WHO ARE MINISTERS?
Instructive Lecture  on Dut»s
and Sphere of Ministers
of Gospel.
0 "Sidelights of Married Life" Subject
of Next Lecture on Friday
14th Inst.
Monday evening the lecture " The
Ministrv, Its Nature, Work and R'ivfard"
was delivered by Rev. J. T. £ onn in, the
court house to a small but j appreciative
audience. The lecture was punctuated
with many forceful truths and was practical throughout. He did not confine
himself to the ecclesiastical meaning of
the word but showed, how we all were
more or less ministers, the nature of
which depended very much how we accepted and view life. Life, he pointed
out, was a larger \vdrd than Teligion or
goodness. In our efforts towards right
living we often fail, not for want of a
pure and strong purpose, but because we
have not in buxgelves enough vital force
to give effect to our purpose. The ministry is a divine appointment, * not of
human invention. It is a service of and
from Christ. The ministry is a sacred
service done with good and pure motives
for a high end. Such holy Service can,
and ought to be rendered by the people
outside our churches. The love of Christ,
the love of humanity, should constrain
us all to use our time and influence to the
best advantage. . |
The work of the ministry was the se'c-.'
ond point to be considered. The secret
of noble and jojjful  living lies largely inj
' putting ourselves in steady communication with the reservoirs set for the supply
of man's soul while he sojourns here in
the flesh. We are not here to dream and
drift, we, 3-ou and I, have hard work to
do. The minister guides his people to
see visions arifljinspires them to go forth
to meet those visions until they become
part of the immediate horizon.    He with
Ivjs i£ our private, buSiness au$'liome life
should be what we wish to appear to the
world at large. God is our Good Shepherd. He knows you and you know
Hitn. Work on and work in that assurance aud your work will?have a savour
of life unto life.
The last point to be reviewed was the
reward of the minister. Every good
word and work has its own reward in the
fact of the actor having done what he
was convinced Mas the right word and
work to do. The minjslei;,speaks for and
in the name of Christ tolr|umanitv. jHil
mission is to lead men to see how much
better life could be lived and enjoyed if
we were to live in the service of Him.
who was love, and love and Sjsve one
another.    The reward of such  noble ser
vice hj ithe truth of his message being
sjeen iri action in the everyday life of the
people and the rest and reward for faithful service at the hands of Him who
called him to go forth, and teach all nations. The parent who ministers at home
—the statesman in his sphere—in the
office, in the" b'usmess house,- the builder,
toiler, school teacher, all are called tp be
ministers—that is, to service-; to help and
to love, and. each, acdording-todiis or her
faithfulness, wiljtafie re\v^4sSi "ere >n
seeing their message belie'ySd, their
homes holier, business mora/ successful
and the world slowly neverjn'ieless surely
becoming more like heaven, when peace
and goodwill will cover the earth as the
.waters cover the sea. s^y-.
The subject of the next lectujref to be
delivered on Friday eveningr-P^b. 14th,
-will be "Side Lights on Marriecttife."
GEOLOGICAL REPORT.
Prompt Issue and Free., Distribution
to Bona Fide Applicants.
The summary report of the^'Geological
Survey of Canada for the yeSi 1907 has
just been published and is now on every
editor's desk in the country.-':p3te prompt,
ness with which it has bejSi; issued is in
striking contrast with tbeQStltatory way
in which the report of»thja minister of
mines for B.C. is issued—stjf'months after'
the year is ended. Under-th.4 Hon. W.!
Templeman, the Dominion £*I3bpartnjent
of Mines, which incTOtfgK^}&:'ij;eologicall
survey, is thoroughly i|p%j.T§j£|e. Free1
distribution of any rerjprt of economic
or scientific interest will bgfltnade to all
bona fide applicants in Canada. The report for 1907 covers only a small portion
of the Similkameen, at and adjacent to
Camp Hedley. This year Chas. Camsell,
who was in charge of the surveys here
irj|the past two summers, will work in
the platinum field near Tulameen. It
will be the first government report issued
from Ottawa on this interesting field.
LABORERS IN DEMAND.
_A. L, Craig, general passenger agent of
the Great Northern Railway, with head
quarters at St. Paul, has issued a circular
to the agents of the company. In this
circular he says just now there are a
great many unemployed men and that it
has occurredTo him that it will be inter
esting to marly people to learn of the de
mand for laborers and miners in the
Tanana district in Alaska.
"Charles E. Peabody, president of the
Alaska Steamship Co,,1' he says, "advises
him that the Tanana district is short of
between 2,000 and 3,000 men for mining
work. The route into this country is by
way of Valdez, and the sailings of the
steamers from Seattle occur about every
eight days.".
BURNED TO DEATH
'♦Dot
Marpole  Meets  Death
in Terrible Manner on
January 28.
His Home is Burned and  Marpole
Perishes in the Flames—Leaves^
Wife and Child.
: A distressing fatallity occurred at Dot
station, on the line of the Spences Bridge-
Nicola branch of the C.P.R., as as.result
of which Mr. Dalton P. Marpole^son of
Mr. R. Marpole, general executive assistant of the C.P.R , was burned to death.
News of the odcurreuce reached Princeton last Wednesday afternoon by telephone. From what can be learned it appears Mr. Marpole and ajiired man were
the only occupants of the house on the
evening of the fire, Tuesday, Jan. 29th,
Mrs. Marpole and child being in Kam-
loops on a visit to frierids. How the fire
originated does not s^em to be known,
but the flames spread so rapidly that the
employee of Mr. Marpole's had a narrow
eseape with his life and had no : opportunity to attempt a rescne of Mr. Mai-
pole, and it is supposed the, latter was
suffocated and had no.chauce,Jig, escape.
[ The deceased was the second son of
Mr. R. Marpole and was about-; twenty-
eight years old. He was married some,
four.years ago, taking up his residence at
tW-rjTd Gordon ranch, which lies twenty-
two miles out of Spence's Bridge on the
line to Nicola. Prior to his marriage
Mr. Marpole was a resident of Vancouver
where he was prominently identified with
out-door sports, especially Rugby football, at which he\was an expert.
DUNCAN ROSS, M. P.
Duncan Ross, M. P. for Vale-Cariboo,
is making a record>at the present session
of the Dominion House. Hijs, recent
speech on the Asiatic question was one
of the ablest ever delivered in the
House. His more recent speech touching
the McBride Governmeht'sS'trickery in
dealing with the Oriental problem . in
this Province and Attorney - General
Bowser's duplicity in this matter is. a
masterpiece and the Star will publish extracts from it next week.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.

POSTMASTER-GENERAL
Reports Gratifying Surplus for Nine
Months of $1,082,301.
The annual report of the Postoffice Department covers the period of nine
months ..ending March 31st, 1907, a
change in the fiscal year to that date
making the amounts much less than if
for a full year. The gross revenue for
the nine months amouijteiLtp $6,535,093;
expenkiture $5,452,791 ;%urplus $1,082,-
301. Prior to 1896, when the present
Government was elected by the people,
there were continual deficits from year to
year and surpluses were unknown. Compared with other departments . of the
Government the postoffices of Canada are
a marvel of simplicity in' their operation.
The system is so simple that persons
without previous experience can manage
an ordinary office, which speaks well for
those who devised the great plan of oper-
tion on mch a large scale in this extensive Dominiow. Under the head of gross
postal revenue Princeton ranks second
among the postoffices of the Similkameen. It is not too much to expect that
it will-soon rank first.
CANADA INVITING.
British official emigration returns
show Canada's unquestioned supremacy
among countries receiving British emigrants. In 1906 Canada received 5,300
more Britishers than . the United States,
and in 1907 she received 16,969 more.
The rest of the British empire is nowhere
as compared to Canada. Despite the assisted passages, Australasia received only
14,369 as against Canada's 117,586. Of
course a large -proportion of these are
adults. It is probably true to say that
Great Britain presented to Canada last
year a population hardly less than that of
the province of Saskatchewan. A remarkable feature is that this unprecedented British exodus synchronises with
the unprecedented large foreign trade.

Bowser's denial:

absolutely liMtrue. It's only in
line with his whole policy in
connection with this matter.
When a lawyer violates the
confidence of his client to make
political capital against his opponent, the client is absolutely
justified in making public the
circumstances under which the
i^phtract was drawn. Mr.
Gotch knows as much about
this matter as W. J. Bowser,

the credit rests wholly with the

facts bear this out to the letter-
The   best - that   a   Conservative
Government could be persuaded to
do to limit the  influx  of   Chinese
was to institute a  $50   head   tax1.
ofciWhen the Liberals took office this
:fitead tax was   almost   immediately
' raised to $100 and that not proving
adequa.e to stay the influx, the tax
was   shortly  afterwards  raised   to
$500.    At that time there was  no
■very serious anti-Japanese question,
f but In deference to the report of the
Royal Commission the   Dominion
Government entered   ini:q, negotiations with the   Japanese   Govern-
l^fieht and secured the; passage of an'
order   riipncling   the  'number   of
Japanese permitted to migrate from
Japan  to   Canada.      Recently the

it is no" one can regard the action
he did take as being otherwise
than cynically contemptuous of
public feeling in British Columbia.
He told a Dominion official at Ottawa a few days before the Bowser
bill passed the Legislature that it
would not be assented to by the
Lieutenant - Governor, and yet
knowing this, he neither expressed
disapproval, nor suggested to the
Dominion Government that Dunsmuir should beotherwise instructed.
Whilst the Tories were in office
at Ottawa they did little or nothing
to stem the tide of Oriental immigration and the "same ■ may be said
oi the Tories in office in this prov
ince; they made great promises and
threatened all manner of achiements
that would bar out the Orientals,

ARE YOU SCOTCH?
To be born a Scotchman is to be born
with a silver spoon in the mouth.   It is
to Dorn, as it  were, into   the   governing
family.    We English are the hewers   of
wood and drawers of water for our Caledonian masters.   Formerly they used to
raid our borders and steal our cattle, but
they kept to their   own   soil.   In   those
happy days an Englishman had a chance
in his own country.    Today he is   little
better than a hed-carrier.   The   Scotchmen have captured not our cattle but the
British empire.   Thev sit in the seats of

pot and over Canada   do   they cast   out
their shoe.   The   head   of  the   English
Church is a Scotchmau, and his brother
o ' York came out as a Scotch Presbyterian manse.    The Premier is a Scotsman,,
and the Lord Cliancellor, the  Keeper  of
the King's conscience, is a Scotsman, too
London has become an annex'  cf  Edinburgh, and Canada is little more  than  a

this was inevitable, but had they
gone about the matter seriously, instead of being actuated solely by
the idea of making political capital
against the Liberal Government at
Ottawa, it is conceivable that things
only recently accomplished might
have been obtained earlier.
Whatever has been done to limit
Oriental immigration has been done I
entirely by   the   Liberal   Government at Ottawa and no amount  of
gallery play now  by McBride  and

TO REGULATE COAL LANDS.
A bill has been   introduced   by   Hon.
Mr, Tatlow in the Provincial Legislature
for   the   purpose   of    makirig    uniform
throughout the province the coal i.egula
tions.    The regulations   with   regard   to
tax  and royalty are not the same; for instance, at the mines of   the Crow's  Nest
Pass Coal Co. the Governmental charges
amount to 5 cents per   ton   for   all   coal
mined and 5 per   cent,   royalty.    Under
the laws of the province there are certain
holdings the usufruct of which is enjoyed
free of al    royalties.    The measure, it   is
claimed, w'u   do awa3' with all   enabling
legislation and will leave to the province
the right to impose such taxes as it sees
fit.   The measure is especially important
in view of the development of the various
coal   measures   of  the   province.     The
numerous new.grants which   have   been
made recently and the move to   develop
others  will doubtless receive an impetus.
With all coal measures in  the   province
placed upon} the  same   footing, the   rev-
jenue will,doubtless ultimately be greatly
augmented. ,

I wish that I might talk with all sick
ones about the actual cause of Stomach,
Heart and Kidney ailments. To explain
in person how'weak stomach nerves lead
tp stomach weakness, I am sure would
interest all. And it is the same with
weak heart or weak kidneys. This is
v^hy my prescription—Dr. Shoop's Restorative—so promptly reaches ailments
of the stomach, heart and kidneys. It is
wrong lo drug the stomach or stimulate
the heart or kidneys. These weak inside
nerves simply need more strength. Mv
Restorative is the only prescription made
expressly for these nerves. Next to seeing you personally, will be to mail you
free, mvnew booklet entitled, "What To
Do." I will also send samples of my Restorative as well. Write for the' book today. It will surely interest you. Address Dr. Shoop, Box 8, Racine, Wis.
If you have catarrh, rid yourself of this
reoulsive disease. Ask Dr. Shoop, of
Racine, Wis., to mail you free, a trial box
'of this. Dr. Shoop's Catarrh Remedy. A
simple, single test, will surely tell you a
catarrh truth well worth your knowing.
Write today. Don't suffer longer. Sold
