Mazie   Campbell-Johnston    of
Nicola Takes Carbolic Acid
To End Her Life.
Miss.Mazie Campbell-Johnston, daughter of R. C. Campbell-Johnston, M. E., of
Nicola, attempted to take ber life on
Monday last by swallowing a dose of carbolic acid, according to report. It appears the young lady had been keeping
the company of a gentleman named Jack
Chapman, much against her father's
wishes. Report even says that the irate
father threatened to puncture young
Chapman's hide if he persisted in paying
attention to his daughter. Not to be
outdone the two fond hearts that were
desirous to beat as one decided to take
the matter in their own hands, it is said,
and planned to elope. Be<x>mihg^**4"cr>
quainted wjth these facts the parental
head had the police put on their • trail
and the erring one was brought home-
Preferring death to separation j from the
man of her choice, Miss Mazie partook
of the contents of a bottle of carbolic acid,
but before the deadly poison had time to
fulfil its ghastly mission medical aid was
summoned and her life was saved. Nicola
is greatly stirred up over the incident.

' In accordance with recommendations
made to the Tariff Commission during
the visit to British Columbia, by mining
men, several changes have been made in
the tariff as introduced in the budget
speech by Hon.-Mr. Fielding,-last week.
The following articles are dropped from
the free list and will become dutiable as
machinery, or as manufactured iron or
steel, as the case may be: Coal washing
machinery, coke making machinery
charcoal making machinery ore drying
machinery ore refining machinery, ball
and rock emery grinding machinery,
jigs, classifiers, separators, blast furnaces,
Vater?jjic%ets; monitors, and gia'nts.  .
The following have been added to the
ifree list and are free of duty: Parts of
monitors, safety lamps and accessories
for cleaning filling and testing such
lamps; blast furnaces for the smelting of
copper and all integral parts of all ma
chinery specified in the items. The diameter of the tubing covered by the items
has been increased from 2l/2 to 4 inches
Briquetting plants are also on the free
list and the duty on giant powder is reduced from three cents to two and a half
"cents per pound. Slag trucks used at
copper smelters are admitted free.
Wk      A COAL  HOLDUP.
A Portland, Ore., late despatch says
that town after town in Washington and
Oregon is stopping trains forcibly,
weighing out coal at eight dollars per
ton, depositing money to repay the railroad. The fuel famine is accentuated by
the unusual cold snap. Wilbur, Garfield,
and Winona, Wash., Ontario, Ore., and
Nyssa and Payett, Idaho, have boldly
held lip conductors and raided cars. The
Ontario ptople forced the trainmen to
sidetrack four cars. The railroad has
asked the prosecuting attorney of Whitman county to issue warrants against
Winona citizens. He has refused. The
car shortage is largely responsible for the
famine.
A colored baby has been born in Pa-

ST. ANDREW'S  DAY.
The anniversary of St. Andrew's (jay-
was duly celebrated on Friday evening,
Nov. 30th in most every city and village
throughout the Province. Princeton's
sons of the land where the heather grows
did not make merry in their own town,'
but those who could manage to make the
trip joined their Hedley brethren in
singing—
■ No nation,  no nation,

"A Scot still—I know no higher

The Hedley. St. Andrew's Society did
themselves proud on the occasion, and
feasted and toasted their patron saint in
truely Scottish fashion. Some forty
guests sat down to a sumputous repast,
after which the braw lads and lassies
danced to the enchanting strains of
Scottish airs until the wee sma' hours of
the day after.

In an interview with a coast paper recently, Mr. Voigt is reported as saying
that he has bonded No. 14 group on Copper mountain to a large corporation now

Forks.
Under date of Grand Forks,  Nov.   25,
the Spokesman-Review publishes an  interview with   R. A. Brown,   the  original
locator of the Sunset group of mines   o»
Copper   mountain.     Mr.   Brown   is   re
ported   as   saying:      "The   South   Yale
Copper'Co. and Jim Hill's experts  have
turned down the Sunset  group, the  biggest copper property in the world. When-
the   South  Yale   Copper   Co.'s- experts
went over to the Sunset group last spring
I followed   them, over, knowing-that   I
conldlieip them  if  they wou|d only listen .to'my practical experience on Copper
mountain.    I had a  long   talk with   Mr'.
Underhill of New York, president of the
company.-   I met him at'Princeton afte:
; he came from Copper mountain, and told
!hi(m about my experiettfietih  doi'rFg* work-
ion the'Sunset. "> I showed hinJiithe  aver
;age   assays from the   surface   down   the
jshaft to the 100 and 150 .foot,   levels   and
jthe assaysfrOm the'196'footdepth, which
.went .598 per cent in copper [and 80 cts.
■in gold to the ton.    I advised him to put'
p^jB^ciiinery and sink a shaft down   to;
the 30o,foot level and  crosscut   east and
west.acrbss.the metals, which "would, be
50b feet orie way and 600 feet   the   other '
way.'&bjich'jvould'cross   the   metals   at.
that.'depth.
;. "Mr. UnderhiH'agreed'witri. all I said.
He then went to Greenwood a'nd to New
York, but he left implicit instructions
with a Mr. Morrison at Eholt,regarding
the work on the Sunset. I saw Mr. Mor-,
risoh and be told me that his orders were
to go to.the Sunset group arnd -get the
water.as low as possible and then drift
along the me^al deposits. I told him
that they wanted to" spend $20,060 on
what I already knew. This company expended $16,000 in useless work and "con- I
trary to my instructions, it taking four
months to do the work. I told the
South Yale Copper Co. officials to take
note of my report and see if it did not
prove itself just as I had stated.
"At this time Jim Hill's experts came
along and inspected Copper mountain
and 'turned it down.' It was then that
the snpt. of the South Yale Co. finally
concluded that my report and way of
prospecting the Sunset was correct, and
he wanted to spend another $4,000 in diamond drill work following the plans that
I had laid out. But_,when we figured
that it would cost $10,000 to prospect the
group we made the company the offer
that if they would <pnt up the next payment of $10,000 we would let them have
the; stock at the same price they had
been paying for it. They refused to do
this and we shut down the mine after
this company had spent $16,000 in doing
useless work on the group."
Mr. Brown concludes by stating "that
90 per cent, of the mining experts have
entirely mistaken their calling and
should be following the plow."
Great Northern stockholders will have
as a Xmas gift one of the largest finan-
cia*"meIons" ever cut in Wall street.

PROVINCIAL NOMINATIONS.     jn savins SsS  »*-
Taking   into   consideration   the
fact that  a   Provincial   election   is
liable to be brought on at any  time
now by the McBride-Socialist Government,  nominations for  political
honors are taking place in   tbe different electoral districts of the Province on both sides and   an   opportunity is thus afforded to "size up"
and compare some of the men so far
brought out.
At the Liberal convention held last
week for  Kamloops district, J. D,
Swanson, barrister, was unanimously chosen   to   uphold   the   Liberal
standard in opposition to the  Conservative   candidate,   Hon.   F.   J.
Fulton.    Referring to the selection
of   Mr.   Swanson   the    Kamloops
Sentinel says:    "By the selection of
Mr. Swanson,   the   Liberals   have
given their cause into the   hands of
a man who has been identified with
the Liberal party all   his   life   and
who, since taking up his residence
in Kamloops, has  persistently, vigorously, and with  his   whole   soul
and  strength,  fought   the   party's
battles.    Mr. Swanson is eminently-
qualified to sit in   the   Legislature.
He is   thoroughly conversant   wich
both Dominion and Provincial politics; is  an   earnest   student, scholarly, a good debater and a  man   of
whose intrinsic worth, honesty and
integrity there is no  question.    In
him his political opponent will  find
jSPSsilno  mean  antagonist, and   with   a
united Liberal party in  the   city of
Kamloops, hitherto  the  one  weak
spot in the district, there  is  every
reason to   believe   that   the   confi
dence  the  Liberals   now   have   of
winning this seat at the' next   election is well founded."
The Hon. Mr. Fulton's  political
standing is too well known   to   require extensive  notice.    Like  the
majority of McBride's  supporters,
he was selected, not on account   of
his ability, but merely as  a  voting
machine to assist   the  Government
in carrying out its schemes   to  rob
the Province at the expense of the
already    overburdened    taxpayer.
Mr. Fulton dresses well, lives well,
and looks well.    Goes  to Victoria,
draws his pay, votes to keep  himself and  party   in   power, and   to
perdition with the country.

mine will be pumped out. The working
shaft will then be sunk three hundred
feet deeper which will give a total depth
of seven hundred feet.

ago.. Someone happened to look south
and a smoke was seen. After several
pairs of field glasses had beeu brought to
bear on the spot it was discovered that
it was caused by the train six miles from
Oroville laying track. It was about 18
miles away, but even at that distance it
looked good to some of us who had never
seen one before. Horses have gone
away down in price since.
We regret to hear that Miss Alice
Cook, who has had charge of the school
here for the past two years, is leaving,
as she has made herself very popular
with all. She has accepted an offer of a
school near her home in Victoria.
It is reported that the Southern Okanagan Land Co. intend to put surveyors
in the field at once to locate their halt a
million dollar ditch to put water on the
Fairview flats, and that before spring
they will have lots to sell that will produce all kinds of fruit.
The roads were never known to be in
better condition at this time of the year
in this district thanks to the weather,
and if the Government would only spend
a few dollars occasionally down this
end we might feel inclined to sell our
saddle horses and invest   in   good   stout

George Sproule, who has lately been
appointed Provincial constable and chief
license inspector, has moved into his
new quarters at Osoyoos. As there is no
postoffice or telephone within twelve
miles of his office, his lot ought to be a
happy one. Why the powers that be do
not station him here, where it is possible
to find out.what is going on, no one
seems to know unless it is to pay the
people of our. town a compliment.
We are glad to know that Mrs. Peterson, who some months ago fell and

Arrangements are being made to have
an Xmas tree entertainment for tbe children. As there are nearly 100 youngsters
to look after it is not going to be any
small affair, and it is a case of dig down

going to run it themselves this year, so it
