V. &*E. station  which ever- since the fall of 1905 was  considered a settled fact for Pinto flat  on the west side of Twenty-mile was  to be changed to- Smelter flat on the  east side. That this should cause a  degree of dissatisfaction bordering almost on consternation was only to be  expected, for people do not easily have  old settled plans swept aside without  a certain amount of ."jar or jolt and  especially so when they had reason to  believe (but fortunately the belief was  erroneous) that it was meiely a continuation of the old policy of pin  pricks on the part of F. A. Ross who  they knew had carried on the correspondence with the G. N. Railway for  the change.  The chief grievance of course on the  part of townspeople was the fear that  the Company, having absolute possession and ownership of Smelter- flat,  would townsite thegiound, and their  nearer proximity to the depot would  give them an advantage over the town  proper as at present located. This  feature was calculated to create uneasiness on the part of property  holders and these were disposed to  use all legitimate means to protect  their* own interests. Finally after  much talk the old executive of the de-  defunct Board of Trade was got together* and they appointed a'committee  to wait on Mr. Beam and learn his  views on the subject.  The committee which waited on Mr.  Beam was made up of W. A.. Maclean,  E. D. Boeing, F. H. French and A.  Megraw. They were met by Mr. Beam  in a friendly, conciliatory spirit. He,  in stating his side of the case was  frank and open. He recounted,bit by  bit his own connection with it from  the time that the matter was first  brought to his notice by. M.K. Rodgers  in the fall of; 1908, and told also the  views of Mr. Merrill and others of his  colleagues, which showed that the  new company preferred to have the  station on Smelter- flat for reasons  which he explained, instead of on  Pinto flat as chosen by Mr. Rodgers,  who had thought that it was better to  have it over there and obviate the  difficulty of making the road to and  from the station a thoroughfare  through the company's works. This  reduced Mr. Ross's role in the matter-  to that of amanuensis.  Then,  as for- townsiting,  Mr. Beam  pointed out that it was never- a part  of  the present Company's policy to  mix up  in side issues- like townsites,  stores,  bunk-house's,  etc.     They had  never done so   heretofore   and   they  didn't purpose to begin now.    Besides,  even if they were disposed to go in for  it now, they would have no ground at  their disposal for such purpose after-  Mr. Rodgers' holding to the south of  the track is taken oil" and the railway  get their yardage allowance of 3000  feet ft 300 ft and the company construct one or two more slimes ponds.  The reasonableness of these views  and  the  live and let live   spirit   exemplified in the assurances given were  most gratifying to the committee and  disarmed  to a great   extent their opposition to the change.  It is true, the present narrow  dangerous road through the company's  works constructed by Mr. Ross, two  years ago, over which the public  would have to travel to reach a station  located on Smelter flat did not help  the town to look favorably on the  change,   but doubtless  that   may he  remedied shortly.  Thus the first occasion upon which  a cl-ish of interests between the town  and the new company has taken place,  has pass- d by without serious conflict  and aiiguis well that henceforth the  white-winged dove of peace will take  up her permanent abode here. >  Men of Many Pursuits View a Mining  Industry in the Making��������� While view  Point May Be Different in Places���������  Same Principles of Economy That  -Make the Successful Manufacturer  are mostly Applicable in Mining as  Well.  Mr.. Kennedy Returns from Arduous Trip  ���������Feasible Tunnel Site Found  On Saturday last a party of 15  New Englanders including three ladies  (for some of the members of the party  brought their wives along) arrived at  the Apex group at the East end of  Camp Hedley. Some of the party  were prominent members of the Colonial Gold Mining Co. and others were  friends of theirs who were en route for*  Seattle to the A. Y.'P.  They left Manchester, N. H. on Saturday, the 21st ult., by the C. P. R.,  and after spending a day at Banff,  reached Sicamous where they were  met by Mr. W. D. McMillan, and proceeded to Penticton on Friday, driving to the Apex on Saturday.  The Gazette, in response to kind invitation from officialsof the company  which was made to extend to friends,  went over to meet them, on Sunday,  accompanied by Mr MacHaffie'and  spent a very pleasant day in the mountains with them.  The  headquarters   of the  Colonial  Gold Mining Co. is Manchester, N. H.  a manufacturing  town of 70,000, situated at Amoskeag Falls on the Merri-  mac River.    When it is known  that  one manufacturing concern in Manchester, the Amoskeag M'fg Co.,  employs 15,500 people,  with an annual  pay-roll of $6,200,000; employs 116,388  horsepower to drive its. works, and  manufactures cotton cloth at the rate  of 50 miles an hour, and that this concern and others is represented on the  directorate of the Colonial Gold Mining Co., it may be readily seen what  it means to have mining property in  B. C. attract the   capital   of  men  of  this kind.   Here in  British Columbia  we have an example of it in the Granby.    There, not 100 miles away,  is  a  property that noted  mining experts,  including the provincial mineralogist  reported adversely on,  believing  that  the values were too low to offer any  hope of profitable returns, but a practical Canadian  manufacturer of rubber boots, Mr. Miner, examined figures  submitted to him which showed   no  profit on a daily output of 250  tons  per day.     He inquired further and ascertained that by trebling the output  a fair profit could be   made,   and   immediately the capital necessary to enlarge was  forthcoming.   To-day   the  output of the Granby is 1(5 times what  it was when Miner decided to enlarge  and he and his associates   are   a   few  millions on velvet as regards any investment   which   they  made  in  the  Granby.  Now the Apex ore values exceed those of the Granby mines several times over, and the property can be  brought to the producing point for a  less outlay in plant.  Concluded on Pago Four.  That a vast improvement in the  grade on the Coquihalla route of- the  V. V. & E. can be obtained by the  greater cost of a tunnel has been amply  demonstrated from the recent exploratory trip of the chief engineer.  At Otter flat where the Otter river-  empties into the Tulameen the latter-  river is flowing from the west and  going towards its source the river-  takes a bend almost due south. Two  tributaries of the Tulameen from the  north are Bear creek and Eagle creek."  From the location given the latter on  Government maps it appeared to-have  its source well to westward, and if  this were found to be so, it might-  penetrate well into the mountains  forning the eastern bank of the Coquihalla. Unfortunately, however, it  was found to go northward and hence  could not figure as a factor in the situation.  The only, alternative then was to  connect by' tunnel straight through  the mountains the comparatively  short distance of 8 miles, from riverbed of the Tulomeen to the river-bed  of the Coquihalla.  The old course of the survey was to  leave the Tulameen at the mouth of  Otter," go up the Otter river to the  west fork ; thence up the west fork of  the Otter to a point near, the headwaters of the Coldwaler which flows  northward into the Fraser basin ; and  from that point at an altitude of 3620  feet above sea. level turn south over  into the Coquihalla basin.  The tunnel from the Tulameen to a  point well down the Coquihalla has an  altitude of 2915 feet above sea level.  Thus by tunnelling this 8 miles there  would be saved 675 feet of altitude and  a little over 30 miles, of difficult building, in distance.  While the building of an eight mile  tunnel may look to be a somewhat  formidable task, yet the saving it  would effect in ten years' operation  may make it a sufficiently attractive  proposition for the railway. In all  probability during the progress of  driving the tunnel, communication  would be established and maintained j  over the mountain by means of switch  back.  II. WIRELESS  SITES 205 LIVES  S. S. Ohio Strikes Rock Near  Ketchikan and Sinks  in 30 Minutes.  WIHELBSS-OPERATOR- CALLS HELP  Steamers Rupert City and Humboldt  Pickup Passengers���������Operator Eccles  Goes Down With Ship While Trying  to Rescue Others.  THE OLD SKELETON  John Oliver's Malodorous Resurrection of  the M. & V. Carcass  Seattle, Aug. 27.���������The steamer Ohio,  which left Seattle for Valdez, Alaska,  on August 21th with 135 passengers,  struck a rock off Steep Points, Alaska,  at 1 o'clock this morning, and sank  with the loss of five'lives.  The dead are the Ohio's,, wireless  operator*, George C. Eccles : Purser, F.  J. Stevens, of Seattle, and three par-  sengers.  The steamers Humboldt, of Seattle,  and Rupert City, of Vancouver, which  were in the neighborhood took off the  Ohio's surviving passengers. The  Rupert City will reach Vancouver late  tomorrow night.  M. J.  Heney,  a well known Alaska  railroad contractor,  was   on  the lost  steamer,  and was not  injured.   Mr. >  Hehey sent this wireless message :  "Stevens and Eccles went down  saving the lives of passengers instead  of looking to their own safety."  News of the disaster was received  by United Wireless from the company's ag-ent at Ketchikan, who is in  communication with the wireless  operators on the Hunboldt and. the  Rupert City.  The wireless operator who lost his  life was George C. Eccles, formerly of  Winnipeg. He was well known in  Vancouver.  The Ohio belonged, to the Alaska  Steamship company, and was valued  at $300,000. She is a total loss. She  was built at Philadelphia as long ago  as 1873. She was 31SS tons gross, and  2072 tons net, and was 848 feet-long.  Her beam was 43 feet, and she drew  24 feet.  The Ohio carried a crew of S2.  ALL THE SAME HOBO  Louis Hill and His Chauffeur Didn't Impress Farmer.  Great Falls, Mon.. Aug 22.���������Louis  W. Hill, president of the Great  Northern Railway, and a son of James  J. Hill, xvlis compelled to spend a night  this past week in a haystack. He  started from Helena to Great Falls in  his automobile. Near Fort Shaw the  machine stuck in a mud hole.  Mr. Hill applied to a settler for a.  bed and supper, but was* told that be  could find a bed in a nearby haystack  and that he could help himself to refreshment at the pump.  When he did not appear here on  time a searching party started toward Helena. Tho found the automobile in the mud hole, and a short  inspection of the nearby neighborhood  revealed Mr. Hill and his chauffeurs  sound asleep in the haystack.  (Greenwood Ledge.)  It appears that the Midway and  Vernon railway is again to be made  an issue in this district in the coming  provincial campaign. John Oliver is  the latest to take the matter up as a  bait to the electors. Geo. R. Naden  used it in the last provincial campaign,  but never mentioned it in the house.  Both Oliver and Naden know that  until the company earn a subsidy it is  impossible for the government to take  action towards the relief of those who  were "skinned" by the contractors,  Some new scheme will have to be devised to gull the electors. Midway  and Vernon is worn out. Mr. Oliver  lacks originality and imagination in  campaign matters. He should borrow  Naden's imagination and reason from  an unknown hypothesis to any conclusion that will please the individual  with whom he is talking.  OPERATOR'S APPEAL AND GOODBYE  NEW -YORK, Aug. 27.���������The United  Wireless company, one of whose operators, G. E. Eccles, of Winnipeg, perished in the sinking of the steamship  Ohio, received an account of the disaster from Operator Booth at Ketchikan late today. Booth says in a dispatch to headquarters of the company  here :  Concluded on Pag-p Four.  In like manner there has been noticed here a disposition in a certain  quarter to resurrect Smith Curtis'  crazy "Smelter flat" issue.  WELLS FOR GOVERNOR  Former B. C.  Politician Likely to Succeed Dunsmuir  Victoria, Aug. 26th���������W. C. Wells of  Nelson will be the next lieutenant  governor of British Columbia, according to authentic advices received here  to-day. Hon. James Dunsmuir, the  present incumbent, asked some two  months ago to be relieved and it is  likely that his resignation will take  effect in about five weeks' time. Mr.  Wells was commissioner of lands and  works in the Dunsmuir and Prior governments from 1901 to 1905.  ACCOMMODATION QUESTION  At the A. Y. P.   Has Been Satisfactorily  Solved���������Rooms Easily Obtained.  Seattle, Aug. 29,���������Through the efforts of the Seattle Chamber of Commerce in providing accommodations  for visitors, this city claims the distinction of being the first place to hold  a World's Fair, without the attendant  crowding and difficulty in obtaining  rooms.  Although several hundred thousand  people will attend the Exposition from  points outside the city, over one  hundred thousand having arrived already, there has never been time when  the room accommodations have not  been ample to take care of the crowd.  For several months before the Fair-  opened its gates the Seattle commercial body conducted an active campaign to induce the citizens of the city  to let rooms. Many have advertised  rooms for rent from motives of pure  city patriotism, induced by this campaign.  The visitor at the- A. Y. P. has his  choice, of all classes of accommodations  to suit his purse from the most reasonable room at fifty cents a night, to the- .  costly apartment. Good rooms maybe secured close to the Exposition for  seuenty-five cents to a dollar and a  half a night. The general air of  hospitality which the oily has assumed towards visitors has attracted much  favorable comment.'

S.~ S.  ���������Ohio, off Ketchikan, will-revive  interest in the necessity of corn-  ��������� pell ing' all pnssengev-ca.rrying  ships to equip with wireless.  "The. knowledge communicated  to the passengers that two other  ships were hastening to their  relief mast have been very assuring to them when being  transferred to the small boats.  Had the Ohio which was equipped with the United Wireless  apparatus, not been so provided  it is doubtful whether'many of  the small boats into which the  205 passengers were transferred  would have been saved. Strange  to say, in the absence of legislation compelling it, most of the  passenger boats are installing  the service of their own volition,  and in many cases it is being-  done for business reasons in trio  convenience and profit that  ship-owners experience in being-  able at all times to maintain  communication between the  ship and its head-quarters.  Canada has passed the law, but  it is not yet on the statutes of  the United States owing to the  fact that the Senate would not  carry out the wishes of the  House of Eepreso)itati vcs.  Some may ask then, tha't if  ship-owners are equipping of:  their own accord, where is the  necessity of passing a, law coin-  polling them to do so? As well  might they ask why it is necessary to legislate to compel���������the  use of iire escapes on public  buildings, for there were public-  spirited men who provided such  before any Jaw was passed.  It is only a few weeks ago  that the daily papers contained  the views of a ship owner who  was railing against what he  termed the Avireless fad of opposition owners, finally justifying his opposition to it on the  ground that it was not yet out  of the experimental stage and  was for that reason unreliable.  Well, if the saving of life and  property that has already resulted from its use is merely  experiment then it is the kind  Aug 22  23  2-1  25  ���������20  ��������� 27  28  times refuse ..to patronize boats  that are not provided with wireless and by that means make  their influence felt without the  assistance of the law ; but often  on the other hand'the. public  may have no choice and be  forced to take unnecessary risk;  and not until a rigid law is enacted and enforced will proper  protection be obtained.  'Canada has set 'a noble example in the law passed at  Ottawa last session, but often  Canadians, have to use the  shipping of other nations less  advanced than their .'own'and  tin til a comp ulsory wireless hi w  is made universal the full  .measure of protection cannot  be secured.  The'action of the Canadian  government, however, in the  -matter of Canadian licenses for  wireless stations is,abominable.  They refused licenses to the  United Wireless Telegraph Co.  in several cases, for commercial  work,"which they would not do  themselves in the government  stations that were costing them  .$8000 per year to maintain,-and  when the United .Wireless Co.  offered to relieve them of -that  animal expense by taking, over  the stations and. doing all government work free of .. charge,  they refused this offer as well.

Visiting  brethren,are cordially invited to attend.  ARTHUR CLARE,  W. M.  H. D,  BARNES,  Secretary  L. C. Barnes, of Penticton, was in  town last week.  Miss Keefe, who was visiting her  sister, Mrs. Rotherham, returned to  Nelson oh Thursday.  There was heavy rain up the- river  at Camp 5 last week, when Hedley  had the merest sprinkle.  ���������S. Setou  Thompson,   brother of the.  author  of those  entertaining  animal  stories, was-in town last week. ;  Crossing Twenty-mile over the long  high V. V. &.E. trestle will now divide interest with walking the flume.  The.rails are now at tho third crossing of the Similkaineen, having reached there on Monday evening of this  week. .  The Sports Committee for Labor-  Day say that they will shoot any dog  which is found on 'or about the race  track.  Vernon police are looking for a man  who is suspected of burning the  Okanagan hotel in which fire II persons lost their lives.  C.J.Wilson, of Greenwood, is taking up his abode in Vernon to take  charge - of the business of P. Burns <fc  Co. inthat place.  The ladies' saddle horse race to be  Held at Hedley on Labor Day for a  handsome cup has created much interest throughout the district. Several  ladies in Keremeos have already announced their intention to compete.  The Gazette has had several requests  to warn the people against allowing  their dogs on'the grounds during the  horse-racing, on either day of the  Labor Day Sports next week. We  appreciate these reminders and arc-  glad to accede to the requests by  pointing out the danger to life and'  limb which exists where dogs are allowed to run at large. Two years ago  in one of tho races a horse in one of  the heats came in contact-with a dog  that strayed on to the track and fell  throwing his rider who was lucky to  escape breaking his neck, and - at  Princeton a like occurrence took place  at races there. Hedley has the reputation of possessing the biggest aggregation of curs to be found in the  district, some of them owned and  others having no owners.

He took Mr.  Garlneau with him as far as Penticton.  The Misses Kirby, "of Keremeos,  accompanied by Messrs. Hogcland  and Hurtel, of the engineering staff,  paid Hedley a visit on Sunday, coming  up by the work train.  Mr. Kissner, district traffic agent of  the Great Northern, resident at Grand  r  Forks, was in Hedley last week, looking into sundry local matters effecting  the interest-- of the railway in this  locality.  The Hotel Siinilkarneen was taken  over on Tuesday by Frank Dallamoru  who has been granted a lease by the  ownons. The house is one of the very  best in the district, and with up-to-  management should attain again the  popularity which it once enjoyed*  Mr. Austin-Y. Hoy, of Spokane,  northwestern representative of the  Sullivan Machinery Co., arrived in  Hedley on Monday in the interests of  his Oo. On Tuesday he paid a visit to  the Nickel Plate to ascertain the  wants of mine supt. G. P. Jones and  from there he went over to the Apex  to see manager Robbins.-  Messrs. Reinecke and Wooky of the  Canadian Geological Survey who have  been doing topographical work on the  Tulameen were in Hedley Thursday  night on their way east, having completed the task allotted them for the  season. Mr. Reinecke goes to Ottawa  and Mr. Wooky to Toronto.  C.C.. Stevens, government supervisor of telephones, _ was in Hedley  last week, on a trip through the Similkameen looking after telephone interests. It is reported that he signified his intention of giving Princeton  a local exchange. Hedley is the only  place south of Ivelowna and Sunmier-  land that has had'a, local'exohangeand  it has been in use here for three years.  Miss Vance, teacher, who has come  out from Nova Scotia on a visit to her  brother J. Vance, who is in charge at  the oro'-bins, is spending a few' days in  town. ''The trustees at Olalla have en-  races should see "that those  dogs with them be sent home to tie  them up'; and curs having no'owners  to mourn their loss should receive  summary treatment. People who at*  tend the races do not go there to witness serious accidents and it is up to  constables and those having the sports  in charge to take prompt measures to  stamp out the dog nuisance.  Mr. Hoy,   of the'SuIlivan Machinery  Co., was  agreeably surprised .to learn  that Hedley  had golf links  which.he  inspected  and  gave   local' devotees of  the   game    the    benefit   of   valuable  pointers    obtained    from    11    years'  practice and  tho opportunity of playing   on   some   of    the    leading   golf  grounds   of   Che United- States and  Scotland.    Butte,  Spokane and Victoria are  about the only  places in the  west where he has  an opportunity to  humor the golf fancy aud he- will now  add Hedley  to the list.    He  was delighted   with   our   grounds   and   tho  opportunities    which    they   offer    of  being made about as good as could he  found  anywhere,   and  his criticisms  of wherein  we have   failed  to   avail  ourselves of the opportunities at hand  were accepted in the friendlj' spirit in  which they were given.   He thinks we  have made  ourvholes far too easy and  with  too much sa,meness.   He would  have us  circumvent  the round  butte  to  the  west  of  the  Hat and  use the  broad area  beyond for some real long  drive holes,  and he is quite right iu  holding   that   tho   interest may   be  heightened by increasing the difficulty  of the play.    His visits to Hodley will  always   be    welcomed   by   the   local  golfers.

Bruce of the Saturday Sunset was  expected in Hedley last week but  failed to show up although it was reported that be had come as far as  Princeton. If Bruce wants to obtain  a proper ide.-i, of industrial matters in  Similkaineen he should come to the  hub, which is Hedley, the pay-roll  town of the district.  There seems to h<.i considerable misunderstanding roparding the game  laws as applied to grouse and deer and  the misunderstanding is heightened  by the vague stitled wording o2 orders  in council relating thereto. Some  local papers use publishing what is  purported to be the game laws to date  and what they have is merely a repetition of the sheet sent out in 1905.  Stripped of its verbiage and redundancy the qrder-in-coruicil passed on  July 29th, 1909, would seem to mean  that grouse shooting this year is not  legal in Yale until October loth; deer-  shooting'until Sept 1st, and mountain  sheep not at all until end of August,  1011. Why so many of these changes  are made does not appear very clear  and their frequency is confusing.

But not to digress too seriously   we  must   return   to   the   New  England  party, piloted   by  Elmer D.  Goodwin  and Henry 0.   Clark   of Manchester,  the treasurer   and   vice-president   respectively, of the Colonial  Gold  Mining Co., who were the  only  members  of the party that had formerly been  on the ground and inspected local conditions before taking hold;   but   even  without that former visit  they could  have got along   all   right   when  Mi-.  McMillan was on hand to guide   their  steps aright.    On the Apex property  they were taken iu hand by Mr. li. R.  'Bobbins,   M. E.,   the   managing    engineer in  charge   of   the work,   who  spared no pains to add to   their   comfort and afforded   every  opportunity  to see all that  was seen,   while   Mrs.  Robbins took the ladies in tow and  saw that they had a good time.  A round of the various claims vof the  group was made, the tunnels, shafts,  drifts and open cuts examined and the  known trend of the .ore bodies explained while some members of the  party took samples. The negotiation  of those ravines and switch-back trails  .' made strenuous work' of it, but the  party were game and the ladies no less  than the men. In fact they but-did  some of the men in hill-climbing.  The unique experience of resting in  camp after the tramp on a warm  August day, iri" sight of several patches  of snow that still hung in the north-  lying ravines evidently appealed to an  easterner, and one of the snow drifts  was reached by some of the higher  climbers, who indulged in a little snow  balling match.  '.On.. Monday they left again for  Penticton on their way to Vancouver,  Seattle and Portland.  The names of all the party were, not  obtained, but among them in addition  to the gentlemen already enumerated.  were Geo. H.Bixby, Haverhill, Mass.,  T. J. Chesley, Dover, N. H.,.0. F.  Rnsling, Manchester*, N. H., Louis  Goodwin, Manchester, Mr. Robbins,  "sr; of the Anioskeag Mfg. Co., "Frank  P. Quinby, Concord, Mass.  It-is understood that the party were  very much pleased with what they  saw of the property, and the decision  to install machinery at once and put  the local force to work on getting additional accommodation ready for the  winter is evidently one of the direct  results of a conference at the mine.
