B.C.  Died January 20th, 1907.  The subject of this brief sketch was  ���������1 Canadian by birth, being born in the  county of Megan tic in the province of  Quebec, on May 1+th, 1852.   He was of  English descent, his father having been  born on a British frigate in the time of  the French Avars, about a century, ago,  and his grand-father commanded one  of Nelson's ships.     His early boyhood  was spent in his native county, but  later the: fainily' moved to Bothwell,  Out., where he adopted engineering as  bis profession, serving apprenticeship  with   a   civil  engineer   in Bothwell.  After working at his -"'profession'" on  eastern railways for a, few years, Mr.  Lanibly left Bothwell,  Out., on May  27th, 1S78, enioute for  British Columbia, traveling via.  San Francisco;<md  eventually reaching New Westminster.    His first work in British Columbia was in the customs of New Westminster, .under Mr. Low.e,..until in the  spring of 1879,  life accepted a position  as assistant engineer under Mr. Hamlin and started for  the  north on railway work.' Leaving Port Essmgton,  June 10th, 1879, his party traveled up  the river for sixteen days until they  reached the  forks of the Skeena and  were engaged in locating railway in  that country, in  the Peace river district and along the Fraser,   being engaged in this for about ten years, when  with the commencement of the movement for securing construction of the  Shuswap & Okanagan, he moved into  the upper Okanagan or Spallumcheeii,.  where his brothers Thomas and Robert were ranching at Enderby.    Shortly after he entered the provincial govern rmen t serv ice,  fi rst as assessor, an d  ifterwards as  recorder.- gold  . ���������.nxCTSZCl.  MEDLEY, B. C.

In the. service, of the- provincial government he'  had been stationed at Enderby, Iio(  Creek, Camp McKinney, Osoyoos and  Fairview, most of the time at the latter two places, coining to Fail-view  from Osoyoos in 1899. He held a commission of Justice of the peace when  only 27 years of age.  In 1897 lie  married Hester  daughter of.- the late Judge  Besides his widow he leaves  dren, the eldest about 9 years old and  the youngest an infant in arms.  ���������   He   was   a   Mason   ol:   some thirty  years standing,   becoming a   member  of the craft in 1S77. and was one of the  charter member of   Enderby   lodge.  He was also a. gunner iu the artillery  at   New   Westminster,   in  the .early  eighties.    It was  in   his   official capacity, during his long and  efficient service for  the government  in   this dis-  j triet,   that  he  was  best  known, and  very few could  have   Iilled  the   position   with   the   skill    and   judgment  I which he. displayed.    Among the early  prospectors were manv whose   respect  for law and order was not of the highest, but in Mr. Lanibly they  found an  officer who  upheld the dignitv of the  law without antagonizing   them, and  they in time learned  to  iind in him a  man in whose probity they could rely  to guard their rights as well  as give  them wise counsel.    In   his  death the  province loses a valuable, civil servant  anil the district a  good   citizen.    His  bereaved  widow   and other  relatives  have the heart-felt svmpathv of all.

There are no people to whom victory  is sweeter than   thoso  invaded  upon  their own soil.    That is perhaps why  the returns on Saturday night were so  acceptable to Shut-ford's supporters in  Hedley.     The   Siniilkameeu   returns,  embracing   all   from   Otter   Flat   to  Okanagan   Falls,  were  known   to  be  sufficient  to decide the matter so far  I as this riding is concerned, and jubilation was the order of the night.    Mr.  Shatford.   who spent the morning in  Hedley, had gone to Keremeos in the  1 afternoon  and was expected to drive  ] back at   the  close of  the  poll.     The  provincial   returns   weie   sufficiently  complete   by   11   o'clock   to  show   the  j decisive character of the victory in the  1 province,   and   then   bedlam ��������� reigned.  A  torch-light procession  entertained  itself and  011-lookers from that until  ' two o'clock in the morning, by which  time Mr. Stratford had returned from  Keremeos.  Speeches were made at intervals in  the Hotel Similkameen, during the  evening, the speaking being entirelv  impromptu. In most of Vases the  speaker was forcibly lifted either on a  table or on the bar, and for the honor  of addressing so enthusiastic, good-  looking and good-natured an audience,  was expected to "set 'em up." The  other hotels were visited bv turns.  HON.   RICHARD   McBRIDE  TlIllICK 1'llKMIKU Ol' JiUIVISIl COUWllUA,  AM) TWICK   l.VIKlItSKI')   1JV   T1IK   l'KOPl.K.  an opponent who  bard as he.

Such circumstances are regretable. and  the less said concerning them the better.  FIRE AT CAMP McKINNEY.  The greater part of the Crimp McKinney hotel was destroyed by fire a  short time ago. The bar is reported  to have been saved. It is reported  that Mr. Cameron intends to rebuild  at once. How they managed to save  the portion containing the bar, when  the rest was burned down, seems a  mystery, as both are heavy log buildings and there was only a space of  about five feet between them.

The nearest  approach to that which we have had  since the. dissolution of the House in  the spring of 1S98 has been the three  and a half years rule under the McBride administration. The. narrowness of the majority upon which the  government, especially during the  first two sessions, carried on the business of the province left the impression that socialistic domination obtained to a more or less degree, although there was really nothing passed which would bear out that supposition except a few objectionable but  minor features in the assessment act.  All people of the province, regardless  of party, felt that a bigger majority  was desirable, and now we have it.  But while narrow majorities were  deprecated, they are by no means an  unmixed evil. They are conducive to  carefulness in the character of the legislation to be introduced, and they afford the very best possible opportunity  for a leader to demonstrate what is in  him. It is under such circumstances  that Premier McBride's qualifications  for leadership stands ont so prominently today, for where is there another  instance in Canada where an administration, had such a task set before it.  When we consider the state of the  provincial finances, at the time they  came into power, the narrowness of  the majority, the warring elements at  work in the house, and the drastic unpopular legislation that was imperative in order to bring order out of  chaos and cause fatness where all was  lean, the wonder is that he could infuse, the necessary courage into his  following to induce them to tackle it,  and carry it through; but he did.  Now, howcrcr, this is all changed.  With a following of at least twenty-  eight, in a house of forty-two members, and with a probability that it  may yet reach twenty-nine or thirty,  giving n. clear majority of from fourteen to eighteen over liberals and socialists    combined,      an  .;1  j the   tiding:   and When   the   field   is j  scanned to note the personnel   of the ;  slain  it is doubtful, whether greater!  credit is due any portion  of  the  gov-;  eminent forces  than  to  the faithful -j  little baud of stand-putters  who stood j  by their guns until the  last  shot  was  fired, and who bowled over one of the  enemy's hardest and craftiest fighters.

EDITORIAL  COMMENTS  Yorky was the only voter kid-napped, but he broke loose.  Those who flopped to be in line with  thenew government fooled themselves.  Both sides are busy figuring out the  liars, and as a rule they are generally  able to place them.  Yorky says that the British at  Waterloo waited for Blucher, but that  Shatford's men didn't wait for Blucher  but finished the job up for themselves.  W. A. McLean was a stronger man  than Smith Curtis, taking 41% of the  total vote polled, while Smith Curtis  polls only 38%.  The candidate who will promise  everything is fortunate to be left at  home, for in this wav they escape a  heap of trouble.  Duncan Ross as s prophet is a- failure,  and he k, not familiar enough with the  truth to handle it efficiently. His forecast that the Liberals would have six  out of the nine seats in Yale-Cariboo  doesn't figure out that way.

Mrs. Brass is having her turn of  la grippe this week.  Mrs; Loonier had a very severe sick  spell last \veek but is now convalescent.  Great Northern right of way men  have started in to negotiate right of  way between Oroville and Wena tehee.  .Saturday last was ground-hog day.  How many political ground-hogs were  there who saw their shadows on that  date tuid concluded to hole up again  for another spell ?  The Gazette, had an invitation on  Tuesday 'morning to go out to pick  buttercups in the banana belt. The  little botanical outing, however, was  postponed on account.of the weather.  Smith Curtis, left on Monday evening for his home in Rossland, after  what lie acknowledged to have beeii  the hardest mouth's work in his life.  . Miss Eliza Bromley is in town this  week, stopping at Mrs. Greenhill's.  She has a sore hand as the result of  blood-poisoning, and is undergoine-  surgical treatment.  Rev. D. .T. Macdonald,' B.A., held  his first service in Hedley on Sunday  evening last, in the Methodist church,  in which the Presbyterian services  will be held. This week he goes to  Princeton to make arrangement for  the services there.  The ice harvest was interfered with  somewhat this week by the heavy  snowfall. Most of those wdio are putting up ice have now laid in their  supply. In no winter has the ice.  harvest been put up so early or has it  been put up in such good condition.  Mr. D. McPhail was another of the  voters who was prevented by illness  from polling his vote. His condition  has been improving somewhat during  the past week. There is still the effect of paralysis in one leg. This it is  hoped will soon pass away, as it did  from the arms that were similarly affected. Miss Elliot who has been  nursing him for the past two weeks  is in constant attendance.  Harry Rose was taken down the  day before election with a severe attack of pleurisy. It was thought by  some of Mr. Shatford's friends that  the patient could be carried to the  polls, but Dr. McEwen, on making an  examination of his condition that day  would not santion it, and thus the ambulance corps was not called into use.  In Fairview, however, the ambulance  tallied for Smith Curtis.  H. A. Turner, formerly assayer for  the B. C. Copper Co. on the Sunset,  came down from Princeton this week.  Mr. Turner knows Copper Mountain  possibly better than any man in the  province, and in all probability will  stand a good chance for coming in for  some of the plums, as it is understood  that his recent sampling and negotiations with prospectors are likely to result in some movement before long.  The freeze-up on Okanagan lake has  thrown considerable business in the  direction of the Great Northern. Ever  since last September there has been a.  good deal of quiet profanity at the  slowness of the Great Northern in  getting its track in this direction.  Now, however, it is louder, when instead of the track being tit Keremeos  or some point in the Similkameen in  this province, there is no train service  nearer than Molson.  It was with dismay that people  heard on Monday that Okanagan lake  had frozen over and that no boat  would be down the lake. The prospect of having mail communication  paralyzed in this manner for an indefinite period was not re-assuring, to  say the least. Tuesday's stage came  in with nothing but local mail. If the  ice blockade should be likely to last  for any length of time some other  arrangement should be made at once  to get the mail in from Midway.  The proceedings on election day  were varied a little in mid-afternoon  by the call of fire. Smoke was exnud-  ing from underneath and between the  shingles, and along the entire roof of  Mr. Shelder's residence, on Ellis avenue, and it looked as if the flames  would soon break through the roof,  A crowd was soon on hand, but the  absence of water was severely felt and  efforts were made to extinguish the  fire with snow. For this. purpose  buckets and tubs were called into use.  Fortunately, however, a sleigh with a.  barrel of wafer happened to be passing, and a bucket or two got it under  control. The temporary absence of  water supply necessitates the utmost  vigilance to  Geo. ,Mbffat went out."this week en-  route for the coast. Having to go by  way of the Boundary he might possibly stop off there.  ; Geo. Bowerinari, Paul Brodhageh  and J. Murphy have the contract of  enlarging the tuniiels on the flume line  sufficiently' to allow passage between  the flume and the roof of tunnel.  - W. E. Burritt returned to the Coast  this week going out by way of Molson.  He went with the proud satisfaction of  duty well and 'nobly done. Mr. Burritt is an old campaigner, but this campaign in the Siniilkaineen had some  features in it that were both new and  repugnant to him.  Mr! Milliken's party of V. V. & E.  surveyors are still camped tip near  Stirling creek and are engaged in making slight revisions of the line. The  very cold weather and the unusual  depth of snow has made winter work'  much more trying for them than it  would have been .under, normal conditions. ;  The people, of Hedley regret the departure, this week of Rev. E. R. Bart-  let and family for Ladner, B. C. 'Mr;  Bartlet has been in charge of the Anglican church nb Hedley, and Princeton since April last, and had made  many friends in the town. His successor is coming-out. from England in  a. few weeks to take charge.  A pack train between Kelowna. and  Penticton was at first considered' by  the P. 0. department as relief from  the ice blocade. The mail that came  down to Kelowna by Monday's boat  .was taken across the ice andpaeked to  Suinmerland and will be in here tonight. In this way mail matter will  always be one mail late.

When his opponent is speaking, he (Mr. Curtis) is  eternally rising on his hind legs .to  interrupt, but when he himself is  speaking, his opponent is given no  opportunity to correct him, no matter  how wild or how unfair his statements  may be. He takes advantage of his  deafness to make it appear that he  does not hear him, but keeps buzzing  away like a threshing machine, and  takes care never to look in his direction lest he might happen to see him,  and have to recognize the point of  order that is being raised.

A Costly Miniature.  There    was a sale of   old    prints,  miniatures,  and  curios   at  Christie's  (London)  recently. A big matrix   of  amethyst snuff box brought two hundred   guineas.   A pendant  of   Italian  workmanship,   supposed  to have been  given to the Bishop of    Chester    by  Pope Leo XII., after some brisk bidding, foil to a Father Race for ������150.  The most interesting article   in    the  collection  was a miniature of   Mary  Queen    of    Scots.     This    miniature  shows the Queen in three-quarter face.
