Wedding Bells.
There took place on Wednesday
last in Mount Pleasant Methodist
church, Vancouver, a double
wedding, one half of which is of
particular interest to the people
of Penticton; for in this ceremony they see one more of their
bachelors stepping over the line
to join the order of the benedicts. On Wednesday morning
at half past ten o'clock, Miss
Hattie Lonsdale Burritt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Burritt of Mt. Pleasant, Vancouver,
was married to Mr. William
James Clement, editor of the
Press, Rev. Mr. Hetherington
officiating. The Press staff extend their congratulations to
the newly wedded couple and
wish them joy and prosperity
in their married life.
Earthquake Shocks at the Coast.
Considerable excitement was
caused on Monday last at some
of the coast cities by a couple of
earthquake shocks. Vancouver,
Victoria, Nanaimo in B. C. and
Tacoma, Bellingham and Everett
in Washington all report the
shocks as having been felt in
their vicinity. All these reports,
stating that the shock lasted
about 20 seconds give the assurance that no extensive damage
ras done. Dishes shaken from
shelves, cement sidewalks
tracked, evidences of a small
tidal wave in some parts, all go
to stamp the shock as of the
genuine earthquake kind. The
cable connecting Seattle and
Sitka has been put out of commission and gives grounds for
apprehension that the shock has
done greater damage in the cities
in Alaska and the northern district.
The Ice Harvest.
The old adage "Make hay
while the sun shines" can be
translated in the winter time to
"Get your ice up while the
weather is cold;" and many of
oir people during the last week
or so have been living up to this
principle. Men and teams have
been busy transferring the icy
blocks from the water to the
sawdust. We understand that
the ice is in excellent condition,
in some cases being 16 to 18
inches in thickness.
Steel Ordered for V.

According to word received,
steel has been ordered for the
extension of the line of the V., V.

Princeton, both for main line and
sidings. Delivery will be made
early in the spring, so that this
new branch in the Similkameen
country may be ready for operation early in the coming summer.

The subject of the debate was,

The affirmative was taken by
Messrs. Mutch, Canning and
MeCormack, and the negative by
Messrs. Gahan, Evans and Miller, the judges giving their decision in favor of the negative.
The critic's report was given by
Rev. Mr. Hibbert.

debate which has been held this
winter. The debaters were all
in good trim, self-contained and
expressive. If we keep our
"Lit." up to this standard there
will be abundance of benefit derived both by speakers and audience. The subject for debate
next week is, "Resolved that a

The  Weather.
The recent cold snap has provided a convenient subject oi
conversation. The first thing in
the morning is to inquire the temperature of the night before. All
the towns around have been interested in this question. However, owing no doubt to the competition which exists more or less
between tlie various towns, there
is a temptation to exaggeration
and misrepresentation which
some cannot resist; and for the
time being that good old virtue
called fair play���which is the
Britisher's boast���is by some
completely lost sight of. The
following extract is taken from
a letter which this week came to
this office, written by a responsible party in Peachland. Listen!
"Things are cold here. We have
had it 22 degrees below zero and
a gentleman on the boat says
Penticton is the coldest place on
t'.ie lake so I guess it has been
!��2 or more, lie says yen people
there would not acknowledge it,
bat all outsiders know it." We
are aware that the above extract
was taken from the letter of a
single individual who quoted the
remarks of another single individual; and yet it is an easy
i natter for a report, whether
true or misrepresentative, to
spread from the individual to
the mass.
In considering the question of
the severity of the weather relative to the various towns in this
part of the country, it gives us
considerable pride and satisfaction to be able to say that Pentic-
t >n is the warmest, not the coldest, town on the lake and we will
even extend the comparison beyond the Okanagan to the Similkameen Valley. In support of
this statement we quote from
the various local papers their
own references to the cold register :-
Summerland (Prairie Valley) -16
Kelowna -12
Vernon (by wire) -35
Peachland -22
Hedley -25
Nickle Plate Mine -37;
Olalla -20
Princeton -45
and some of  the   above   towns
have experienced a greater mer-!
curial drop since tlie record:;, as
quoted, were given.
We turn with relief to the
records as given at the Government Station at Penticton, und
find that the lowest point reached
by the mercury was 10 degrees
below zero which occurred on
the nights of the 7th and 11th !
inst. So, comparatively, we're
not so badly off; and in spite of
what "outsiders know," or don't
know, we'll continue to remain
comfortable and cosy in our
little town at the south end of
the lake.
It is a matter of surprise and
regret to many that such a number of our citizens are not eligible lo run for office in the
Council about to be elected.
There are many who hold their
lecds but have neglected to have
them registered, as required in
the qualifications for candidat-
are. We know that there are
rood men available and they will
probably be brought out; but the
fact remains that another large
lumber is not available. In succeeding years, when the voter's
list is made up on the basis of
assessments, we will have a
larger list of strong men from
| which to select our candidates.
Of course the big subject of
| conversation for the past week
I has been the municipal election
i which is impending; and pros-
! p active voters may be seen wending their way to the court house
11 talk over the matter of eligibility for voting with the Returning Officer.   There seems to be,
however,  considerable   haziness
oi fhe part of some as to who
are eligible for voting.    Perhaps
! a good deal   of   that vagueness
! would be removed if the mystified one would glance at the pub-
j lie notice issued in the Press of
1 last week wherein the necessary
: qualifications are specified. There
is one clause,   however,   which
��� sesmingly is being overlooked by
I some, which reads,  "Who shall,
! before the day of such election,
have applied to the Returning
O i'icer and have had their names
placed on the list of electors for
such election."   The registering
\oi  your   names   is    absolutely
necessary.   The number of citizens who are eligible for voting
are comparatively   few;  and it
would be a deplorable thing if
'some, otherwise qualified, disenfranchise themselves by neglecting to register.    You have until
the day before election  to look
after the matter.
Another cause of trouble is the
definition of the term "freeholder.". This term,  as defined by
1 the Returning    Ollicer,    mears
i such persons as' hold the deeds
! for their property whether such
deed be registered or not; but

In space that was matchlessly sweet.
Then, without releasing her, he lifted
