Sweeping   Majorities   in   many
Constituency in the Province.
Results to hand to the time of
going to press lead us to believe
| that the country has given the
j Hon. Richard McBribe a sweeping majority. Never in the his-
I tory of Canada since Confederation, has a leader caught the
opposition party in such a disorganized state. This is the condition of the Liberal party not
only in the Okanagan but the
whole Province.
The result is not to be wondered at when we consider what
John Oliver had to offer us in
lieu of the Premier's railway
When Mr. McBribe decided to
go to the country on his railway
agreements he undoubtedly
caught the leader of the opposition napping.
Of course we all know thst
Mr. Oliver had only just reached
that eminent position owing to
Mr. McDonald having been raised to the bench, and perhaps this
may be advanced as some excuse
for his unpreparedness.
But the fact remains that
when the Government railway
policy was made public Mr.
Oliver acted like a drowning man
making a last grasp at the proverbial straw. Instead of getting a hustle on and promulgating a railway scheme of his own
he adopted that of the editor of
one of the Vancouver weeklies
without even troubling to make
a dicker with a single contractor
or railway company, and of
course, as was to be expected;
the result has spelt disaster.
All along the line Conservative
members have been returned
with a large majority. Victoria
has shown its faith in the
Premier by sending back four,
while the voters of Vancouver,
in spite of Duncan Ross, have
sent back Bowser and the other
four members of the "Tory solid
iive," just to show that they believe in McBride and a prosperous era. At New Westminster,
Gifford has been returned with a
majority of 267. Greenwood (a
C mservative gain) returned
Jackson with the very respectable majority of 57.
Coming nearer home it is very
apparent that the rivals of the
Hon. Price Ellison in the Okanagan and L. W. Shatford in the
Similkameen stand a good chance
of losing their deposit.
As regards the local option
plebiscite, the returns to hand
for the Okanagan show about an
e |ual number for and against,
and if the rest of the constituencies poll nearly as strong a
vote a local option law will un-
do lbtedly be placed on the statutes of the province.

Local Option Carries in Valley.
The last report on going to
press gives a large majority for
local option in the Okanagan
valley. Kelowna, Vernon, and
Peachland gave majorities a-
gainst the law, but Enderby,
Armstrong, Summerland, Naramata and Penticton all have substantial majorities in favor of the
measure. No complete return
has yet been received, but the
latest report says local option has
carried in the province.

British  Columbia   Apples   Win
Spokane, Wash. Nov. 23.-
Five boxes of the finest nothern
W apples on exhibit at the national apple show will be sent by
Canadian exhibitors at the show
to His Majesty King Edward
VII. through the board of trade
of Vernon, B. C, the apples being part of the prizewinning Vernon exhibit which attracted
much attention during the show-
Canadian growers also contributed a large part of a present of
21 boxes of different varieties
that will be sent to President
Taft. Those sending apples to
the President are F. G. Fun-
quier, Arrow Lake, B. C, box of
Baldwins; Vernon board of trade,
box of northern spies; Kelowi a
board of trade, box of Wagener.
The Vernon exhibits gave to
the ceildren in the care of Spokane's Associated Charities six
boxes of the best apples, while
the Salmon Arm, B. C. booth
gave the children some fine American roses.
H. C. Mallam, of Kelowna, B.
C, won the $100 prize for the
best display from outside the
United States, while the Salmon
Arm display was given second
in this class.
British Columbia growers beat
Montana apple-raisers in the contest for Mcintosh reds, Montana's
own variety, J. J. Campbell, of
Willow Point, winning a prize
offered by Missoula, Montana,
people. A. D. Lowe, of Vernon,
was second in the special contest
for four tier winter varieties.
Other late awards that went
to British Columbia were: H. W.
Collins, Carson, second best box
Wagoners; R. E. Harris, Kelowna, best box gclden russet;
William Cockle, Kaslo, second
best box golden russet; Coldstream ranch, Vernon, second
best box northern spies. The
Canadian exhibitors had no
trouble disposing of their apples
for local and eastern consumption.
Municipal Elections.
Householders and others who
are not property owners and wl o
have resided in the district for a
year should interview the Municipal Clerk and get their names
on the voters' list. This must
be done before the 1st of December. You have only four days
more, so get a move on.
Liberal Meeting.
Messrs. R. H. Rogers and A.
Bridgeman appeared here on
Monday evening to champion the
Liberal cause. E. W. Mutch president of the local Liberal Association occupied the chair and introducing the speakers apologized for the absence of Mr. Swan-
son who was billed to speak, but
who at the last minute had to go
to Kelowna.
Mr. Rogers during his half
hour's speech dwelt mainly on
the McBribe railway policy also
briefly touching on the resignations of Captain Tatlow and Mr.
Fulton respectively Ministers of
Finance and Lands in the late
Government, urging their resignation as a sign that the government railway policy was not a
sound one.
Mr. Bridgeman stated that the
Premier had only given the electors two weeks to decide a question that it had taken Mr. McBride himself two years to consider and in his opinion this wrs
very unfare.
Mr. Bridgeman also touched on
several defects in the Attorney
General's department drawing
attention some local grievances.
After the speakers had finished
the chairman called for the National Anthem and the fervour
with which it was sung showed
that the audience were not lacking in loyalty although possibly
divided in political matters.
Local and Personal
Those having friends visiting them
will confer a favor by acquainting tl e
Press with the fact. All other locil
news thankfully received.
There died on Monday evening,
Nov. 22, Hattie L., aged 33, the
beloved wife of W. J. Clement,
editor of our local paper. Probably never in the history of this
town has there been such universal mourning and widespread,
Jeep sympathy. The deceased
came to Penticton from Vancouver about eleven months ago as
a bride. During her eleven
months' stay she was supremely
happy in her home life, in the
Church and in the community.
She left behind her in Vancouver
the happiest surroundings, and
hosts of friends, and yet in her
life here she at once found her
place and the joy of living was
her lot. During her short stay
here, she found her way into the
hearts of many who now mourn
their loss. She had not passed
far on life's highway, but being
weary for a moment, lay down
to rest and fell into that dreamless sleep that knows no waking.
While yet in love with life and
raptured with its charms she
passed, her body into pathetic
dust, her soul unto Him who
cared for her from childhood's
earliest recollections. Just in
the happiest, sunniest hour of
all the voyage, when life was
new with hops and jewelled with
a new-born love in her sweet
babe, she passed into the golden
dawning of the grander day.
Her earliest thoughts were of the
Christ, and nearing the end she
gave expression of pure love and
faith in Him. Her last days
were brightened by the presence
of her sister, Miss M. Burritt,
who, in this time of storm, has
been brave and gentle.
The whole community extend
to Mr. Clement their deepest
sympathy. G. O. F.

annual sale in the church on
Wednesday, Dec. 8.
Mrs. Henry Huycke. sr., left
on Wednesday morning's boat
for Winnipeg to visit her sons.
She will be in Winnipeg some
three months.
C de B Green, arrived on
Tuesday's boat. Mr. Green has
been surveying Government
lands on Vancouver Island dui-
ing the past six months.
Quite a crowd of voters came
in on Wednesday's boat, among
whom were R. P. Brown, C. C.
Allen and Messrs. Reynolds
and Stoess, of Keremeos.
"Bengough" is good and it
does not cost much to see him.
Reserved 75 cents, rush seats 50

Thos. Guest and family arrived
from Vancouver on Wednesday's

The Anniversary of the Methodist Church will be held on Sunday and Monday, Dec. 12th and
13th. Rev. R.J. Mclntyre, of
Summerland, is expected to
preach the Anniversary sermons.
A very successful mass meeting on Local Option was held in
the Methodist church on Sunday
evening. Mr. John Orr president of the Local Option League
took the chair. Addresses were
given by Dr. Sawyer, Principal
of Okanagan College, and Revs.
Allen and Fallis,
The front row of chairs are reserved at 25c. for chHdren coming with parents who hold reserve seat tickets for the Bengough entertainment. Bring
the children.
The Legge-Willis Co. from
Kelowna produced "Dandy
Dick" in Steward's Hall on Saturday evening. The play and
players were deserving of a much
larger audience but while politics
and local option have such a hold
on the public mind, it is apparently impossible to get many to
turn out for theatricals.
A number of ladies met in tl.e
Council Chamber on Saturday
afternoon for the purpose of
forming a "Women's Institute"
in Penticton. This is the outcome
of Miss Laura Rose's lecture on
Domestic Science and Women's
Institutes given some two weeks
ago in Steward's Hall. After
some discussion the following
ladies were elected officers for
the ensuing year: President,
Mrs. F. H. Latimer; vice president, Mrs, R. A. Wyllie; secretary Miss Loomer; treasurer,

Bulbs and Fruit Trees.
Every one appreciates the
beauty of flowering bulbs in the
fall and winter, but so many fail
to prepare for the future in time.
It is very easy to have the house
full of bloom throughout the dull
season, and every lover of flowers
should appreciate this fact. Particular attention is drawn to this
matter in the advertising of M.
J. Henry which you will notice
in this paper. Detailed information about the culture of bulbs
can also be obtained from this
The matter of fruit trees also
claims our attention, not merely
at the actual planting seasons,
but at all seasons, with those
whose policy is to have only the
best. Those who purpose planting should remember that this
nursery is located right in British Columbia, that the culture is
conducted with reference to B.
C. conditions, and that naturally
the stock must be well adapted
to those conditions which prevail
in your orchard. For further information, which will be gladly
furnished, address M. J. Henry,

th** Editor of The Pbnticton Prk.hr:
Dear Sir :��� I would venture to
offer a few items of information
regarding mail service on the
hike that may be of benefit to
some people who mail letters
under the impression that our
mail service is in such a condition
as to ensure prompt delivery of
their mail.
If you have a letter for any
lake point, don't drop that letter
in   the  mail  box on the boat,
thinking that it will be taken out
for    delivery     at    destination.
That box is not opened until the
boat reaches Okanagan Landing.
There the letters are put on the
mail car, go to Sicamous, and re-,
turn the following day.    Again, I
if someone  up the lake should
drop a letter in that mail  box on
the boat, addressed to Penticton.
that letter will come to Penticton
all  right, but it will remain in
the box all night, go up to Sicamous next day and then return
to Penticton the following day.
If you expect a letter from up
the lake on a certain date and
don't receive it promptly, don't
worry over the matter as it will
be very likely to turn up in your
box all right after the next stage
arrives from the south, owing to
the fact that it had been indaver-
tantly   put   into   the   Princeton

He gave Iter a thoughtful look nnd

to get nway with anything of consequence after he became the administrator. He wouldn't have tried it probably unless he was more desperately

"But there's something I wnnt yon te

"What's that?"
"I want the old house put in ordef
I'm going to live there."
"Alone V"
"I'll! almost twenty-seven, and that's

"Yes. That's the difference."

"No, no." he said meditatively, "It
Isn't thnt. it's because everybody will
be In love with you."
"Quite everybody!" she asked.
"Certainly," he replied. "Anybody
who didn't would be absurd."
"Ah. Joe!" she laughed. "You always were the nicest boy lu the world,
my dear!"
At that he turned toward her with
a sudden movement, and his lips parted, but not to speak. She had rested
one nnn upon the desk and her cheefc
upou her hand: the pen she had picked up. still absently held in her rlu-
gers. touching her lips, and it was
given to him to know that he would
always keep that pen. though he would
never write with it agaiu. The soft
lamplight fell across the lower part
of her face, leaving her eyes, which
were lowered thoughtfully, in the
shadow of her hat. The room was
blotted out in darkness behind her.
Like tbe background of an antique
portrait, the office, with its dusty cor-
uers nnd shelves nnd hideous safe.
hnd vanished, leaving the charming
and thoughtful face revealed against
an even, spacious brownness. Only
Ariel and the roses and the lamp were
clear, nnd a strange, small pain moved from Joe's heart to his throat as be
thought that this ugly office, always
before so harsh and grim nnd lonely-
loneliest for him when It hnd beeu
most crowded���was now transfigured
into something very, very different
from nn office; that this place where
he sat. with a lamp and dowers on a
desk between him and a woman who
called bim "my dear" must be like���

Aud then he leaned across the desk
toward her as he said agaiu what he
bnd said a little while before, and his
voice trembled:
"Ariel, it in you?"
She looked at hlin and smiled.
"You'll be here always, won't yon?
You're uot going away from Canaan
again r*
For a moment It seemed that she
hud not heard him. Then her bright
glance at him wavered and fell. She
rose, turning slightly away from bim,
but uot so fur that he could not see
the sudden agitation in her face.
"Ah." he cried, rising, too, "1 don't
waut you to think I don't understand I
or that 1 meant I should ever ask you j
to slay  here!     1   couldn't  mean   that.

too.   But, oh.  my dear,  when you go,

She turned toward him, her face suffused with a rosy light.   "You'd rather
have died  than have said that to me
once,"   she   cried.    "I'm   glad   you're I
weak euough now to confess it!"
He sank down again into his chair,!
and his arms fell heavily on the desk. |
"Confess It!" he cried despairingly.
"And you don't deny that you're going
nway agaiu���so it's true! I wish I
hadn't realised it so soon. 1 think I'd
rather have tried to fojl myself about
it n little longer!" I
"Joe," she cried iu a voice of great
pain, "you mustn't feel like that! How
do you know I'm going away again?
Why should I waut the old house put

I went you know that 1 could never

"Yes," be said. "I do know how.   It j

"I've   shown    thai,"    she    returned

"Yes. Y'ou say 1 know how you've

"Isn't that a pretty good way, Joe:"
"Never fear tbat 1 don't understand!"
He got to his feet again and looked at
ber steadily.
"Thank you. Joe." She wiped sudden
tears from her eyes.
"Don't yon be sorry for me." he said.
"Do yon think thnt 'passing the love of
women' Isn't enough for me?"
"No," she answered humbly.
"I'll have people at work on the old

"I dou't want you to come with me. It
isn't very late, and this Is Canaan."
"I wnnt to come with you. however."
he snid. picking up his hat. "Y'ou can't
go alone."
"But you are so tired, you"���
She was interrupted. There were
muffled, flying footsteps on the stairs
and a shabby little mnn ran furtively
into the room, shut the door behind
him and set his back against It. His
face was mottled like a colored pup
thick lines of perspiration gblUillK
across the splotches.
"Joe." he panted. "I've got Nnshvlllp
good, and he's got me good too. I got
to clear out. He's Uxed me good, but
he won't trouble nobody"���
Joe was across the room like a fly
ing shadow.
"Quiet!" Ills voice rang like a shot,
nnd on the instant his hand fell sharp
ly across the speaker's mouth. "In
there. Happy!"
He threw au arm across the little
man's shoulders and swung him toward
the door of the other room.
Happy Fear looked up from beneath
the down bent brim of his black slouch
hat. His eyes followed an Imperious
gesture toward Ariel, gave her a brief
ghastly stare and stumbled into the In
ner chamber,
"Wait!" Joe said cavalierly to Ariel
He went In quickly after .Mr. Fear uud
closed the door
This was Joseph Louden, attorney at

i ne co>r o;- >r.e I. and me two men
came oul. loe wilh bis baud ou the
:'ber's ibotilder. The splotches had
g me i'i ii Ilappy's face, leaving it an
even, deathly white. He did not
glance toward Ariel He gazed far
beyond all tint was about him. and
suddenly she was aware of a great
tragedy. The little man's chin trembled, and he swallowed painfully.
Nevertheless he bore himself upright
and dauntlessly as the two walked
slowly to the door, like men talcing
part iu some fateful ceremony. Joe
stopped upon Ihe landing at the head
of the stairs, but Happy Fear went
ou. clumping heavily down the steps.
"It's all right, Happy," said Joe.
"It's belter for you to go alone. Don't
you worry. I'll see you through. It
will lie all right."
���Must as yon say. Joe," a breaking
voice came back from the foot of the
steps���"just as you say."
The lawyer turned from the landing
and went rapidly to the window betide
Ariel. Together they watched the
shabby little figure cross the street
below, and she felt an Infinite pathos
gathering about It us It paused for a
moment, hesitating, underneath the are
lump at the corner. They saw the
white face lifted ns Happy Fear gave
one lust look about him; then he set
Ills shoulders sturdily and steadfastl.v
entered the door of the jail.
Joe look a deep breath. "Now we'll
go." he snid.   "I must be quick."
���What wns il?" she asked tremulously as they reached the street. "Cau

"Nothing; jest an old story."
lie iiad nol offered her his arm, but
walked on hurriedly a pace ahead of
lier. though she came as rapidly as she
could, She put her hand rather timidly
on his sleeve, and without need of
more words from ber he understood
her Insistence.
"That was the husband of the wo
man who told you her story." he said
"Perhaps it would shock you less if 1
told you now than if you beard it te
morrow, as you will. He's just shot the
other man."
"Killed bim!" she gasped.
"Y'es." he answered. "He wanted to
run away, but I wouldn't let him. He
has iny word lhat I'll clear bim, nnd 1
made him give himself up."
WHEN Joe left Ariel at Judge
Pike's gate she lingered there,
her elbows upon  the uppermost crossbar, like a  village

Here about Ariel as she stood at the
rate of the I'ike mansion the houses

whose doors are never closed, but are

There 111 that desolate refuge lay
Happy Fear, surrendered sturdily by
himself at Joe's word. The picture of
the little man wns clear and fresh In
Ariel's eyes. and. though she had seen
tattii when he was newly come from a
'bine; so terrible that she could not re
li/e it as a fact, she felt only nn over
whelming pity for him. she was uot
eveu horror stricken, though she had
shuddered. The pathos of the shabby
little figure crossing the street toward
ihe lighted doors had touched her
Something about him had appealed to
ler. f>r he had not seemed wicked. Ills
"in- was not cruel, though it was deS

���epl C>r his old time friendship for

nnd absurdest loyalty!���that made the
lirst trouble between him and the
man be shot.    I've got to clear him."
"Will ii be bard?"
"Tbey may make it so. I can ouly
see part of It surely. When his wife
left (he office sbe met Cory on the
street. You saw what a pitiful kind
of tool she wus. irresponsible and help
less and feather brained. There are
thousands of women like tbat every
where some of them are "court beau

things up. but they are most danger
pus when they're like Claudine, because then they live among men of
action like Cory and Fear. Cory was
artful. He spent the day about town
telling people that he had always Ilk
.si Happy: that his ill feeling of yes
terday was all gone. He wanted to
Und him and shake his hand, bury past
troubles nud be friends. I think he
told Claudine the same thing when
Ihey Diet nud convinced the tiny brain-
let of his sincerity. Cory was a man
who 'had a way with him,' and I can
see Claudine flattered at tbe Idea of
being peacemaker between 'two such
nice gen'tlemeu ns Mr. Cory and Mr
Fear.' Her commonest nsseveratlon-
quite genuine, too���Is that she doesn't
like to bave the gen'lemen making
trouble about her. So the poor Imbecile led hbn to where her husband
wns waiting. All tbat Happy knew of
this was in her cry afterward. He
was sitting alone, when .Cory threw
open the door and said. 'I've got yon
this time. Happy!' His pistol was
raised, but never fired. He waited too
long, meaning to establish his case of
'pelf defense.' uud Fear Is the quickest man I know. Cory fell just inside
the door. Claudine stumbled upon
him us she came running alter hlin.
crying out to her husband that she
���never meant no trouble;' that Cory
bud sworn to ber tbat he ouly wanted
to shake hands and make up.' Other
people heard the shot and broke into
tlie room, but they did uot try to stop
Fear. He warned them off aud walked *��ut .without hindrance and came
to me.   I've got to clear bim."
Ariel knew what he meant. She realized the actual thing as It was and,
though possessed by a strange feeling
that it must all be mediaeval uud uot
possibly of today, understood that be

from being killed; that tlie unhappy
creature who bad run Iuto the office
oul of the dark stood in high danger of
having his neck broken unless Joe
could help him. He made It clear to
her lhat the state would kill Happy it
It could; that it would be a point of
pride with certain deliberate men holding office to lake the life of lhe little
jnan: lhat If (hjjy did secure his .death
It would be set down to their efficiency
and was even competent us campaign
material. "1 wish to point out," Joe
had heard a candidate for re-election
vehemently orate, "that Irt addition to
the other successful convictions I havo
named I am) my assistants have
achieved Ihe sending of three men to
tbe gallows during my term of office!"
"1 can't tell yet." said Joe at parting.
"It may be hard. I'm so sorry you saw
all this   I"-
"Oh. no!" she cried. "1 want to understand!"
She wns still there at the gate, her
elbows resting upon the crossbar when
a loug time after Joe had gone there

back yard the minor ehordings of a

2000 trees and they are all Stone & Wellington, ar.d
.ve are so well pleased with their trees that we
have ordered 2000 more for this fall delivery. It
has always been our belief thut it was better to
:>lant out trees from a more severe climate than
��ur own, and last winter's experience has prreally
trenjrthened that belief. Not one inch of wood
��� as damaged last winter in the trees we had out
it that time.
We have only about 60 trees that are bearing
and they are only 4 years planted, but they are all
true to name. We have never had any fear but
that Stone & Wellington would be above suspicion
>r we would not plant their trees to the extent we
are doing.
Why not plant Canadian-grown stock?
Guaranteed true to name and healthy.

Rev. J. H. Magee, field secretary of the Temperance and Mor
al Reform Bureau of the Metho
dist Church of the Dominion o:
���   Canada, delivered a very force
i'ul and very rational address ori
local option, what it is, and how
.   it works,  on Tuesday evening.
Steward's hall was fairly wel
filled and a marked enthusiasn
���': was    noticed    throughout    thi
Mr. Ma^ee began his address
-��� by giving a graphic descriptor
���:f: of just what the liquor business
'.'is and does.    It was the old wa\
-of appealing to franchise holder,
Vbut along with the old metho
werefounl many new illustra
'lions.   These illustrations wen
.not old or stale, but most of then
wera drawn from real persona
experiences in Owen Sound, Col
ling wood and Toronto Junction
Mr.  Magee's illustrations wen
more than ordinarily forceful be
cause he drew them from town
and cities where he has  livei
while    they   were    under   tht
license system and when, by th*
vote of the people,  they came
under local option.
He gave many reasons wh.
Jocal option should be carried ii
every municipality. He believe,
most strongly that local optioi
should be carried in every com
munity because of the new lift
itcreatcd in dozens of homes.
He cited case after case from hi
own personal experience, i,
which lhe home life had becomi
comparatively ideal, where before, misery and want were al
their, .doors.
���Probably the strongest appea'
in filyor of the measure was
upon an economic basis. Ht
pointed out that in every towr
whef��f; local option carried, invariably business grew. In man,\
places, where business men whi
had opposed it on business prin
ciplosat the first vote, after foui
years' trial had championed ii
solely on business principles
The Mayor of Toronto Junction
gave up his seat as chief execu
live of.lhe town because, he said,
when local option had carried,
'This town will go bankrupt."
But at. the end of four yean
business had been almost doubled
and the.'ex-mayor was found in
the ranks of those who strongly
advocated local option. The
speaker gave'several instances
of the changed economic conditions in Collingwood. Business
men almost defeated the measure
at its first vote, but after four
years 100. out of 110 business
men (outside hotel - keepers)
voted in favor of the measure.
He drew many illustrations that
had come to him from railroad
man, shi-p builders, dredge workers, manufacturers, and particularly retail fnen; who declared
the .best economic conditions prevailed under local option law. ,,,     ...

satisfactory, as almost every
own and municipality where
local option has been in force
ind where the people have had a
���hance to repeal, a fraction of
me per cent, only had repealed.
'Indeed," said the speaker, "the
aw has gone into operation again

jossible, because it is workable
ind satisfactory."
