A Three Team League to be Formed to
Play For Haddad Cup,  Between
Merritt,   Middlesboro  and
Nicola Olubs
The lemon was handed to Merritt's hockey team at Nicola last
Friday afternoon, when the Hot
Tamale team, playing under the
auspices of the Nicola Atnletic association, won the Haddad trophy,
by a score of 5 to 1.
A large crowd witnessed the
game, many people from Merritt
and district making the journey
to the foot of the lake, r.nticipating
an exciting but friendly contest.
From the standpoint of true sport,
however, the game was not all that
it should have been, and a good
many of the spectators of both
towns were disappoint edj if not
disgusted, at seme of the uncalled-
for tactics practiced by certain
members of the Hot Tamale team
in their over-zealous endeavor to
win the game���and the money they
had so freely put up.
Munn, the crack Kamloops puck
manipulator, smuggled in the day
of the game, helped the Nicola end
considerably.
At odd times the play looked like
the real thing. In combination
and "scrimmage" work the locals
showed more class than their opponents, but in defence they were
very weak while the Tamales were
strong. Neil's, work at point was
ineffective and his feet seemed to
be frozen to a goal post several
times when the Nicola centre advanced with the puck.
Both teams showed that they
have excellent material, and with
some of the objectioaable features
cut out that were in evidence Friday, should put up a very close and
interesting exhibition.
After the game the visiting team
was royally dined at the Driard hotel by A. Wt Strickland, president
of the N. A. A.
Following was the line-up.

Death of Irene Collett
A sad event occurred this (Friday)
afternoon at five o'clock, when the angel
of death entered the home of Mr. and
Mrs. John Collett, claiming the spirit of
their only daughter, Irene, aged eight
years and twenty clays.
Irene was subject to asthma, and it was
during a sudden and severe attack of this
disease that she succumbed. Death,
however, was most unexpected, as up to
last night "Polly" was in the best of
health and spirits. She was a bright and
witty child, away beyond her years in intelligence and habits, and an infliction
has come into the family which time can
never erase.
Great sympathy is expressed by the
entire community for the bereaved family. The funeral will take place at 2.30
Sunday afternoon, the remains to be interred on the ranch.
Speaks on the Problem of Asiatic Immigration and "Better Terms."���
Light May be Thrown on
Bill Miner's Escape.
"The resources of B. C."
formed the subject on which
Martin Burrell, M.P. for Yale-
Cariboo, gave an interesting
talk to members of the Canadian club last Monday at Montreal. Mr. Burrell jocularly
touched on the "encyclofpfla
���f ignorance'' which prevails in
. "ne quarters regarding Bn-
ti h Columbia, and then went
ot. to describe the commercial
value of the Pacific waters
which washed British Columbia
and the islands. Concluding,
fcir. Burrell dealt with what he
called destinctively B. C. questions.
First, there were difficulties
of settling a country with such
extraordinary geographical con
ditions. These conditions called for "better terms" from the
dominion government, a necessity which everybody acknowledged who had any knowledge
of the province. Then there
was the problem of Asiatic immigration. In this regard he
believed the preservation of
the social and industrial life of
Canadian children, and their
children's children, depended
upon the wisdom with which
this problem was dealt. He
believed the views of the west
on this question were sound
and personally he emphatically
endorsed Rudyard Kipling's
sentiments, that they must
choose between their own kith
and kin  and

Orange Grand Lodge.
The right worshipful grand Orange
lodge of British Columbia is to hold
its  annual  meeting  in   Victoria  this
year on the 15th,  16th and  17th   of
the   undesirable!tne montn>   when about 100 delegates
.,i:������ ������ ..  j ���    i ���      ��� ,' wi'l attend.   The sessions will be held
alien separated in his a.ms and L the a.O.u.w. hail.  On the nth
instincts  from   them   by   thou-  there will be a public meeting at which
sands of vears addresses will be given by prominent
*     *  " members and the aims and objects of
the society explained. On the following day the annual banquet will be held
in the A.O.U.W. hall.
That the order is a flourishing one
is shown by the fact that during the
past year between 500 and 600 members have been added to the ranks.
There are no less than 58 lodges in
British Columbia, of which thirteen
are in Vancouver and two in Victoria.
The oldest lodge is in New Westminster, having been organized in 1863, the
warrant having been signed by J. Hil-
yard Cameron. Victoria has the second
oldest lodge. That one was organized
in 1872 by Julius Brethour and the warrant was signed by Mackenzie Bowell.
Bert Robinson will be the delegate to
represent the Merritt Lodge, and will
leave on Saturday's train.
Piqued because a recent despatch
from Ottawa intimates that discipline
in the Britidh Columbia Penitentiary
was not perfect during his tenure of
office, B. L. Bourke, ex-Deputy Warden and for months virtually warden,
has written to the press, intimating
that unless justice is done him he will
"open up a new field for moral reformers by telling the world the truth about
the escape of Bill Miner and his three
convict companions, "who la vented from
the British Columbia penal institution
in August, 1907. Mr. Bourke states
that the disclosures he may make public
would be sensational and far-reaching.
Satisfactory Reports  Presented  to  a
Large Gathering of Shareholders.
Collieries at Middlesboro
in Splendid Shape.
The annual meeting of the Nicola
Valley Coal & Coke Company, held
Tuesday afternoon at the O'Brien
hall, Vancourer was attended by a
large number of the shareholders.
Mr. John Hendry, the president,
taking the chair. The reports of
directorate and the financial statement were received with cordial
approval and adopted. Th^se
showed that the collieries were "ow
in splendid shape to do busi -*96
and that the business was there to
be done so that a profitable year
might be anticipated. Mr. C. D.
Rand, ex-president of the Vancouver Stock Exchange, who ari<-
nounced himself as a small stockholder, said that before investing
hea had not only taken advantage of
the opportunity offered last spring
to visit the mines, but had continued his investigations in the office
in Vancouver. He had been amply-
satisfied of the sound position of
the company and was of the opinion
that the shareholders had a very
good property, everything in connection with which was in splendid
shape. He was sure that if the directors applied to the Stock Exchange to have their stock listed
the proposal would be accepted, as
the company would have no difficulty in complying with the very
comprehensive demands of the exchange for satisfactory evidence ��f
its financial fitness.. Mr. Rand
dwelt at some length on the advantages of listing and the matter was
very fully discussed, a resolution
being finally adopted leaving it to
the directors to list the stock when
they deemed the time had arrived
for taking that step.
The retiring directors were all
re-elected unanimously and a valuable addition was made to the
board in Mr. Alexander Maclareu,
a member of the great lumbering
firm who, it was announced, had
recently become a heavy investor
in the company. A hearty vote of
thanks to the directors terminated
the proceedings.
Longboat Wins Marathon,
Fred Shrubb, the crack English runner, fell down in the twenty-fifth mile of
the big Matathon race at New York last

Tom Longboat's famous steady stride

the start, sprinted away from his Indian
opponent for several laps.
The betting was started at seven to
two in favor of Shrubb.
Shrubb and Longboat will meet in
Buffalo next Monday, having accepted
the offer of a $7500 purse for a 15 mile
race.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
About the time Grover Cleveland
stepped out of the White House
after his second term as president
of the United States, he was asked
his views concerning the future of
the country and what he considered the most important issue at
stake. Mr. Cleveland replied to
the effect that the most serious
problem to be dealt with would be
that of the race question. He predicted serious trouble from a clash
between the whites and the blacks.
The past few years have clearly
shown that the ex-president's prophesy was well founded. The race
question has been a seething undercurrent in the south for years, and
the outrageous outbreaks during
the past two or three years tend to
prove that the worst is yet to come.
Recent despatches show us that the
trouble is not confined to the south
alone, but seems to be gradually
spreading northward. The happenings in Pittsburg during the past
few weeks is ample evidence of
this. White women are unsafe in
various sections of the steel city ;
both whites and blacks are carrying
firearms and other weapons. About
200 negroes have been arrested and
many of them sentenced to terms
in prison. Several lynchings were
narrowly averted by officers of the
law. Verily, settlement of the color problem in the United States
seems to be farther off than ever.
Carrie Nation, who is hatchet
juggling in London, has been kept
busy dodging over-ripe eggs and
sour fruit at the hands of impolite
Cockneys. She was also fined 30s
for merely poking her umbrella
through a window containing a
cigarette sign. Come home to your
Uncle Sam, dear Carrie, where you
will be more appreciated and your
rake-off will be fatter.
The Dominion government has
appropriated $75,000 for a building
at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific exposition at Seattle. Canada will have
an attractive exhibit worthy of our
resources, and practically everything will be there that was shown
by the government at the Dublin
exposition last year. The collection of a special exhibit of British
Columbia minerals has already been
started.
other provinces as regards industrial wealth. As to climatic conditions and picturesqueness of scenery the province on the Pacific has
always been the frosting on the
cake.
A great congress of women suffragettes is to be held in London
during the last week in April.
Delegates will come from 21 shires,
who will speak in all languages and
all speak at once most of the time,
so a highly interesting session may
be anticipated. It is suggested that
these female fanatics have their hair
clipped and wear rubber suits, so
that the police will not have such a
difficult task in disentangling them
when they come to a clinch in trying to elect officers.
According to the New York
Times, Great Britain is about to be
invaded by a foreign army and the
old country is greatly stirred up in
consequence. When high-society
scandals and other sensational news
are scarce, the big war scare is always to be found on the ' 'live hook"
of the American dailies.
Vancouver's population is growing more rapidly than that of any
other city in Canada; her clearinghouse reports also show a greater
percentage of increase. And the
Terminal City is the pulse that
demonstrates the vitality of the
remainder of the province.
At Lethbridge the white and the

That British Columbia is more

confidence of the capitalistic world
is shown conclusively from the fact
that investors are constantly making inquiries for particulars concerning the mineral, timber and
other resources of the province.

How to Cook Frozen Potatoes
During the recent cold snap many
residents had their vegetables frozen,
on acccint of having no proper place to
keep thein. In view of this the following method, if adopted in cooking frozen potatoes, will result in the tubers being placed on the table without any
trace of having been frozen:
Have a pot of boiling water in the
range, then drop the potatoes in one at
a time, allowing the water to again
come to a boil after each one has been
placed in the pot. They may be left in
this water unril thoroughly cooked and
then have the jackets removed; or again
you may let the potatoes remain in the
boiling water for say ten minutes, then
remove and peel, replacing them in
fresh water to be cooked. Do not wash
potatoes before placing in pot.
Frozen potatoes baked in a hot oven
show no sign of having been frozen
when cooked.
Frozen apples are even more delicious
if thoroughly baked after being frozen
solid.
A New Same
An article is going the rounds of the
press about a new game that has cropped up. It is called "Tickle the Publisher" and is as follows:
Take an ordinary sheet of writing paper, fold it nicely, enclose a bank note
sufficiently large enough to pay all arrears and one year in advance and give
it to the editor; keep an eye on him and
if a smile adorns his face the trick works
fine.
Now is the time to play the joke, It
beats "Bridge," "Slough" and "Pit"
all hollow.   Do it now!

Mining In British Columbia
The Daily Mining Record, of Denver,
has the following editorial in a recent
issue:
' 'British Columbia, according to its
recently compiled figures, has produced
all told the sum of $323,000,000 in mineral wealth, beginning with its earliest
placer discoveries and continuing to the
end of 1908.
"British Columbia, we must bear in
mind, is a comparatively new field, and
has progressed purely on the value of
its mineral deposits, never having had
the boom spirit that has been shown in
so many American camps. The province
is growing and the time will come when
its annual output is far in excess of
what it is today.
"Of all foreign lands, British Columbia has more in common with the United
States than any of the rest of them.
The miners who work in the properties
in the camps of that province, are largely American miners, and there is a continuous change from those regions to
the mineral regions of the States. The
problems of British Columbia, apart
from min ng, are also very similar to
the riddles our own Pacific coast has to
solve���particularly when it comes to the
exclusion of foreign labor���the oriental
type of labor, admitted to be demoralizing to any section and impossible to
mining camps.
"In copper, the province is becoming
more and more important, with plenty
of capital awaiting the opportunity to
find activity in the mines and in the reduction works���and the world market
looking towards conditions in the much-
demanded red metal'as outlined largely
in North America.
"The province is also becoming a factor in yellow metal production, and
while some of the British possessions
far outclass it in output,, the sum contributed by the camps of British Columbia is of consequence.
"It is noted that nothing in common
appears between the district of Cobalt
and the camps of the coast province,
while very mueh in common exists between our western districts and those
across the border, north of Washington.
Our interest, therefore, in the northern
camps is always fresh, and we believe
the progress of mining in British Co-:
lumbia will materially assist operations
in our own northern sections."
Crafty Thief Oonfi
B. R. Reid, who was arrested in Seattle last month on the charge of stealing gold from his employer, R.T. Barn-
ette, owner of the Dome Creek mine
near Fairbanks, Alaska, confessed hie
guilt and said:
' 'I gathered the gold and sand in handful s out of the riffles, hid it in my handkerchief, or gloves or boots, carried it
home and washed it out. My cleaniugs
were from 60 cents to $400 a day. Al*
together I must have cleaned up $1800
worth of stolen. I have spent it all except the $800 you dug up in my front
yard.
"What I have taken from Barnette's
mine is not a drop in the bucket compared with the stealings that have been
going on in the Tanana district and even
going on now. I know one man who
has $30,000 worth of stolen gold salted
down. There are six 'planters' working Barnette's Dome creek mine this
very minute, and a regularly organized
bunch of mine laborers in Alaska who
hava shaken down the mine owners for
a very tidy sum.
"I commenced to do this last summer
and had only about sixty days of good
stealing."
After Reed had agreed to testify
against other gold thieves when taken
back to Alaska, he was released on
parole.
Wanted a Warmer Place
A Chinaman was hanged in Macleod,
Alta.,last month for the murder of his
brother. The mercury was pretty low,
somewhere between 60 and b5 below
zero when the Chink was put on the
trap. Before the trap was sprung the
usual question was asked, "Have you
anything to say." To this the Chinaman is said to have replied: "Hurry up,
gee Cli, too cold," and with this he was
jerked into eternity.
Crime Is Revealed.
Provincial Constable Joseph Burr of
Ashcroft was in Kamloops on Monday,
bringing with him an Indian, Basil,
who is charged with murder. The crime
was committed on the Fraser river, five
miles north of Dog Creek and the victim was an aged Chinaman, Sah Tu.
The Oriental was supposed to have
money and this, it was thought, furnished the motive.
Suspicion pointed to two young Indians, Ernest Louie and Basil, and they
were arrested a few days ago. They
confessed and the story they told the
constable was that they called the
Chinaman to the door of hi<* cabin and
then shot him. After gaining access to
the house, a few minutes later, they
found Sah Tu lying on a lounge and to
make doubly certain that he was dead
they shot him again. They then secured what money he had and after
locking the door of the cabin, escaped.
Louie was placed in jail at Clinton,
but escaped and after placing Basil
safely in the local jail, Constable Burr
returned to search for the other murderer.���Kamloops Standard.
Death of an Old Pioneer.
We regret to announce the death of
Mr. Thomas McDougall which occurred
at Clinton on Thursday, January 28th.
The deceased had, been ailing for some
time past but the end came somewhat
suddenly. Mr. McDougall was born at
Cornwall, Ont., in May, 1836 and forty-
six years ago came into British Columbia and mined in Cariboo. He was a
born explorer and. pioneer and made
several trips into the Omineca and
Peace River districts.
Mr. McDougall had resided at Clinton
for the past fifteen years and is survived by five sons and one daughter who
deeply mourn the loss of a good father.

Some Merritt ladies were talking of
forming a hockey team, but when a
bunch of them had a try-out on the ice
the other evening they carefully sized
up the situation and unanimously decided to wait four or five years before
taking any further steps in the matter.
Jack McMillan, who had charge of
the diamond drill for the Diamond Vale
company in their first workings in the
valley, was a Merritt visitor a few days
last week. He left for Princeton to get
a diamond drill at that place for removal to the coast. Mr. McMillan was accompanied by Mr. Wescott, who was
also employed at the Diamond Vale a
couple of years ago.
