ODDFELOWS FEAST
Grand Banquet and Installation
of Officers^in Lodge
'    No. 52.
Occasion Marks Epoch in Early History of Oddfellowship in the ;*$»$
:.','%r. Similkameen.
j Despite the fact that Princeton Lodge
No. 52 I. O. O. F., has only been in ex-
istence'la comparatively short time it has
made rapid strides and is constantly adding new members to its roll. Monday
night last will long be remembered by
the members of the lodge and the district
brethren who were privileged to attend
and take part in the lodge business and
banquet that followed.
The installation of new oncers and
conferring of degrees upon new members
under the direction of the popular District Deputy Grand Master, J. R. Campbell, occupied,lf^je attention of the lodge
until midnight, the following officers
being duly elected: Charles Willerson,
N. G.; Neil Huston, V. G.; J. L. Huston,
secretary; J. O.^jCoulthard, treasurer
The visiting membe;s were Harvey
Hall, Ed. Tingley, Otter Valley; Dell
Young, Wolf Creek; Wm, Arnott, Hed-
ley.
Shortly after 12 o'clock the members
repaired to the Great Northern Hotel
where mine host Swanson had made
elaborate preparations to minister unto
the needs of the inner man. The ban-
quetting • room was appropriately and
tastefully decorated with bunting and
evergreens worked;into emblems of the
order, for which much credit is due Mrs.
Swanson and her staff of assistsnts, and
the. tables fairly groaned under the
weight of the variety of good things pro
vided. When justice had Leen done to
these, toasts' were proposed to the retiring
office, dewly elected officers, newlv initiated members, the visitors, the ladies,
etc., each of"which'was responded to in
Hit manner. Speeches :were made, songs
ssrere fung, and dances danced, until the
IJ|iri began to appear on the eastern horiz
on on the morning of the next day.
During the evening excellent music
was furnished by Messrs. Coulthard and
Knight.
The first annual banquet by  the  Oddfellows   of  Princeton  Lodge No. 52 was
voted a big  success .and  everyone  went I
home feeling satisfied  with 'himself, and
mankind in general.
SUNDAY SCHOOL SOCIAL.
Messrs. Garrison andjLaidley who have
been here looking after E^fe Kribs' timber interests, returned to^B§>rtlan& this
week.   [
The Provincial Legislature meets on
the 16th inst. for the dispatch oc business
Christmas Tree Account and- Statement of S. S. Finances.
Although not so well attended as on
former occasions, due probably to- a surfeit of holiday festivities, the social given
last THtrrsday evening by the Presbyteju-
an Sunaa$>'School-was enjoyed- and ap
preciated bv the children and o'thejs*
present. Games, singing by the Misses,
Lyall, and coffee, tea, fruit, sandwiches
and cake foiHhe inner man, besides the
presentation of prizes to Miss Doris Lyall
and Master Charles Murdoch for regular
attendance and the gift cf a -fine, warm
travelling coat to Pastor Conn made the
moments fly all too swiftly for both little
and big.
During the year 1907 the average of at
tendance has been well maintained and
a new class has been; found necessary,
with Miss Rowan as teacher, to meet the
growing requirements. A library with
about 100 booka of choice literature, as
a beginning, has been provided. These
books are intended for the ' use of' the
children and.adults residing in Princeton
and vicinity,'subject to the rule that no
book shall be kept longer than two weeks
and will   be properly cared for.
The receipts for the year amount to
$50. Donations of $5 to the Chinese fa-,
mine fund'and #2 75 to the Foreign Mission of Neemuch, India, in remembrance of former pastor Rev. D. F. Smith,
were made, besides a dozen Bibles were
purchased for free distributjp.n..^The balance of the receipts was used in ordinary
running expenses for literalnre. The
school expresses gratitude for the free
use of the court room during the year.
The Sunday School.is now fairly well
equipped with helps,, while that splen-.
did paper, the Sunday School Times,
gives exhaustive comment and explanation of each international Bible lesson.
There is" room for many more scholars,
invitation being made to all, old and
young, to attend, for in this enlightened
century no one'can afford to be without
a knowledge of his Bible and the S.S.
is a proper place to acquire it." Sunday
school scholars throughout the worid
now form a vast army numbering about
23,000,000 souls and are always increasing.
Miss Rowan submits the following re
Xmas tree account to which the general
public freely responded in subscriptions,
fsr which they are heartily thanked:
Amonnt subscribed, $71; amount col
lected,.$60,40; balance uncollected, #10.-

It is reported that the "Ghost of Nine-

THE BOOK OF RUTH
Interesting and Instructive Lec=
ture Delivered in the
Court House.
Fifth in Series : " Three-Storied Man "
"Will he Given on Evening of
* Friday. 17th..
The Rev. J. Thurburn-Conn delivered
his lecture on the "Book of Ruth, its
meaning and mission," last night'fjto a
fair sized audience, thafe, followed closely
the: lecturer in his interesting address.
In introducing the subject the reverend
gentleman pointed out that the Book of
Ruth narrated a vary interesting episode
in the history of King David's ancestors
and kept in rembrance the decent of that
monarch. WhMjf.is Narrated therein
prAably occurred about a century before
David. In the Hebrew canon the book
is one of five rolls and Should come immediately after Psalms. It comprises a
period of ten years.
In dealing with the meaning of the
book the learned lecturer showed that
although the genealogical table was incomplete the fact' that no writer could
invent a moabitich ancestress to the
House of David, proved the historical
character as well as the meaning of the
book. Although in .the. post exilic times
inter-marriage with a moabitess would
have been regarded as highly discreditable to a pious Israelite, yet the fact remains in history that such a, marriage
was contracted and was highly blessed of
God.
The mission of the book has four very
important points—1st, it brings out the
pious character of Boaz'and the ' friendly
relation between him and the reapers;
2nd, it illustrates the Jewish land system
and the method of transferring property
from one person to another; 3rd, it hands
down the brave love and uushaken
truthfulness of Ruth, who though not of
the chosen race, was privileged to become
the ancestress of David and so of David's
greater son; 4th, by the adoption of the
Moabitess Ruth into the Church of God
and her acceptance as a mother in Israel,
it anticipates the words of Christ "they
shall come from the east and from the
west." Mr. Conn showed how much the
world required to study the character of
Naoimi as a mother-in-law as well as
a daughter-in-law.
B. C. MINERAL PRODUCTION
For Last Year will Exceed that   of
1906 in Value.
The mineral output of the province of
British Columbia for last year will,'as-
far as can be judged from reports so far
at hand, exceed that of 1906 in point of
value, according to W. Fleet Robertson,
provineial mineralogist. From other
sources it is learned, however, that while
there has been a somewhat lighter production of copper and silver lead, the I
coal output has increased unite materially
so that the total will show a good in^.
crease. The price of copper which was
very high throughout the early months,
of the year will help to bring the valu^
up. The gold production will be lower
than 1906.' Atlin will, roughly speaking,
give about the sanie as the previous yean
Cariboo has also had a slight falling off..
In 1907 the Wellington Colliery Companv
on Vancouver Island produced about the'
same tonnage as the year previous, being
803,000 tons of coal and about 10,000 tons
of coke. The Western Fuel Company at
Nanaimo had a material increase in their
production, 100,000 tons more being taken
out in 1907 than 1906. The Crow's Nest
Coal Co.'s production has also increased
its output, but to what extent is not at
present known. ,With the increased
prices in coal the returns from this end.
of the mining industry was much greater
than in 1906. The drop in the' price of
copper and the consequent shutting down
of many mines with smelters had a bad
effect on the records for the year and the
production was consequently short of
what it otherwise would have been. The
silver lead output experienced a falling,
off, due in considerable measure to the
fact that the price of the metal has been,
reduced.
But while the price of metals has had
the effect of cutting down the commercial production, there has been considerable work in progress throughout the
province where the ore is being stored for ■
future shipment, when the prices have
increased.
"The fight in San Francisco on New
Year's night for the bantam weight
championship of the world, between
Moran, British, and Attell, American,
was declared a draw at the end of twenty-
five rounds. It is described as the greatest contest seen in years and absolutely
even.
INDIAN LANDS RESERVED..
By passing an order-in-council to the
effect that all Indian lands which may
from time to time revert to the Crown
through alienation by the Indians, shall
be reserved from sale, license, pre-emption or other alienation under the Land
Act or the Mineral Act, the Government
has blocked the one loophole to the. recent order reserving all Crown timber
lands. Had this order-in-council affecting the Indian reserves not been passed,
any Indian land rever.ing to the Crown
hereafter might have been filed upon for
timber on the ground that the general
order reserving timber lands passed on
December 23 could not have covered
lands which did not belong to the Crown
at the time it was passed. This loophole
was discerned by the Government tfid'
promptly blocked.     #3s&

WEDNESDAY< JANUARY "o\xigo8.
A  POLITICIAN TRICKSTER.
In a speech recently delivered to
the Young Conservatives'* of New
Westminster Premier McBride added fresh laurels to his reputation
as the biggest political fakir British
Columbia has ever seen. One of
his coast organs describes his "address on this occasion as one of the
greatest ever delivered by this gentleman inside or outside the House.
From the standpoint of evasiveness
and .drivel   it   certainly   was.    at
1 'Ml- .
Which we.must admit Mr. McBride
is a pastmasteri'   The  Premier "' at
great length dealt with the "better
terms" question and endeavored by
all the means z.% his disposal to justify his actions   therewith, and   of
course laid all the blame at the feet
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier for the failure
of the Provincial conference of premiers tp accede to his (McBride's)
demands.    This "better terms"  issue is a favorite theme of the Premier's, for,,did*it  not  carry  him to
London, where he came dangerously near bumping   up   against   the
"foot of the:throne,"  and where he
achieved about as much as  did the
.cat  in   the   nursery rhyme which
? 'went to London to see the Queen."
The Premier had a good time   and
the people paid for it.    It  is   quite
natural therefore that he should at
every possible opportunity touch on
this question and labor to give  the
people something for their money.
It is also Mr. McBride's purpose just
at present to make a  big  noise  on
this or any other subject  that  will
detract public  attention  from   the
part he 'played in the smothering of
the Bowser Asiatic exclusion bill of
last session.    Knowing that he, as
head of the Government, is responsible to the people for  the  enforcement of   measures   passed   by the
Legislature, and through his advice
royal assent is given,  Premier  McBride  also  knew  that  it was  his
duty   to   have   compelled' Lieut.-
Governor Dunsmuir's signature  to
the Bowser bill or else have resigned
in protest. Had he been honest to the
trust imposed in him  by virtue . of
•  his office, had he not been bound by
the same  corporate   interests   that
dominated,'Mr. Dtinsmuir's actions,
iad he been possessed of the high
'deals of  statesmanship   that   one
holding his high office  should  be,
ihad he been the great champion  of
the people that he so often prates
about, and not a weak kneed political tool, who sole aim is to hang
on, by book or crook, to office and
still further help himself and his
unscrupulous masters to the Provincial treasury, he would have re
signed and forced the issue.
But not^o withtheHon. Richard
McBride, who believes jjfi .making
hay while the suiT shines. He is
content to have his authority abused
and trampled underfoot so long as
he . retains, control of the- purse
strings. Surely the time has;.arrived when • British . Columbia requires a more substantial specimen
of manhood at the head of her affairs.
In his New Westminster  speech
Premier McBride-touched  on  the
edges of  the Bowser  bill  episode,
and with a sweep of the hand disposes  of the  matter  by declaring
with deep feeling, "gentlemen, I am
a native son, and you should know
my stand on this Asiatic question."
But   he   studiously avoids   telling
the  public   why   he   allowed   the
Bowser bill to go unsigned  by the
Lieut.-Governor.      What political
horse play.    It is  in  keeping with
Mr.    McBride's   past   record   and
it is only necessary to refer back  a
few years when  Mr.  McBride was
facing the electors  of Dewdney in
an     election      contest    to    prove
this   statement.        At v<?t.h.at   time
the Manitoba' school  question ,was
the 'political topic  of   the ' day and
the section of   the riding   in which
he was speaking was inhabited-.by
a large number of French-Canadian
Catholics, who naturally'wanted to
know the hon. gehtleman'sopinion
on   that   question.    Mr:   McBricfejl
rose equal to the  occasion  and   es-
suming a serious   and   confidential
air'replied, "my mother is   a ; good
Roman Catholic, so you understand
my position."   His next speech was
delivered in another portion of the
riding which i contained  a  regular
Orangeman's  hot-bed.'   Here also
Richard was asked the same question, and without a blush "Dewdney
Dick" made,reply,   "My.father  is
one of the most influential members
of the Orange  Lodge in B. C, it is
therefore unnecessary for me to state
where I stand in this matter."
A really clever   bit   of   political
deception and one that is characteristic of th'e'man.who'has evidently
made a study of all that  is low and
tricky in the'political game.    The
most lamentable feature is that the
majority of the electors( of   British!
Columbia seem to like this kind   of
a man.    The old saying, that   you
"can fool some  of the people some
of the time, but'not all  the   people
all the time," is a wise saying -and
if we are. not greatly mistaken Premier McBride  has   about  reached
the end of his   rope, and'for   the
sake of the Conservative  party and
the Province at large -it  is i.to   be
a change in the leadership, of   the
Government will be effected .before
long. ' ..*...,.

CARNIVAL OF CRIME.
The city of Winnipeg   is   at   present
greatly stirred up over the   carnival   of
crime that has been reigning in that city
recently, and great   indignation   is   expressed at the laxity of officials   m   running the criminals down.   Several  murders have been  committed   right   under
the note of the police and   the   nothing
has been done to bring the guilty ones to
Injustice.   The administration of justice is
A^^r^s'aid to be hampered   by the   penurious
K, of the Attorney-General's department.
IN A GOOD CAUSE.
Over $80,000 has been subscribed to the
provincial anti-tuberculosis fund and encouraging reports are being received by
the committee in charge, from all parts
of the province. In their appeal to the
general public for assistance the commit-
Heig-points out that "we must care for the
consumptive in the right time until he is
"cured, instead of as now in the wrong
place, in the wrong way and at the wrong
time, until he is dead."
MUST HAVE MONEY.
0:iental immigration will not trouble
British Columbia for the winter season
The department has decided to apply the
;, same regulations to   the   Pacific   as   are
now applied to the Atlantic.   That is to
' say, no immigrant, whether foreign or
British, white or yellow, can land on the
Pacific coast unless he has $50 in his possession to maintain him. This regula
lion will remain in force up to February,
alter which date the money which each
person will require to have will be $25.

Jim Hill arrived in town yesterday on
his semi-annual tour oi investigation.
He reports dull times at the coast and
free soup kitchens flourishing. He has
little railroad news to hand out but says
there will be war between the "Mik-

movements are uncertain and his appearances, though meteor.like, are always
interesting to tillicums,

A most serious mix-up between three
firemen and a bunch of Japanese in Vancouver on New Year's night. It appears
that the three firemen had gone down
town to see what was doing on the morn
ing of the New Year and returned home
by way of the Japanese quarters. The
footway is narrow along the route they I
took and when in front of a Japanese
boarding house the firemen engaged in
foolishly trying to push each other off
the walk with the result that one of ihe
men went crashing against the window
of the boarding house breaking the glass.
Several Japanese armed with knives and
clubs emerged from the building and not
waiting to ascertain the cause of the
glass breaking attacked the white men
and carved them up in bad shape. They
were arrested and stand charged with a
serious offence.

When the stomach, heart, or kidney
nerves get weak, then these organs always fail. Don't drug the stomach, nor
stimulate the heart or kidneys. , That is
simply a makeshift. Get a prescription
known to druggists everywhere as Dr.
Shoop's Restorative. The Restorative is
prepared expressively for these weak inside nerves. Strengthen these nerves,
build them up with Dr. Shoop's Restorative—tablets or liquid—and see how
quickly help will come. Free sample
test sent on request by Dr. Shoop, Ra
cine, Wis. Your health is surely worth
this simple test.    Sold by J. R. Campbell.
To check a cold quicklv, get from your
druggist some little candy cold tablets
called Preventics. Druggists evervwhere
are now dispensing Preventics, for they
are not only safe, but decidedly certain
and prompt. Preventics contain no
quinine, no laxative, nothing harsh nor
sickening. Taken at the "sneeze stage"
Preventics will prevent pneumonia, bronchitis, la grippe, etc. Hence the name,
Preventics. Good for feverish children,
48 Preventics ?5 cents. Trial boxes 5 cts.

An original form of advertising comes
from Russia where a shopkeeper posted
up the following announcement: "The
reason whv I have hitherto been able to
sell goods so much cheaper than anybody
else is that I am a bachelor and do not
need to make z profit for the maintenance of a wife and children. It is now
my duty of informing the public that
this advantage will shortly be withdrawn .•
from them, as I am about to be married.
They will, therefore, do well to make .
their purcheses at once at the old rate."
The result was that there was such a run
on the shop that in the course of a few
days this shopkeeper had made money
enough to pay the expense of his wedding on a very lavish scale.
A trolley collided with a milk wagon
and sent the milk splashing on the pavement. Soon a crowd gathered. "Goodness!" exclaimed a man. "What an awful waste!,' A very stout lady stood and
glared at him. "Just mind your own
business," she snapped.

A tickling cough,  from   any cause, is
quickly stopped by Dr.  Shoop's Cough
Cure.  "And it is so thoroughly harmless
and safe, that Dr.  Shoop   tells   mothers
everywhere to give it without hesitation
even to very  young  babes.    The wholesome green leaves and tender stems of a
lung-healing mountainous shrub, furnish
a   curative   properties    to   Dr.  Shoop's
Cough ^Cure.    It calms the cough, and
heals the sore   and   sensitive   bronchial
membranes.   No opium, no chloroform,
nothing harsh used to injure or suppress.
Simply a resinous   plant   extract,  that
helps to heal' aching lungs.   The Spaniards call this   shrub which   the   doctor
uses, "The Sacred Herb."     Always demand Dr. Shoop's Cough Cure.   Sold by
J. R. Campbell.
