to say he could do  any better, he Avas allowed to  play it-  out.    Daly started in  throwing an effective ball, but there is nothing more  calculated to take the heart out of a  pitcher than errors behind the bat and  in the field.   Long, the Oroville pitcher, after the second innings, discoA*cred  in his satchel of curves a variety that  required a heap of fanning and continued to fish  them  out Avith shameful  regularity for the balance of the game.  The  Hedley field  was played for the  most part in  pretty fair shape, there  being some neat pick-ups and  throws  and a healthy appetite for (lies.   The  teams were made up as follows :  Oroville.���������Isbestor 1. f., Sargent 2nd  b., Keve 1st b., Long, pitcher, Jordan  catcher, Sailing s. s., Gier 3rd b., Sain  c. f., Teddy r. f.

Although the trap-shooting, like  others of the early morning events,  did not draAV as many spectators as  some of the others, keen interest was  felt by all who Avere present, among  Avhoni Avere a fair percentage of ladies.  In this, as in the rifle-shooting, the  eiompetitors numbered 14. The contest  Avas neck and neck for a considerable  time, and for first place Avas not fully  decided until the last round was fired,  Bert Harris, of Hedley, Avinning the  sweep-stake of $25 Avith 14 birds out of  Minister of Mines Report  During the last three years a con-,  sidevable amount of prospecting Avith  Diamond drills has been done.    The  Diamond Vale Coal and Iron Co. has  been operating extensively (with the  drill on its coal  areas in the  Quil-  chena basin, and recently on its Cold-  Avater property.     The disclosures on  Quilchena were satisfactory, but too  remote from a railway for a present  shipment.     This  company secured  a  large area of the best coal lands in  the   Nicola   and     Coldwater     basin,  through Avhich  the C.  P. R.  branch  line passes.    After, several drill tests,  which  resulted   favorably,   the  company selected  a  colliery    site,     and  things are noAv in preparation for the  opening up of these properties.    All  the  work  is  done  substantially  and  with a vieAV to permanensy.    Everything is now ready for shaft-sinking,  and, as the depth of the first seam is  comparatively   small,   the     company  hopes to have an output of coal  at,  an early date.  The Nicola Valley Coal & Coke Co.  "(locally  known     as     the   G-aresche-  Green),   also   located   on   the   Cold-  Avater, has a large coal seam-to start  on,  an outcrop  on  the hillside  of a  good  quality of coal,  which  can  be  worked by tunneling.    Under the efficient management of A. Faulds, M.  E.,  this  property   is  being  prepared  for coal shipment.    The local demand  has   been   fully   supplied ;   also   the  Canadian Pacific Railway engines on  the Nicola branch get their coal from  the tunnel output.    A car is now being loaded  for shipment to Vancouver.     Counting  the  different  seams  known to exist on this property,there  is fully 18 feet thickness of coal accessible by tunnel.    The work so far  has been chiefly exploratory and preparatory ; but as soon as proper shipping facilities are afforded the company expects to have an output equal  to the demand.

Borden   has   promulgated   a  Conservative  platform,    Avhich    is  in  every Avay admirable.     There are sixteen clauses in the platform, and some  'of them are directed to the correction  of evils   and  abuses  that exist under  the Liberal administration.   There are  others  which    are    of   a  progressive-  character, and which if put into operation, would tend towards a better distribution of wealth among all  classes.  Under  the  former  head, says the Ottawa  Citizen,   conies the proposal  to  prohibit   e-ontributions  to    campaign  funds by corporations, contractors and  promoters, and the providing of more  effective measures to  punish election  frauds.     Mr. Borden   prewed his   sincerity   in   this connection during the  campaign   of  1904, Avhen he issued   a  manifesto directing that ue> campaign  contributions were to be recei\'ed from  any source,   the  acceptance of which  .eontribntievn Avonld imply the. expectation of a quid pro quo.    The. issue of  that   manifesto at a time   Avhen   the  Conservative   party   Avas   notably   in  need of the sinews of Avar secured for  Mr. Borden the high approval   of  all  right thinking people, though it'prob-  ably lost the party many  large   contributions.    It is appropriate that his  action should be recalled at the present time as an evidence of the sincerity of the   leader.

Among the visitors to the Labor  Day celebration Avas Robt. Stevenson  who has seen many gatherings of the  kind in this A'alley, although on a  much smaller scale, and from reminiscences of other old-timers he was  generally himself a prominent figure  owning and riding horses in some  memorable eA-ents. While he still enjoys the sport and is an ajmreciative  on-looker, he is iioaa* content to let  others take the leading part.  The very apparent lessening in the  amount of drunkenness among the Si-  Avashes present at the Labor Day celebration Avas noted by quite a fcAV.  Various causes contributed to this desirable end. Among them may be  mentioned improved police protection,  summary dealing with sundry offences  last year, Avith also the better influence of a sober tribal chief and the  absence of outside Indians. The aftermath of last year's games gave one  fellow four months in Kamloops for  supplying booze, and several drunken  Indians Avere made to contribute to  the public treasury for their expensive  tastes. This year the sports went off  without a single arrest.  The bounteous rains of the past few  Aveeks have beim helping out in grand  shape on the water cjuestion, and the  sun of sweet content lias re-risen in  the eyes e>f the management. For  si'veral weeks past the creek has been  doing all the work, ne>t a drop e>f  Avater being drawn from Twenty mile  lake which in its turn is tilling up satis-  factoriIys anel increasing the reserve.  For the greater part of last Aveek  symething over -100 miners' inches  Avere wasting over the darn, and mi-  less a lcngthene'd spell of dry Aveather  again sets in, the creek should be good  for it lot' the autumn before it becomes necessary to again fall back on  the lake.  Monday being Labor Day, the public school here will hot re-open until  Tuesday Sept. 3rd.  Summer of 1907 is knocked cold.  The Rev. Mv.

LITERARY ALLUSION.  A.   Keeenl    e-is������   Which    Indirectly    i'oar*  Upon llic (JuoMId-i of Kdu eat J on ami  the Study of literature.  As illustrating the matter of allu-  . siveness in literature, wc ,A*enture to  quote a letter, just received from one  who siyns hiinseli' "One of. Campbell's HiV-ioug friends." Indirectly it  bears upon the .epiestion of education  and the study.and uses of literature.  The writer says:  "As a lifelong personal friend of  the late Professor Campbell, I. wish  to express my grateful thanks for  the true and beautiful appreciation  in this morning's Globe. In senii-  m'ent anil feeling and form-it is perfect. The delicacy of touch makes  me certain that the fault is mine  when I pa use over one phrase in the  last sentence. The sentence is a gem,  but 1 feel I miss the beauty of the  phrase 'his own gray spirit." I have  read it over and over again, and  each time, feel more sure that it is  no misprint, but that it has a background , of literary allusion' .with  which 1 ought to be familiar. The  phrase has haunted me all forenoon,  and 1 cannot rest until I fix it."  The phrase referred to is, in fact,  an almost unconscious glint from' a  line in Tennyson's1 " l: lyases." In  using it the writer did not have the  poem in minel, nor was there- at the.  first any sense of similarity between  the brave old Creek hero and this  eager Canadian scholar. Its us:; illustrates one of those mysterious  workings of the mind in its own  secret laboratory, \vh:-iv. without  . the conscious effort or direction of  tho will, it draws up out of some  forgotten cranny some form of expression that is (itteil by instinct to  some heart emotion or some; unforni-  o ed thought. Psychologists may have  ' an explanation of these mental process; the most the rest of us can cle>  is to appreciate the fact and to pro-  vidc  faA-orable  conditions. George  Paxton   Young    used   to   talk   to   his  students    about     "old    sense    movements     returning     on     their ���������"'former  tracks."'   That may  oiler  a  clue-.  The>  unrememboreci    line   from   " 1'lysses,"  under   the    stimulus    of  the   emotion  awakened    by  thought    about   .John  Campbell,  found  its  way   back along  the  track   it   made  years   ago,    and,  without   conscious     choice,   the    two  men  so. widely separated  were bound  together   in.   one   association.     That,  too, is a matter for the philosophers.  IJut     second     thought    over   these  things,   and  over  the  discussion    tho  phrase     proA'oked,     brings  out     into  greater  distinctness tho  aptness,  unseen   before,   not   only   of   the   phrase  itself,   but   of   the   whole   passage   to  which   it   belongs.      The   passage      is  familiar,   but,   as  one;   literary   friend  of     the   dead     professor    said,   it   is  Avorth     ejuoting.     anel   it    may   send  some   readers   of  The   Globe   back  to  their   Kng-Iish     classics   for  the  summer reading they so much  desire:  "I am a part of all that I have met;  Yet ������������������!! experience Is an arch  whevethro*  Uleanis that tintravcled world,  whose mar  ���������rin   fsides  Kor i'vci* and for e������.ver when I move.

Biblical literature, classical  literature, modern literature, all  literature that is true and enduring,  has in it the matchless elements o!  intellectual and spiritual culture. II  would mark the turning back ol  civilization, alike for the individual  and for the State, were education to  lay aside that old-timo habit ol  steeping' the young life, its thought  aud imagination and memory, in the  m'ideliled   wells   of   literature.
