Vernon, B. C.  When cattle ranching, which employed but a fewr hands, was the only  paying industry in the Similkameen,  and the worked-out placer diggings  had been abandoned, it was a very  sparse population which this district  coidd maintain, because of the lack of  transportation and the isolated position of the valley. It is true it hud a  perfect climate and fertile lands upon  which grew the native grasses that  fattened the herds which were driven  out over the mountain passes to market ; but agriculture on a paying basis  under such conditions was wholly out  of the question, and for decade after  decade little was grown, whether in  grain,vegetables or fruits, beyond what  was required to supply thelocal wants  of those engaged in cattle, ranching.  ' Mineral Wealth Proved Salvation.  s~Now we have a railway grade at our  door, and the mineral wealth in the  hills surrounding Hedley was the one  thing which above all others demonstrated to railway capital that there  was here something for which to build,  for had it not been for the work done  on the Nickel Plate and the inducements held out to railway companies,  they would never' have thought of  building in here. ' Indeed the president  of tht* Great Northern has said so.  Otfice, Greenhouses and Seedliouse:  3010 Westminster Road,  YAN60UVER,   ���������   B. 6.

As early as 1877 the late Dr. Dawson,  in his general report on the geology of  th^e Similkameen, referred in most favorable terms to the geological conditions prevailing here, long-before any  prospector had set a stake. Subsequent  events demonstrate the correctness of  his views, and closer geological study  than Dr. Dawson was able to give in  his hurried trip through new territory  has since shown that in ages gone by  nature prepared here the ideal conditions for deposition of mineral wealth,  and also did some fine topographical  engineering to afford means for winning the ores.  Conditions spoken of by Dr. Dawson  were readily recognized ten years ago  by M;,K. Rodgers when he arrived on  the ground and bonded the Nickel  Plate group. Tliis marked the beginning of a nesv era for the Similkameen,  and with the work of development and  the subsequent extraction of values,  Hedley became the main centre of population for the district���������the pay office,  the entrepot, the town of the full  dinner-pail.  Extent and Value of  Hedley's Mineral  Field.  While preliminary reports published  in. government blue books by Mr..  Charles Camsell, who was in charge of  the party from the geological survey  which spent two years studying the  geology and ore deposits of the camp,  has made some reference to the extent  of mineralization, it is well known  that Mr. Camsell has modified his first  impressions on that subject and concurs in the view of a much wider area  of pay values than that which his  work at first covered.  The area, can he roundly stated to  extend at least eight miles north of  Hedley, i miles south, 7 or 8 utiles east  and 5 miles west. -        '  Mr. Camsell refers to the camp as  the greatest producer of gold alone of  any camp in British Columbia.  Mr. M. K. Rodgers has spout many  years and travelled many thousand  miles up and down the continent looking for mines, examining and sampling  everything offered him, .and has frankly volunteered the statement that "nowhere   between   Alaska  and   Mexico  does he know of any fifteen miles of  undeveloped territory that will sample  equal to the fifteen miles of which the  Nickel Plate is the centre."   This is  indeed a very strong testimonial from  Mr. Rodgeis and carries a wealth of  meaning to those <whn have money-Co  invest, whether in mineral lands, neal  estate or business ventures. Assuming  this to be. true (and of its truth there  is no reasonable ground for doubt) the  possibilities for Hedley are enormous;  for with so wide extent of pay ground  with vast ore  bodies,   the   values  of  which range from low grade  to  medium and (in some few spots where special  agencies    for   concentration    of  values have been at   work)   to  high  grade, there is only one outcome to be  expected and that is the existence here  at an early date of a   busy, prosperous  mining town of several thousand  inhabitants.  '' What Hedley Has To Offer.  Not always has nature been so kind  as to locate her treasure vaults where  the conditions, for living are so pleasant.   Often rich mining regions have  brought   together    large   population  where the climate is unbearable and  natural conditions for sanitation such  that the town has scarcely started until the inevitable harvest of a perilous  death rate  is  being reaped.     But in  Hedley it is a well-known fact that  even in the absence of the  commonest  precautions in the way of sanitation  there is no town in the district has so  clean a health  bill;   for while every  other place shows the existence  more  or less of typhoid,  Hedley has been;  absolutely free from this scourge.   The  reason for this is obvious.    The town  is built on   an  immense gravel bed believed by geologists  to  be  of   many  hundred feet in thickness with a large  swift-flowing river at her-door and a  steady easy slope of the townsite towards the river of about 5 %,  making  the future question of sewage disposal  the simplest possible, by means of sewer and septic tanks.    In the water supply theie are no death-breeding wells  but a system of waterworks providing  pure' running water   from   mountain  streams.  While these conditions mean so  much for the health of the town they  also may mean much for its industrial  advancement. The task of winning  values from the immense ore deposits  in the vicinity precludes the idea of  depending upon the present tramway  system of ore haulage, and the near  future will in all probability see the  inauguration of a comprehensive plan  for tunnelling the mountain, and thus  permit of handling large quantities of  ore at minimum cost. To this end the  Similkameen river will be harnessed so  as to provide, ample power for operating the various properties in the camp,  and when this is accomplished, Hedley  will have come to her own.  What Has Already Been Accomplished.  When Mr. Rodgers took hold of the  Nickel Plate, less than ten years ago,  not $50 worth of work had been done  on it. There were no roads for the  transportation of supplies to the mine,  and these had to be built. The colossal  task of overcoming these difficulties  had to ho tackled by the one concern  which had undertaken to make this a  producing camp, but the sequel has  shown that the mineral wealth exist-  ant here, justified it all. Whpn people  who are disposed to he exacting ask  why the opening.up of the camp has  not been more general, and why other  properties are not developed to the  same extent as the Nickel Plate, they  should also in fairness admit that it is  a wonder that so .much has been done  in the face of such disadvantage as the  remoteness from railways.  ���������v Two Millions in Bullion Taken Out.  While no definite figures -have been  given out as to the total bullion production from this camp, sufficient  data, directly and indirectly, is obtainable to 'warrant the statement that by  the end of 190S cwo million dollars in  gold will be the output, and there is  .greater probability of the real amount  exceeding that sum than in falling^  short of it. What the district has been  living on may .he learned from the fact  that the outlay in wages and other  things necessary to produce this a-  nionnt of bullion has provided-sustenance not only to the people of Hedley  but the whole valley.  This being thu record of one mine, a  faint idea, is obtained of what the town  is to be when there are half a dozen  or   more.

SERIOUS ACCIDENT.  Princeton Team Returning From  Labor  Day Sports Runs   Away on  Crooked   Hill  As we go to press a messenger has  reached Hedley to summon Dr. Wbil-  lans for a runaway accident which  happened Wednesday forenoon on the  crooked -hill between Hedley and  Bromley's. The team returning from  the Hedley sports, carrying a part of  the Princeton baseball team and some  other residents of Princeton, became  uncontrollable and were unable to  make the turn on this hill. The rig  upset throwing ;ai out. Most of the  occupants were more or less injured  but no names of the injured were  learned except that Robt. Stevenson  had received a severe shock and was  still unconscious when the messenger  left.  The word was brought by Ellwood  Bromley who was at his uncle's.  Later particulars were learned when  a rig brought in Robt. Stevenson.  His injuries were dislocation of the  the left shoulder, a cut in the forehead  and bruises about the body. . -  There were in all eleven persons in  the accident and few escaped injuries.  J. R. Campbell had a bad gash in his  leg below the knee and it was feared-  that there were injuries to the bone  as well.  Not only did the rig containing the  load of nine come to grief hut they'ran  down a cart in which were -Hughic  Campbell and Angus Lament, breaking their cart to pieces and throwing  them under the horses' feet. How  these two escaped death was a marvel.  The large rig upset on a pile; of rocks  by the roadside, but fortunately the  double-tree parted from the tongue  and let the horses loose or those under  the rig would have been ground, to  pieces.  Fortunately also there was a road  camp close by where men are making  a new grade to cut ont this dangerous  portion. The men of the road camp  were therefore able to render assistance to the injured.  Thus three of the eleven were old-  timers, Stevenson, Campbell and La-  mont. Campbell came down in the  rig which brought Stevenson back,  saying that he "had stayed.with Boh  for 47 years and ho mustn't leave him  now."  The mishap has caused deepest regret in Hedley; but it is hoped that all  may get around all right.  Robt. Stevenson is seventy years old  and this will make it go harder with  him. Hughie Campbell's clothing was  cut with the horses' hoofs, and although bruised with the fall he is as  lively as ever.  Robt. Stevenson is at the Hotel Sim-t  ilkameen and the Free Masons of  Hedley are seeing that he has every  attention.  No teatshei- has yet been secured for  the school and the date of re-opening  is still indefinite.  One of the most successful Labor  Day^ celebrations that Hedley has seen  took place on Monday and Tuesday,  and never before was the. ability of the  town to accommodate -visitois taxed  to its limit as on Ibis occasion. P.en-  ticton, Okanagan Falls, Fairview, Olalla, Keremeos, Princeton aud as far  away as Otter valley were represented.  ROCK DMLLIXG CONTEST.  The sports opened on Monday morning with the rock drilling contest.  .This was held this year in a. draw leading to Pinto's bench, which was a very  great improvement on the places selected in former years, the amphitheatre shape of the hills enabling more  tosee.it. The purse of $200, divided  into two prizes of $150 and $50, was a-  tempting prize. Three'tei-ms entered  the contest; these were: ������T. Griffin  and W. Trimble ; Geo.. Boweunan and  Pat Connelly, and J. ,Carlson and  Wadded. The above also was the order iu which they finished. Griffin  and partner drilled 30 5-10 inches, Bowerman and partner 2115-16 and Carlson  and partner 231-2 inches. Both the  last two teams were unfortunate  enough to have broken steel in their  holes or they would have made a  better showing.  THE BASEBALL.  For this contest also there were  three teams���������nominally, Princeton,  Nighthawk and Hedley, although the  personnel of the teams' seemed to despise local lines of cleavage. As an attempt to decide supremacy in baseball  among neighboring towns the game  had "no significance; but as an object  lesson to show people up in "this neck  of the woods," a little of how league  ball is played, it was at all events quite  convenient. ���������'���������������������������-.  The drawing for order of phiy resulted in Hedley and Princeton first trying  conclusions.    So far as batteries were  concerned   both   teams   had   strange  thunder, but Hedley's strange thunder  was better supported locally and hence  their success.' Tommy and Billy Daly,  of Keremeos,   played with Princeton. ,  While the former figured conspicuously in the error column in one  innings  he redeemed himself later on by one  brilliant double play  and  by batting :"  out a couple of clouts.    In  fact,  with  the exception  of one vigorous biff to  centre by Tom Hughes, Tonnuy Daly  was about the only one on the Princeton side to hit safely for a base.    Billy  Daly handled himself well on third too.  The Princeton pitcher, Charleston, was.  not   remarkable   for   control   in  -the  earlier  innings,  but later on showed  himself  to be a genuine artist in liis  line.    In the pitcher's battle  the  honors were with Kilroy who twirled for  Hedley and struck out IS to Charleston's 15.    The score by innings was :  Hedley    -30 1 0 0 1 Oflx-5  *" Princeton���������O'O 0 0 0 0 0 0 0���������0  The next morning Hedley had to  play off with Nighthawk which was  fortunate enough to draw the by. The  Nighthawk team was expected to put  up a stiff game and they had retained  the services of Charleston, the.Princeton pitcher, as substitute pitcher but  did not use him.N Tommy Daly played  with Nighthawk and was their surest  bat. The game was very much a repetition of the former match only a  little more so. Hedley put on two runs  in the first inning by way of a nest  egg, which was added to from time to  time until a total of 7 was got together,  and Nighthawk was treated to a shutout;- Kilroy struck out IS and O'Day,  the Nighthawk pitcher, only 7, showing that he was not as effective as  Charleston had been the day before,  and but for the tolerably efficient sup-  Continned on Page Three.

Something   of   Its Work   and Aims in  Forest Preservation.  A Boundary  reader in' commending the Gazette's reference  to the Greenwood Times' attack  on Martin Burrell expresses his  satisfaction at the  good  sense  shown by Mr. Burrell  in  refusing to take any notice  of the  insinuations and misrepresentations made against him.     This  dignified repression on Mr. Bur-  rell's   part,   he   says,    is   only  what Mr. Bun-ell's many friends  expected of him.   The Gazette  in  pointing  out a few  of the  lamest feature's  iu   connection  ���������with the Ross-Times boomerang  did no more than it would be  prepared to do  for anyone else  who had been similarly misrepresented.   The Times' insinuation that Mr. Burrell had violated   the   Civil   Service   Act in  speaking at the Nelson convention,  was perhaps   the  silliest  part of the whole thing, for Mr.  Burrell was not in  any way a  civil servant and  had  nothing  to do with the Civil Service Act.  When he went over to Nelson  In laying down the programme of  its principles, the Canadian ^Forestry  Association kept in view the following  considerations :���������  To iirou.se  public interest to the deteriorating   effects  of   the   wholesale  destruction.of our forests; to consider  and  recommend  the   exploration,   as  fiir iis  possible,  of the public domain,  and its division into agricultural, timber and mineral hinds, with a view of  devoting the  public hinds to the purposes for which they are  best fitted;  to   encourage   reforestation   and   the  planting of trees on  the prairies, in  cities, towns and villages and throughout the country; to collect and disseminate, for the benefit of the public,  re-  ports'and information  bearing on the  forestry problem in general.  . The Forestry Association,! although  it is   consolidating  the   influence   of  those favoring bettor, forest management, is not the pioneer in this movement.     Such  a movement has   been  supported  and advocated  for   many  years by earnest and far-seeing citizens  of the Dominion, most of whom are  now identified with the Association.  By writings, by addresses, by petitions  to  the government,   they   sought  to  bring the matter to  the attention of  the public, but the time was not ripe,  and the  public   indifference   did  not  readily yield.    "The forests of Canada  are inexhaustible," was the stock argument; "Forestry is a fad,"  was the  general opinion.    And if any interest  was aroused  it was quickly lulled to  sleep by the absence of that pressure  of  necessity which is the greatest incentive,  to   action.  The project for the formation of an  association to reform such a stiite of  affairs was initiated in February, 1900,  by Mr. E. Stewart, Dominion Superintendent of Forestry, who called a  meeting of a number of gentlemen  interested in the subject.  The year 1906 was made most notable by a great Dominion Forestry Convention in Ottawa, called by the Prime  Minister, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who personally presided over its deliberations.  There were in attendance His Excellency Earl Grey,, and a very large  number of the most influential citizens  of Canada,  The proceedings of all the annual  meetings have been reported in full  and published. Besides, the Association publishes a quarterly magazine,  the Canadian Forestry Journal, to  which the leading writers on the subjects with which it deals, contribute.

Stevens and wife, of Keremeos, took in the da.uee on Monday night  and were guests of Miss Lowndes.  Andy-Jensen came down from his  claims near the Hope summit bringing  samples of ore that go $200 per ton.  II. P. Nelson, who formerly drove  Welby's stage, is now in Dawson and  will try the north country for a while.  W. A. Maclean has taken" the contract of three miles of. railway grade  in the vicinity of A. Nissen's pre-emption and will begin work shortly. ���������  The steam shovel started in this  week on its last cut, which will be completed in abovit four weeks. This is  from Bryant's house to ..Bradshaw's.  L. A. Mauley came in on Tuesday,  and met'his partner, P. Swanson,-who  was down from Princeton. Mr. Man-  ley has been residing in Alberta for:  some months.  It is said that Madden Bros, are likely to put in a foot bridge across the  Similkameen for their own convenience during the continuance of their  contract.  Mr. C. P. Law, of Vancouver, accompanied Mr. Godfrey to Hedley  last week. While here he paid a visit  to the Pollock, and marked the business improvement in Hedley.  Mrs.- Thomas Rabbitt who was in  town for Labor Day, received a message yesterday from her husband that  their house had been burned, but that  children were safe.  ���������-Mrs. Allison received word last-  week that her son, Jack Allison, had  been killed in a mine accident at the  coast. Few particulars have been  learned concerning it.  Rev. J. Thurburn Conn left yesterday morning for Winnipeg on what  he has been pleased to term a holiday,  and the Gazette hopes that in the.  years to come it may always appear  to be so, for Mr. Conn goes to bring  back a, bride. >  The. Gazette has two.mo"nster apples  grown in the. orchard of W. J. Manery  of the lower Similkameen. The largest  is 14 .inches in circumference arid  weighs 17 ozs. They are claimed to be  wealthies but may be wrongly named,  for wealthies are not likely to grow so  large:  H. W. Yates returned from the  coast on Friday evening last. Mr.  Yates walked back over the Hope trail  doing the distance, of 72 miles between  Hope and Princeton in two days, and  carrying a pack of about 30 or 40 lbs.  Mr. Yates made a.brief stay at Summit camp on his way out and was  pleased with the appearance of property there.  Mr. W. H. Godfrey, manager of the  Vancouver branch of the Bank of. B.  N. A., paid Hedley a visit last week.  This was his first trip to Hedley  since the branch was opened here. Mr.  Godfrey visited the Nickel Plate on  Saturday last, and also went through  the stamp mill. Altogether he liked  the appearance of Hedley and was impressed with its prospects.  The Kettle River and Okanagan  Pioneers' Association will hold their  annual meeting at the Central Hotel,  Keremeos, on Thursday Sept. 17th.  This date has been made to enable  "Boundary members of the association  to get back home before Sunday.  There is every prospect that this will  prove a particularly interesting meeting of the association, as most of the  old-timers in the valley, who have  been communicated with are. likely to  be present. Those who have resided  in the district since 1890 are eligible  for membership.  The Keremeos Trumpet thus refers  to the mission of Mr. Harris, who paid  Hedley a visit last week : "G. Harris  of the "Okanagan", Vernon, and wife,  were in Keremeos on Tuesday and  Wednesday.

Additional interest was lent to the  trap shooting because of the. fact that  in addition to the competition for the  purse of $75, divided into four prizes,  the Shatford- cup was also to be defended by the Hedley team which won  it in Keremeos on Victoria. Day. One  team, Fairview, appeared on the scene  and made a try for it but failed to "lift  the cup." ��������� Strange grounds and a  strange trap was against the visitors,  some of whom were unable to keep up  their  usual scores.  The team selected to defend the cup  for Hedley were. E. D. Boeing, F. H.'  French, Bert Harris and Dr.Whillans.  Fairview's team was made up of H.  Jones, C. Jones, J..R. Brown and. W.  Dalrymple.

He justifies the postponement of  the election in Yale-Cariboo and  claims that Martin Burrell will not  have a fighting chance; the result of  the elections being known, the docile  voters of the constituency will return  a member in line with the government.  It is just possible that our friend has  misjudged the temperament of the  people of Southern British Columbia.  We are inclined to think that their  spirit of fair play will hold good, even  through an..electidn contest, and furthermore that they will resent being  deprived of the opportunity of taking  part in the election contest until after  the fight is over and interest dead."  oo o* oo ���������**���������> a ������ k co c oo if- & ���������i oi.  The above scores gave first prize to  F. H. French, and 2nd to Ed. Riehter,  and four were tied for 3rd place, when  in a shoot-off B. Harris won it with a  straight of five birds and L. C. Rolls  got 4th  place.  ;    ..   HORSE   RACES.  "In the horse' racing visitors had the  opportunity of seeing some closely contested events, particularly in the free-,  fpr-y.ll, where eight horses started in a  bunch and finished in a bunch in each  heat. At the end of three heats it was  found . that three horses, Garrison's  Baldy, H. Richter's Scamper and Andrew Charlie's Dave, had each won a  heat. On a fourth heat 1st prize was  given to Baldy, which had twice led ;  and Dave was given 2nd prize, having  got 1st place in one heat and 2nd place  in another.   The prizes were:  Free-for-all ��������� 1st Garrison's Baldy,  2nd Charlie's (Indian) Dave.  Saddle horse ��������� 1st Shuttleworth's  Daniel, 2nd Hancock's Steptoe.

NOTES.  The Shatford cup is a beautiful  trophy, of which the gun club are justly proud. From its size, beauty of design and elaborate workmanship, in  comparison with cups for the rifle competition, it has evidently been costly.  The upper Similkameen turned out  four oldrtimers in Robt. Stevenson,  Hughie Campbell, J. Thynrie and A.  Lament; and Manuel Barcello was up  from  Keremeos.  The Klootchman's race this year  didn't fill. The Indian fair ones have  taken to riding in buggies instead of  horseback, and the prize money doesn't  tempt as strongly as heretofore.  Princeton base-ballers' "Spokane"  jibes were mirth-provoking ��������� even if  they did sound a trifle ill-natured.

WEDDING BELLS  An interesting event took place in  Hedley on Sept. 3rd, being the marriage of Charles Bennett, the popular  blacksmith of the Nickel Plate, and  Miss Emily Swanson.. The marriage  ceremony was performed by Rev. J.  Thurburn Conn, at the private residence of John Lind, proprietor of the  Great Northernjiotel,' before a small  company.

Y in the letters of William Cowper, tne  poet, is an  interesting description of  some old fashioned political campaign  tactics in England:  "We were sitting  yesterday after dinner, the two ladies  and myself,'very composedly and without tlrq, least apprehension of any such  Intrusion in our snug parlor, one lady  knitting,, the  other   netting,   aud  the  gentlemen winding worsted, when to  our unspeakable surprise a mob appeared  before  the. window,  a  smart  rap was heard at the door, tho boys  hallooed and the maid announced Mr.  Grenville.I Puss���������one of the tame har-ea  ������������������was uufortunately let out of her box,  60 that the candidate, with all his good  friends at his heels, was refused admittance at the grand entry and' referred to the back door* as the only possible way of approach.    In a minute  the yard, the kitchen  and the parlor  were .filled.    Mr. Grenville, advancing  toward me, shook rue by the hand with  a  degree of  cordiality  that  was  extremely seducing.    When  the conference, ended, Mr. Grenville squeezed my  . hand again, kissed the ladies and withdrew.   He kissed likewise the maid in  the kitchen and seemed upon the whole  a  most loving,  kissing,  kind hearted  gentleman."  Liken a  "Xosey" Clerk.  "That hew  salesman,"   remarked  a  floorwalker in a Broadway haberdasher's store to the proprietor, ''seems to  be an inquisitive sort of fellow.   When  business is slack ho noses about, looking at everything on the shelves, examining tags and peeping into boxes  that are not strictly in his. department.  I think I'll speak to him."'  "You will please do nothing of the  - sort," answered the proprietor.   "Clerks  who 'nose' about, as you express it, instead of posing by the door, are tho  young men- who know  exactly  what  goods we have in stock and where to  find them.   They do not keep a customer waiting while they run to you  or me and.risk losing a sale.   There is  nothing about my stock that I dou't  want.my clerks to know.

There was a gap in the  square, and five or six of "tho enemy  made a vicious rush forward, attempting-to get inside. Captain Wilson, who  was present with the naval brigade,  advanced to meet them alone, but his  sword broke in the endeavor to cut one  of the intruders down. Hereupon the  officer, instead of beating a hasty retreat, stood his ground and began  bowling over the enemy with his fists.  , Either from the nature of the ground  or, as the record puts it, "the surprising nature of his attack," Captain Wilson escaped with a few wounds and  was rescued by the square closing up  round him.
