BANK OF MONTREAL
Annual  Statement Shows Increasing
Rate of Profit.
About Three-quarters of a Million
Carried Forward -Non Intertst
Bearing Deposits Show
Marked Increase
The Bank of Montreal statement for
the year ending October 31, shows the
gratifying net profits of the year to
have been thirteen and three-quarters
per cent, on the capital of i>14,4UO,000
as compared with twelve and a half per
cent, for 1906. The balance of profit
and loss brought forward amounted to
.159,831, and $1,440,000 has been distributed in quarterly dividends at the rate
of ten per cent, per annum, leaving
$699,960 to be carried forward to profit
and loss account. The total assets of
the bank now amount to $168,001,173,
of which $59,263,257 are practically almost available. The deposits of the
bank not bearing interest have increased
when compared with the last statement,
by five million dollars, while the deposits bearing interest have decreased
by nine million dollars. That is interesting as showing that more money or
credit is in current accounts for business
purposes, and that a good deal of money
has been drawn for investment purposes.
The statement of the result of the
business of the bank for the year ended
October 31, 1907, is as follows:

Vancouver Murder Mystery.
There have been no developments in
connection with the North Vancouver
murder mystery, according to the police,
who are very reticent, but admit that
possibly some other than the negro
Vinetto, now in custody, is the guilty
party.
In North Vancouver, where the affair
is still the sole topic of conversation the
belief is gradually but surely gaining
ground that the girl was not murdered
on the spot where the body was found.
The theory that she may have been
accidentally killed, possibly by a blast,
and that the body was carried away
and hidden, is heard in many quarters.
It is pointed out that this is just what
a foreigner such as a Japanese, Chinaman or Hindoo, would have done under
the circumstances, as he would naturally
fear being charged with the death of
the girl if she were found close to where
he might have been working.
The movements of the negro Vinetto
have been closely canvassed by hundreds
who have been over the ground, but
nothing new of any consequence has
developed.
LOCAL NBWS.
J. E. Bate, of Aspen Grove, was a
visitor to Nicola this week.

Police to Control Licences.
The provincial government has issued
an order cancelling practically all the
licensing districts north of the 50th
parallel of latitude with the exception
of Atlin. Licenses will in future be
issued by the superintendent of provincial police under terms of the act.
This decision has been arrived at
owing to the influx of settlers in the
northern country and the commencement of work by the G. T. P. With
power to grant or revoke licenses it will
be much easier for the provincial police
to enforce the law in these districts.
By this order the licenses in Prince
Rupert and Port Simpson will be controlled from Victoria, removing the
issuing of them from local influence.
R. Sidney Smith, of the Bank of
Montreal staff, returned on Monday
from a visit to the coast.
British Columbia fruit is repeating its
successes of last year at the various
shows held in Great Britain.
Hon. R. G. Tatlow is in receipt of a
cable from R. M. Palmer, provincial
horticulturalist, stating that the exhibit
has secured the silver rnedal at the
Crystal Palace exhibition, and the highest award at Hereford show. It is
expected that the fruit will do equally
well at the other points where it will be
exhibited, as, according to the cable
from Mr. Palmer, it is in good condition.
Mr. Palmer, who is in charge of the
exhibit, took with him a large supply
of fruit. It was rushed across the continent and the Atlantic in cold storage,
and is now being stored in a warehouse
in Liverpool. From this depot the
supplies for the various shows are
drawn.
With the fruit was shipped a large
quantity of literature furnished by the
provincial bureau of information for
distribution to those interested, and Mr.
Palmer and his assistant will lecture at
different points upon the possibilities of
the province.
Hedley's Report.
S. J. Solomon of the Diamond Vale
Supply Co., Coutlee, is visiting in Nicola
to-day.
W. G. Murray was confined to the
house for a few days this week with an
attack of tonsilitis, but is now thoroughly recovered.
The new club rooms of the Nicola
Athletic Association have now been
re-decorated, and the Association will
enter into possession this week.
Robert R. Hedley, who was appointed
some time since a special commissioner
by the mines department at Ottawa to
gather information regarding the mineral industry of the West, is now in the
boundary district.
Mr. Hedley, who was superintendent
of the Hall Mines smelter at Nelson for
ten years, is thoroughly qualified for
the work in hand, and has visited a
large part of the province already, having been through Slocan, Lardeau,
Rossland and Kootenays generally, as
well as through the coast mining districts wherever there is any activity,
including the Similkameen and Nicola
sections. He spent several days in the
Boundary. Mr. Hedley's district includes Manitoba, Saskatchewan.Alberta
and British Columbia, and when the
information is all gathered by the several assistants all over the Dominion,
the Ottawa government will compile
and publish the same, making it an
invaluable work of reference to those
interested in the mining industry in
Canada.
Big Plro ln Winnipeg.
A serious fire occurred in Winnipeg
on Wednesday and destroyed property
to the extent of $144,000. The Rat
Portage Lumber Co. are the largest
sufferers. A disastrous fire at Brandon
the same day did damage which is estimated at over $20,000.
Two officers and a civilian have been
arrested for desecrating the grave of
President Kruger in the cemetery at
Pretoria. It is alleged that their action
was a drunken freak.
Messrs. Lawson and Turner, who
received injuries at the late fire, are
progressing favorably and are now
quite out of danger.
A meeting of the Executive Committee of the Nicola Athletic Association will be held in the club rooms on
Monday evening at eight o'clock.
W. H. Armstrong, general manager
of the Nicola Valley Coal and Coke
Co.'s property at Middlesboro' Colleries,
arrived from Vancouver on Wednesday's
train.
Mr. Richardson, the adjuster of the
Royal Insurance Co., is in Nieola to-day
settling the amount of insurance to be
paid for the damage done by the late
fire.
Murderer Shot.
After a week's hunt a posse located
the desperado who last week shot to
death the widely-known and respected
trader, Robert Williams, in cold blood,
a week ago. The name of the desperado is given as Harry Stout, and that
he was a desperate character is shown
in the report of his capture. The chase
was exceedingly hard, for Stout at first
left no trace of his flight. He had
abandoned his stolen horses in the
mountains, which made it easier to
cover his tracks. On Tuesday night an
Indian woman, procuring water from
the North Thompson river, twenty miles
above Kamloops, saw a canoe slip by in
the darkness. Two posses were at once
set to watch the river.
Thursday night Donald Gordon and
Duncan McLean came upon the man
crouching in the brush. When covered
with their rifles and told that he was
under arrest, he handed over one revolver and said, "I have another gun."
He pulled this and fired point blank at
McLean at such close range that the
hair of the constable's head was singed,
and his face burned by the powder.
Gordon fired a bullet instantly and the
outlaw fell with a bullet through his
jugular vein.

King to Visit Canada.
It is semi-officially announced that
King Edward and Queen Alexandra will
pay a visit to the Canadian Dominion
next year, on the occasion of the third
centennial of the landing of Champlain
near the spot where is the city of
Quebec.
The British sovereign will travel, it is
expected, as far as Vancouver.
Coal from the Nicola Coal and Coke
Company's mine, says the B. C. Mining
Record, is being delivered to several
interior towns along the Canadian Pacific Railway. Although shipments are
not yet large, it is gratifying to find
that production on a commercial scale is
an accomplished fact. From a recent
visitor to the mine competent to express
an opinion of value, we have assurance
that the development work done in
opening the mine, and the designing
and installation of the surface plant,
have been well carried out, and that
everything about the property indicates
that the enterprise is thoroughly bona
fide and coal mining here gives abundant promise of eventually developing
into an important and profitable
industry.

A very happy event took place at the
residence of Mrs. John Smith, at
Spences Bridge on Thursday evening,
November 14th, when her daughter
Isabella was united in marriage to John
A. Clapperton.
The bride was given away by her brother, John Smith, and her sister, Miss
Tessie Smith, acted as bridesmaid. The
groom was supported by his brother
William, the Rev. D. K. Allan of
Nicola, performing the ceremony.
After the nuptial knot had been tied,
a large company of relatives and friends
sat down to a tasty supper provided by
the genial hostess.
The happy couple left on the mid-

showered with the best wishes of all
The young couple are well known in the
Nicola Valley, and their many friends
wish them every happiness.
Church Servlaes.
Evangelistic Services.
Asa Gordon, K.C., and Mrs. Gordon,
who have been engaged in evangelistic
services in Lower Nicola for the past
ten days, left on yesterday's train for
the coast.
The results of their work cannot be
tabulated, but there are not wanting
evidences of increased spiritual life,
and many have given themselves to
Christ.
The great privilege of working for
God in extending his kingdom was
clearly set forth, and the blessedness of
having the evidence of sins forgiven
were topics treated in such a manner as
to bring forth a hearty response from
many of the congregal ion.
This visit hu been a benediction to
the locality, and they will long be
remembered for their work of faith and
labor of love.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Japanese government is considering the advisability of shutting
off all emigration to the United
States and Canada for the present
on the ground that economic conditions render it inadvisable for
citizens of Japan to visit foreign
countries unless they are able to
show that they are amply self-
supporting.
The return made by the Registrar General for the year ending
December 31st, 1906 has just been
received. For the province the
total number of births was 2,470,
deaths 1778, and marriage 1587.
The Kamloops registration district,
which includes Clinton, Lillooet,
Yale and Cariboo is responsible for
321 births, an increase of 25 over
the preceding year; 153 marriages,
an increase of 32; 165 deaths, an
increase of 5.
develop and fill our land that it may
stand erect above the shadow of fear
from without or within. We cannot do
this if we fill our land with Japanese or
Chinese. The United States once imported a few negroes from Africa for
labor, and to-day they have about
twelve million���quite a nice bunch that
can never be got rid of.
Canada will be in the same boat in a
short time as the Japanese and Chinese
are a strong and aggresive race. The
race problem is bound even now to be a
perpetual one in the West, the future
depends upon the action taken at
once.

The propriety of having a day of
national thanksgiving and its observance by Anglican church was
discussed at length at the annual
deanery conference at Ottawa last
week. The discussion was provoked by the address of Rev. Canon
Mugleston of Perth, who said he
would have the whole institution
of national thanksgiving swept
away, as it served but to show the
thankfulness of the people as a
whole by their not going to church
and thanking God for His mercies.
If Thanksgiving Day could not be
observed better than it was, said
the speaker, it should be dropped
as an unholy thing.
Granby Closed Down.
In compliance with a wire received
from New York, the Granby smelter
closed down last Monday, and all of the
eight furnaces will be cleaned up and
banked, and not a hand will be stirring

for the complete close down.

The department of justice does
not regard as serious the contention of Mr. Justice Clement, of the
supreme court of British Columbia,
that there is a possibility of
divorces granted by the provincial
court since 1871 being declared
invalid. Although by the British
North American Act, marriage and
divorce were especially reserved for
the jurisdiction of the Dominion,
it was also expressly stipulated
that the provinces of Nova Scotia,
New Brunswick, Prince Edward
Island and British Columbia should
retain their divorce courts. Under
that agreement these four provinces
have been granting divorces ever
since they entered the Confederation.        	
CORRESPONDENCE.
JAPANESE EMIGRATION.
Editor, The Nicola Herald:-The 19th
century brought the race problem to
the United States, and the 20th century
will find Canada facing one.
Moreover, the question cannot remain
one of labor supply alone, such people
as the Japanese and Chinese will not be
content with labor only. There is so
many business openings of all kinds
that they will eagerly enter, and the
trade and commerce and manufacturing,
as well as labor of the West, will pass
into their hands if they are allowed to
swarm this great land of ours.
A man has a right to say who he will
invite as a dweller into a house he has
built. The people of Canada have a
right to say who they will invite to
share with them the domain which they
and their fathers have won from a wild
wilderness.
Our first and last need is men and
women of our own stock and ideas to
