Programme Carried Out as Closely as  Weather and Entries Would Permit  ���������Good Crowd from Outside Points.  Jupiter Pluvius arrears to disapprove of the day which Labor has set  upon for its annual holiday. On various years since Hedley has taken up  the day there have been some veiy  rainy celebrations and the manner iu  which the doses of moisture were administered on this occasion made it;  figure as one 'of-the'.worst dampeners  there have been in the series.  The first event on the programme  was the .  ROCK DRILLING  and if it had been brought oil' on time  the most of it would have been over  before the rain set in. but one of the  teams did not make tu<?ir appearance  on the ground until an hour after the  time set I'm* the contest and by this  time the rain hud set in hard and the  day had grown cold, which did not  improve matters for the other teams  that had been waiting on the spot in  the rain. Three teams entered and  when drawing had taken place for the  order of drilling the first team to drill  was S. E. Hamilton and G. B. Lyon  who had-had luck with their ateel. no  less than five of the bits breaking in  the hole almost in succession, filling  the hole with broken steel which was  a handicap that would more than  equal 12 or 11 inches in the depth  drilled and this..put them.-practically  qut:df th'e"iunuing'as fcfieyA6nTy'g6t'22  inches and did well to get that under  L.

The next team to  drill was Duffy and Burke from the  Nickel Plate mine who got 29 1-16 inches with no broken  steel,  although  they were somewhat handicapped also  by their steel  being on  the soft side  for  the hardness of the rock.    Their  steel like the first team  was the full  seven-eighth in diameter and unswag-  ed.   The last team to drill was   McEaehern brothers who got 30 5-8 inches  depth but the hole they drilled would  scarcely go  three-quarters  of an inch  in diameter as they used swaged steel  with the corners of the bits drawn out  about 1-16 and as  these fine  corners  were sure to gp off with the first blow  and wore to small too cause the slightest amoiit of trouble iu  the hole they  had an advantage which   would have  required them to get much more depth  than  they did.     Nevertheless   those  who advertised  the  contest foiled to  specify   that   full   seven-eighth   steel  must be  used and  that   no swaging  would   be allowed  and  under  the circumstance   the   McEaehern   brothers  who got the prize were scarcely to be  blamed  for  taking advantage  of the  oversight as they were in no position  to  know whether other teams  would  not do the same us  themselves.    If all  teams were  required to use  the same  brand  of steel and  all sharpened and  tempered  the same the contest would  then   be won  on its  merits  so far as  skill,   muscle and   endurance   of   the  drillers is concerned.  HOUSE    RACES  In the afternoon the races were not  long in progress until the rain began  again and developed into a downpour  with a fierce driving wind in which  was mixed a chilly November tang  and as it continued to rain steadily for  the balance of the afternoon it was  impossible to carry out any more of  the programme in such weather. Next  morning, however, was fine and the  horse racing was resumed. The following were winners in the various  horse-racing events:  Free for All���������1st Charlie Allison's  horse, 2nd Alexis.  Pony race���������1st Garrison's "Gray  Dick", 2nd Charlie Loudon's "Black  Beauty."  Colt Race���������1st .1. Dinnis' "���������Nelly",  2nd D. J. Innis' "Fleetfoot".  Ladies' Saddle-horse���������1st Miss Daly,  2nd Miss Innis.  Concluded on Pago Four.  In  the past    Labor Day  in Hedley  and the  celebration that goes with it.  has been invariably .'the occasion for  more or less lawlessness of fine kind  or another. The event seems to attract these loose fish with looser  morals and they flock around like flies  around a pot of treacle. If it is not  debauching the Indians with booze it  is apt to take some cither form of law  breaking. This time some of the offenders could not wait until the celebration was on h;i',-f-3ought to take  time by the forelock.-  On    Friday   morning    last   Walter  Wuddel who   has   been   working   all  summer in Washington state and had  some  of his savings7in   the form   of a  roll  of United  States  ten dollar  bills  gave them   to a companion William .J.  On* to keep for him while he went out  on the  range to look for some horses.  Orr counted  the money and found   it  to amount to about ,$167, being in two  rolls���������one of $140 in. U. S. ten  dollar  bills and  the other smaller one of $27.  He put  both rolls in-the  pocket of his  overalls  and went to the bar-room of  the Grand Union  where he  began to  imbibe  more than   was good for  him  and to make the acquaintance of some  strangers who would have been better  to  have remained-strangers  to him.  About noon he discovered that only  the small roll  of $27 remained  with  him and the larger had disappeared.  By this  time   Wuddel  had   returned  and he informed  him of the loss and  gave h im bac k the re inn in i ng $27.   At  this juncture constable Sproule had  been  phoned for mid his  snspictions  fell  on a young fellow  named  Blair  who had drifted in for the celebration.  He noticed Blair coming in.from  the  rear of   the   building and concluded  rthfil--.be ..Jiud.gone^-^:t.,..ta.uavQid-. him  when he knew he was coining.   He re--  mained   there   some   time   with   the  crowd that had gathered on the news  of the robbery, and was paying special  attention  to the  actions of Blair and  his  companion  McGillivary   and   the  remarks they were making.    He went  out to the back  to have a look around  for some likely place where the money  might be  hidden  as he expected that  the guiltv party would take care not  to have the money on his person, and  a likely  place to  him seemed  the ice  house among the sawdust.     Here he  began  digging  when  L. O. Rolls saiv  him and  came over to him, and from  Rolls he  learned  that Blair had been  there some time before and he showed  him  the  particular part   of the   icehouse where Blair had been.     He dug  there and a roll of bills amounting to  $00 in United  States ten dollar  bills  soon came to view.     He went back to  the  bar-room   where he left the suspects and gave  them  to   understand  that he had  been unable  to find anything and  was going home,  but  instead of going he went to Bolls' store  and  took up  his station  at  the back  window  from  which   Rolls had   seen  Blair go   into the icehouse.     After ic-  maining at the  window for some time  he saw   McGillivray come   to   the ice  house    and     begin    digging    in    the  same dust, but not in the right place.  He  was  afterwards joined   by   Blair  who  started in  to help to  look in the  sawdust,   but Blair went at once  to  the spot where the roll had been found.  After watching them   for a while and  seeing  them   make an  effort to  close  the  door of the  icehouse so  that no  one  might see  them within,   he went  over to  them and   began  questioning  them and  finally took them both into  custody.     He searched  both of them  and found some small change on Blair  and a ten   dollar United States bill on  McGillivray.     He  afterwards  turned  McGillivary loose and went back with  him   to  the Grand  Union when   McGillivray  bought  a. drink giving the  ten   dollar  bill iu  payment and from  the  till  this  bill was afterwards  obtained to serve as an exhibit.  Blair's case came up for hearing on  Saturday afternoon before A. Megraw  and while the evidence adduced  might not be considered sufficiently  director complete to warrant conviction if the case were being tried summarily, it was nevertheless too strong  for the bench to take the responsibility of turning him loose by dismissing  THAT WELCOME  fOTLATCH  Hedley Gold Mining Co. again  to  the   Fore  With  tlie  Quarterly Dividend  SUDDEN DEATH  FIVE PER CENT. FOR QUARTER  Expenditure Above the Average But no  Lessening of the Rate.���������Much Development Goes Forward���������The Development Under Windfall Bond Increases Outlay Considerably.  The ever welcome news of the usual  quarterly dividend paid by the Hedloy  Gold Mining Company to its stock  holders is to hand this week from the  head c>ffice of the 'company in New  York. The dividend is the established,  quarterly three per cent with the additional two per cent bonus, and is  payable September 30th to stock holders of record on the 16th.  Owing to the wetness of the summer  which caused frequent delays of a few  hours duration each time through  washing out of parts of the flume, and  also that the company has been under  heavier expense during the past three  months because of the additional outlay in prospecting under the bond  which they hold on the Windfall  group now being tested, there were  some who were wondering whether  the jisual rate could be maintained,  but all such doubts are set at rest. On  the Windfall development all the company's own diamond drills are fully  manned and contracts were let to a  diamond drill contracting company  who brought in drills of their own to  put down additional holes  The development work on the Nickel  J?laU*.:i|.solf''.Thiol: has goiic ������::i,steadily  is still showing up the most gratifying  extent of the ore reserves and the  maintenance of their values and while,  it may be too much to expect that in  the face of all this additional outlay  they may be able to repeat the princely dividend performance of last December it is reassuring that it has not  lessened the rate of the dividends up  to the present point.  Following is the official notice of tlie  dividend:  Hedley Gold Mining Company" .  42 Bioadway  New York, August 26, 1912  A quarterly dividend of three percent. (3%) and  an additional dividend  of two per cent (2%) has this day been  declared  on  the outstanding   capital  stock of this  Company, payable Monday, September 30, 1912, to stockholders of record at 3:00 o'clock p.m., Monday, September 16th. 1912.

Clarke, secretary.  The citizens  of Hedley were  very  much surprised on  Tuesday morning  when the word got around that Thos.  Sirois Duplessis  better known around  town as Tommy Sirois had been found  dead in the Grand Union Hotel  at an  early hour that   morning.     Ho   was  found  by Dave Henderson   who  was  helping to tend bar Monday night. He  had been  seen to  reel and  stagger in  the bar the evening before and he was  placed in a chair  when he  seemed to  curl up  in it in what   was thought to  be a  drunken  sleep  and no  one  paid  any further attention to him.     At an  early hour next morning,   however,  when he w.-ts noticed to be in the same  place an  effort was  made  to  arouse  him  when   he. was found   to be  cold.  No inquest  was  thought to   be necessary and the cause of his death is variously stated to  have been   heart failure and paralysis.     It is reported that  he  was expecting a  sister  to  arrive-  shortly  to  keep house for  him,   but  very little appears to be-known of him  or his friends.    The  funeral will lake  place today.  THE LATE MRS. COLLIN  After a long and trying illness. Barbara  Collin, 'wife'of Mr. R. S. Collin,  died  at the  Hedley General   Hospital  on Monday evening.    On a visit to her  birthplace in England some four yeais  ago she was- stricken with paralysis of  one side and her life was then despaired of for  some  time,  but she after  wards regained   strength   enough   to  attempt the trip back   to Canada and  her husband  went over to England to  bring her back.     Since then she never  fully recovered  the use of her limbs  that were paralyzed although at times  she seemed to make recovery that led  to  the hope that   the   clot of blood  which causes  the trouble  in all  such ���������  cases might in   time become.absorbed;.',  7i n d tlie"i'l 1.effects' pa^k."lmt  tlie liope^  was doomed to disappointment.     A  month ago or more  other trouble developed which necessitated the amputation of the leg above the knee ori the  side  that Was not paralyzed   to pro  long her lite.   The clot which was the  prime cause   of  the .paralysis   again  militated against recovery   from the  amputation  as it interfered   with the  circulation of the blood and free circulation  is an  essential  when   there is  any serious wound to be healed.  During her long trying illness sha  received at all times the devoted care  of her husband who was ever unremitting in his efforts to minister to her  comfort and spared no effort nor expense to benefit her. The funeral on  Tuesday was largely attended and  many floral offerings testified the  esteem in which she was held. Warmest sympathy is extended to the bereaved husband and to the niece, Miss  Nowhousi������. who earne out fmin England a few months ago and assisted in  caring for her until she was removed  to the hospital.

RouKirr Buown, Indian agent  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  EXTENSION OF TIME  If  anything   were   wanting   to   disillusionize tlie people of  Great Britain  and show them   the  erratic:  character  of the  orbit  of   that great  luminary  Sir Wilfrid Laurier  across their skies  a few years ago   it was furnished  last  week by   Sir Wilfrid himself  when he  addressed the guests  at that  banquet  in .Ottawa ..at-   which   he.   in   common  with two  visiting   Britons.   Mr. Arthur  Grenfell    and  Sir  Arthur    Lawly  weie guests.     Sir Wilfrid   took   upon  himself in the presence   of these   visitors to assume  a lofty air  of superiority and also of reproof to the people of  Great Britain   for  spending  so   niiie-h  money   in    "arms   and   armaments."  "You  in England"   he said   "think all  the tinm of armaments and spend half  your revenue upon them,   we think of  railways and canals."     If it were only  -the exceeding  bad taste   he  displayed  in uttering such sentiments  on  such  an occasion,   that in  itself would  he  sufficient     humiliation     to     Canada  which must bear a certain amount of  the stigma, but  that  is only  a small  part of the shame attaching the utterance of these   sentiments  at  such   a  time.    Not for a hundred years has  Britain faced   the crisis  which she  is  doing to-day   and  France  under the  lirst Napoleon   was no more a menace  to   the  peace    and   well-being of  the  world than Germany is at the present  time.     Had   the   British   parliament  been led   in those trying   times  of the  beginning  of  the  last century   by a  man who   could   utter   such   ignoble  sentiments   instead of  by a statesman  like the younger Pitt, or had she been  unduly  influenced    by  the*   academic  rot of   Foxo.   where  would  she  have  been to-day?   The whole  British Empire  and many of the other  countries  of Europe  are depending wholly upon  the protection of  Britain's   navy, and  outside? of Britain   herself  no part ot  the world  should be more  concerned  than  Canada   that Britain's supremacy on the sea be maintained.  Laurier  who has boxed the compass politically  on   nearly  every   question    of public  policy  in this country   used  to  boast  that some objected to him   because he  was   too  British.      He  has certainly  taken good care now  that no one  will  ever have  occasion to find like fault  with him again.   The News-Advertiser  very aptly remarks  that  Canada has  little, cause for boasting  that she  is  thinking only of railways and  canals,  for if Britain   had been thinking only  'V'OTJCK is hereby given that the time for  -*-' the reception ot tenders for the construction of tlie victoria Harbour.

He is due. in Victoria on .'the sixteenth  and'..has to make an examination of  the coal basin at White .Lake before  that date.  Miss  Eastman, the  second teacher,  was  taken ill at Keremeos the begin-  ���������ning  of the   week and   was   unable to  take her work yesterday 'morning.    It  .���������is expected,   however, that she, will be  on hand Monday morning.  ��������� A round  seven dozen   and live eggs  in the  month of August, .was the re-i  ���������cord  of one  pen of 12 white, leghorn  pullets in Hedley purchased from T.C  .Brooke   of.

Harold Townsend played lacrnss for  Keremeos in Coahnont on Monday  and got a clip with a. la cross stick  which is apparently a. necessary .and  jiorioi-uhie accompaniment of thegaine,  but next day he was none thewor.se  for the mishap.  Mr. and Mrs. Civ P.. Jones went out  on Tuesday's train accompanied by  Miss Avonio. and Gomer.. Mr.' Jones  was only going as far as Penticton,  but Mrs. Jones was going through to  Victoria with Avon in who is going to  nttend St. Margaret's school for girls.

Paul Nelson came back to Hedley  last week and from all reports he is  not going to he any tho worse off for  being robbed in the Oroville coop, as  it is.clalmed that he has a good strong  case against the-authoritii-s and is go  hove provided, and seemed very much  pleased with what has been accomplished in that line. Whether it is  going to result in his'recommendation  of a, special rate for'Hedloy with the  Underwriters remains to be seen; but  one thing is very sure and that is  that any danger of them declining  risks because of helplessness of the  town to combat lire is now pretty  well past.   ���������   ������������������  ���������       ,. ������������������" ;   -  G.

In some 'places he finds a prejudice against the; coal existing as a  a relic of the mistake 'made by the  company a couple of years ago in marketing so much .of the" output before  they we're''in'a position to do proper  cleaning,^ classifying and grading.

Tuesday morning found the board  walks covered with hoar frost and the  mercury showed two degrees of frost  j which did more or less harm to gardens that were not protected by artificial means.  H. H. Messenger and Ed Burr ope.n-  od the doer hunting season by going  out early on Mejnday morning and  bringing in a two point buck which  fell to Messenger's rifle. There were  five deer in the bunch but as only one  of the hunters was in range and the  others had a good chance to make a-  get-away  they succeeded in  doing so.  Robert Stevenson, latterly dubbed  Colonel, but more familiarly known  as the. father of the Similkaineen was  among the visitors to Hedley on  Labor Day. He always patronizes the  Labor Day sports in Hedley, not even  being deterred therefrom by the accident which occurred when he was  thrown out of a rig about live years  ago. He is a great admirer of a. good  horse and a horse nice recalls for him  many incidents of that sport in the  earlier days of the valley.  School started yesterday after the  summer holidays with the new  teacher in charge. Mr. A. P.

Don't forget the Dry Farming congress to take place at Lethbridge,  October 19-20. The farmer who can  conveniently finance the trip should  receive sufficient benefit to repay him  the outlay.  Alaska will some' day provide farmers in lower altitudes,.with grain^seeds  superior to what they can grow at  home.  Carefully conducted   investigations  by the agricultural department of the  University of Minnesota, as   well as  those conducted by the  office of farm  management of the United States Department of Agriculture,  shows that  under ordinary conditions on American  farms work   horses   are   utilized  only about three and a  half hours a  day  on  a average.     Horse  power is  thus   utilized to  less than  half its capacity.     Per unit of work done this  power costs more  than twice what it  should cost.  The full utilization of the  power actually available  would thus  leduce materially the cost of producing crops.   The cost of keeping a work  horse  is on the  average about $125 a  year.    The  average utilization  of the  horse is about 1250 hours a year, at an  hourly cejst of 10 cents  per hour.    If  we double  the number of hours' work  the horse  does���������and this  can be done  without injury  to the animal���������we reduce   the  hourly cost to five  cents.,  W. J.

Hedley  had decidedly the best of it, the- score  standing 14 to -three in their favor for  the first four innings with Billy Corrigan in the box for Hedley. Maurice  Daly pitched for Keremeos but he  was wild and gave a good many passes  and while he had much difficulty in  locating the plate there was a deadly  precision in his aim at opposing batsmen several of whom he managed to  wing at various stages of the game,  and he pinked Billy Corrigan the Hedley heaver on the throwing arm in the  first inning. As a resiilt Messenger  was sent in to pitch after the fourth  innings to save Billy's sore wing and  after that they got the rest of their  tallies. The game was umpired by R.  Wheeler who was hospitable in several  of his decisions but tho home players  were magnanimous and forgiving and  he was at no time in very serious danger nor found it necessary to take to  the woods.

THE   DANCE  The dance in Shat.ford's hall in the  evening was well attended and was  one of the most successful functions  of the kind connected with Labor Day  that have been held in any year. A  great many strangers were present;  the floor was iu good condition; the  music supplied by Miss Lyall, W. Daly  and AV. Knight was pronounced excellent by all the guests and the supper provided by the hotels was eminently satisfactory.  There were no competitors for the  trap shooting and that portion of the  programme was called off.  NOTES  A few years ago those who attended  the celebration were either on foot or  on horseback. Later on buggies ahd  carriages began to appear on the scene  and now the ubiquitous auto is much  in evidence.
