ITEMS OF INTEREST
MRS. JOAN DUNSMCIR PASSES FRIDAY MORNING.
One Insurance Company of Fernie Refuse* to Pay.���Rev. John  Pringle
Strongly Vindicated by
the Presbytery.
The" death occured Friday morning at
her residence in Victoria of Mrs. Joan
Dunsmuir, widow of the late Robert
Dunsmuir and mother of Hon. James
Dunsmuir, Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia.
Of late the deceased lady has been in
the public eye on account of her suit
which she has instituted against her
son for a further share of the estate
left by the first owner of the Dunsmuir collieries. The statement of claim
had just been filed in the case, which
had not yet come to trial.
have been so conspicuously fruitful in
blessing that a new and remote city
like Dawson compares favorably today
for its observance of law and order
with many of the older cities of our
Dominion, and that this moral and social uplift has been achieved largely
through the self-denying and persistent
efforts of Rev. Dr. Pringle and other
faithful ministers and missionaries of
ouj church in the Yukon."
Rev. R. J. Wilson was appointed
moderator of the Presbytery for the
remainder of the year.

BD FOR NOVEMBER 14TH.
Refuse to Pay.
Most of the insurance companies
which sustained losses in the recent fire
at Fernie have already settled with
their policy holders and the others will
do so immediately. There is one company, however, the Law Union and
Crown Insurance company, which declines to admit any liability, on the
grounds that the loss was caused by
forest fires and that their policies contain a clause exempting them under:
such conditions. The company car-j
ned several risks in the city, and the
holders of the policies are indignant at
such action and are preparing to make
an organized effort to endeavor to recover their losses.���Greenwood Ledge.
HuntinR Number.
The eve of the big game hunting
season brings the ever welcome Fall
hunting number of Rod and Gun and
Motor Sports in Canada, published by
W. J. Taylor, Woodstock, Ont. This
year the budget of stories is more varied than ever and include, not only
moose and deer hunting, but also fox |
bear and wolves etc. A paper by John
Arthur Hope on ' 'The Red Deer or
Wapiti and the Virginian or Common
Red Deer of North America," will be
read with interest by every sportsman
whether he is a big game hunter or
a nature student. Fishermen, canoeists
campers, mountaineers and others will
find they are not forgotten, for although hunting has the pride of place,
which is quite in keeping with the
period of the year. The many sportsmen who are not big game hunter,
may depend upon a variety which
takes note of the fact that sportsmen
have many tastes and are not all absorbed in one pursuit. Those however
who are not big game hunters, may enjoy the many excellent stories dealing
with this fine sport which appear in
this capital number.
Dr. Pringle Vindicated.
The work of the Rev. John Pringle
on behalf moral reform in Yukon Territory was strongly vindicated by the
Westminster' Presbytery at a mesting
held at Eburne. The resolution was
moved by Rev. Dr. Peter Wright and
seconded by Rev. J. Knox Wright as
follows:
"Whereas Rev. Dr. John Pringle late
Presbyterian missionary in the Yukon,
has been fiercely assailed for his fearless exposure of social crimes in the
city of Dawson, therefore
"Resolved, (1) That this Presbytery
does hereby place on record its entire
confidence in Dr. Pringle's manly
christian character, and its unqualified
appreciation of his courageous.efforts
to elevate social life and promete civic
righteousness. (2) That this Presbytery records its gratitude to God for
the heroic spirit with which He has
inspired Dr. Pringle and many other
missionaries of our church in their
stern conflict with the forces of evil
in the newer parts of our land, and for
the mighty influence they have wielded
in the cause of civic, social and domestic purity, thus becoming a terror
to. evildoers while earning the grateful
praise of all good citizens; and (3)
This Presbytery rejoices in the well
attested fact that the earnest struggles
on behalf of social puritv and civic
righteousness in that far north land

NOTICE.

Every body we leg me.
J. H. and Mrs. Dimmick have started
suit for $19,000 damages against the
British Columbia Copper company of
Greenwood. This suit is the outcome
of a blasting accident which occured at
the company's Mother Lode mine situate in Deadwood camp, a few weeks
ago, whereby the plaintiff's little
daughter was killed and Mrs. Dimmick
severely injured. It is claimed that an
extra heavy blast was fired and several
pieces of rock crashed through the roof
of the Dimmick residence.
Runaway Accident.
M. L. Grimmett was in what might
have turned out to be a serious accident
on Friday last, at Coutlee. In hitching
up his horse, the bridle was put on, but
in some manner the bit was not in the
horses mouth. After he had got into
the rig, he found the horse to be unmanageable and it culmiuated in the
horse running away and throwing Mr.
Grimmett out, he landed on his shoulder
and sustained a dislocated shoulder and
a fractured ankle. He was removed to
Nicola on Saturnay arid is now on the
high road to recovery.
Mounted Infranty Company.
It is proposed to take steps to start
a Mounted Infantry Company in Nicola
Valley. Gentlemen in the district intending to join are requested to send in
their names to G. R. Bates of Aspen
Grove who is acting as secretary pro
tern. A meeting will be arranged
shortly and everyone interested in the
movement is requested to attend.
Mining Pays.
It may not be generally known, but
it is a fact nevertheless, that there are
many men who have been most successful in life and who have left their
impress upon its people, and its institutions, as statesmen, soldiers and financiers who have been directly or indirectly connected with the mining in-
dustry. While many have realized j
great fortunes from their operations
or from their investments in mines,
seldom is it that the fascination of
of mining leaves them. And why
should it, when today it is acknowledged the most profitable of all industries.
We speak advisadly on this question.
We have no reference at all to the
stock jobbing end of the business. One
has but th look over the dividend tables
published each week in the Mining
World, to realize that the purchase of
shares in well managed companies pays
much greater returns than any other
line.���Mining World.

In  The Hedley  Mining

"The Nickel Plate is easily the

examination of that section of the
Similkameen district. Mr. Camsell has
devoted two seasons to the Hedley
region.
His work was in connection with the

Merritt,   B.  C,   October [8, 1908.
There are thousands of voters in
Canada who have never allied
themselves with any political party,
that is, they have never tied themselves permanently to any party,
and tnere are thousands more in
both parties wne prefer the interests of Canada to the interests of
their party.
The question for them is, how
can they best make their influence
felt for the public good?
At present this influence is
greatly minimized by the fact that
they vote agaiuit each other.
All efforts at uniting this large
and intelligent class of electors by
Third Party organizations have
hitherto failed as witness the history of tne Patrons of Industry and
of the numerous parties now represented in the different legislatures.
The result of the independent
electorate voting effectively would
be to bring about in Canada the rotation of parties in office which
prevails in England.'
The elector who conscientously
believes that his own party is keeping faith with the country, respecting its principles and fulfilling its
pledges , is right to support his
party. The elector who regards
both parties as equally good or
equally bad can do much to improve
both parties by generally voting
against the government of the day,
if recreant to its professed principles, and so teaching the politicians of both sides that they are
the servants', not the masters of the
country.
In England, the electorate no
sooner places a party in office than
they begin to defeat it at th.e bye-
elections, on the principle that
men in power easily loose their
heads unless kept in awe of the
electors, and at the general elections the government is almost invariably defeated. Obviously this
rotation of parties is entirely the
work of the independent electors,
who hold the balance of power between the Liberals and Conservatives, and use it. It is only when
the government of the day is conspicuous for its courage, straightforwardness, patriotism and pro-
gressiveness that it is perpetuated
in power.
In any country where electors
are in the habit of bringing up governments with a sharp turn there is
a wideawake susceptibility and
sensitiveness to public opinion
which secures a robustness in
politics which makes entirely for
the public good.
On the other hand if a party
does wrong and is retnrned to
power through blind partisanship
the men who rule the party become
emboldened to dare more, and the
country is plunged into extravagance, because the schemer's having just come through an election,
realize how easy it is to hoodwink
the electors.
It is up to the independent voter
to take control and make that
change, if he does it will be a warning to both parties and will do
Canada immeasurable and enduring good.
The Dominion Government has
passed an order-in-couucil raising
to $50 the money qualifications
required by all emigrants entering
Canada from January 1st to February 15th. At present each immigrant must have $25 in his possession on landing. The Immigration office is doubling the
amount for the winter months to
check arrivals when work is not
plentiful.
The election in Kootenay has
been deferred and will take place
on Tuesday, November, 8, instead
of on October 26. John Keen returning officer for the constituency
announced nis decision in the matter at a conference in Nelson, at
which Smith Curtis as well as two
representatives each from the Liberal and Conservative executives
were present. The date was fixed
before the Conservatives arrived.
