studies and the guidance of
their esteemed teacher, Mrs
C. G. Starrett, who has been
at this school for the past five
years, and who is now resigning. At the close of the proceedings a farewell address (on
behalf of the children of the
school) was read by Freddie
Mclnnes to Mrs. Starrett, also
presenting her with a few neat
articles of silverware, as a mark
of esteem.
With a short address by H.

of good wishes by all present,
the meeting was brought to a

Imperial  Government    Has  Renewed
Over-Seas  Mail    Contract With
the  O.  P.   R. ��� Premature
Blast at Panama.
Thomas Taylor, member for
Revelsloke, was sworn in Tuesday morning as minister of
public works and assumed office at once. The writ for the
bye election in his constituency
has been issued, but it is not
probable that there will be a
contest.
The appointment of Hon.
Mr. Taylor was finally decided
upon at a meeting of the cabinet held on Monday. Hon.
Mr. Taylor is one of the sUong
men of the Conservative party
in the interior and he has in
the past greatly aided in the
building up of the efficient organization the party now possesses. He w:'s for several
years the party^whip in British
Columbia.
Nickle Plate To Shut Down.
A water shortage within a month will
make a shutdown at the Nickle Plate
mine at Hedley, B. C, a necessity, for
a period of five months or more. This
is the property of the Daly estate, the
biggest gold mine in British Columbia,
and the backbone of the Similkameen.
It is estimated that the net production
this year has been approximately $450,-
000, and since its discovery only a few
years ago, the mine has paid profits
amounting to almost $2,000,000.
THE DIAMOND VALE
REORGANIZATION   SUCCESSFULLY
EFFECTED BY T. J. SMITH.
Confiscates Without Notice.
The new law in Saskatchewan gives
the government power to confiscate
settlers' land when they are one year in
arrears for taxes without notifying the
interested parties. This has caused a
sensation at Winnipeg and a meeting of
bankers and loan managers was held
and the result may be the withdrawal
of all loans in Saskatchewan.
Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Palmer, of
Stump Lake, spent a couple of days in
Kamloops last week.
Miss Clark arrived Tuesday from the
east and will remain with her brother
Robert Clark at Nicola.
Mr. and Mrs. J. Bates returned to
Aspen Grove yesterday from their extended honeymoon trip.
Dan Munro has received the contract
from the Merritt Athletic Club to build
a skating rink near the Brewery.
On Saturday, Nov. 21st, R.
J. Armstrong, the widely-
known and old-time resident of
the Simileameen valley, just
across the line in British Col
umbia, and Miss Gertrude
Shobe of Gashere, Indiana,
were married at Oroville. The
marriage was much of a surprise to Mr. Armstrongs
frinds, who had no suspicion of
the happy event. The groom
qas resided in this vicinity
many years, and has a wide
circle of friends on both sides
of the international line. The
bride is a very attractive, intelligent and charming young
lady.���Palmer Mountain Prospector.
Overseas Mail Restored.
Cabled advises from England
state that the imperial government
has renewed the overseas mail service with the C.P.R. for the sum
of ^45,000 per annum and has
agreed to allow a longer period for
transportation, namely thirty-five
and a half instead of thirty-four
days between Liverpool and Hongkong.
As a consequence of the conclusion of this new agreement it is
expected that the C.P.R. will at an
early date re-establish the overseas
mail transcontinental express service which was dropped when the
former contract expired.
According to the terms of the
contract, dated October 12th, between the post-master general and
the Canadian Pacific Railway company the agreement is for three
years, and expires on April 6th,
1911.
President's Salary Doubled.
Senator Bourne introduced a bill last
Thursday providing for an increase in
the salary of the President of the United States from $50,000 to $100,000 and
the salary of the vice-president from
$12,000 to $25,000. The bill is intended
to take effect at the beginning of the
next administration.
Hish-Priced Seats.

Australia on December 26th are being
offered for $50, $25, $15, $10, $5 and

Boxer Killed in Bout.
James Curran, 18 years old, was killed

17 years old, at Philadelphia on Friday.
Barnet knocked Curran down with a
hard blow on the chin. After arising
Curran collapsed and died on the way to
the hospital. The police arrested Bar-

gerty, who acted as seconds to Carran.
Barnet's seconds fled.
Old Company Transferred and is now
Known  as  The  Diamond
Vale Collieries
Limited.
Mr. T. J. Smith has returned
from a trip East, during which he
succeeded in transferring the property of the Diamond Vale Coal
Company to a new company to be
styled the Diamond Vale Collieries,
Ltd. The price realised was $400,-
000, of which $150,000 was in cash

a debenture issue of $200,000. The

Burned His Wealth.
A special despatch from St. Petersburg to the Daily Mail at London relates that a dying Moscow millionaire
named Petroff had his whole fortune
withdrawn from the banks. The banknotes were brought to the sick room.
They were then piled before him and
set on fire. Petroff's relatives were
summoned, and he showed them the
ashes, congratulating them on having
escaped from the evils of wealth.
Dynamite Explosion.
A giant blast of dynamite, already prepared for firing, was premature exploded in the workings
at Basobispo on the Panama Canal,
Saturday. Eleven men were killed
and fifty injured. It may be that
others have been killed, for the
debris is piled up in all directions.
Basobispo is about thirty miles
from Colon, and the shock of the
explosion was distinctly felt there.
Constable Fitzgerald of Lytton was at Nicola this week
and arrestatl a man named McDonald who isw anted at Winnipeg.

Merritt, B.C., December 25, 1908.
Every part of the district should
make an effort to be represented in
the B. C. mineral exnibit at the
Alaska-Yukon-Pacific- Exhibition.
Small pocket specimens are no
good and will not be taken. Chunks
of ore containing about a cubic
foot are the specimens sought for.
This is what Mr. Brock says and
the man he is sending to make the
selection from specimens offered
will no doubt observe this distinction, and choose accordingly.
The vacancy on the railway commission and the portfolio of mines
are two plums that are kept dangling before the eyes of sundry politicians. Regarding the railway
commissionership the public is not
much concerned, but now that the
political fight is over there seems
to be a pretty general wish that
Mr. L,aurier should retain Templeman as Minister of Mines.
