Nelson Residents Interested
Concerning Outrages in
the District
Residents of tbe city of Nelson
and district are deeply interested in
revelations made to a newspaper
tbere regarding Doukhobor outrages
of recent date. It appears tbat
Peter Veregin, the leader, and Sher-
binin, his so-called papal secretary
and general manager, have been instrumental in preventing members
of the colony - at Brilliant from receiving medical attention. This has
resulted in nt least one death.
It has been proved time and time
again tbat Veregin holds power of
life and death over bis subjects, the
Doukhobors, and tbat this power is
abused. The letter from Valdemar
Kruglak bas. caused considerable
excitement in Nelson, and the question is being asked wben will the
government Uke steps to prevent
further outrages. Since the Blakemore report the Doukhobors have
assumed an attitude of defiance, as
they feel that tbey are being protected by the government. Tbey are
not forced to conform'with the laws
Of Canada.
The letter follows:.
"A report being made to the gold
commissioner of Nelson by Mrs. J.
E. Kennedy and myself. At his request, Dr. Hartin and Provincial
Constable King went to the Doukhobor community at Brilliant, B. C.
to enquire about a certain sick man,
by name Vaceilie Navakshownoff.
"On arrival they asked Mr. Sher-
binin and bis helpers to show them
to the sick man. He positively denied to Dr, Hartin any knowledge
of tbe man, declaring that t-iere was
no one of the name of Navakasbow-
noff in the community (and I know
Mr. Sherbinin is a great friend of
bis.) The otber Doukhobors also
ssid tbere wan no sick man there.
"Then Mr. King came to me and
asked me to accompany them to the
community to And the sick man. I
went witb tbem across the river and
-.very Doukhobor we asked said tbey
didn't know of any sick person. It
certainly seemed as if orders had
been given to all Doukhobors to
deny to a doctor any knowledge of
a sick person, and not to reveal to
him the house where the sick man
lay. Finally one of Navakashownoff's
relatives described the house to me,
and upon arriving there we met a
'Doukhobor woman wbo lived in the
house, and she also denied all
knowledge of a sick person and said
he was not there.
"Passing by the window I heard
moanings and I looked in and I saw
the siok man lying on a bed and an
old man standing beside the sick
man holding hia hand over the sick
- man's mouth to suppress his moanings. I knew tben this was the stek
man we were seeking.
"We went into the house and
found blm lying on a dirty bed in a
dungeon of a room, and he wus
breathing very heavily. We ftskad
him how long be had been sick and
be answered very feebly:
" 'I have been   forbidden to tell.'
"Then the doctor examined him
and said, 'It's too late; he has a
weak heart, tf a doctor bad heen
called ten days before he could have
been saved.'
"Another case is of a young man
35 years old, by name Sililcin, who
has a wife a nd two smsll children.
A year ago he untight a cold and,
asking for h doctor's assistance, was
refused. He hut- heen sick H whole
year, and now lies in a dying condition. A few diijx ago they brimght
him medicine ami wanted him to
take it, hut be was afraid and sent
the medicine by a friend to me to
find out what kind of medicine it
was. When I read it. it proved to
be a poisonous liniment.

Immigration Regulations
The new order in council respecting immigration is couched in the
following terms:
"H. R. H. the governor-general in
council nnder and by (virtue of tbe
provisions of subsection 3 of section
38 of the Immigration act, 9-10 Edward VII, and in view of the present overcrowded conditions of .the
labor market in British Columbia, is
pleased to make tbe following order:
'From aod after the date hereof
and until after the 31st day of
March, 1914, tbe landing at any
port of entry in British Columbia
hereinafter specified of' any immigrants of any of tbe following classes
namely, artisans, laborers (skilled or
unskilled) sball be, and tbe same is
hereby prohibited,'"
The order then specifies all of tbe
ports of entry iu British Columbia
coming under its terms.
Granby's November Report
The Granby Mining,Smelting and
Power company treated 106,173
tons of ore at its plant in Grand
Forks in November, according to tbe
monthly report. Of tbis 103,408
tons came from the company's
properties at Phoenix, and the remaining 2705 tons was custom material, a Urge part of it from mines
at Republic. The blister copper
shipments aggregated 1,944,145
pounds for tht period, well within

Rule of the Road
That the rule of the road in British Columbia be altered so tbat traf
fie should proceed on tbe right side
of tbe road instead of the left, was
one of the radical suggestions made
by the grand jury in closing their
work at the assizes in Vancouver. If
tbe rule were changed, say tbe jury,
the regulations of British Columbia
would tben be the same as in the
majority of otber provinces.

Revolt Among the Doukhobors
If Nicholas Shakov, tho Moscow
capitalist and philanthropist, who is
in Canada on a visit to the Dnukho-
bor settlements in Saskatchewan and
Hritish Columbia, is not mistaken in
his belief, the reign of Peter Veregiu
is Hearing its close and the Doukho
bors of this province will by their
own efforts effect the reforms in their
community which should have been
brought about hy tho government
iiinie than a year ago. Mr. Shakov
says that the Doiikhohors are entirely
dissatisfied with their leader and
would, in his opinion, throw off the
yoke immediately and break up the
clan so far as common property is con
cerned. It is to be hoped that events
will justify his belief, but it is hardly
likely that Mr. Veregin will step
down without making a vigorous ef'
fort to retain his authority. Ho has
one weapon which may be used with
powerful effect. All tho property of
the community is vested in himself,
and for a time at least he might make
it unpleasant for those who tried to
oust him.
It is unlikely, of course, that the
courts would uphold his right to own
ership, especially as it is clearly understood that he is merely the trustee
for tho community, but it is tiie duty
of the authorities to seo tliat he does
not intimidate his countrymen into
subserviency by the threat to dispossess them of the lands which have
been made fruitful by their labor. -

The annual provincial poultry
ebow opened in the opera house in
this cilyTu-sdiy and will continue
until tomorrow night. The weather
during the week has been ideal for
tbe occasion. Tbere are ahout 130
entries, representing over 1200 exhibits of poultry and pet stock. A
great deal of disappointment is felt
because there are no exhibits from
some of the coast cities. The fancy
stock exhibited from interior points,
however, is of an exceptionally fine
quality, being tbe pick of birds exhibited at local shows tboroughout
the province. The show was opened
in form on Thursday morning with
addresses by Mayor Fripp and
others. While tbe exhibition bas
been liberally patronized by local
people, the attendance outside
points has not come up tbe expectations.
Wednesday evening about sixty
poultry fanciers and citizens attended a banquet given by tbe local
poultry association in tbe Davis
hall. In tbe absence of President
F. W. Lang, Vice President J A.
McCallum presided. In his opening address tbe chairman referred
to the progress in poultry raising
made in the valley during the past
few years. After tbe foast to "The
King," E. Kale proposed a toast to
the American Poultry association-
He Mfeired to this organization as
the parent poultry associations of
the west, and advocated closer ties
between it and the British Columbia association. VV. M. Higgs, the
first president of the British Colnni-
bia a.-Hnciatinii, responded, "The
British Columbia Poultry Associa
tion" was proposed by G, Horstead
J. R. Terrv, secretary of tbe at-sn-
ciation, in responding, went into
figures showing the rapid growth
of tbe organization during the short
time it bas been in existence. W.
R. Pulton proposed "The Grand
Forks Show, 1913," and A. S. McKim and W. IC. Huddcn responded
A. D. Morrison proposed the toast lo
the judges, und C. A. I lines replied.
E. N. Burker, one of the judges
here, and practically the only representative Irom Alberta, spoke of the
friendly relations existing between
the two provinces. "The City of
Grand Forks" was proposed by J.
McMullen, of Maple Ridge, and was
responded to by Fred Clark. E. F
Law and H. E, Upton responded to
tbe toast, "The Ladies." Tbe music
for the occasion was furnished by
McLeod's orchestra, and James West
supplied the good things to eat.

long lime to discover that they

Describing Gout
A well-known clubman in the smoking roomthe other evening gave Bome
of his fellow-members a picturesque
description of the gout.
You He In bod, he said, with the
gouty foot stretched out, and you feel
as though the sole of It was pressed
against the bars of a red-hot fire. In
Uie middle of the furnace ts a fellow
with a gnn loaded to the muzzle with
red hot needles. Presently he fires
the gun at your foot and you feel the
red-hot needles travel up your leg
and come out at the knee, not all at
once, but like the animals went Into
the Ark, two by two. When the last
couple of needles have finished the
course yoti find yourself sweating with
fear, and wondering how long lt will
he before the fellow fires the gun
again. Presently you find he Is under
contract to fire It every few minutes,
and you get ready for Uie discharge.
But you can never be said to get accustomed to it, because the blackguard loads it with a hew kind of red-
hot ueedle. every time, nnd sometimes
adds half-a-dosen red-hot cork-screws
and that's gout.

An Avaricious Woman
A woman wbo carried love of money
to an Incredible extreme was Lady
Margaret Jardlne, sister of thc first
Marquis of Queensbury. Although her
husband was a rich man, Lady Margaret would actually carry foot passengers across the lltlle river Annan
tor a half penny*,'and whenever there
| was a fair or market day Bhe would sit
Ion the banks of tive stream all day long
waiting for customers. She usually
wore rags to save ter clothes, but on
the rare occasions when ehe visited
anywhere she packed up a few decent
garments, which she slipped on hefore
entering the house, exchanging them
for her dirty oneB when leaving.

Ths Word 'Picnic'
Few people know the original meaning ot the word 'picnic'   It.is to bs
(ound set out In The London Times of
a hundred yeara ago.
A picnic supper consists of a variety of dishes. The subscribers to tbls
entertainment bave a bill of fare presented to them, with a number against
each dish. The lot which he draws
obliges him to furnish the dlsb marked against It, which he either takea
with htm in bla carriage or sends by
a servant. The proper variety is preserved by the talent, of the maltre
d'hotel, wbo forms the bill ot fare. As
the cookery Is furnished by so many
peoplo ot fashion, eacb strives to excel, and thus a picnic supper not only
gives rise to much pleasant mirth, but
generally can boast ot the refinement

Driven From the System by Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills
The* sufferer from rheumatism who
has not gone about curing himself In
the right way must expect a return of
the tortm-a with every change to cold
or damp weather. It Is not tbe
change tn tbe weather that causes the
rheumatism, but lt does start the aches
and pains. Rheumatism is a deep-
seated dlsorde*- of the blood. You
cannot possibly cure It with outward
application-; ot hot.fomentations as so
many people In their Ignorance of the
real cause at the trouble try to do.
Rheumatism can only be driven out
of the system by driving out the poisonous acid ln the blood. This can
only be done by making the blood supply rich, red and pure.    It is in this     .    _
way that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure out the parasite,
rheumatism, even after other remed-! -
lea have failed. These Pills make
rich, red blood, they go right to the
root of the trouble, and tbe pains and
aches are driven from the system and
will not return t the blood supply Is
kept pure. Tbat.' the whole secret
of curing rheumatism, and It you are
a sufferer begin to cure yourself to-day
by taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Among the many sufferere from rheumatism who have been cured by this
medicine Is Miss Mary D. Kelly, South

four-year-old daughter to a photographer. The little one could not be
made to sit still. The camera-man
was as nice and eiiave as he could be,
and called the child all the sweet, endearing names he could think of,

World Beaters
565 straight and 98 per cent for
over 4000 targets are records made

that have never been approached by
any other gun. When it is remembered that shooters of the greatest skill
are dally giving demonstrations of the
shooting qualities of tlie m..ny different makes of guns, but have yet beer
unable to equal these records, lhe only
conclusion that can be formed ls that
no other make of shotgun has the
pattern, penetration and accuracy
that the Winchester has. This conclusion ls being confirmed almost
dally by tho results ot tlio different
trap shooting tournaments throughout
the country. A gun's performance at

The coast papers now engaged in a fruitless endeavor
to discover how the huge surplus reported to have been in
the provincial treasury less
than a year ago has so mysteriously vanished, might tind
a valuable clue if they will go
to the trouble of taking a census of the government officials
and employees. Nearly every
other man one meets in the
streets nowadays is in the
employ of the province. There
are inspectors of every im-
aj:iable commodity—inspectors of inspectors, road bosses,
ro id employees, and an army
of various kinds of warden <
and ■ itlier ollieials. The stage
has nearly been reached where
the man who works and pays
taxes has to support one
It is not too early to commence to take a census of the
available mayoralty and aldermanic candidates. Grand
Forks will need good civic
officials for the coming year,
because it will be our growing time. We want broad-
minded men—men who will
endeavor o advance the interests of every section of the
city, and not men wedded fo
one of the many cliques that
still survive pioneer days, nor
men tied to the apron strings
of any religious sect or secret
society. We need honest men
who will give a good, clean
administration, without becoming so puritanical that
to indulge in a smile on the
Lord's aay will land the offender in the city bastile.
There should be moderation
and common sense to all
things. Let us ,have officials
with good judgment, and who
are not afraid to exercise it.
lhe watchword for 1914
should be "Forward."
Ok course it was a foregone
conclusion that the Conserva
tive candidate should win
in the Islands. He was
nominated by the government
machine and elected by the
road bosses. It is gratifying
to learn, however, that the
Liberal candidate polled a
large vote. Had ue been
elected he might nave asked
the government many embarrassing questions from the opposition benches—we were on
the point of writing it bench.
For instance, he might have
wanted to know why it should
be necessary to float a new
loan in London, what has become of the large surplus, and
why a Victoria newspaperman
should have been given $45,-
000 for which no accounting
has yet been made.
We are thoroughly disgusted with the hypocritical
fellow who poses as a public
spirited citizen merely as a
shield for lining his own pockets. Nearly every town has
some of this species.
The death knell of the ama-
tenr athlete appears to have
sounded all over Canada. We

The Lincoln Highway
Toronto, Ont—A. J. H. Ekharflt, of
107 Niagara street, has written a let-
.ter to W. G. Robertson, secretary of
the Ontario Motor League bere, In
which he urges to assist In the building of the Lincoln Highway, sending
contributions to the national headquarters ln Detro t, Michigan, because be declares, the Lincoln Highway will beneflt Canadians far more
than residents ln many sections of
the United States.
"I am wrUng the-, lines," says
Mr. Ekhardt, "to inform you that I
have received from tbe Lincoln Highway Association a circular asking for
(5 each 'from motor car owners to
belp build a hlghwaj from the Atlantic to the Pacific and asking: Will
you help? " This I: a worthy enterprise. I di not think there is a Canadian but who would appreciate making a trip from the East to the Pacific Coast ove. this highway. I myself

Outside of thr.l I appreciate the opportunity to subscribe, to a fund In
memory of such a grand man as Abraham Lincoln, who was, to my way of
thinking, one of the greatest English
speaking mon ever born, the man who
abolished slavery in America. Think
how Canadians will appreciate this
Highway Automobile owners In the
Southern States, or Michigan or Minnesota have no more right to subscribe to tho highway than Canadians. Another reason why Canadians
should appreciate this high way lt
because it will be impossible for Canada to build a motor highway with
the rough country to contend with between Toronto and Winnipeg, conditions that are not the same ln tbe
United States.
I would like to Bee the Lincoln
Highway proposition brought to the
attention of tlie different motor clubs
i of Canada and I teel confident the
Canadian people will look upon this
subject .n a very generous manner.
Canadians will be much oloser to this
great highway than the average citizen of the United States. •' am writing as a Canadian ot the sixth generation, born wltbtn 18 miles of Toronto.

The Jest That
It Ended With an Unexpected
Ellison had sometimes Imagined what
"might bare been" had Mllllcent Waring been otber than the only child of
a multimillionaire—what would bare
been, rather, fur be would bare encompassed ben ten and earth to accomplish It, ami In bis Inmost heart he had
felt tbat tbe accomplishing would not
havo been difficult.
At times wild pictures had presented
thomselves of the possibility of tbe
benstly money taking tbo proverbial
wings,'opening for him tbo gates to
paradise, but In his saner moments he
derided such fancies, for wltb Mr. Waring to tbe fore there was not the slightest probability of such nn occurrence.
Instead, he bad arrived at a condition
where tbe wings were a necessity to
himself If he would retain n rag of
self respect. This cherished self respect wus suffering considerably now
In tbe yielding tbat had brought him
back, and ho bad sternly limited bim-
self to a week, cveu whllo calculating
how often be might contrive to seo ber
in tbe tlmo without too greatly transgressing convention.
He was hurrying to his hotel to make
himself presentable for-an immediate
call when, as he whipped Into the
broad, main avenue, a sight presented

blow tn tho face. Leaning limply
against a doorway, lie stared, muttering, "Impossible. Impossible!"
Ills wildest Imaginings had materialised before his eyes, but ho scornfully
rejected tbo suggested explanations of
his reason, repeating tgtiln and again,
He was unconscious of the passing
throng and too deeply shocked and absorbed to feel surprise wben a bind
clipped him opon tbe shoulder and a
hearty voice cried: "Hello, old man!
When did you blow In?"
Ellison seised the speaker ind drew
him around the corner.
"Fred." he demanded. "Is tbst -Miss
Ulllicent Waring? My eyes tell me to,
bnt I cannot believe them."
"Sure, that's Miss Wiring."
"But- but—good    heavens,    whit's
ihe doing In the confectionery shop?"
-    ''Selling, same at other sbopkocpe/s."
"But why? Ot course I tee sbe It

"Necessity, I suppose, tame ts tbe

winking at a newo-aier over Ellison's

"Better moderate yeur emotion, Ellison." the newcomer advised. Indicating a bluecoat wbo wat regarding
them suspiciously.
"Of course, boys"-Ellison's voice

"Why not? Couldn't old man Waring come a financial cropper, tame at

"The world could come to an end,"
Ellison Jeered, but bit heart bad tet

"Comes to an end every day, dear
boy, for those money kings when their

"Tou bet!" exclaimed oot or another

Sundry sly winks and nods were exchanged by the four young fellows, acquaintances to whom Ellison bad forgotten to give a greeting.
"Where's Mr. Wiring?" ho asked.
"Oh, he's aronnd. He't plncky. He'll
pnll It off again some time In the near
future, I reckon."
"She's pulling tbem In by the handful, too,"«tttd Hughes. "Sbe seems a

Ellison turned a furious face npon

"I suppose that's tbe way the world

Tho four rascals burst Into exuberant delight, digging each otber In the
ribs and chuckling hllarously tt he

Ellison had no coherent thought it

thst the barrier between tbem wu re
moved dized him. But toon ht began
to turn tblngs over In bis mind, to even
jonstfer the possibility of bis own

before, now serving as a foundation
for a new beginning on whicb Mr.
Waring might build. The other, the

Having at last adjusted himself
somewhat to the new conditions, he
felt that be conld trust himself to see

was little opportunity just then for
words, but there was a humorous yet
tender glint In ber eyes as sbe occasionally glanced at bis earnest, preoccupied face while she served a bunch
of school children.
Tbo four conspirators let ber Into
the secret and departed to spread
broadcast the jest, the prank upon Ellison, whose sentiment toward Miss
Waring was nn open secret. And presently, by twos and threes and in
squads, her old friends una* former associates began to saunter by. Bome
purchased of her witb simpering patronage, some wltb a cold nod of recognition, wbile others passed wltb

Hit stammering speech was Interrupted by tbe laughing, bubbling
crowd of conspirators, eager to witness bit discomfiture.

Unheeding tbe twirl, Miss Waring
calmly began counting money from the
