SCHOOL ELECTIONS
EXCITING  MEETING  TO  CHOOSE A
NEW TRUSTEE BOARD.
H. 8. Cleasby. W. Williams and J. A.
Menzle Successful Candidates-
Question of Site For Sohool
Building Discussed.
The special meeting of the
ratepayers and householders of
Merritt school district, held in
Hyland hall Tuesday afternoon
probably had the largest attendance of any school meeting
ever held in the valley. The
school district was recently
gazetted and it was necessary
to have a new election of trustees, to hold office until next
July, when the annual meeting
takes place. This is the third
school election for this section
in less than a year. The lo
cation of the school site was
the question that brought out
the people, Middlesboro residents wanting the school building on their side of the bridge
over the Coldwater river and
Merritt residents wanting it on
this side.
The election resulted in H.
S. Cleasby, W. Williams and J.
A. Menzies as the trustees for
the term. The number of
votes polled were 166, but it
is doubtful if all were qualified
voters, fully halt being challenged and taking the oath.
The difference, of opinion of
the meaning of the act as to
what constituted a " householder" were many, and by the
time voting commenced it had
become very elastic. The poll
opened at 1130 and closed at 5
p. m., and during that time a
steady stream of voters we��*e
brought to the poll.
After the counting of the
ballotts and the result announced, A. Faulds moved a vote of
thanks to the chairman and
secretary and the meeting adjourned until Tuesday evening
December 1st at 7:30 o'clock.
At the meeting Tuesday
evening it is understood that
the trustees will submit two
sites to the meeting, Voght
having offered to donate an
acre lot for school purposes
near the bridge over the
Coldwater river.
The following are the candidates and votes cast for each:
H. S. Cleasby Ill
W. Williams 102
J. A. Menzies  88
John Collett  62
R. W. W. Reid  59
Alex. Faulds  49
Pioneer Passes Away.
On Tuesday night, after a brief ill
ness, John Peterson passed quietly away
at his residence, Seymour Street, Kamloops, aged 83 years. The funeral took
place on Tuesday, the pioneer society
having charge of the arrangements, the
following members acting as pall bearers: W. Fortune, J. R. Hull, G. C.
Tunstall, J. O'Brien, J. Mellor and J.
Ratchford. Rev. W. A. Wyllie conducted the services. The attendance was
very large, showing the esteem in which
deceased was held. A niece, Miss
N. Peterson, and a nephew, John Peterson, are the sole surviving relatives.
The late John Peterson was the earliest permanent settler of what is now
the city of Kamloops. Mr. Peterson
was born in the city of Rotterdam,
Holland, in the year 1825.
Canada to be Represented.
The government of Canada will construct a building at the Alaska-Yukon-
Pacific exposition to be held in Seattle,
June 1 to Octoder 16, 1909, inclusive,
covering a ground space of 300x150 feet.
Mr. and Mrs. J. Stewart of Nicola
were in Merritt today.
Geo. Murray, government agent at
Nicola, and Miss C. Murray were Visiting in Merritt today.
Mrs. R. H.  Winny returned to
Nicola from Kamloops this  week.
Rev. J. Thompson of Nicola has

Bates-Hlnshaw.
The marriage took place at Nicola on Wednesday eyening at the
Methodist parsonage of John E.
Bate and Mrs. J. Hinshaw, Rev.
O. M. Sanford performing the
ceremony. The contracting parties are well known throughout the
district both holding large mining
and land interests the Aspen Grove
section. The newly married couple
left on Thursdays train for Seattle
on their honeymoon trip.
Fruit Shipments.
The warehouse of the Coldstream
estate has been a very busy place
during the past conple of months,
and regular daily shipments of
fruit have been despatched to the
four corners of the earth. Up till
October 31st last,'some 60 carloads
of fruit have been shipped. At
560 to the carload this would be
some 33,600 boxes.
Try, Try, Try Again.
A despatch from San Antonio,
Texas, says: "if the party so demands, and conditions arise to
warrant it, I will be candidate for
the presidency four years hence,''
said William J. Bryan, as lie started on a duck hunt Tuesday.
UPRISING IN INDIA
NATIVES   BENT   ON    OVERTHROWING BRITISH CONTROL.
Investigation  Among  Hindoo  ''Reds'
Disclose the Bxlstance of a Far
Reaching Organization   of
Hundreds Natives.
A London despatch says: The seriousness of the Indian uprising has caused
the government to take vigorous action
in the affected districts. The war office
Tuesday ordered a substantial military
reinforcement to proceed immediately
from Aldershot to the scene of the impending revolt, it being represented to
the authorities that the local officials in
India were unable to cope with the situation and were sorely in need of
troops.
Word reached the foreign office Tuesday that Lord Minto, viceroy of India,
had called a conference of the council
of India at Bikanir to consider plans
for the suppression of sedition and to
discuss the proposed law to replace the
present one which is lame in dealing
summary punishment to mutineers and
anarchists. Reports of extended police
investigations among the Hindoo "reds"
disclose the existence of a far reaching
organization numbering hundreds of
thousands of natives, bent on overthrowing British control, murdering Lord
Minto and Lord Kitchener and seizing
the machinery of government to place
it in the hands of the revolutionery society.
Government assurances that the higher class natives are out of sympathy
with the movement are known to be
baseless. The best educated and highest caste Hindoos are known to be the
real organizers of the anti-English conspiracy, and several of the richestt. and',
most powerful native princes are among
those most strongly suspected.
King Edward's birthday address to-
India a few weeks ago has evidently
been passed over by the conspirators,
either as too vague in its promises, as
untrustworthy or as pledging less than
the minimum which the natives are
willing to accept. It has in any event
been wholly without effect in allaying
discontent.
English officials and business men are
less fearful of Great Britain's inability
to hold the colony than of the ruinous
expense of a prolonged struggle with
the Hindoos.
'      Hindoo Objects.
The Hindoos will have nothing
to do with the proposition to transport them to British Honduras.
This was the decision reached at
a mass meeting held in the Hindoo
temple at Vancouver this week following an impressive religious service which lasted four hour. Formal resolutions protesting against
the proposed step were adopted.
They will be transmitted to. Ottawa, London and to. the. Viceroy;
of India. ���

An exchange says: Small men
with small purposes do not make
a community lively and progressive. The man who never contributes to public enterprise or voluntarily assists and public enterprises
is not worth coaxing to remain in
a town, and should he decide to
move it is always a matter of congratulation. It is units and not
mere cyphers that count for something.    Be a unit!
Indian Lands  in Court
A test case which promises to end
the deadlock now existing between the
Dominion and Provincial government
over the question of "revisionary interests" in Indian Reserves, is now before
the Vancouver courts.
This is the stated case which the
Provincial government, through Hon.
W. J. Bowser, attorney-general, has
prepared for final decision by the
courts. Until the final decision of the
Privy Council as to the respective
rights of the Provincial and Dominion
authorities, including the reversionary
interest after the Indians have sold or
abandoned the land, all questions relating to them, are held in abeyance.
The stated case goes back thirty-three
years to 1875, when proposals between
the provincial and Federal authorities
for the settlement of this ancient dispute were made.
Thus at last it appears that we are
within measurable distance of the day
when some of these vacant stretches of
country���consisting in many cases of
the most fertile and valuable in the
province���will be open to settlement by
white men.
Final returns from Prince Edward
Island show sixteen Liberals and fourteen Conservatives elected, or a majority of one for the government exclusive of the speaker.

Game Back.
Rosecrans W. Pillsbury, of New
Hampshire, who has been defeated
twice for the Republican nomination for
Governor, turned up at his office
bright and early on the morning after
his second rejection by the party convention, and told his friends the following story:
A man was once walking along the
street when a door flew open and a
man came bumping down the steps to
the sidewalk, Picking him up the
pedestrian asked what was the matter.
"That's my club in there," said the
projectile, "it's a political club; there
are nine Jones men and I'm for Smith.
They threw me out. But don't worry
I'mgoing in and clean 'em all out. You
stand here and count 'em."
In he went and sure enough, in a
minute the door burst open and a figure
cleared the steps without touching.
"One!" said the spectator, holding
up an index.
"Hold on!" cried the prostrate one;
"don't begin to count yet. This is only
me again!"
Canadian Buffalo Herd.
The last of the Pablo buffalo herd is
now being rounded up in Montana for
shipment to Buffalo Park, on the Battle River, Alberta. This will give Canada over six hundred buffalo living in
the natural state, forming by far the
largest herd on this continent. All told,
in small and large herds, and in wood
buffalo in the north, Canada will have
over one thousand head of bison.
