METHODISTS MEET
METHODIST CONFERENCE HELD AT
VANCOUVER
Was Successful In Every Way.���Great
Progress Being Made In  Every
Branch    of    the    Various
Departments.
Vancouver city was chosen as the
place of meeting for the B. C. Methodist conference this year. Rev. T. H.
Wright returned from attending the
sessions and reports the conference as
the largest in the history of British Columbia Methodism.
Every branch of church work is in a
flourishing condition, and numerically
and financially great advances have been
made.
The church is alive to its opportunities and it is grappling with all the problems of modern society and in solving
those various questions that have so
long been misunderstood by many inside and outside of the church.
Rev. Dr. Chown, secretary of temperance, social and moral reform will publish a pamphlet setting forth the result
of his investigations in this important
department of church work.
It was decided to celebrate the Jubilee of Methodism in the province by
raising one hundred thousand dollars
for educational purposes.
The Young People's societies throughout the province support a missionary,
and will support an additional one this
year.
Rev. Dr. Carman, general superintendent of the church* was in attendance and presided at most of the sessions and preached the ordination sermon.
Rev. Dr. Sutherland, secretary of
the foreign department gave several interesting addresses, and at the missionary service he and mayor Bell, of En-
derby, presented a bird's eye view of
the work done by the church.
ttev. John Robson, B.A., of Nanaimo,
was elected president of the conference
and Rev. A. E. Roberts, of Victoria,
was re-elected secretary.
Rev. T. H. Wright was elected journal secretary of the conference and financial secretary of the Kamloops district.
Mr. Wright gave an interesting account of the conference proceedings
at Sunday evening's meeting in the

Everybody and His Best Oirl Were On
Deck and Enjoyed a Delightful
Day of Sport and Amusement.���Horse Racing
and Athletics.
The first celebration at Merritt, held on Victoria Day, was
a decided success, and the committees in charge of the ar
rangements left nothing undone
to give.the crowds of visitors a
good day of sport.
The weather was good and
continued so during the whole
day.
During the morning the
athletic events were disposed
of and were keenly contested,
while the afternoon was devoted to the horse racing program.    .
The dance held in the spacious pavilion was an unqualified
success. A large number of
ladies graced the hall and
dancing was kept up with great
spirit until 3 a. m Supper
was served at midnight. Music was furnished by the Collett orchestra, with Er. Jones
at the piano.
The ladies' aid of the Presbyterian church, who supplied

class shape, and will have over
$350 towards their church
building in Merritt as a consequence.

TERRIBLE SUFFERING IN AFRICA
FROM FAMINE.
The Goodwin Brand Working Case at
the Vernon Assizes Last Week.���
G. McOalla Gets Ten Tears
For Manslaughter.
A despatch from Mobasa, British Africa, tells of the appaling
state of affairs prevailing in the famine stricken portions of the
country.
It is estimated that more than
forty thousand deaths have occurred as the result of famine prevailing throughout the province of
Uganda.
The government is feeding fifty
thousand natives.
Crops are a failure and much
suffering is anticipated during the
next few months.
Goodwin  Case.
At the Vernon Assizes the case
of Rex vs. Goodwin, was the first
to be tried. The charge was that
of working brands on twenty-five
head of colts belonging to the
Douglas Lake company.
Hon. W. J. Bowser appeared for
the crown and A. D. Mclntyre for
the defence.
After a large number of witnesses had testified, the case was given
to the jury about nine o'clock in
the evening and at midnight they
returned to state that it was impossible to agree, so the panel was
discharged.
Two more true bills against the
accused are yet to be tried.
Mr. and Mrs. James Corbett were
visitors to town today.

McOalla Sent Down.
Ten years in the penitentiary was
the sentence meted out to George
McCalla at Vernon last week, he
being found guilty of manslaughter
in the killing of Joseph Ethier at
the Victoria hotel, Vernon, a few
months ago.
The trouble arose over Ethier
abusing the condemned man with
bad language and foul names in
the bar-room of the hotel. The
former was considerably under the
influence of liquor, and the evidence
went to show that while in that
condition he was a most exasperating man and it was hard to subdue
him.
McCalla resented the verbal attacks of Ethier, but the latter persisted and the men had high words
until those standing around feared
serious trouble and endeavored to
get the two separated. They were
however unsuccessful in their
efforts.
Things reached a ciimax when
McCalla drew a gun and fired two
shots. One bullet entered the barroom ceiling, while the other struck.

caused fatal results. THE   NICOLA HERALD

EDITORIAL NOTES.
It is now declared authoritatively
that the Dominion elections will be
sprung next October, and soon the
nimble candidate will be frisking
around with the glad grip and
something on the hip.
The Ontario District Methodist
convention has adopted a resolution praying the government to prohibit liquor in summer encampments. Until this is done the resolution urges Methodists not to permit their sons to enlist.
During the coming summer the
Department of L,ands and Works
will take elaborate measures for the
protection of forests from fire. The
staff of deputy wardens, which
numbered twenty-three last summer, will be greatly increased.
Duncan Ross made a bad break
when he rushed into the breach to
defend Aylesworth's iniquitous election bill, a measure which would
make it possible for partisan appointees of the government to deprive citizens of British Columbia
of their franchise rights. If, as
Mr. Ross says, British Columbia
' 'provincial voters' lists are rotten''
what excuse will he give for failing
to point this out when he stumped
the provincial ridings in Yale Cariboo against the McBride government who were responsible for the
lists ?--Hedley Gazette.
It is not much wonder that Martin Burrell has won the confidence
and the esteem of the people of his
immediate home as well as those
of the whole district of Yale-Cariboo, for, whenever he speaks and
acts, no matter in what capacity, he
does so in such a way as to impress
his sterling qualities and striking
personality upon his audience. To
do this a man must have behind his
public utterances a reserve strength
and an inbred knowledge of his capacity, as well as an unshaken faith
in himself, in his cause, and in his
fellows.
These are the qualities that
strike one as most prominent in
Mr. Burrell's make-up.���Walker's

5000 Facts About Canada.
The 1908 edition is out of that most
useful and valuable booklet, "5000 Facts
About Canada," compiled by Frank
Yeigh of Toronto, who is widely known
throughout the Dominion as an authority on things Canadian. Nearly 25,000
copies were sold of the 1907 edition, the
demand coming from everv part of this
continent and the British empire. The
idea worked out, that of a concrete fact
in a sentence, is an excellent one, the
data being arranged under such self-
indexing titles as area, agriculture,
banking, commerce, finances, mining,
railways, wheat fields, etc. The wealth
of material contained in small space is
a revelation to even a well informed
Canadian of the standing and resources
of the country. The book is published
at 25 cents a copy by The Canadian
Facts Publishing Co., 667 Spadina Av-
enne, Toronto, Canada, or may be had
from newsdealers.
