Wetmore, chairman of  the Indian Commission, ..found the  work of-the Commission too 'strenuous  for ti man of his advanced years and  I has chosen the present oil" spe.llin the  Commissions work as an opportune  time Lo tender his resignation..  The work of the Indian Commission  will" not"-be in any way delayed by  reason of the resignation of Chairman  Wetmore, it was stated today. The  commission has brought its labors,for  the present year to' sucha state that  what remains to be done prior to the  spring excursions into the north to  meet the Indians-there,' can be handled  through the oflice established under  the charge of Secretary Gibbons.  Tiie Indian commission since its  formation early in Lhe year has corn  pleLed an extended programme of  work, visiLing reserves measuring in  area over 3S(5,000 acres, holding sev^  eiiLy-nine formal meetings with a  great many niore informal sessions,'  taking 18,000 pages of evidence and  making eighteen interim reports.  The commission . was formally con-;  stituted on May 19th last, and on that  date proceeded to complete organization and, hold daily -meetings. The  commissioners approached the work  entrusted to them with full appreciation of the responsibilities entailed  and with a determination that in this  final adjustment of the long-vexed  Indian lands question of British Columbia such a, basis of settlement  might be arrived at as would assure  not only development of independence  and self maintaining ability of the Indian people^ aVid their adoption of  higher- staiidai'ds of progressive civilization, but' coincidentally the reflective promotion of improved'conditions  generally throughout this portion of  the Dominion.  Eighteen interim reports have thus  far been presented by the commission  to the jointly interested governments,  those covering nineteen applications  by railway companies for rights-of-  eriLry upon Indian reserves lands within British Columbia, one presented by  the depjirtinenLof marine and fisheries  of Canada in connection with lighthouse establishment, two in relation  to projected public works of the Province of British Columbia/one incidental to desirable public services of municipal organization and two general.  Acting under the concluding paragraph of the order-in-couiicil the commission has made exhaustive inquiries  and examinations in the������������������course of its  meetings with the Indians, with the  object of suggesting such changes in  the. future policy to be adopted by the  Government of the Dominion in the  conduct of the affairs of the Indian inhabitants of British Columbia as, iri  the opinion of the commission, should  result in the more rapid development  in civilization and in material prosperity of the Indians, the recommendations of the commission in which respect will be embodied in its final report.  At four o'clock on  Thursday morning last an attempt was made by some  party or parties to  enter the premises  of the Bank of British North America.  At  present  there  is only one of the  staff sleeping on   the premises   in  a  room in rear of the- office, and this fact  had   evidenLly  been   known   by   the  would-be till-tapper.     W. K. Pollock,  the teller, was awakened but does not'  know  what   particular thing it was  that awakened him.     Immediately he  heard the lower sash of one of the side  windows of the office.open.   The 100m  in which   he slept was in darkness but  there was a light  burning in the front  office and the door was open from his  bedroom  into  the office.      The   first  thing he saw was a leg coining through  the window and his first thought'was  to  shout out   "What  do~"you   want  there?"  when the leg was withdrawn  and Lhe  burglar apparently made off.  Then he saw  that the big arc light on  the street iu front of the Bank  had  been turned   off, so that he could  not  see  how  many  were on the  outside.  Under the .circumstances lie did not  deem it wise'to venture out until daylight,  and people going past  to work-  in the early morning saw the ladder  leaning up againsL-Lhe building along-,  side the window.  The best thing for him to have done  of course" would have been for him to  take a shot at Lhe leg. Of course it  might have opened up hostilities and  started up some shooting in return,  biit a mained leg would-have been convenient for tracking purposes.  It is.always easy to  be wise after  the event,  and many will' dictate the  course to be followed who might not  have done a bit different  themselves.  Failing to shoot, Mr. Pollock did the  next best thing, for reasons which will  be  better appreciated  by those  who  saw the position of the ladder and the  window  through  which  an  extrance  was being effected. There was a flower  box   that ran  nearly the full width of  the window,   balanced on  the window  sill on the.outside and it .was a ticklish  piece of balancing  co get in the window  over it.    The  man who  was balancing on one leg on  the ladder outside while the other leg was trying to  get a footing on Lhe inside,  was in no  position  to  do any gun  play just at  that    particular    moment,   and    this  doubtless accounts for the fact, that  there was no shooting in reply to Pollock's  challenge.     Any'man who will  attempt a job of that kind is certainly  prepared  to shoot and take  the consequences,   j In addition to turning off  the sire-light on the outside he had the j  backdoor fastened with a rope to prevent escape of anyone, by that means.'  This  would give some ground for belief that there may only have been one  man  on the job,  and it also would indicate  that there was no intention to  attempt drilling the safe  but to work  on the teller and compel him t give up  the combination.  One result of it will be to increase  the vigilance and also to strengthen  the premises against entry by burglars.  MORE CONTRACTS LET  Twenty-four   miles    of   Station    Work  Started on Joint Section of Hope Line  OROVILLE OUT.OF LUCK'  Mr. .T. H. Kennedy, assistant chief  engineer for the V, 'V. & E. Railway,  returned last night from a five-weeks'  trip Lo Eastern Uanada and the Middle  Western States. While in St. Paul  he conferred with Mr. B. Budd, chief  engineer for the GreaL Northern Railway with regard to construction work  on the new-sections of  the V. V. &.I3.  Although he did not have an opportunity 011 his recent tour to make a  trip over the. sections of the V. V. <fc  E. line through the Hope Mountain  district, Mr. Kennedy-said that reports  from the construction camps indicate  that- good progress is being made  with the operations.  Two steam shovels are at work on  the Otter Lake section and a force'  of 200 men is "engaged in grading.  With reference to Lhe portion of the  Hope Mountain line being built hy  the. Kettle Valley Railway for Lhe  joint use of the two lines, he said that  he had leceived word of the awarding of contracts tostationmen'for an  e'ighteen-niile and a six-mile strelch.  He intends to inspect Lhe route next  week.���������Province.  Just When    They Thought   the   Town  Clear of Small-pox Another  Case is Imported  CONSIDERING THEPOWER SITE  As we go topress a conference is be  ing held oil the river to decide finally  upon the site for the new power darn  and the'situation of the flume and  head-gate. Mr. W. B. Dickson,- vice-  president of the Hedley Gold Mining  Company, and T. Walter Beam arrived this forenoon for consultation with  Mr. Jones and the engineers, and on  Saturday last Mr.-M. K. Rodgers also  'arrived to be. present. The plans for  the.'site upon which a start- had been  iuade were made by Mr. Mitchel, of  the engineering" firm' of Canavan and  Mitchel of Victoria, and it is to decide  finally, upo'n-the acceptance or otherwise of those plans that the present  conference is being - held. Another  engineer, Mr. Matheson, of Vancouver, has'been called iu for consultation  and arrived on Tuesday. Mr. iYL.  Merrill, president of the company is at  the hot springs in Arkansas and was  not in shape to make the trip or he  too would be present at this time.  ACCIDENT IN MINE  QUIT ASKING EXTENSIONS  Railways Building in British Columbia at  Last See That Work is Their  Best Play  The arsonetles have begun their  work in Britain again, to get oven  with somebody for jailing Madam  Punkhursfc.  "No companies now building railway lines in this province under agree  merits with the government have yet  asked for a day's extension of time,"  declared Sir Richard McBride today.  "We have no reason to expect either  that any company will approach us  for an extension. The agreements and  policies of the government- covering  railway matters are being carried out  practically to the letter. I may say  that it is the intention of the executive to close up ,-tlI the points affecting  railway matters by the end of the  year. This decision will include everything connected with the Songhees  reserve railway terminals."  The Premier expressed gratification  at a statement made to him by Mr.  D'Arcy Tate that it was the intention  of the P. G. E., shortly, to employ a  large force of men on terminal improvements at Newport.'  After a long spell of   providential  immunity from mrshap of any kind an  accident occurred in  the Nickel Plate  on Thursday of last week.     A mucker  named   David Lawley   was   clearing  away, muck iu one  of Lhe stopes and  working with a dull pick when he was  unfortunate enough  to strike  apiece  of powder which exploded. . The most  serious and painful  injury attending  the mishap was to his eyes'.'and it may  require some tirrie to tell whether the  injury is is likely to be permanent, but  the doctor has good'hopes of him pulling out all  right.    He  was   brought  down  here to  the hospital  where Dr.  McEwen   looked  after  him for a few  days and got him   in shape to be sent  out  to an   eye specialist and   he was  taken out the  beginning of this week.1  The doctor thinks it must have been a  small .piece of powder or  the   injury  done  would    have  been    greater, for  there  was very little laceration from  broken .rock   and   only a few   small  pieces  found about   the eyes.    In this  case  it is  possible  that he  had  been  pretty: near the blaze and some of the  trouble miiy be from that source.    Before he left  the power to distinguish  light had come back to one of. the eyes  and it is' quite possible that both eyes  may be saved. ���������  Oiovillehasceitaiiily been up against  a hard run of luck in connection with  Lhe small-pox outbreak. For much of  the trouble Lhey have of course them?  selves pr their health officers Lo blame,  but nevertheless it was hard luck for  them to have had the pest dumped  down on them in the first place. And  now after the health authorities had  been aroused to some effort to rid Lhe  town and Lhey were, congratulating  themselves that the trouble was nearly over, another case is brought in.  Exaggerated reports have been in circulation, but they are not believed b'y  the public generally. The policy of  concealment which was employed at  first was a mistaken one altogether,  and is in a measure responsible for  much of the exaggeration. The disease has never been epidemic in the  town nor anything approaching it.  audit" the truth and nothing but the  truth had been given out there would  have been much less chance for rumor.  We believe Lhe following paragraph  from the Oroville Gazette regarding  the latest outbreak is in every way  reliable. In its last i.---sue the Gazette  says:  "Monday  evening   Joe Farran   appeared on the streets  broken out with  smallpox.     He arrived  Monday oven-,  ing on the train from the south, boarding the train aL Omak.   Health Officer  Beale at once rushed  Farran   to Lhe  pest house, where he will remain until  in a condition to be discharged.     This  is an  exceedingly'unfortunate revival  of the smallpox bugbear,  coming as it  does at a time when the last victim of  the disease   had   entirely   recovered,  with   no  new cases developed.    Like  the  first case  in town this one comes  from a distance,  and Oroville is com-  ���������pelled   to  bear the  brunt of the patient's presence,  not only for the expense of caring for' the victim,   but  mtistsufFer from the .exaggerated reports that are sure to follow.     Where  Farran   contracted . the disease, is not  -known.     It is known that he boarded  -the-passenger, carat Omak,  and considering his condition tesidents of chaL  place must have been exposed.   ODhers  were   exposed   on   the   train   and  in  town.     The  passenger  car- has   been  fumigated,  and every precaution will  be taken here to confine the disease to  the single case,    It will be. a fortnight,  however,    before   it   can   be    known  whether others  have been effected by  thc germs."          ma.   PAT WELCH RECOVERING  Railway . Builder  in   Serious   Condition  Following* Operation  The firm of Foley, Welch & Stewart  had a narrow   escape of   losing   t*rie  most prominent member,   when  the  noted     railway: contractor     Patrick  Welch   was declared  by.Lhe surgeons  in Seattle to  be in a  very precarious  condition.     He was suddenly-taken ill  and after a time the doctors diagnosed  his case to be that of ruptured appen-  dix.     An'operation   was regarded im-  peralive and Lhe weakening from the  malady itself left his  constitution in  ill  shape   to stand   the shock  of the  operation.     So  serious  was  the'igase  regarded   that  members of his family  were  hurried  from  Spokane.    Latest  reports   state a   turn   for  the  better  and all chances in his favor for speedy  recovory.  MINING NOTES.  EXPECTING ANOTHER  Fear Repetition of Rock Slide Disaster  at Frank  Moosejaw, Sask., Dec. 7.���������-Passengers arriving from the west 'today  say there is alarm felt at Frank, Alta.,  over the large crack in the top of the  mountain, and a repetition of the disaster of some ten years ago is feared.  They say the Dominion government  has .men watching the crevice to give  warning should it widen. The town  of Frank now has less than 40 population, the marjoi-ity of the people having moved to Blairmore.  An-item, appearing in  the Nelson  Daily News Tuesday stated  that the  Standard mine would  pay two $50,000  dividends  this month.    When asked  about   the   statement,    Mr.    Aylard,  manager of the  mine and one. of the  largest shareholders, said he had heard  nothing about it, but would not object  to receiving the extra dividend.   With  $50,000 this month .the Standard will  .have, paid .in dividends-$1,025,000 on a  capitalization of $2,000,000.   Next-year  the mine'should pay $100,000 monthly  in dividends,  possibly .'more when the  large ore body is reached  in the  No.  .7 tunnel.     As previously stated in the  Record," it would not be unreasonable  to'expect the Stiindard to pay $5,000,  000 in dividends from ore above the  No. 7 level.���������Slocan Record.

THE HINDU PROBLEM  Plan  to  Plant  Colonies in  The Soudan  THE TELL-TALE PAST  Since   his defeat  at the polls -in 1911  Hon. W. S. Fielding has been practically out of-Canadian polities. Whether  it'may form  pa it of the  plan   of his  party to provide for him   a seat in the  House   that he may he heard again in  the   House  of   Commons   at   Ottawa  where he was first brought by Laurier  in ISO'i,,  we do not know,   but the fact  that  he has  accepted   the   position of  editor.of  Lhe new Liberal organ  to be  started in Montreal shows that lie lias  made   up his  mind to  take a.  hand in  Canadian   politics   once   more.      The  latest  heard from   liim was his   letter  . in the London paper in which he holds  ' up to  the.people  of Great Britain the  Canadian  constitution   as Lhe  goal to  which   they  should  all incline  as the  panacea for Home Rule  and the other  Gordian   knots into  which legislation  , over there  has been tied.     He forgot,  however, that in his younger mischief  making days  as a Canadian politician  he did   not always   think as   highly of  Lhe  Canadian constitution  as he now  does.     Of this  fact he  is  very  forcefully and  effectively   reminded by the  editor of the  News-Advertiser  in   an  editorial'headed "Belated Testimony'  which we reproduce herewith, for it is  of  historical   interest and   should   be  . carefully noted  by the.  younger students  of Canadian  history and Canadian politics.    The editorial states:  "Mr. Fielding s letter to the London  "Times"   commending  the  Canadian  system of federal home rule to the. imitation   of  Great Britain   will be read  'with special interest  by one Canadian  ' now residine; in England.    Sir Charles  Topper   will recall   the  Confederation  'battle   in   Nova.  Scotia, and   Lhe   part  tat'.*!!   against  union   by  Lhe  Halifax  ���������'Chronicle."   Mr. Fielding was then a  member of the stall", but not the editor.  In later years, as editor,   Mr. Fielding  denounced   the   Canadian   Confederation and demanded its repeal. Twenty  years  after   Union,   Mr.   Fielding,   as  premier of Nova, Scotia, started a new  repeal   movement,  going so  far as to*  dissolve  the legislature  on that issue.  He  was sustained  by the electors in  this   appeal,   but as  Now Brunswick  and  Prince Edward Island  refused to  join in tho movement, and as the Conservatives,  led in  Nova Scotia  by Sir-  Charles Tapper, swept the province in  the federal election of 1887,  Mr. Fielding  gave up the  project.    Though he  gave the above reasons for abandoning the movement, a quarter of a century ago,  Mr. Fielding did  not admit  that  he was   himself convinced.    We  rather think  that  his   letter to   the  "Times" is the first testimony of Mr.  Fielding in favor of the union of the  provinces, of British North America".  The development of the Hindu question in British Columbia, is being carefully watched in official quarters at  Ottawa. IL is realized LhaL the judgment of Chief Justice Hunter may  tend to create new difficulty for the  Indian and Imperial authorities in assuaging the opinions of natives of  India who knowing nothing of Dominion self-government look Lo the King  to secure them equal rights in all  parts, of the Dominions. A most hopeful solution for .South Africa, and per  haps, also fur BtiLish Columbia is now  under consideration by Imperial and  Indian executives. Tt is to initiate a  colonization scheme iu Sudan for Indians who refuse to submit Lo conditions- which the Dominion Governments deem necessary.  South African journals suggest the  immediate appointment of a small  commission by the representative governments concerned, lo inquire into  the matter and submit a definite proposal for the removal and colonization  elsewhere, of British Indians from I he  British Dominions.  What is especially noteworthy is the  refusal of British ministets or responsible British press to i-ounl.eimnee the  Indian demand thai Lhe. Imperial Government interfere with South Africa's  management of ils own affairs. All  the Imperial Government i.s prepared  to do is to make representations and  assist in the finding of a. solution  agreeable to Imperial conditions. This  is all the more striking because a .blue  book, just issued, gives prima .facie  reason to believe that British Indians  in South Africa have been subjected  to semi-servile conditions. The Times  is most outspoken on the rights of  self-guveriiing Dominions.    It says:  "We    must   disassociate   ourselves  completely from  Sir M. M.  Bhowna-  gee's  attempt   to   revive  Lhe  general  controversy regarding the. exclusion of  Indians 'from the Dominions.     Every  community has Lhe right to select the  material   upon which   its future  is   to  depend.     Indians  who claim   free admission   to all parts of the  Empire in  the name  of British  citizenship only,  prove their total lack of understanding  of   the  principles   on   which   British  citizenship is based.     No Englishman  can   claim   to   enter  a   Dominion   in  which   he is  considered   undesirable.  Englishmen   are actually  rejected by  hundreds   by    British    governments  every  year.       India   cannot   ask   for  privileges which even   Englishmen-are  denied, and rightly denied.    Tliey can  only ask that   there be no  discrimination shown  against them which is offensive to their race.     That is all that  the South African Indians have claimed in this dispute.    Those who reverse  the order and  claim that which they  themselves  have  abandoned  do their  cause inreparable harm."  What was possibly the last golf  match of the present season (and it  was played wlien December was a  week old which speaks well for the  Siniilkaiueen climale in the piesent  year of grace) was a four ball foursome  in which S. IS. Hamilton and P. Murray  played against XV. C. Martin and A.  .Megraw. The former were, the challengers, but viclory went with Lhe defenders on a, score "of four up and three  to play. Of the IS holes played the  defenders won nine and the challengers two and the other seven holes  were halved. 'I.'he fiist round witnessed some rather ragged playing, each  of the players in turn meeting his  Waterloo in some particular hole or  other among the many score-wrecking  holes for which the Hedley course is  noLed. The second round was more  snappy and although lhe challengers  put up,a much stronger game than in  the first round thoy had a corresponding betterment on the part of the. defenders to meet, and were put up  against a hard score to overcome. The  defciideis' best, ball on the first round  showed an aggregate of 50 strokes  while the challengers took 50. In the  second round the defenders' best ball  aggregate was brought down to -1-1, or  ju-t two above bogey, and the challengers' best ball was 50.  77 Years in Business.

According to the annual report of tiie Indian Department there  is a general improvement in the conditions of life among the natives.  Their cattle industry is increasing,  they are gradually becoming more  self-supporting and the liquor traffic  has been largely suppressed. In the  West it is-stated that those who hitherto have been charges upon the Gov-  erment will, in a year or so, be wholly  able to look affcr themselves, Their  health is improving,-due to an avoidance of overcrowding in houses. The  log hut is being replaced by properly  constructed dwellings. To these effects  of an ameiliorating civilization can  doubtless be traced the fact that as  contrasted with a number of previous  years there is a slight increase in the  total Indian population of Canada  noted during 1912-1913.

"OUR MUTUAL  FRIEND"  When   this   expression   is   used   some  Canadians in stantly think  of Charles  Dickens' much-loved masterpiece.  Others  associate   the words   with The  Mutual   Life  Assurance  Company   of  Canada, and with reason, for  It is  the  only   "Mutual Life Insurance  Company   incorporated  in the  Dominion.

He is going to install a regulation English  billiard table which will be a credit to  the town. He expects the patrons of  this noble game will be able to show  their skill next week.  The moving pictures last week in  the Star Theatre were several notches  above the average. The animated  weekly _filin series was of special interest and in the dramatized piece ,;A  secret of the Sea" there was a new lot  of artists taking the parts that-were  very good actors, and "good lookers"  too.  Oh Thursday morning last Constable  Sproule received word to look out for  a couple of Indians, Johnny and Francis  Quoltierre, who had escaped from the  pen in 'Keremeos where they wen-  being held on a cattle killing case.  "They did not come this way however,  and a day later they came hack and  gave themselves up.  Mr. I. L,' Merril, President of the  Hedley Gold Mining Company had an  attack of rheumatism which took him  to the hot springs in Arkansas.

If there is any golf to be had  down there at the hot springs the  rheumatism will have to be pretty  bad" to keep him from having his  share.  Passengers have remarked that the  G. N. It. cars on this- branch were  smelling very strongly of formaldehyde. It is a very good fault. It shows  ���������at nil events that the railway company  is disposed' to   use  what  preventives'  :- they can to stop the spread of disease,  and no passenger can reasonably object to that. Precautions of that kind  should be a good aid in the removal of  quarantines and there is no money in  ,   a quarantine for the railways.  Shortly before closing down .this'  year's work an the Oregon mineral  claim on Sixteen-Mile Creek they ran  ���������on some of the finest looking ore that  has yet been discovered on the property. The specimen shown us was a  large solid block of ore strongly mineralized with pyrite, chalcopyrite,  bornite and arsenopyrite and also  showing cobalt bloom. The. predominating mineral was chalcopyrite which  appeared to be quite massive and solid  through the block.  Government agent-Hugh Hunter of  Princeton was in town this week on  official business and paid the Gazette  office a call. On provincial matters his  views are sound enough, but when it  comes to Imperial politics his heresy  is most deplorable. Fancy a north of  Ireland man like himself declaring  himself in favor of Asquith's bill for  Home Rule in Ireland which would  give the Iiish parliaiiinent control of  the customs and place loyal Ulster  under the thumb of the Fenian ele-  "-merit in Dublin which refused to allow  Dublin to tender n civic reception to  King George.  ' W. K. Pollock received a parcel  by express the other day that appeared mysterious to him and coming on  the heels of the attempted hold up  was a little tryiuc* on his nerves for  he thought of infernal machines and  like devices to trap the unwary.  When the parcel was opened up it was  found to contain two paws and tail  of the Canadian beaver sent to hirn  from a friend in Saskatoon. Not  being sufficiently conversant with the  Canadian flora and fauna he was still  at a loss to know what it was. The  paws and tail gave evidence that the  animal to which they belonged was a  patriarch in the beaver family.  Mrs. Dickson accompanied her husband on the trip here from New York  and on this her first visit to the Siinikn-  meetr valley she will see what Hedley  looks like in winter It would hardly  be fair, though to try t<i make her  believe, that this is Hedley's usual  winter garb. In slimmer the dress is  gieen and in winter it is often white.  This time, although in the middle of  December, the winter habit is lacking.  Mr. M. K. Rodgers who is in Hedley  for a few days is looking in the very  pink.of condition. His family are living in Los Angeles at present, but he  is likely to be found anywhere that  there is milling cai-iiedon or a likely  prospect to be examined. lie has recently been up at Hidden Creek and is  immensely pleased with the enormous  showings up there, although he does  not place much confidence in the reports that the smelter will be in full  blast at the beginning of January.  Mrs. E. H. Williams returned on  Monday from Princeton where she  had been visiting a few days with Mrs.  MeCnft'ery. She has been very anxious  since her husband left, to learn of his  safe arrival in England. The condition of his eyes for which he had gone  to undergo treatment from a specialist  had become more alarming on the eve  of his departure and she was anxious  to accompany ��������� him if his plans had  permitted of it. Word has since been  leceived teat he reached New York  safely, but his sight is gradually  going.  . A so-called "hard times" dance was  given in Fraternity Hall on Friday  evening last and was largely attended.  It was alleged to have been given by  the-basket-ball club and the proceeds  were to be devoted to the hockey club.  That it was proceeds they were after  and that the social element of the  affair was to he a subordinate consideration was evident from the way in  which the affair was carried out. Good  music was provided and the dance  went on until 3 o'clock  in the  11101-11-  Game warden C. Schissler had E.  E. Burr pulled for killing a. goat while  holding only an ordinary firearms  licence. The informer appears to  have been the Hedley Gazette when  we published the item about the killing of the goat some weeks ago. In  view.of the vagueness in the wording  of the ordinary firearms licence itself  and also in the vagueness and contradiction in the regulation issued under  authority of the Provincial Game  Warden the fine was made a nominal  one of $1.00; for if the killing of the  goat was a violation, the compiler of  the regulations was as much to blame  as the defendant. In reporting the  conviction the Attorney General's  department has been asked for a ruling  in the matter. Taking the Game Act  and the'-regulation's'as they stand,  magistrates would be, justified .in refusing to take any more cases under,  the Act. "  Robert Stevenson  the veteran   and  pioneer was in 'Hedley last week and  visited his properties on the mountain  northeast of the Nickel Plate.    While  not quite as spry as he was a few years  ago he is nevertheless quite hearty and  has lost  nothing  of  the  cheery optimism which has always characterized  him.    It is always interesting to  get  Mr. Stevenson started on the theme of  old times and many an instructive yarn  he can spin of stirring events connected  with   the  early settlement of  the  country  and  of the   men   who  were  the trail blazers.    Some have  accused  him of drawing along  bow  in  these  narrations,   and  while  he  can  tell of  actual occurences that took place nearby that make, the most exciting pages  in Owen Winstar's books appear common-place in comparison,   the Gazette  is not one of  the doubting Thomases  and is prepared  to accept all of these  old-time talcs to be just as he has told  them.    Furthermore  we  feel  pleased  to   be  honored   with   the  confidence.

Only one of the beys, Johnnie 17 years  old, who was the older of the two,  could be identified by these witnesses  as the ones who had sold Mr. Robertson the cow, and he was committed  for trial at the tspring assizes but was  released on $1000 bail. In the case of  the. younger. Francis, who as not positively identified the case w-.is dismissed. There was difference of opinion among the Indians as to who owned the cow.

Cleland, rector  of the Anglican Ohurch Penticton, B.  C The ceremony was performed in  the presence of a few immediate  relatives.  Pierre Alex gave  information  last  week  that led  to  the arrest of two  young    inditms,    named    John    and  Francis Quol tier-re for cattle stealing.  They  were arrested  hy constable Mc-  GulHc   on  Tuesday   the 2nd,   but on  "Wednesday  night broke  jail  and got  clear for  the   time  being,    The   constable on Thursday, after a. hard day's  riding  got  track  of them  near Chopaka,  and   it  is  supposed   that   they  hearing  that  it would   be  but   little  time before, they would be re-arrested,  gave  themselves   up at  the   reserve.  McGuffie then a little later coming on  the scene had them sent back to Keremeos  where  they were  safely lodged  behind the bars once more.    The facts  of the case   that have come out,   up to  the   time  of  writing are  as follows:  Pierre Alex  having lost a cow had a  suspicion   that it  had   been  stolen by  some  one.     He came up to Keremeos  where  he heard  that a  cow had been  sold by two Indian boys, Johnnie and  Francis Quoltier, to Mr. Robertson for  forty dollars  which was  considerably  below  the  value  of  the   animal   and  when  he heard it had been killed he  went to the slaughter house to see the  hide which he claimed  to be that of  his cow.

The Western Branch of the Canadian Mining Institute, met at Sandon  yesterday when an interesting .programme Was presented. One of the  addresses to be given at the meeting  was on the metallurgy of zinc by G.C.  McKenzie of the Mines Branch, Canadian Department of Mines. This  speaker, if we mistake not, will prove  to be George McKenzie who had his  first experience in actual mining in  Camp McKinney in 1899. If so, he is  a brother of II. B. McKenzie, general  manager of the Bank of British North  America. Many of his old McKinney  tillicums of days gone by would like  mightily to meet him again. He and  the late Plinky Warren were college  mates in old Trinity, Toronto, and we  are of impression that George was responsible for the old college nickname  "Plinky" being transported to the  west.
