No. 1  ol" the Katalla Herald, and also several  interesting local vieAVS, among Avhich  wns the ill-fated crossing Avhere the  fight took place on July 3rd. It was a  level cuossing on a trestle, the tracks,  of the Katalla Co. being laid and the  Brunei1 trestle being shown Avith piles  and caps but no stringers, cross ties  nor tracks. One advantage in the  situation is that the crossing is over  some arm of Avater, making it convenient to give contestants an involuntary bath and thus cool them off.  Unlike a certain divine who in writing his folloAvers,  told thein that he  would "nothing extenuate nor aught  set dpAvn in malice," the editor of the  British Columbia Mining Record, in  publishing the letter of remonstrance  of the Hedley Board of Trade, for the  FAUX pas which he made in the June  issue of that publication, has both undeniably sought to extenuate and a  great deal more set down  in  malice.  When his drive at the Similkameen  appeared in the June issue of the Record,  in which it was made to appear  that all the lode gold  produced in the  Similkameen  in 1906 Avas six ounces,  valued at $124, there were some of the  Record   editor's  personal  friends   in  Hedley (and the editor-of the Gazette  was among them) who Avere not prepared  to construe it as the result of  any desire on his part to deal unfairly  by the,district,  even if the Record in  the past has been noted for a painful  dearth of mining intelligence from this  district in comparison Avith Avhat Avas  appearing in other mining magazines  in Canada and the United States. They  noted, that the stab appeared in connection Avith a personal  attack of the  Record editor upon " Windy " Young,  against Avhom he is known to entertain  a  personal1 grudge of  several   years'  standing; ;a'nd  knowing his petulance  and   vindictiveness,   for  Avhich   they  made due allowance; -they Avere disposed to,treat it lightly.    But the general tenor of the article in  the July  number of the Record changed all that  and left little doubt as to the real attitude, of its,editor-tOAvards the Similka-.  ineen.-.' Neither is this the first occasion  upoli which the Siuiilkameeri has come  under his displeasure, for it is not very  long ago that -in his  meddling, strictures upon the Vermillion; Forks Mining .Co, of Princeton, his remarks could  be construed in no other way than in  disparagement, of the coaLiueasures of  Princeton  and   other   mining claims  held by the. Vermillion Forks Mining  Co., and .as for courtesy oi* fairness,  ask Ernest Waterman,   the resident  monager of it-he,company at Princeton.  Avhether   he  received  either   at   the  hands of the.editorof the Record when  he. .wrote that, paper in remonstrance.  , But; to, return: to the .subject upon  which the complaint of the   Hedley  Boardof Trade, against the Record Avas  based, it will he interesting to examine  and .partially analyze a few of the more  remarkable contentions adA-anced, by  the Record editor iu that extraordinary  apology. .The first thing in connection  with the article which will strike the  reader is the injured tone assumed by  the offending editor and the combat-  iveness so liberally mixed in Avith his  penitence. The .Hedley Board of Trade  appear to him very unreasonable creatures  in  thinking that he had done  Camp, Hedley any harm by wreaking  his vengeance upon " Windy " in such  a Avay.as  to convey the idea to the  public that all the lode gold produced  in the Similkameen in  1906 was six  ounces, valued at $124*, and Avhile he  is laboring to impress them with a due  sense   of   that  unreasonableness,    he  turns about like a Aveather-vane and  takes them to task for their tardiness  in proclaiming the injustice done this  camp and the Similkameen generally,  by grouping  the returns of Osoyoos  mining division Avith those of Green-  Avood and  Grand Forks.    In fact,  he  considered  "Windy" his own legitimate prey and he was merely resenting  interference in any way on the part of  the Hedley  Board of Trade Avith his  inalienable  right to grab out handfuls  of " Windy's" sunny locks every time  an opportunity presented itself.    But  the paragraph in Avhich  the Record  editor defends the system of grouping  mining divisions is remarkable for several  extraordinary viewy.    He represents  the Hedley Board of Trade as  wanting to have the returns for Camp  Hedley published sepaiately.    What  authority had he for this mis-statement   ( because mis-statement it undoubtedly is, although he tries to make  believe that the Record is a paragon of  reliability)?   No such request is made  in the letter of the secretary which he.  publishes, and no other communication  Avas sent him by the Board.     It is  WINDING  UP  SEASON'S WORK.  Camsell's   Party   Break Up Camp This  Week���������A Faithful Season's Work.  Continued on Page Four.  After about four months of steady  Avork in Camp Hedley, the party of  the Canadian Geological Survey under  the charge of Charles Camsell, haye  brought their.field Avork in this camp  to an end for this season. '  About ten days ago they were visited by Mr. A. P. Low, the director of  the survey, who, in addition to the  duties of his new post as Deputy Minister of Mines, keeps in close touch  with the parties in the field, .and he  has some thirty of them out this season. It was of course impossible for  him to visit them all personally, as  some of them aie on the farthest outposts of civilization and the time that  Avould be consumed in reaching them  could not be spared. Besides, Mr.  Low's health is not Avhat it used to be,  the serious illness of last Avinter sapping some of the extraordinary vigor  which marked his exploring days; and  notwithstanding the extraordinary recovery Avhich he made, he is not yet  up to his old form.  During the season Mr. Camsell has  had valuable assistance from Messrs.  Allen and Hayes, the former being a  graduate of McGill and the latter an  undergraduate, Avho Avent back to  Montreal a couple of Aveeks ago to resume his Avork for the coming college  year.  The Avork in this camp this season  was carried on with a degree of dilli-  gence that could only be born of enthusiasm and pure love of the Avork.  From 7 o'clock in the morning until  often late in the, evening, they were at  it day after,day,, caring nothing for  the hours put, in, and only on Sundays  and an. occasional wet day could they  be.fourid at their camp. , Early in' the  season triangulation stilt ions were laid,  out and the survey of the camp began  in earnest. The difficult character of  the surface made it impossible for them  to coyer in -detail-all. the ground that  they expected to do, and the amount  done will embrace about tAvelve square  miles or ah area three miles north and  south by foiir miles east and west, with  the mouth of Eighteen-mile creek as  itti. south-west corner.  The thorough manner in Avhich this  area has been done can only be duly  appreciated by a look at the map (1,000,  ft. to the inch) in course .of preparation, on Avhich it is shown that the  whole surface is marked out in 100 foot  contours, and the tramways, glory  holes, shafts, prospect holes &c, all  accurately shown thereon.  In this area the geology has been  carefully worked out; and this has  been a pretty difficult task, OAving to  the numerous periods of eruption each  having a different effect on the sedimentaries, which are the oldest in the  camp.  To determine fully the rock constituents, Mr. Camsell has taken between  70 and 80 rock sections to be made into  thin sections or slides for microscopic  petrographical examination. Most of  these, sections Avere taken in close, relation to the ore bodies. The slides  Avill be made in Germany where that  sort of Avork is done uniformly and  cheaply���������two features that are most  important.  After leaving here Mr. Camsell will  go to Victoria and make a tracing in  the Lands and Works department of  the surveyed claims in the camp, for  plotting on his map, he being unable  to procure these locally. This shows  how far the province of British Columbia is behind that of Ontario, where  not only information of that kind  Avould he supplied to him at once, free  of charge, but a topographical and geological .map as well furnished, for the  Ontario government has its oavii geologists and topographers, Avho have  Avorked. out these points instead of  leaving the Avhole thing to be done by  the various parties of the Canadian  Geological Survey, and thus retarding  their Avork.  In all probability Mr. Camsell will  prepare, two reports of the season's  Avork, one dealing with general features, to be out about the beginning of  next year, and a fuller and more detailed report later on, when he has had  time to make full examination of the  rock sections after they come back  from Germany,  and after he has had  V. V. & E. CONSTRUCTION.  Contractor Welch Tells of His Plans for  Pushing the Work.  (Grand Forks Gazette.)  Pat Welch,- of Stewart '& Welch,  contractors, arrived in town Thursday  night on his return"-'from a trip over  the country Avhich the G.N. wjll' travel se from Keremeos to Princeton.  The contract for grading the 45 miles  betAveen these two places has been let  to J. H. Stewart, and Mr. Welch states  that they will have grading outfits on ,  the ground immediately, probably  starting with 500 men. ��������� Three miles  above Keremeos the road Avill cross  the Siniilkameen river to the south  side then back again by Ashnola creek  folloAving the north bank to just above .  Hedley where it recrosses to the south  side and keeping there till Princeton  is reached.  There will be a considerable portion  of rock work near Hedley and also  near the Princeton end. " I do not  anticipate much difficulty in securing  men," said Mr. Welch, "and we shall ������������������  be able to push Avork during the Avinter even Avith the pick and shovel men.  With good luck Ave should complete-  the grading of the whole section by  next fall and probably reach' Hedley  by May."  FULL OF TRAGEDY.  The Past Week Has Been an Eventful  One at Princeton.  On Thursd.vy last, a half-breed avo-  rnan-named Finlay, who lived near  Bromley's upper ranch nve miles from  Princeton, died very suddenly on the  road to Copper Mountain. The circumstances did not warrant the holding.of an inquest, and Dr. Schon, who  knew, her physical condition and Avho  made an examination after death, was  satisfied that death resulted from a  hemorrhage of the brain, and gave a  certificate for buria 1. Her husband,  who had been committed to the insane  asylum some time ago, died there  about three Aveeks ago. Three children  are left, but as neighbors Avill take  them in and the property is becoming  valuable they Avill be tolerably Avell-  provided for.  Suicide at McAuley Cakp.  On Monday night about midnight,  word came to the government office  that a man named McDonald who lived  at McAuley's camp  to the  south  of  Copper Mountain, had blown his head  off.   The man Avasin Princeton a short  time before.    He had been  drinking  heavily and Avas partially in delirium  tremens, and had seA*eral times talked  of. taking .his. own life.    GoA'ernment  Agent Hunter, after hearing the story-  brought in by the  men Avho had notified him of the  occurrence,   and after  consulting-Avith Dr. Schon Avhom  he  knew to.have been attending the unfortunate man a short time before, requested the doctor to go up and make  an investigation, if he Avas not prepared, to make out a certificate for burial  without it.    Mr. Hunter also arranged  Avith parties to go out and attend   the  burial of the remains.   No lumber Avas  aATailahle  for  nmking  a coffin   there,  and the corpse had to be packed about  6,000 feet up the mountain to gel clear  of staked claims.    In lieu  of a coffin,  he  directed  the. burial   party to Avrap  the remains in canvas and place poles  above and   below it in   thi>.  graA*e,   a  method  that is  frequently employed  in frontier life.  time to complete the mapping of all  the data Avhich he has Avorked out in  the field and Avhich is now contained  in his field notes.  To those of us on the ground who  are interested in these matters and  who have had an opportunity to observe the character of the work done,  the season's operations in this camp  haye been most gratifying. That the  party Avere unable to cover the amount  of ground Avhich they intended was  certainly no fault of theirs, but was  due Avholly to the magnitude of the  task imposed upon them and the absence of such assistance as the Geological Survey might expect to receive.  It is understood that the party will  return next year and Avork out the  balance uncompleted this year.  !

Fulton   and  Prof.  Carpenter, avIio  came in  to   investigate  the matter of irrigation, was regarded  with satisfaction by land-owners with  " whom irrigation  is  the all-important  question:    In fact there are few const ituencies in the province that would  be inore benefitted than   the  Similkameen, by any move on the part of the  provincial government  to inaugurate  a system   of irrigation   which   Avould  reclaim the large acreage of land, now  lying waste for want of means to  provide  it  with  an  adequate supply   of  Avater.     While  the   lmver Okanagan  valley has been fortunate'in having a  large poition of its land, fall  into the'  hands of a corporation like the Southern Okanagan  Land   Co.   which   has  grappled with the question in so effective a manner, there are nevertheless  many small ranche.ts whose means are  not sufficient to permit them to undertake the expenditure  necessary to put  water on their land.     In   the Siniilkameen A-alley too, the Keremeos  Land  Co. have done a great deal and have  under A\Tay   a   great  deal   more, but  there are many others who have broad  acres that could be made to yield large  returns  if   given   the   productiveness  that Avould   result   from   a  thorough  system of irrigation.    To  do  this the  government could obtain money cheaper and could   make arrangements* by.  which they could   get   it   back   from  land-owners   who would  thus   enjoy  the  advantage   of   the   better   terms  "Which the provincial government can  secure in the money markets.     "While  it is  not known just   Avhat   form the  contemplated   legislation  of the  government will take in reference   to  the  matter of irrigation, it is undoubtedly  encouraging   to   note   that   tht'A'   aie  going about it carefully and methodically,  and  Avhen   the  time   comes  to  crystallize into  legislation  the  result  of their researches, they  Avill   be  prepared to furnish parliament with  the  fullest possible! information as to acreage, cost of installing system, revenue  resulting therefrom,  and present legal  status uneler the; "Water Clause.-;  Consolidation Act, Avhich has been  found  in many instances to bo a A-ery  imperfect measure*, and a veritable bottomless pit  in regard to the complications  that may arise from it.

Mining stocks, be  says, have declined very much in the  London market.  The seats were moved on Saturday  last from the old school building to  the neAv premises at the corner of  Kingston and Daly avenues.

B.  L. G. MacHaffie, local manager of  the Bank of B.;N. A. left on Friday  morning for the coast, on his holidays.  He intended, lioweA*.er, to spend the  greater portion'of his time at Winnipeg, Avhich woiild shorten his stay at  the coast.  '  Word comes.from Camp McKinney  .that Hughy' Cameron is removing to  Victoria, and that W. McKay, of Rock  Creek, is taking over the hotel at  McKinney. To former residents of  that camp it seems difficult to imagine  Camp McKinney Avitbout its old standby, Hughy Cameron.  Rev. Mr. Cameron's field* is so large  that he was nimble to hold service in  Hedley on Sunday evening. His field  takes in Okanagan Falls, Fairview,  Lower Similkameen and Keremeos,  and Avlien a trip is made to Hedley  some, of the other points are obliged  to lose a service.     '    ' -  Mrs. G. P.

The stoppage of the tramway  compelled her to remain longer than  she had intended, and  Avhatshe   re-  ' i  gretted most was in not getting back  in time to see her friend Mrs. Stone  before she left for Rossland.

Innes of Keremeos, \vho, Avith her little son, is  spending a few days in Hedley.  Mr H. A. Hincks, of Vancouver  branch arrived a. Aveek ago to take  Mr. Irwin's place in the hank here.  The change is token advantage of to  give Mr, MacHaffie his holidays, Mr.  Irwin taking his place meanwhile,  and on his return will go to his new  post in Vancouver.  Mr. A. H. Kelly, of Nelson, B. C.  returned on Saturday's stage from  Princeton, and that afternoon took a  ride up the tramway to see the Nickel  Plate, which never fails to impress .the  mining man, and Mr. Kelly Avas no  exception to the rule, for he declared  that he Avould have been A'eiy sorry  to haA*e missed -seeing it. He Avent  out on Sunday morning, hut announced his intention of returning shortly.  The gravity tramway was out of  commission for a few days last week  to permit the installation of neAV head  gear at the central station. From  the A'cry first tho old gear at the central gave trouble, and every once in a  while the shaft was snapping in two!  This Avas generally believed to be due  to a defect in tha bearing of the bull.  Avheel which had not been bored out  truly.' The new bearing, it is-hoped,  Avill have no such defect, and being  much stronger and heavier than the  old one, will doubtless permit of handling a larger quantity of ore daily,  Avith a greater degree of safety.

( S.ey.eral,working teams have  been oh hand for local teaming, and  part of their Avork has been that of  drawing fodder to the' barn.  Up-country papers report a very  successful meeting of the Okanagan  Rifle Associatiott' at Armstrong' on  Sept. 2hcl.:and 3rd. Individual prizes  were distributed'*among competitors  ancLS.unimerland,Avon, the team match.  Visiting marksmen Were entertained  at a smoker by the Armstrong riflemen, and a pleasing feature of the occasion was the presentation of a purse  to F..C., Wolfenden, the energetic sec-  re tary of the Association.  Many have been AA*ondering Avhat  effect the running of regular trains to  Keremeos, Avill luwo on the teaming  between here and'Pen'ticton... The Gazette avus. talking'tiki-other day to  Dougald Gillespie who is of the impression that for a. time it will disorganize matters for the teamsters. He  expects, however, that there will still  be sufficient freight forwarded by the  C. P. R. to warrant- the .continuance  of a. certain number'.of teams. Mr.  Gillespie has for many years been  hauling freight out of Penticton and  has numerous friends among business  men whose freight ho has been handling.  A novel match is proposed for  Thanksgiving Day, and if the members of the local ]{ifk> Association and  the Gun Club think well of it, the  alV'air may bo pulled oil", it is to h.-iA-*e  a match between the J{iflu Association  and the Gun Club, using both rifles  and shot guns. Avith eight or ten men  on a side. As a. number belong to  both, it is proposed to distribute these  ambi-gunsterons L'elloAVs over both  sides, allowing the secretaries of each  club to choose from them turn about-,  and toss up for first choice. The result of tho shooting it is proposed to  determine on the basis of percentages.  The match would furnish some aiiius-  ing features, as there is a possibility  that the gun club might beat the 11 fie  men in rifle shooting, and the rille association down the gun club at trap-  shooting.  This is to certify that I have-carefully examined the nurseries and stock  of-the Okanagan Nursery Co.. and find  the following results. The land is specially-adapted for the production of a  good root system, and by careful management this result has been obtained.  The several, blocks of' peaches I  found, to be Avell grown and exceptionally healthy, having a vigorous growth  and excellent foliage. These trees are  iioav of such size that they may be  safely transplanted to the places'  Avhich they are to occupy 'permanently, any time after the leaves fall.  The same remarks apply to*the varieties of pears and plums. I may say  that I have also looked particularly  for any sign of .disease either insect or  fungoid, and failed to find, anything  Avorth making note of.  In conclusion I may say they are  the healthiest lot of trees Avhich it has  been my goocl fortune to look over for  a very long time, and I take great  pleasure in recommending them to  any one AA'ho.'AA-ants local groAvn trees  for planting in this immediate neighborhood.

Apologia recordis. r-'  Continued from First Pago.  merely an  unwarranted  inference on  his part, because the'secretary happened  to add  in  his letter that "every  ounce of lode gold  (of the Osoyoos cli-  vision ) caii be credited to Camp  Hedley,"  but in no case asks that Camp.  Hedley returns be published separately.  To do otherwise with the leturns from  Osoyoos division than that followed in  the present system of grouping would  not meet the. approval of the  Record,  and the reason he gives for Avith-hold-  ing approval   is  that  "when   there is  only one producing mine in that local-  -   ity"  it Avould   in his  opinion "violate  the spirit of the law which while making compulsory the.sending in periodically to the department sworn returns  as to mineral, production etc.,  forbids  the'publication of the information thus,  obtained."   Will the Record therefore  tell us whether  there Avere in the spr  called Similkanieen.

And  who around  the Mines department, pray, authorizes  the Record to state that " if it! (the  Hedley Board of Trade) apply for particulars  it  Avishes made  public,  they  .will not be  supplied by thegovernment?"   This seems a piece of- presumption on the. part of the Record  which demands calling down. .-  The   concluding   paragraph of   the  Record  article is 'devoted' to an overhauling of the Hedley Gazette, and in,  this partienhir portion;  the fit of bad  temper into Avhich the highly irascible  editor had Avorked himself was very,  apparent; but that did not justify the  dirty little personality altogether foreign to the subject, Avhich was dragged  into gratify' his A'indictivenesSi   The  first broadside for the Gazette Avas the  accusation of a mis-statement on our  part in saying that Avhile the Record  had taken one part of the mines-report  to show that Similkameen, Nicola and  Vernon1 had prodned only 6 ounces of  lode gold,  worth $124,  it ignored another Avhich showed  that the Nickel  Plate at Hedley had produced 35,000  tons in 1906.  The Record says it didn't  ignore it,'becausg the information:was  in  type for ��������� the June issue hut Avith  other matter had  been   unavoidably  held over for next month.    Well, next  month's issue was not out until the  last Aveek in August, and the Gazette's  charge of ignoring appeared on August  8th;   but of course  the editor of the  Gazette,  being omniscient,  should be  expected to knoAv aboutamonth ahead  Avhat the Record is going tb publish-;  thanks for the delicate  compliment.  The next is the assertion that the Record  " is too careful of its reputation  for reliability to descend to such  tactics as the Gazette."   Will the Record  be good enough to point out a single  instance in which the Gazette has overstated'or misrepresented the condition  of any. mining  property in the'whole  Similkameen electoral district?    Neither,  of course,  could the Record be  accused  of giying unreliable mining  news of the Similkameen, for it rarely,  if ever,  publishes anything.   But the  crowning offence of which the Gazette  has been guilty, is in saying that Rock  Creek and Camp McKinney are in the  Similkameen electoral district.    Well,  are they not? We undoubtedly thought  so at the time of the last election.    In  that article in  which the mining properties of Similkameen electoral district,  and what they  had produced,  was given,   avc were careful to explain  clearly the difference between the Similkameen   electoral   district  and   the  Similkameen  Valley;    No rogue nor  loose,  use Avas made of geographical  names, and Avhere the electoral district  Avas meant it invariably said so, using  the Avord   "electoral" no less than six  times in the article.   Yet this in the  jaundiced vision of the head-achy, dyspeptic editor of the Record was done  with deliberate intent to deceive.   Deceive  whom?   Was the editor of the  Record deceived thereby?   And if he  survived  the fancied snare surely he  doesn't imagime  that there is anyone  else dull-witted enough to fall into any  trap over it.    Why doesn't the Record  reproduce  the  article Avhich it finds  fault Avith and let its readers judge for  themselves, instead of being asked to  see it through the bilious-colored spectacles of the Record.   Had  this been  done,  its  readers would have had for  once a lucid, reliable picture of mines  and   mining   operations   within   the  bounds of the Similkameen  electoral  And  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is .situated the famous, "Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects.
