In the programme  the kids were assisted by several  "grown-ups." Books and other prizes  were given by the chairman, Rev. Mr.  Cameron, to deserving Sunday school  pupils for class attendance and for  good conduct, and to Pauline and Eugene  Campbell for answering all the  On Friday night last three places in  Kelowna were burglarized, and the  burglar is. now in, the toils. Two of-  the places entered were LawsonV store  and the' Lakeviow hotel. The housebreaker confined his attention principally to cash,.and succeeded in gathering up considerable filthy lucre in bank  notes of various denominations! the  total amount of which has not yet  been ascertained.  Immediately on discovery of the  robbery, Constable Rose got busy and  ascertaining that his suspect had started' down the trail on the east"side of  the lake towards.Penticton, he phoned  Constable ��������� Tooth, who proceeded to  watch the trail, accompanied by Mr.  Edmunds. ' *  The party under suspicion was A. E.  Clark, who had been arrested last winter on suspicion in connection with the  ���������Zimmerman murder, but dismissed for  lack of evidence to connect him with  the crime ; since which time he has  been, at Kelowna, employed mostly  around the hotels.  Finding that his man, after, proceeding a distance on the trail, had doubled  back and was making towards Vernon,  he was soon gathered in and Constable  Tooth notified of the capture, on Sunday, evening, thus saving him the  trouble of spending a second night on  the trail."  The prisoner shortly after being taken made a full confession of the burglaries. He was brought on Monday  before Jno. F. Burne, S. M., who re--  'manded him, to give opportunity for  the crown officers to prepare the case  for the preliminary hearing.  Clark had spent time in the Stony  Mountain penetentiaiy and was altogether a bud actor.  . It is now almost a year since Zimmerman, the old jeweller in Penticton,  was foully murdered in his store by  being struck seveial blows on the head  with an axe, and after being killed, or  at all events rendered unconscious,  was stabbed in the abdomen, the knife  being left in the wound. There was  evidence also that an attempt had been  made to.stab hhu, in. the throat, but  the, pointy of, the; knife coming in cqn<-:  tact with the. jaw-bone, the murderer  in'..1, his, -agitation next cliose( the abdomen" to finish his fiendish/work.  The crime had been committed under the,most favorable circumstances,  the weapons used for the assault belonging to the victim and nothing  being carried away.- To add to this,  there was also the; long time elapsing  before the crime was discovered. The.  murder was believed to have been  committed early in the evening of the  16th of January and not .discovered  until 3 p. hj. of '.'the 17th. ,     -,;'.  Other suspects,at th.it time besides  Clark were arrested and dismissed for  lack of evidence. Whether this; latest  offence in which he. has boon caught  almost redrhand., may lead to further  disclosures to clear up the Zimmerman  mystery it is impossible to say, but  it is hoped that.it wjli.  LIQUOR   CASES.  Robt. Jamieson and J. Duncan Get.Into  Trouble for Mistaken Generosity.  , All along it has been evident in Hed-  ley^that the law forbidding  the supplying of liquor to Indians  has been  disregarded with a degree of recklessness that has been annoying to citizens  and particularly to those, responsible  for having  the law put in force.    At  times there have been good reasons for  suspicions as to some of the offenders,  and while the suspicions weie on sufficiently reasonable grounds to warrant  action being taken,  it became, a question of whether'it would be wise to do  so without a fair degree of certainty  that the case could be proven.    Last  week, however, one of the suspects left  himself open and an information was  laid against him by Constable Spionle.  This suspect was Bob Jamieson. half-  breed, a freighter, and associated with  him in the spree was Jimmy Duncan,  from. Nicola,  who has been doing carpenter work for .1. H. Bromley.   They  had been drinking around  town on  Sunday forenoon; Dec. 29th, and went  to Pinto's cabin, on the reservation,  where" Agatha,   Jamieson's  sister-in-  law, was with her mother and an Indian boy, Albert .

After singing the National song, the  children went home, .happy and to  dream of Santa Claus.  iFairview; December 30th, 1907.  Last week in the gang of Italians  that have a grading contract on the  V. V. &.E. near Chief Charlie Allison's  a man took violently ill, and when inquiries were made of him to ascertain  the nature of the trouble all that could  be learned for a while was "me vera  seek, me vera seek." His arms being  clasped in a suggestive manner in the  region of his stomach, the inquiries  became more direct concerning that  particular kind of ailment, when the  patient varied his exclamations .from  "nie-vera. seek" to "oh, the beeg eyes,  the beeg eyes." .This made the malady appear all the more mysterious,  and the questioner began to conjure  up ills that,might arise from a foreigner's belief in black art, sorcery, and  otheii similar mysteries peculiar to  medheval .times.. .But an explanation  was soon forthcoming from one of the  bystanders that the sick man had  shot an owl the (lav before and made a  against them was that of taking liquor  on the reservation, but later on the  charge in Duncan's' case .was amended  to that of being drunk,on the reservation. As the culprits had loft town  before the charge was laid the expense  was incurred of getting a team and a  man to accompany the constable, in  following them to Princeton. ��������� To this  also was added the expense for livery  hire in bringing Justice" Coleman from  Keremeos to sit on the case with A.  Megraw, J. P.  The evidence elicited in" the hearing  left no doubt as to the guilt of the defendants on the charges laid against  them, and the punishment meted out  was ,$75 fine and $24.50 costs for Jamieson, or five months in Kamloops gaol,  and $50 fine with $21.50 costs for Duncan, or four months in Kamloops.  In addition to this'there was against  Jamieson an old charge of cruelty to  animals for leaving his team out for  over twenty-four hours at the. .Park  hotel on one of the coldest days at the  |beginniug. of December. In, view of  the fact that the fine and costs in the,  liquor case had amounted to .$90,50, he  was let off. on the cruelty charge with  ���������a repriiuand aiid.the warning that any  like cruelty, to his team jn the, futin-,e  would. get.hini into trouble -and. severe  punishment would result.;  t In nabbing , Jamieson on the liquor  case, it is .not to be inferred:that jusr  tice. will go to sleep, until the ���������.next  "^sure enough" case arises for prosecu.-'  tipn. The fact.still' remains that the  sight of drunken Indians about, the  streets would not be of so frequent occurrence if there were not so. many  'deliberate violaters of the law. It is a  well-known fact that there .are certain  Indians who can get liquor in this  town almost any time they want, it,  and that certain parties: are in the  habit of packing bottles to them. So  far as the spirit of the law is concerned, it, is just as had .to sell a bottle to  anyone knowing that itjs going to be  packed to Indians as to sell to the Indians themselves. No sympathy is  cotning.to any man for punishment he  may incur for violation of the law in  giving liquor to Indians.  An altogether mistaken impression  exists, even in Hedley, regarding progress being made, on the railway  grades. Some who were disappointed  in the amount of stir and noise that  was popularly supposed lo go along  with railway construction, have complained that it is slow. Others took up  the refrain and passed it along until  finally- the majority have come to believe that it is frightfully slow. Few  of them have been over the ground for  months and are therefore ready to fill  up on these pessimistic yarns. The  Gazette has heard, the computation  made in all seriousness that at the  present late of building it would lake  two years to reach Hedley. A drive  over the route at present, however,  will serve to show that this is all very  wide of the truth. In fact it is a matter of surprise how rapidly the grade-  is shaping up, and we are more confident than ever that the first of April  will see more than iiinety per cent, of  it ready for the steel, and the middle  or end of April see not only the completion of the grading but also the laying of the greater part of the steel.  The work done at No. 1 camp has  accounted for all the grading from the  end of the track to the first crossing of  the river well on the way to Ashnola.  with the exception of the work of the  steam shovel which will bo completed  in'less than a week.  1 There was a breakdown accident to  the shovel last week which caused the  loss of three days, but it is at work  again.  , On the opposite side of the river the  grade is mostly done all the way from  the crossing to a point opposite Alexis'  cabins. Beyond that is a gravel bank  which the steam shovel will take out  in less than two weeks, and when this  is done steel might be laid to Ashnola  creek, after which a short distance of  exceedingly light work will bring it to  'the second crossing of the Similkameen  a little below Brushy Bottom.  On Brushy Bottom,  J. Budd has a  number of teams on plow and scraper  work, and between  that and Hedley  where, the heaviest work lies, a gre.-it  deal of work has been done during the  past three months, for these tasks, being the heaviest, -were started earliest.  i Altogether   thei progress    made   is  ihost i encouraging   and  justifies   the  hope  of  completion   in   the   spring.  Supt. Cunningham is , to be congratulated on accomplishing so much with  a;s little fuss.    Having his base of supplies Joy-rail so close,  the expense and  turiuoil of* .teaming is   reduced to  a  ininimu.m,: and that is a.feature that  contributed   to the  false   impression  that the work  was tentative in character rather   than   being  prosecuted  in earnest. ���������.-.'���������������������������     ,  THIS LOOKS SUSPICIOUS.

Winnipeg, Dec. 31���������An information  was sworn out yesterday before Magistrate McMicken against George M.  Ssunuels, manager of the Northwestern Supply House, Winnipeg. The  information states that Samuels has  appropriated to his own use the sum  of $21.43,��������� being an amount received  by him from George P,.Barry, of Saltier, Sask., for goods from the Northwestern Supply   House. ������  This concern has been doing a mailorder business in the city for the past  sixmotiths, and lately the police had  reqeived many complaints, but through  the fact that no one could be secm-ed  wl>o would swear out a. warrant, they  have been unable to do anything in  the matter.  Lately, the Northwestern Supply  House;Company,,L't'd has changed its  name, and according, to a circular, it  is now known as the British-American  Manufacturing Company, 137 Banna-  tyne east, and that the new company  will assume all' liabilities of the old  firm.

Now' that  President   Roosevelt   is definitely  out of the Held the several  candidates  suggested by different sections  of, the  country are heconiing more prominent  in the public eye.    Mr.  Tiift and ''Mr.  Hughes occupy a   position   as. candidates   different   from   that  of ..other  suggested     presidential   possibilities'.  Most of the latter are local rather than  National candidates, being   the   favorite sons of their several states.    Both.  Mr. Taft and Mr. Hughes have adherents on account  of  their national  re-  p.ntntion.   Of the two, Mr. Taft at'present seems to have the greater support.  But it is possible that the efforts being  put forth to   "boom" his  candidature  may have an effect contrary   to  what-  is intended.    He is regarded, however,  as the man most acceptable to the Administration, while his sane treatment  of different questions has -gained   him  support among a large class of 'voters.  ���������News-Advertiser.  Another forward step in the movement for government ownership of  public utilities was witnessed in the  purchase of the Boll Telephone interests in Manitoba, by the legislature of  that province. Thus the. movement  goes on steadily and what was denounced as heresy in tin; Dominion'  election of 1904, is almost accepted as  an article in the industrial creed.  Toronto, also is responsible lor another  grand siride in that direction by carrying a comprehensive power by-law  whiclneinancipated the public from  the domination of the electric power  ring in that city which was fast making millionaires of a- few schemers at  the. expense of the public.

Occasionally   a   little   flurry  may mark the temporary recovery of  some particular stock,  but the convalescence is short-lived.    The wisdom of  trying to  buoy   up   the   public   with  false hopes at such times  is questionable, for it may cause  them  to relax  the caution that in some   cases  is  requisite to ward off bankruptcy.

All the best informed persons of my  time have always thought that this  famous history was founded upon the  capture and captivity of Mattioli, a  Piediuontese political prisoner, who:  died in the Bastile in 1703. In those  days prisoners were made to wear  masks when traveling, but it would be  more exact to say'a mask'the color of  iron. All the details which Voltaire  added were simply fabulous and laughable, and I think you will find that my  theory of the iron mask Is the right  one.���������From the ITrench Noblesse.  Setting Him Right.  An Irish soldier was crossing a barrack square with a pall, In which he  was going to get some water. A sergeant passing at the time noticed that  Pat had a very disreputable looking  pair of trousers on and, wishing to  make a report, stopped the man and  asked, "Where arc you going?"  "To get some water."  "What! In those trousers?"  ' "No, sergeant; in the pail."  Cornered.'  Life Insurance Agent���������I should like  to insure your life in our company for  $10,000. Editor���������No, sir. I don't want-  any insurance. I expect to live at  least until I'm ninety years old. Life  Insurance Agent���������Well, here's our  other policy. If you die, you get nothing; live until you're ninety and get a  million.   See?  Canada is one. of the very few countries which .can'be. depended upon to  produce more timber than is sufficient  for its needs. Such is the opinion of a  gieat French authority, M. Melard,  who has made a careful study of the  source of the world's timber supply.  There are only seven countries in the  \vorld which now export wood in any  quantity. Besides Canada, these are  the United States on this continent,  and Austro-Hungnry, Norway,. Sweden, Russia and Finland in Europe.  In Asia, only Russia has more than  enough for her own use; Africa and  South America can send little or no  timber suitable for ordinary use, and  Australia can supply little.  Of the. seven exporting countries  mentioned, the United States, Russia  and Austro-Huugary have been increasing in population and developing  their resources so rapidly that they  must soon cease to rank among exporting countries. Norway is over-  cutting her forests and must soon decrease her export. Only three countries remain,namely, Canada, Sweden  and Finland, as sources that can be  depended on for the timber supply.  Canada's forest area has been estimated atSOO.OOj),000 acres, but so lnuc-li  of this is of little value naturally, or  has been burned over that more recent  estimates fall much below this, even  less than half. The amount of wood  produced annually is no doubt much  in excess of what is being cot each  year. It is important, -however, if  Canada is to hojd her position as a- timber producing country that her forests  be protected from Are and so managed  as to ensure the greatest amount of  timber being cut year.after year, so as  to keep th(;m producing.in. perpetuity  and it is to this end thatettoi'ts.aie being made to secure bettor' care Of her  forests.  The demand for wood is sure to keep  up and increase; it is wanted for building, for furniture, for tools and for a:  multitude of other uses; and as a na- j  tion progresses so the amount of wood  used for each individual of its population increase^, and so the country  which can supply the demand for this  commodity has a. resourse of. ever increasing importance, and one that will  well repay considerable expenditures  in its care.
