Hindus Balk.
It would appear as it' the Dominion authorities were not going to
get rid of the indigent Hindus as
expeditiously and smoothly as was
expeeted. Their suspicions have
been aroused owing to alleged
shady work in connection with the
investigation of conditions at Honduras and the report submitted
thereon. Kast week they refused
to receive the report of commissioner Harkin unless he would deliver
it in Ihe inner, saered recess of
their temple, which he rightly refused to do. It is now expected
that the government will resort to
the emigrant act and export as many
as possible of them as undesirables.

Registers With Thumb Mark.
Tacoma,Wash., Dec. 8 Through
a new ruling of the Indian department Henry Taylor, a Puyalhip Indian, to-day registered his name, or
"mark" in a peculiar fashion, using
the impression of his thumb after
having daubed the member vvith
green ink. He is the lirst Indian
in Washington to register his identity by a thumb mark.
In a recent ruling by tbe Indian
bureau it was deemed necessary on
account of forgeries to change the
method of identification of persons
who could not sign their names, especially among  the Indians.
Origin of the Devil.
The term, printer's devil as applied to the boy who does the chor-
ing around the printing office, -ays
Printer Ik Publisher, has a peculiar,
romantic history. In the early days
printing was styled the "black art"
and printers were supposed to be in
league vvith Satan. But it was in
the time of Aldus Minutius in Venice that matters took a serious turn.
This was the famous printer who
first published the tireek and Roman
classics. He took into his employ
a negro boy vv ho was homeless on
the streets of Venice. The people
supposed the hoy was an imp vif
Salan and helped in the printing.
Molis collected aboul to wreck it
when the boy was brought forward
aiul exhibited and shown to be llesh
and blood, but, he was still called
the "printer's devil" and every boy
in his position ever since has heen
called so.

Company Offer Reward of $3,-
OOO for the Arrest and Conviction of the Bandits.
yesterday morning the local
agent of the Great Northern received a dispatch from superintendent
Morgan of Spokane stating that
No. 4, eastbound, which leaves
Spokane at eleven o'clock, had been
held up at Hillyard, a few miles out
of the city, and that the company
would pay the reward indicated
above for the capture and conviction of the persons engaged in the
No details are given, but it is apparent that the desperadoes turned
the trick in professional style and
1 were no amateurs at the job. The
prompt manner in which the company are getting alter the bandits,
together with the substantial nature
of the reward, would suggest that
the hold-up was one of considerable
import to them.
Men of sufficient ingenuity to
successfully engineer a coup of this
nature, however, are not likely to
expose themselves along the branch
lines of the company's roads or even
take to the wilds where their capture would be almost certain. They
would he far more likely to mingle
with the crowds now attending the
fair at Spokane, where their presence would not be noticed and their
chances of apprehension greatly reduced.
Up Against It.
Editing a paper is a nice thing.
If vve publish jokes, people say we
are rattle-brained. If vve publish
original matter they say we don't
give them enough selections. If
we give them selections they say we
are too lazy to write. If we don't
go to church we are heathens. If
vve go vve are hypocrites. If we remain in the office, we ought to go
out and hustle. If vve go ont, then
vve are not attending to business,
lf vve wear old clothes they laugh at
us. If we wear good clothes they
say that we have a pull. Just as
likely as pot sivio one will lay u/i
stole this from an exchange. So
vve did.
Work on the Ditch.
Alter many long delays and much
disappointment in getting lumber
from the saw mills, the Land ("ompany have at last got all the material they need and the Hume work
will soon he in the completed list
vvith the pipe-line, head-gates and
bridge. 'There vet remains a little
open ditch work to do, but good
progiess is being made and it will
soon be completed. Should present
temperatures continue it is altogether likely that the bringing down of
the water and the testing of the
pipes will be left till the opening of
spring as a satisfactory test could
scarcely be made now.
[I'almi-i    Mountain  PlKSSSaSSSf.]
On Saturday, Nov. 21, R.J. Armstrong, the widely known and old
j time resident of the Similkameen
vallev, just across the line in Hritish
Columbia, and Miss Gertude Shohe,
ol Gashere, Indiana, were married
at Oroville. 'The marriage was
much eif a surprise to Mr. Armstrong's friends, who had no suspicion of the happy event. The
groom has resided in this vicinity
many years, and has a wide circle
of friends on both sides of the international line. 'The bride is a very
attractive, intelligent and charming
young lady. The Prospector joins
vvith other friends and acquaintances in wishing the couple a King anil
happy life.
Prom  reports  appearing in  the
Spokesman-Review, the  big  apple
show at Spokane is proving a tremendous success, both in point of
attendance and magnificence, and
extent of the fruit displayed. So
striking are the exhibits from Canada that the directors are agreed
that the fair should have been international in name as it is in fact.
On Tuesday the heavy mist that
had enveloped the valley for several
days condensed and fell in the form
of a light covering of snow. Since
then the weather has recovered its
usual brightness.
H. W. Conkling took advantage
ofthe   reduced   rates,   now   on,   to
visit Spokane this week. Before
returning he may go to Portland to
consult an oculist in regard to his
eves, which hav e heen troubling him
Rev. A. II. Cameron is negotiating with the I.anil Cc for an exchange of his ten-acre lot on the
bench for a three-.icie one on the
flat. The deal will be one of convenience to both panics,  Mr.    Cam*
eron having decided thai ten acres
is rather loo much for him, and the
Land Co. requiring right of way for
their ditch through the lot now held
bv Mr. Cameron.
Eastern Excursions.
Cheap rale tickets to eastern Can-
ada, good for three months, ire be-
Ing offered by the Great Northern.
The tare from Keremeos lo Montreal or Toronto and return is 096.S5.
No excursion 'ales are offered to
points in Manitoba. A Splendid Number.
The December number oi Westward Ho! fully equals if it does not
surpass the sanguine announcement
of its publishers. Its Christmas
greetings are suffused with thai
glow of hope which is sure to awaken a responsive chord in the patrons
and friends to whom they are addressed. The greetings with the
artistic colored design are altogether chaste and unique. The reproduction oi views oi the T'ranco-Hrit- \
ish Exhibition, which are most interesting to Canadians, is certainly j
superb and well worthy oi preservation as a memento.
The fiction stands high, and exhales the spirit of Christmas in such
plentitude that it transports us into
the joys and raptures of the season.
But good as it is, in respect of deep
and abiding and soul stirring pathos
it is transcended by the poetry. |
Mrs. Blanche K. Holt Murison's
three poems, "Christmas Day,"
"Ave Maria" and "The Message oi
Christmas" are not only exquisite in
style, and elevated in sentiment but
they are of that order which pronounces them as the offspring of the
Mens Divinior. What, too, could
be more seasonable and sweet than
Mrs. Agnes Lockhari Hughes'
"Holy Sprays," or more provocative
of mirth and of a full hilarous laugh
than the poetical of "Wiggs' Pig"
by J. C. Harris and its adroit illustrations }
The story by Arthur Davies "The
Lady oi the Mannion" is specially
written for this number, and its best
commendation is to say, it fully sustains the reputation of the author.
"The Expiation of John Reedham"
by Anne S. Swan is continued, and
grows more intense in its interest
as it unfolds. 'Two Othei stories
have also been specially written for
the Christmas issue : "As the
House of Dreams" by Mrs, Agnes
Lockhart Hughes, and "'The Christmas That Was Nearly Lost" by
Mrs. Ethel G. Cody Stoddard. Oi
Mrs. Hughes it is unnecessary to
eulogi/e, for she towers high among
the writers of fiction and poetry,
and Mrs. Stoddard has written a
story that is equal to her best.
"Out ofthe Night," by Douglas
Leader Durkkl, is a pathetic tale oi
the Russian peasantry, of their down
trodden condition vvith happily a
glimmer Of thai self emancipating
spirit that is now kicking off the accursed tyranny undei which the
nation groans. Billie Glynn as
usual sweeps us along vvith the
romance of his tale, "The Girl He
Left Behind Him," while "Love and
Honor" are pathetically counter-
painted by Nigel Toumeur.
Spoil, pastime, travel and description are represented by "A 'Trip

Value of Land Grants.
While in Winnipeg on his trip
cast Mr. K. Hurt purchased from a
broker a warrant for a South African veteran land tfrant. The price
paid was in the neighborhood of,
$500 aud is an indication ot the
values which the South African
hoys are placing on their donation
from the federal government.
According to the act, each veteran, on fulfilment oi the ordinary i
homestead duties is entitled to a
grant ot 320 acres. This does not
infringe upon his right as an ordinary individual to homestead, so that
any veteran, who is in a position,
and frilling, to perform the homestead duties, may acquire three
quarter-sections of land absolutely
free of charge. Should he also take
advantage ofthe new regulationi in
regard to pre-empting, he mav secure another quarter-section, making a whole section, or fi40 acres
in all.
If ordinary judgment  is  used  in
the selection of this land, at the end
of    three   years    the    homesteader
sliould hold a title to property worth
from $15 to $20 per acre or upwards
of $10,000 in all.     It is an   alluring
proposition   to   anyone,    and   one
which any young man   of moderate
means, not otherwise tied  down   in
business,   should   contemplate   well
before disposing ol  his   opportunity
for a few paltry hundreds.
Though the act does not permit
of a veteran hav ing the homestead
duties performed by a substitute, it
does permit of the transferring or
selling of the warrants, the party
purchasing becoming possessed of
all the advantages pertaining to the
grant. The wise provision in reference to the actual performance of
homestead duties effectually removes the grants from Ihe grasp of
speculators, bul we have strong
suspicion that brokers and middle*
men are making handsome commissions by finding purchasers for the
warrants of such veterans as are in
a hurrv tO dispose of their holdings,
The writer is himself a holder of
one i>f these wan,mis anil would
advise his COmradei to be in no
haste to dispose of what is most
certainly a v aluable assel.
With the completion of the big
irrigation scheme now well in Hgbl
and Ihe consequent placing on the
market of a vast ivimber of the
choicest fruil lots in Hritish Columbia, everything points to new life in
our district next season. In order
to lake full advantage  of  the   tide,
when il comes, citizens ot    Keremeos   should    get    together   ami   form
some sort of organisation initeadol
each pulling in his own way, and at
odds and ends   vvith   his   neighbor.
Hut ing the comparative lull   of  the,
ensuing winter months much in  the [
way of preparation   can   be  accom-
With this object in view the!
Trumpet some time ago suggested
the forming of a board of trade as
being the most convenient form for
such organization to take. It is
unnecessary at this stage to again
point out the influence which such
an organization could be made to
exert. It is sufficient to say that
now appears to be the time to act.
A satisfactory explanation of why
our school building was not erected
this year is not forthcoming. Estimates for the purpose were passed
and tenders invited. At least two
were received and thev were as low
as was compatible vvith good workmanship and the price of material
at this point. In comparison, however, vvith the price paid Yor similar
buildings, at or near the coast, these
tenders appeared high and were
turned down by the department.
The announcement was then made,
and the assurance given our school
board by the member of this constituency, that Ihe department
would undertake the work itself and
that it would be pushed to completion without any unnecessary delay,
so that the building would be ready
for use by the first of the year.
This, Mr. Shatford claims, was
the understanding between himself
and the chief commissioner of lands
and works, when the former !*ft on
his trip to Nova Scotia. On his return he was much surprised to learn
that nothing had been done, absolutely nothing.
Apparently there was a breach of
faith somewhere, either between the
department and Mr. Shatford or between the latter and his constituents in this school district, but,
whether the delay is the result of
deliberate intention or of culpable
neglect, it is all one to the people
of Keremeos who have to put up
with the inconvenience.
It is now too late to accomplish
anything this year but it is to be
hoped that our school board vvill
wake up, shake themselves and see
that everything is in readiness to
commence the work at the eailiest
possible moment next spring. It is
indeed a question if their apathy
was not largely responsible for the
delay this year. While it may be
argued thai it should not have been
necessary, a little pressure, or at
least simie slight flicker of interest
on their part might have supplied
the necessary stimulus to the officials at Victoria. So far as vve can
learn they never once wrote to inquire why the promised work was
not being commenced, but passively
allowed days to pass into weeks
and weeks into months until the
season was past. With such cool
indifference on our own part we begin to wonder if, after all, we have
any real kick coming.
