Football Game and Smoker.
The fastest and most keenly contested
football game seen in the camp so far
was played at Diamond Vale last Saturday evening between the team at that
pistes and the Middlesboro eleven. The
game was practically devoid of rough-
new and the definition given to the
sport was most interesting to the large
number of spectators. The score was
one to nil in favor of the boys from the
Gully, but it was an even-money game
from start to finish. The refereeing of
John Ovington was impartial and gave
general satisfaction.
After the game Diamond Vale entertained their opponents and a large number of visitors at a smoking concert,

disposed of. ft$6nday evening by
Hall being committed for trial.
The case fifst came up on Friday, but adjournments were made
for the purpose of obtaining other
witnesses.
The testimony given on the side
of the defence was very contradictory at times, and Hall's efforts to
show that the .horse was lawfully
in his possession were shattered by
evidence submitted by the prosecution.. ��� ���     y
The past record of the accused
Indian is none^too enviable, and
the reputation he.hears in his own
neighborhood is not extremely
savory.
Hall was allowed out on bail, the
sum being fixed at $300.00.

the matter out of court.

held at Nelson on Friday, Smith Curtis,

the Martin government, was nominated.

G. O. Buchanan and F. J. Deane.
There was only one ballot, the figures
being eighty-six, thirty and twenty-two
respectively.
On motion of Deane the nomination
was made unanimous.
No Liquor Licenses.
The provincial government has decided to issue no liquor licenses to construction camps along the line of the G.
T. P. A great many applications for
the privilege of selling liquor have been
received, but all have been refused.
This is a policy which the government
intends to continue as long as unsettled
conditions attendant on construction
work prevail.
Forest Fires.
The forests of the coast region of British Columbia will be protected from
fire this summer in a more comprehensive manner than ever before, as more
wardens are being employed and their
jurisdiction is far more extended than in
the past.
Owing to the fact that some three or
four of the most destructive forest fires
experienced last season were the result

Payments on Properties Will Be Made

Market.���Sawmill Turning
Out Lumber.
Sales were completed this week
of 40,000 shares of Diamond Vale
coal stock at 25 cents, in two lots
of 20,000 each. Such activity shows
that the close watch on the company's operations in the Nicola Valley has resulted in satisfaction to
the purchasers. Steady progress is
being made at the mines where a
large number are employed.
News from the Nicola is that the
second drive of logs for the Diamond Vale's sawmill is being brought
down the Coldwater River this week
from the company's own limits.
The mill is operating at full capacity, and has many orders ahead.
It is expected that the townsite of
Diamond Vale, located close to the
mines, will be put on the market
shortly. The situation is an ideal
one, and in laying out the site for
the new town every point in the
improvement of cities has been a-
dopted.
The final payments on the Garcia,
and Charters properties, which were
purchased because of their coal
values, are due in July and December but the deeds are now being
prepared, and they will be taken up
shortly. No better indication of
the prosperity of the company could
be noted than that large payments
for purchase are made several
months in advance.���Daily News-

. EDITORIAL NOTES.
In view of the recent decision of
the education department to supply
���������all the public schools of the province (except high schools), free of
charge, with certain text books and
'school requisites, blank forms of
trustees' agreement and a requisition for free text, etc., are being sent
i around to those in charge of schools,
together with circulars enclosing
the list of books supplied and the
necessary application forms, and
directions for their use, so that upon the reassembling of school after
the holidays there will be no difficulty in providing the schools with
���the necessary material.
According to the annual report
<of the Department of Mines the output of the mines in British Columbia for the year 1907 exceeded that
of any previous as regards value.
The total was $25,882,560, an increase over 1906 of $902,014. But
for some interruptions due to labor
troubles and other causes, the production of minerals would have
been still larger than the amount
we have given. The increase over
the previous year resulted from a
large tonnage of low grade ores in
the Boundary Creek district, and
also from a greater production of
both coal and coke.
Some people are unable to understand why it is possible for an opposition in parliament to bring the
business of the country to a standstill by refusing Supply, and several persons have asked why the government cannot go on and pay its
bills and get an indemnifying act
later on. The reason is that the
granting of Supply is the one hold
which parliament has upon the
government, and if it could be got
rid of by any such expedient, a
dishonest ministry might become
despotic.
In response to a request received
from Earl Grey, governor-general,
the provincial Government has
agreed to donate the sum of $10,000
to the fund which is being raised
by the National Battlefields Commission for the perpetuation of the
Heights of Abraham and some land
adjoining as a national park.
A strong Conservative association has been formed at Prince Rupert. The future metropolis of, the
north is to be commended for thus
early in its career turning its face
towards those paths which lead to
good government and stability in
political conditions.
The aggregate value of Canadian
cheese and butter exports for 1907
was $20,186,398.
Great Britain buys nine-tenths
of Canada's natural product exports.
Life is short, and so are the
majority of men���financially speaking.
