About Hallett
For many years The Ledge has
been aware of I. H. Hallett's contemptible acts towards some of the
citizens in Greenwood, but until
recently has refrained from commenting upon these acts. However here is a sample of how Hallett acts towards some people.
Hallett is one of the directors,
and probably   has   one   share   of
stock in the. company that furnishes
Greenwood with electric light and
power.    The Ledge is one of the
principal customers of that company, and for ten years the business   relations   between tbe   two
concerns have been peaceable and
beneficial to both.    When the late
manager H. C. Cummins died, and
before another manager   was appointed by the president in Spokane,   Hallett was temporarily in
command of the local affairs of the
company.      He   immediately  got
busy, and without any cause whatever discharged  two trusted  and
worthy employees, replacing them
with his brother Edwin and his
stenographer.    If it was entirely
his    own   business   no   comment
would be necessary.    Unless some
great saving was effected for the
company,  and The Ledge understands that such was not the case,
then Hallett acted unwisely,  unjustly, and not in the true interests of the electric light company.
His personal  ideas   and   dislikes
should have been  subordinate to
those of the  company.   William
Swayne was eventually appointed
manager by the president.   He#-
a quiet,   worthy and  industrious
young married man with excellent references from firms in Chicago and other cities where he had
worked. . After Swayne's appointment Hallett made life miserable
for this young man, pestering him
with all kinds of foolish orderp,
under the delusion that be was
still a little local kaiser for the
company.
One day   when   the    bile had
mounted   a   little   higher   in. his
cranium  than  nsual this  foolish,
spiteful and unreasonable old man
bounced into    the   electric  light
office, and ordered Swayne to take
the company's ad out of The Ledge
at once or he would have him discharged.      The    old    fellow  just
raved, howled and stuttered, until
he nearly had a fit.    Swayne being
a man of honor and common sense
rafused  to obey   such   an   order.
He notified the president in Spokane, and there has been no more
trouble.      Evidently   Hallett   received notice to mind his own business.    The Ledge is prepared to
vouch   for   all   its   statements in
reference to Hallett,  and furnish
many more if necessary.    It is an
insult to the intelligence of any
community to permit such a man
as  I. H.   Hallett to act as police
magistrate or even  practise   law.
The government should  have bis
bead assayed  by an expert upon
insanity.
The Joe Dandy group, owned by
W, J. Armstrong, Art Thompson
and Hugh McCormack, has been
bonded to Spokane mining men for
$50,000. The property is situated
on Similkameen river, north of
Susap creek, eight miles north of
Boundary line. The bond was
taken after two thorough examin-
ations last summer. ' Operations
will commence as soon as spring
opens, andjnot later than May 1.
This deal means mach to prospectors in that district, and it is
understood several other properties will change ownership this
summer.���Hedley Gazette.   - THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA.

The news which reached town
last week of a strike being made
in the Omineca country, still unfortunately lacks confirmation, but
if proves true will cause no surprise to those acquainted with the
splendid possibilities of the country.
This district was first brought
into prominence as early as 1868,
by tlie discovery of gold on Silver
creek, one of tbe branches of the
branches of the Omineca river.
On the announcement of the discovery of gold, miners flocked into
the country by hundreds, and for
some time the population of the
district was estimated at about
1500. It reached its maximum
about 1879, and has since gradually declined. In late years various   companies

story  of  two Irishmen who were

They waited for   sometime behind

to pass in the evening  but he did
not put in an appearance.    Finally
one of them crept out to the brow
of the hill  where he had  a good
view of the road for some distance
but saw  nothing of the   prospective victim.    He crept back arifl

Roosevelt Started the War
Have you heard this story? Tbe
Crown Prince was having a nice
little chat with his father, the
Butcher of Potsdam, and apropon
of nothing said, "Father who
started this war."
"I know," said the father playfully, but I wonst tell."
"Did Cousin George start it?"
persisted the youth without a chin.
"No!" said the Father.
"Did Cousin Nicholas?"
"No!" said papa:
"Did Francis-Joseph?"
"No!" said the Old Man.
"Well, who did then?"
"I'll tell you,son! You remember Teddy Roosevelt came out of
Central Africa and c'alled on us
several years ago, and I showed
him. our magnificienfe army; I
(-bowed him our great and glorious
navy: I showed him the Zepps and
the submarines and the gas bags,
and Teddy, greatly impressed,
slapped me on  the  back and said.
" 'Bill, my boy, you can lick the
world'���And, like a damned tool,
I believed him."Ex.
operations with satisfactory results, and there always has remained the feeling, based upon reports by miners and prospectors
that some day the mining glories
would be revived on a scale out-
rivalling the palmy days of the
seventies, when some of the bars
on the rivers yielded $50.00 per
day per man.
Before the advent of railway
transportation the inaccessibility
of the district, and the consequent
high prices of provisions and
equipment, had a seriously retarding effect on its development.
This condition is being gradually
overcome. The provincial government is doing its share by the construction of a road from Vanderhoof north, which will go into the
heart of metalliferous country.
This road is already built to a
point some twenty miles north of
Fort St. James, and the work; will
be continued this coming season.
The gold in the Omineca region
has been obtained principally from
the gravels overlying the older
rocks in the bed of the present
streams. The gravels as a rule
have little depth, and the productive portions of the different
streams seldsm exceed three miles
in length. No deep diggings or
extensive hydraulic workings have
so far been attempted in the district.
The auriferous gravels under
lying the boulder clay on the
creeks have a wide distribution
and promise favorable results if
worked on a sufficiently large scale,
Water can be obtained almost anywhere from lakes and mountain
streams within a reasonable district has by no means been thoroughly explored. The discovery
of pay gravels on Tom creek close
to Vital creek, twenty y'ears after
the later was found, shows bow
loose the examination has been.
The gold in the Omineca district
occurs in a coarse condition, nuggets often being found with quartz
still attached to them and is evi
dently derived from the band of
green schi&ts and argillites, which
outcrops along the Omineca and its
tributaries. The schists are every^
where much disturbed and are
boxed up by intrusions of granitic
and other eruptive rocks, and
present in this and other ways
promising indications that they
are metalliferous in character.
Possibly there is no other mining
region in the province today which
is more worthy of examination,
and it is a safe prediction that
further discoveries of valuable
auriferous creeks will be made.
Our position here as the gateway
to the Omineca is going to prove
one of our greatest assets, and the
developments taking place there
should be watched with the greatest interest.���Vanderhoof Herald.
The Ford Motor Company has
decided to establish an assembling
plant at Calgary and has bought a
site in the city for that purpose.
It will proceed in the early spring
to put up a large building, which
will be so designed as to permit
additional storeys being added as
needed. A considerable staff will
be employed from the first, and it
is expected the business will grow
to very large proportions.

"We are commencing to worry
because we have not heard from
Villa for some weeks," says an ex-
eration. It is stated that the
power to create the electricity will
be obtained from gigantic plants at
big coal mines.
