Worst Snow Storm of tho Season.
Heavy Northern Gale Blowing. Temperature Away
Below Zero.
A Winnipeg despatch says:
The worst snow storm of the
season, driven by a hard northern gale, has the prairie provinces in its grip, and all week
meteorologists are inclined to
connect this remarkable disturbance with the earthquake at
the other  side  of the   world.     The annual meeting of the Nicola
Low temperatures are working j Valley Conservative Association will be
u-M-n the west, 30 below being
recced at Edmonton, with

Traffic is much delayed and
street cars are being operated
with difficulty. Brandon reports that traffic is dislocated.
At Moose Jaw one of the
worst blizzards in years has
been raging for the past eighteen hours. The storm is moderating, but the mercury is 17
below.    All trains are late.
At Portage la Prarie a real
old-fashioned blizzard is prevailing and business is practi
cally suspended. Many clerks
were unable to reach work. No
trains are in yet. It is the
worst storm in years.

ten below during the past week.
The result of the Merritt Hockey

Cariboo Shooting Affray.
A serious shooting affray, the
outcome of a drunken controversy,
occurred at Quesuelafew days ago,
in which a man named Robert Walker, narrowly escaped losing his
life. It appears that James Seymour, the man who did the shooting, had been accused by Walker
of stealing the sum of $15 which
he missed from his person; an
argument followed, during which
blows were exchanged, until Seymour, becoming infuriated, fired at
Walker with a shotgun. Luckily
the light was poor, and the charge
passed across Walker's body, tearing his clothes, but with the exception of a severe flesh wound, doing
little harm. Seymour was placed
under arrest, but allowed out on
$500 bonds.
For Honor of the White Race.
J. J. Corbett, former Heavyweight
Champion pugilist, announced his willingness to meet Jack Johnson, if it
were necessary to bring the championship back to a white man. "My stage
career," he said, "is the only thing
which prevents me from taking up the
gage. It makes my blood boil to think
that a dlack man should hold the title���
a man who has not shown himself a
great fighter. Johnson is simply not in
the championship class. Jeffries was
very foolish in not accepting that
$50,000 offered, win, lose or draw, because I think he is even now more than
a match for the victor of the Burns
fight. If necessary, I will challenge
Johnson in order to endeavor to return
the championship to the white race."
Herald Delayed.
Owing to the extreme cold
weather during the past week,
the presses of the Nicola Herald have been tied up and  on
I this account this issue has been
i
delayed. During the coming
week we expect to have matters so arranged that there v/ill
be no delay in the publication,
and all orders now in for job
printing will be delivered at
the earliest possible date.

Fifty Missing.
The fatalities in the Lick branch mine
as the result of an explosion will probably reach fifty. Twelve bodies have
so far been taken out.
According to a mine foreman, there
are 38 men in the mine, with little
chance of their recovery alive. The
cause of the explosion is unknown.
Lick Branch is the name of a coal
mine in operation on the Poccahontas
division of the Norfolk & Western Ry.
in West Virginia. It is without commercial telegraph facilities.
It is practically settled that fifty miners were at work in the mine when the
explosion occured and that there yet
remain thirty-eight in the death pit.
The rescue work is very slow. The
damage to the mine is reported to be
great.
Orange Lodge.
J. W. Whiteley of Vancouver, Provincial Organizer of
the Loyal Orange Association,
came to town on Wednesday
for the purpose of organizing a
lodge in Merritt. On Thursday a public meeting was held
in Hyland's Hall when Mr.
Whiteley delivered an address
on 'The Principles of the Orange Association and the ne-
cissity for its existance in the
Dominion of Canada." At the
close of the meeting, Mr.
Whiteley was successful in
writing up 14 applications for
membership, and 6 old members deposited their certificates.
The lodge was then organized
with a membership of 20. On
Friday evening another meeting was held when three more
members were taken in. The
lodge will be known as Merritt
Loyal Orange Lodge.
Following is a list of the
officers elected for the ensuing
year :
OFFICERS :
W. M.: Phillip McLean.
D. M.: Wesley Jones.
Chap.: H. W, Nash.
Rec. Secy.: J. F. Hyland.

Mr. Whiteley left on Saturday's train for Vancouver, and
before leaving he received the
hearty thanks of the members
for his valuable services in organizing the lodge in such a
successful manner.
More Than One Half of the World's
Copper Consumption  is used
in Small Factories
and Shops.
Questioned as to the effect of the
prospective rise in the price of copper on the electrical engineering
business, the president of a corporation which is a considerable consumer of that metal said to a representative of the Wall Street Summary:
"We do not worry about the
price of copper. Of course it is
going higher. In my opinion it
will be 18 cents a pound in February. More than one-half of the
world's copper consumption is in
small factories and shops. The
little foundries of our country and
Europe use twice as much copper,
in the aggregate, as is worked up
by the great engineering corporations. It is the little fellows that
pay the high prices. My corporation did not buy any copper to
speak of when it got above 20 cents
a pound. We bought largely at 16
cents to 18 cents, and after that we
depended upon copper mines owned
by directors in our corporation.
"As trade is going, we are able
to supply all the copper consumed
by our electrical factories from our
own copper mines. One of our
copper mines is doing so well in
production that we are doubling
our smelter capacity. In 6 months
this smelter will turn out copper at
the rate of 2,000,000 pounds a
month. The metal costs us about
10 cents a pound loaded on the
cars at the smelter for a 3,500 mile
haul to tide-water."

may  be regarded as certain  that
this would not be the case were it
not realised that Canada and things
Canadian are destined to exercise
a growing and most important influence   on   the   destinies   of  the
whole Empire.    The work which
has been done by the statesmen of
both  the Federal  and Provincial ���
administrations in the Dominion,
during the last ten or twelve years,
is now beginning to yield substantial results, and the year which has
just commenced is likely to give
more  abundant proofs of this than
even the most sanguine of us may
have anticipated
ot mreeuiiy n.	
uels and of making the conditions
under which it is carried on fair to
the British people in place of the
unfair restrictions imposed ou it by
foreign competitors.    In this controversy   views  of  Canadians  are
much  more prominent in British
circles than those  held  in  ot^er
parts of the Empire,  and the Dominion seems likely to lead the way
in   the   movements   designed   to
bring about a great development of
inter-Imperial trade.���News-Ad.

Th* Dlaastwr In Italy.
Onee again tb�� eiyiliaad world is
startled and horriflad by oim of thoie
appalling cataa^ophw which occur periodically, carrying death and destruction with them and plunging whole nations into mourning.
The catacylsm that has overwhelmed
Sicily and southern Italy���on�� of tha
most, beautiful of the lovely regions of
the Mediterranean, is one of the worst
that has yat been the lot of the human
race to experience. The death roll is
stupendous; in the twinkling of an eye,
tans of thousands of human beings
were deprived of life and those who
escaped sudden death are now homeless,
finding shelter where they can, and
starvation and disease threaten them.
But the cry from Italy for aid will
not pass unheeded. Already relief is
being despatched to the sufferers, in
money and in kind and is this good and
noble work all nations will cheerfully
bear a part. Canada will not fail to do
its share and the people of this province,
who have in times past, as on the occasion of the San Francisco disaster, given quickly and 'abundantly, will assuredly once mor* hasten to extend
that practical sympathy now so much
demanded.
The coat worn by sir Isaac Brock at
the battle of Queenston Heights is to
be sent to Canada through Lord Strathcona.   It will be transmitted to Ottawa.
