SATURDAY, FEB. 10th, 1900.
A man that complains of hard times
now ought to take a walk around the
block aud see if he is alive.
A drive in any direction from the
station ought to convince the most
skeptical that this valley is on the improve. A number of improvements
are yet contemplated, and a season of
great activity is looked forward to.
The subscription list for this paper
is now open, and a goodly number
have paid their subscription. Come
thou and do likewise.
Moesbacks say this place is too small
+0 support a paper. Well, it may be,
but opinions differ, and now that the
Venture has been made we propos* to
eee it brought to a successful issue.
If the citizens do their share towards
its maintenance—we can be relied up*
on to do ours—there is no such word
aa fail.
Now that British Columbia's offer
to provide for and supply a contingent
of one hundred mounted men has
been accepted by the Dominion Government, conditional on the province
offering a proper unit, Premier Semlin
now has the opportunity to make good
his word relative to the offer made by
the people of this district.
Mr. Thomas W. Ross, a Liberal in
the House of Commons, England, and
-who opposed the Home Rule member
for South Division of Tyrone, in replying to Mr. Healy on behalf of the Government said, there was one day the
Boers would never celebrate, and that
was the date the British parliament should surrejgjpBr easier sjaokle
conditions as in liatt.. Do this we
might add that had e* eeemies interests been conauiteitf ftfesaussttref at
the present time Majuba would have
avenged by 1882, and there would
have been no war to talk etout at the
present time. Any other nation contemplating treading on the lion's tail
can now plainly tee that they have her
not alone to deal with, hat her eons -
her colonies. Verily, he would find
that the way of the transgressor is
hard.
