The Minister of Finance and agriculture has received a cablegram stating
that the British Columbia fruit exhibi.
has been awarded the gold medal at
Edinburgh, which is the first city where
it has been shown.
This is very gratifying news, and the
award means very much for the province. The idea of sending such an exhibit was an excellent one, and showed
that the provincial government is keenly
alive to promote thewjlfardof the province in every possible way. The exhiit
is not a mere sample, but is a comm r
cial exhibit. It is a demonstration of
practical value, not simply theoretical.
Railway Accident Invaatlgatlon
The coroner's jury sitting at Kamloops with Dr. Burris on the invesi-
igation of the collision at Tranquille
sat Thursday.
From the evidence as adduced it appears that the first section of No 16
had orders to meat No. 97 at the point
where the accident occurred. The conductor sent out his nrakesman to dag j
the second section, whi.h was incharg
of Conductor Aconley, with Engineer
Hosker at the throttle.
The latter in giving his evidence says
that he saw no one flagging him, and
heard no torpedoes. He had no copyoi
the orders, so, thinking that the road
was clear to Kamloops, he kept, n alter
whistling for Tranquille station. Th
road is very crooked west of the -idii g
and when he saw the tail lights of the
first section he had no time to jump,
but after putting on the emergency
brakes h l was compelled to stick to hi
cab. He swears positively that he was
not flagged or warned in any way.
Brakeman Crowe, on the other hand
stys that he was back of the first section a distance of at least twelve telegraph poles, but that the second section
was coming to fast to stop.
The jury returned the following ver-
dict:-
We, your jurors empannelled to inquire into the death of J. A. Rowe find
that he came to his death from injuries
rece v d in a rear-end colision between
the first and second sectionsof train No.
9 i on the Canadian Pacific Railway at
Tnnquille on the morning of November
13th. 1906.
We also find that the accident was
caused by the misinterpretation of the
ruin by the rear-end brakeman of the
Ant section of No. 96trai.i.

The action is brought for a recision

It is alleged that the plaintiffs purchased the  Golden Sovereign group of

Number of piople on tbe
Old Orounds.
In a little glass phial four inches long
Charles F. Law is showing at Vancouver eight ounces of platinum worth only
$200, which came from the mouth of
B ar Creek. The stuff is found in
black sand and runs almost an ounce to
the pound of sand. Complete separation with present mechanical means is
impossible, but a new machine which
accomplishes this has recently been invented. Only the larger particles, such
as Mr. Law showed the reporter, can
now be separated. Even this contains
10 per cent iron and 10 per cent osmir-
ium- iridium. The latter is a very valuable mineral, used in the manufacture
of mantels and for tipping gold pens,
being very hard and nonerosible. Platinum itself is now w irth $32 an  ounce.
In the old days of th_��� Granite Creek
excitement, 21 vears ago, its market
value was about $4, but as the miners
of those days did not know it had any
value, and it was difficult to separate
from the gold, being almost equal to It
in specific gravity it was contemptuously
I cast aside,
After the gold washers disappeared
the Nicola Indians and Chinese for years
would scrape up the earth about the deserted cabins, and, while a good deal of
platinum was recovered, the greater
part was lost. It is estimated that the
output saved and wasted of Granite and
Bear Creeks in those days must have
been worth at present day prices several million dollars.
Recently a new bar of black sand
rich in platinum ha been discovered.
As much as 200 ounces has been cleared
up in a single afternoon on one bar,
while within the last six weeks Chinaman cleaned up $1,600. An incipient
rush to the field is already on, and claims
are being staked on liear Creek and
Granite Creek.

Publio Meeting
A public meeting of the citizens
of Nicola has been called by the
chairman and secretary of the last
public meeting, and will be held tomorrow, Friday, in Pooley's hall at 6
o'clock, to receive the report of the delegation appointed to interview the government regarding the construction of
a new bridge.
will be held in Pooley's hall on Friday

useful articles upon which the ladies

of sweets and the "cup that cheers"
may supply themselves with a goodly
quantity.
The ball on St. Andrews night, in
Pooley's hall, under the auspices of the
Nicola Athletic Association will be well
attended from all parts of the district.
Tickets are for sale at different places
throughout the Valley and are meeting
with a ready sale. The committee are

Jim Hill as a Literary Critic.
James J. Hill, railroad magnate, is to
turn a literary critic. Recently Mr.
Hill offered a prize of $8,000 to be divided among the farmers writing tht
best essays on farming subjects. Each
contestant had to own at leart 20 head
of stock and 20 sheep or swine. The
essays have been written and put into
21 prize classes, Prof. Thos. Shaw and
Prof. Hooverstad reviewing them and
fixing the value on each. Mr. Hill, however has requested that the prizes be
not finally awarded until he can perust
the essays himself. He wants to see if
he thinks the same of the merits of
each essay as the expert authorities.
Bridge Across Nicola River
Enterrpising citizens of Nicola during
the past week, cleared a roadway through Walter Clark's property from Front
street to the river, and also constructed
a bridge across the river near the China
stores. This new roadway and bridge
is a short cut to the railway and will be
a great convenience and saving to the
whole community.
Quilchena Mines.
W. McNeil left today for Quilchena
with two men and will do some development work on the Tillicum mineral
claim, situated on the hill behind Quilchena. Mr. McNeil located the ground
some time ago and since then has had
the rock tested with the result that the
claim is to be opened up. The surface
indications are very good and from assays the rock carries gold, silver and
copper. The Tillicum is situated in an
ideal spot for working and shipping
purposes. Interested with Mr. McNeil
in the property are Barclay Bonthorne
and J. G. McLean.

is not aware that any recommend

sent out that Dr. Fagan had decided on a site on Kamloops lake

at that place. No adverse reports
