Two teams composed of, players  representing Atliu and Discovery  played a friendly game on Thursday morning, resulting in a win  for the home players. The following is the line-up of the teams.  Discovery.���Hampton skip, Cart-  mcl,  Jamieson, Hickman.  Atlin.���Wheeling skip, Vickers,  Young, Bourne.  Score: Atlin u; Discovery 9.  The score was tie at the last end  so an extra had to be played.  There will not be much use for  oratory during the picsenl election,  owing to the shortness of the  campaign and, more particularly,  owing to the absence of so many of  those whose business, or long purses, enables them to follow the swal-  lowsiwith the flight of the seasons.  , But if we are short in numbers  there is certainly no lack of enthusiasm-on the-part ofthe electors, and  if the- interest -manifested at this  meeting shows which way the  straws are .blowing then Dr. Young  goes back, not only with a bumper  majority, but' the well wishes and  hearty appreciation of his work, by .the camp. _.   .  The meeting was held at the residence of Mr. -and Mrs. Clay, to  whom the committee tender their  hearty thanks for the use ofthe  house.  'There was a large attendance,  over fifty being, present, arrd the  greatest interest was taken in the  proceedings.  Mr. Norman McLeod acted as  chairman; aud Captain Irving, who  had been invited to attend, was  present.  Dr. Young was called upon and  in an opening speech said that the  object of the meeting was for the  discussion of the issues before the  people and render an account  of his stewardship of the interests  intrusted to him in 1903. He very  briefly went over the work accomplished by the present administration  which had a bearing on our district, the reforms that had been  effected in the mining laws, the  amendments to the county court  act, the expenditure for roads, trails  and bridges, for schools, and the  hospital. He said that it was not  his intention to dwell at length on  these points as there will be anothei  meeting at Discovery next week,  when matters will be gone into  more exhaustively, and also because  Capt. Irving, wished to speak, after  which Dr. Young would close the  meeting, allowing time to any one  present to ask ^questions or state  their views.  Capt. John spoke briefly. He  touched on a great many points  but offered no opinion 011 local mat-,  ters, which was very disappointing  to the gathering, as they expected  at least som criticism, if not of local  then of those of the actions of the  government in the management of  the affairs of the country. He was  followed by Dr. Young, who spoke  at some length on the questions  touched upon by the Captain.  It is,, .to.,bo .regretted; that Capt.

To an unbiased mind there can be  no doubt as to the result of. the  meeting. Anyone who was there  and listened to Mr. Koppacher's  remarks could form but one opinion as lo the.'.sentiment of the  camp in the present election. Dr.  Young's actions were thoroughly  endorsed in a motion moved in a  neat'speech by Mr. Charles Baker  and enthusiastically carried by the  meeting. After a few very sensible words of advice from the  chairman, Mr. Norman McLeod,  the meeting closed by singing  '.'God Save The King."  Lowuey's Fresh Chocolates $r.oo  per lb., at C. R. Bourne's.

Having no stable of his  own he look the animal to that of  another man and asked the price  per week for boarding him. He  was told that it would be $4. lie  threw up his hands and went out.  At the second place they told him  the charge would be $3. 'This did  not satisfy him, and he was advised  to go to a stable kept by one of his  own race. This he did, telling the.  man what the others had asked.  "I vill board hiiufor two tollars."  said thc man.  The owner of the horse thought  a moment, then said: "That is  better but how much vill you allow  me Tor the manure?"  "Mine fricnt," was the answer,  "at two tollars a vcek there von't  be any manure." m  ATLIN,    B.  C,    SATURDAY,       JANUARY 22,    1907  he Atlin Claim.

The Proviriccat Large; .  We publish today thc official list  of the nominations, which were  made Saturday, the 19th, throughout the province. There are many  changes, the names of some of the  present members on, both sides do  not appear. In all Ihe constituencies an effort seems to have been'  made to bring forward the best  men, aud throughout thc province  the fight is on.  large to overcome, are making the  'wish the father of the thought.'  The population of British Columbia  is  too   small and   tbe  record of the  1  present government too good to expect, any such landslide.  The people of British Columbia  know a good thing, when they have  it, and are not to be swayed,by  Ottawa influence or the campaign  funds of a land grabbing railroad  that failed to'secure from the present government the heritage of the  people, but'hope by bringing about  a change to secure their ends. The  days ot land grants are over, the  present government has taken that  stand and the people will sustain  them.

Now, .News,   you  no   less   than   in   names being ou | have   made a statement; if there is  the  official list,  divided as follows: jis a���y   g00d  in   you 'make good' ���  Conservatives 42; Liberals 41; Soc- or 'eat dirt.'���Lardeau Mining Re-  ialisl 21; Labor 6; Independent 1;  arrd there is .no doubt that from  amongst this number the electors of  British Columbia will be able lo  choose suitable men to carry on the  business of the country.  The opponents of the government  in our own district are making a  strong point of the assertion that  thc next Government will be liberal. We have made no comment  heretofore on this point, preferring  to wait until we had received the  official list and were able to judge  intelligently of the standing of the  different candidates. The large  number of socialist (21) in the field,  as against eight in the last session,  will have a strong bearing on the  results, and will greatly influence  thc thinking men who are making  forecasts. To those who make  asserlions for political purposes, wc  have nothing lo say. They never  take the trouble lo analyse ihe situation carefully but simply claim  everything in sight.  As the province stands there are  . thirty-four constituencies, of which,  in the present house, the liberals  liave twelve. Vancouver, Victoria  and Cariboo have, amongst them,  eight extra members, thus making  forty-two members in the house.  Of these sixteen arc liberals. If  the next government is to be liberal  they must gain six members to give  them a majority ol one, as they will  have to elect a speaker, which loses  them a vote. To have the same  majority which the conservatives  have at present, over liberals and  socialists together, exclusive of the  speaker, they must gain seven seals,  and a careful analysis of the list of  nominations fails to show where  they can do it. ���  In the election of 1903 the conservatives polled 4,000 (lacking 2)  more votes than the liberals, without counting the labor aud socialist  vote. With 2r socialists in the  field during the present election it  seems to us that our opponents,  ���>vith <c\-ci\ seats to ;srain and a majority   of .|,ouu  in   the province ati  view.    '  In spite of the attempts of the  opposition press lo belittle the person and political prospects of Mr.  Price Ellison, it is obvious from the  result ofthe recent nominating convention that he is still one of the  most popular men in the Okanagan.  The grand rally was large and enthusiastic. Mr. Ellison make a  capital speech and was supported  by the Premier. Plis nomination  was "unanimous. It is not likely  that any apponent will come within  measurable distance of Mr. Ellison's  vote.  Brewers   of Lager  Beer  and Porter.  SMALL AND LARGE ORDERS PROMPTLY FILLED.

Some of  the old 'stand-bys' going to pieces,  and the beginners coming to the  front wonderfully well. "  As will be seen by the score Discovery vanquished Atlin by three  to one in the games, though in .the  total number' of points scored during  all   the games   Atlin  leads by  7-  The. first match was very closely  contested, it was necessary to play  an extra end on account ofthe score  tieing, Discovery .winning the odd  point. Tbe second event was a  very one-sided affair, the score in  this turning the aggregate points  made in the combined games in  favor - of Atlin. The third and  fourth contests were somewhat similar to the first, the scores being  rather evenly balanced.  Quite a number of spectators were  present during the matches but the  weather was really too cold to expect a crowd. Many who went  down had to leave on that account.  It is very likely that the Atlin  teams will visit Discovery on Saturday, tbe 26th, and it is 'up to'  the Atlitr curlers to go up with a  strong aggregation and give them  a generous return for their splendid  turnout last Saturday.

On Wednesday, the 23rd, the  5ftst sad rites were performed over  U>.e bodies of Mat McEwa.11 nnd  Dan Burnyea.1 ns. they were lowered  into tlie grave and laid side by side  ' in the Atlin cemetery. So they  worked in Hie, and thev were lo-  gether in death, and- so will they be  in their last long sleep, side by side  in the one grave.  The pallbearers for McEwan were  John Anness, Richard SnraiU. Jas.  Dick, Alex. ' .McDonald, Charles  Baker and St. G. Bowley. The  pallbearers for Burnyeat were A. G.  Broe, J. Perkinson, Wm. Mclvech-  nie, A. E. Peters, Alex. McCrhn-  lnoii and George NeilL P. Foley  officiated at the burial of McEwan,  at the graveside. Capt. I-Lathorn  read the burial service over Burnyeat at the church and grave. The  funeral was a very large one, nearly  the entire population of Spruce coming down, besides many from, Discovery and Atlin attending-.  McEwan and Burnyeat were  crushed to death, in a drift, ou the  Texas bench claim, '' on Spruce  Creek', on the .tjtb. January last.  Thursday evening about supper  time 'Andy' Broe noticed there was.  ���*  ! The calamity fairly stunned the  population of the : creek and for a '  time work was entirely suspended.  Our little camp has been very unfortunate lately, this last makes the  third serious accident" with four  deaths as a result. Our population  is small and our interests so interwoven and identical that the loss of  one or two, especially in such a  sudden aud awful manner, comes  upon us as a shock and diverts the  mind into the channel of solemn  thoughts.  It might   be   well lo utter a word'  of caution   here,   lo  those   who are  left   behind,    many   of   whom   are  working   in   places   none,  loo safe-.  Life is too precious to lake too many  chances.    As one of the boys put it;  "Life may be a continual grind and  sometimes   the   road   is  rough and  the  obstacles  unsurmountable,   but  we .may as well live   because, to the  bes.t of our knowledge,, we. have nothing to gain by dying.Sl    Familiarity with danger; sometimes breeds a  conlenipt lhat   is  likely lo end seriously. ��� Risking one's life for a few  ounces of the yellow dust is a game-  not worth playing.    The stake's are  too unequal..  >5  <}>-�� **************** *-*-*-*-*-*-* <j><V>_��.-��-��-*.,  >-���-���<���>  USE  OUR ADVERTISING COL--  UMNS;  e��*       'z��r* c$&  t��" ����*  Placing before the public  the  many  advantages of  "7 ' 1  the district is the object of  U  no smoke coining  from  the cabin  stovepipe of the two men.    Thinking something might have happened, he   werrt across thc creek to the  drift and walked iu a way, discovering, to his  horror,   that the umbers  had  given   way   and a cave-iu  had  occurred.     Immediately he gave an  alarm.     In a very short,time neaily  everyone ou the creek had responded and the work,  of rescue started.  Gangs   of   four   men   at two-hour  shift   went   lo   work   with   feverish  'energy and  the slirt was soon coming out as fast as the cars could,  be  handled.    The work was carried on  throughout   thc   night   and  ou  ti,ll  about   noon   of the  following day,  ivhen they  came  upon the body of  Burnyeat.    On cleaning away more  of the dirt McEwan was   found laying   partially   across   his   partner's  body.    They had undoubtedly been  killed instantly, as they must   have  been  tons   of dirt   on   l.op.of them.  They  were  not  disfigured though  the bodies   were crushed and; bones  broken.    They were brought lo Atlin and prepared   for,   burial, by   E.  Pillman.  Both the victims of thc unfortunate occurence were very popular on  tlie creek. McEwan has been in  the camp since 1S99. lie had accumulated a nice little sum of money', and intended this to be his last  season iii here. He had bought a  r.anch in Alber.ta and-was going out  to work it.      As   far   as  known he  St,. Andrew's Church.  The annual congregational meeting ql.
