THE   LATE   MANUEL   BARCELO  Word  is received as wo go to press  of  the death at 7:30 on   Wednesday  morning of Manuel Barcello, of Keremeos, of whose  illness  mention w.-is  made in our Keremeos correspondence.  Since the   death   of   the   Into Frank  Richter   about a  year   ago.   Manuel  Barcello  was probably the oldest survivor among the earliest settlers in  this,  portion of the Similkameen valley,  and   was   universally   respected.  Deceased was born in Mexico and like  most of the oldest settlers of the dis  trice, who camefiom  nil parts of the  Globe,  placer mining engaged his attention.     Even when  not engaged in  active placer mining  he. packed  supplies into  the placer camps  and had a  large  pack train of mules  that were  used  by him  to transport goods into  the leading camps were placer mining  or other pioneer operations  were carried'on.     Jt was   in this way that he  made his first acquaintance  with the  .Similkameen  at Keremeos which was  then-a Hudson's Bay tlading post and  there he took up his first pre-emption  A MILL STONE  HONORS FOR BORDEN  E.

Berlin, Dec. 29.���������Nine deaths since  morning bring the total victims at the  municipal night shelter for the homeless, , who were poisoned by eating  tainted fish on Christmas day, up to  57 at midnight. Ninety persons still  are ill, 15 oeing in a dangerous cbndir  tion.  The attending physicians say the  reason sorrre of those poisoned died  quickly, while others lingered for  hours, was the varying physical condition. A majority were ill-nourished;  and succumbed', quickly.  While the doctors believe the worst  is over they say it is possible ptomaine  poisoning may not develop for four or  five days in some of the persons affected.  Berlin fish dealers have been hard  hit as a result of the poisoning. Most  people buy.only live fish and the sale  of smoked and iced fish has almost  ceased. These brands are selling at  half their usual price.  Premier Borden Gets   Knighthood���������His  Name to Appear in List of New-  Year Honors  News that was not unexpected  come*- to hand that Premier Borden  was honored with knighthood on  New Year's Day. The honor would  doubtless have come a. little later in  any case, and that it has come so soon  is doubtless due to Britain's appreciation of the service performed the empire when reciprocity was turned  down. Canada ha--, had numerous Sir  Johns, Sir Williams and Sir Charlies  with occasional Sir Georges, Sir Jims,  Sir Freds and Sir Richaids, but this  time, we have Canada's one and only-  SirBob.

Holmes, Uhcr.il candidate in the  Gowarr district of Lanarkshire.  While the party letained the seal,  it was by a ieduced majority (080 compared with 22(10 last election), and this  following thtee defeats recently in  districts, which elected Liberals in 1010  has brought the government to the  realization of the iact that the Unionists aie making headway, with the  Lloyd-George compulsory in.sirrance  law as an issue. It defeated the Lib  eral candidate in the election at Ayrshire on Tliur.sd.iy. and it was admitted afterwards that the new law alone  was responsible for the overturn of  the district.  After the holidays the Unionists will  begin -i stirring campaign with Irish  Home Rule and the compulsory insurance1 law as objects of their attack.

Miyako, a prominent lawyer  and member of the Imperial .Tapime.se  Parliament for Iharkai, near Tokyo,  who is in town en route home from  Rome.  For some time past, as is generally  known, Japanese immigration to Canada has been restricted, but, according  to Mr. Miyako, as the result of the  agreement between the different members of the cabinet of the country, it  will irr future be absolutely stopped.  On Wednesday night. December 27.  the anniversary of St. John the  evangelist, the brethern of Hedley  Lodge, No. 43, A.

This  latest purchase by the company has  proved in the highest degree satisfactory and it is thought that enough ore  will be taken out within the next six  months to pay the purchase price.

Simon Fraser's Big River May Emigrate  South  Engineer Louis Coste, of the Public  Works Department, Ottawa, gave the  people at the coast a mild shock last  week when he expressed the belief  that there was a danger of the Fraser  river breaking through its south bank  at Ladner's Landing and finding a new  outlet to the sea which would place its  mouth in the, state of Washington.  To guard against so great a calamity,  it is proposed to strengthen the south  bank at that point.  Such' a mishap would be a bitter-  blow to New Westminster and the  dreams of all the advantages to be  derived from the possession of a. fresh  water harbor would be rudely dispelled.

There   is   the   best   of  grounds   for denying   the report.    Al  though   Sir  Wilfrid   is anxious   to rc-  i visit  California, he  will certainly  not  j do so   dining a  session of   parliament  KERI.0M FOS. B.C. j so long as his health keeps good.

Nomination  Day Gave  Mathieson   Five  Seats by Acclamation ;  election    in   Pi-inee  Montreal, Que. Dec. 28.���������In reply to  the caustic criticisms of alleged Canadian land speculation appearing recently in the London Times, Frank  W. Gardner, of London, writing to a  well-khown Montreal publication says:  "The purchase of real estate through  reliable firms within the city limits of  the established cities of Canada, which  have vast tributary territories as yet  undeveloped, is a safe and sound investment. The prosperity of Canada  is founded upon the safest basis in the  world -the production of wheat." If.  is also noted that the Times wriler. in  his sweeping attack, made one exception, namely, in the. case of Winnipeg, where, lie says the hirrh price of  land in the heart of the city to-day is  based on the large and increasing  population of rural Manitoba, whose  solid prosperity is a virtual guarantee  that even in lean years the position of  that metropolis will not !>.* seriously  shaken.  The New Year opens with a cotton  lockout in Lancashire.  Premier .McBi ide say.s that B.

Administration of h-nds irr the railway belt has been turned over to the  provincial government.  The Canadian Northern are going to  establish a lirre of steamers for Australia.  Sir Charles Tupper is again in a  critical condition and death is said to  be near.  A halibut steamer was lost oft' the  west coast near Prince Rupert last  week.  Canada is planning to develop trade  with South America.  ���������Porcupine ore bodies are said to indicate greater depth than those of Co-,  balk  A Canadian Bank of Commerce teller surprised a holdup man at Lady-  smith on Vancouver Island. The hank  cleric happened to be the handiest  of the two with the gun and the $1000  which the robber demanded' was not  forthcoming. But as usual the robber  was able to make a get-a way.  Nelson passed a. by-law to borrow  $15,000 to be given as a grant towards  the building of a new hospital to cost  $70,000. Ninety per cent of the vote  cast was for the by-law. Eighty two  women voted and it is believed that  they all plumped for the hospital.  Who says that women would not bts  progressive it they  had the ballot. ?  FORESTRY CONVENTION  The   provincial  Mil ward Irlaiid is  said to look blue for  the former Liberal government.      'The  election   takes place   on   January   3rd  and the   nominations   went   decidedly  in   favor   of  the   Conservative   leader  who obtained   five followers   by acclamation   and   all   the   other   -seats    tin.:  contested, but the Liberals are reported to  be putting   up a   spiritless  tight;!1'*1'   Unlumliia  s.-ilmon   pad-  and the desire for a change appears t(  have taken firm hold of the electors.

Ottawa, Jan. 2���������The members of the  Canadian Forestry Association arrd  others interested in forest conserva.r  tion will on February 7th and Sth, 1912  gather in Ottawa to discuss what they  hope will be the most practical programme of any of their conventions.  TL ft. TI., the Duke ot Oonnuugtit.  evinces his interest in the subject by  extending his patronage to the gathering, and the concern of the Government is shown in the fact that the  meetings will be held in the Knilway  Committee room of the Parliament  Buildings, and that a number' of Parliamentary leader's will be in attendance. The Railways have granted  special rates.  On the livening of February 7th a  banquet in   which the members of the  ('anndian .Lumbermen's Association  will participate with the Forestry Association, has been arranged. The  Lumbermen will hold their annual  ineeting in Ottawa o i February 0th.  "and it is expected they will attend in  large numbers to discuss with the  members of the Forestry Association  matters lespecfing fire protection, logging methods and regulations which  vitally affect thein, and which are also  of concern to every tax payer in  Canada.  Details are now being worked out  by the Committee in charge, of which  Mr. James Lawler, Canadian Forestry  Association, Ottawa,, is the Secretary,  and from him may be obtained any  needed information. nu-  ��������� :a>'..  ��������� N-l,-' .'-12.  ������������"*>!-  m'-'.O*'  :     '.* A.'

This in itself is an  insult on the part of the Pontiff to  every Roman Catholic subject of King  George or for that part to every  Roman Catholic citizen of the United  States or of any other country, but  particularly so in the British Empire  where the decree itself is not to be  regarded as anything less than an impudent pretence inasmuch as the British' subject, be be catholic or protes-  tant,'has. been released from observance of any laws save those of the  British parliament- and Crown for  over three hundred and fifty years.  When they add that the decree "is  not to apply to Germany" they practically say that the Roman Catholic  subject of Ihe German emperor is of a  more manly type and will not exhibit  the cow-like docility which Rome evidently expects of the Catholic subject  of Britain. Surely it is the Roman  Catholics and not the protectants who  have most reason to rise in righteous  rebellion against so impudent and insulting a decree.  An  abridged   draft  of   the   Public  Libraries  Act to be submitted for the  consideration of  the B. C. Legislature  at the coming session is to hand and is  very likely   to pass as it appears to be  the very  thing that  is wanted at the  present time,    in fact it is very similar in many  respects  to the old  Ontario law by which Mechanics'Institute  libraries were fostered and maintained  and   which  exerted a  powerful  influence    in   promoting    intellectual   advancement of the people of that province.    While   the act about to be submitted-appears  in the  abridged form  to  deal   more   with   the   conduct   of  libraries   iir the   cities   and the  larger  towns,  and fits in with  municipal organization, there is a  note which indicates that provision   will  be  made  also  for  unorganized  districts by the  recognition  and support of travelling  libraries     It will thus be interresting  when tin; full text of the proposed bill  is  given to  the   public  to  note  what  will be the requirements in connection  with   the  travelling   libraries    which  were  exceedingly generous and open  before.     In fact they were really too  generous  and open before and a little  more restriction would have made the  library more  appreciated  and would  The  surrrtri.it y   cutting   off   of   the  Great Noitlu-rii hotel licence came as* a  surprise to everybody   in town, and it  should be ample  evidence   to the public that'neither, partisanship  nor politics  in any form   is  allowed   to enter  into the administration  of .the liquor  laws of the province.    No special   violation  of the law   that we have heard  has been put forward as cause of withdrawal  of the licence, arrd the house  has possibly been  conducted as nearly  in accordance  with the   requirements  of the Liquor licence law as any in the  town   or  district;   but   nevertheless  there are. many who can give a fairly  successful guess at the reason.    When  the  house  was licensed   in   the   first  place  it was  under'a'..Liquor Licence  law which was very  much less in the  interests of the general public and of  the better conduct of the traffic than  the present law.   The granting of its  licence'in the first place was of course  overdoing the thing, but the licence  commissioners who granted it were in  no  way  to  blame   as  they only did  what over ninety per cent    of   the  people of Hedley  by petition   asked  them to do and there was nothing in  the Act to forbid it.   Neither did the  conditions  then  exist    which   afterwards developed and which many believe to have  been  the sole cause of  the present refusal  to renew.    This  reduces    Hedley    to   three " licenced  houses which is less than we have had  at any time  in the last seven years  and only half of what we-had  for five  of the seven.   There have been times  when some of the  remaining houses  were in much greater danger of losing  their licences than the Great-Northern  and it is hoped   that all of these  will  now take warning *to hew straight to  the line and obey the law   both in the  spirit   and  the letter,   and  the. constable,   we   are sure,   will   have   the  moral  support of all   in  seeing  that  they do so.    The present liquor law is  strict but it is not unduly burdensome  and the man   who is not prepared  to  obey it in its minutest particular has  no right to be in the business   and he  can blame only his own fool self if he  is made to feel the weight of it.

The installation of officers of Nickel  Plate Camp of the Modern Woodmen  of America will take place tomorrow  (Friday) night instead of to-night.  T. D. Pickard took a trip over to the  Apex last week to note progress being  made on the tunnel contract, and it is  understood, was satisfied with developments.  The first morning in the ' new year  found the* temperature 7 degrees below  zero. When 1912 has had , time to  thaw out'a bit we will be able to see  ���������what it looks like.  The Oroville Gazette issued a special  number for Christmas in which the  claims of Orovill and surrounding district are ably set forth, and the typography creditable to the office.  G. H. Whitenian, of Princeton,  spent Sunday irr Hedley, going back  with the party of Hedleyites who  went up on Monday to attend the  New Years Masquerade ball.  There is no more word from the  east as to how the Kingston litigation  is coming on. Possibly the Christmas  holidays made a- good excuse for both  the litigants and the court dignitaries  to take a holiday.  Dr. Westwood, of Coleman, Alta.,  who has for years held important property interests in the Similkameen has  decided to make his permanent abode  in this valley from now on. He has  leased the Hewat residence in Princeton until he can build oh his ranch  and take an active interest with his  partner T. 0. Brooke in the working  of the ranch and poultry business.  Pin the date, January 10th, in your  hat, and if you haven't got a hat pin  tise some other kind. That is the date  when the Dixie Jubilee Singers will  appear in Hedley under the auspices  of the Hedley hospital. There is no  burnt cork business about it; the  troupe are genuine college bred negro  talent that have beeu patronized by  the best class of music-loving concert  goers in the larger towns and cities.  The Vernon News issued a very  handsome special number for Christmas which is most creditable to that  office. For typographical excellence  as well as for the suitability of the  matter compiled it is rarely that as  meritorious a production is issued  from any office in the province and  the town is fortunate indeed irr its-  local paper which is giving such excellent return for the generous support accorded.  The local hotels received their renewal licences on New Years Day, but  in the bunch two were missing. These  were the Great Northern hotel and  John Cosgrove's Park hotel four miles  out. It is presumed that the reason  for cutting off the Park hotel licence  was failure to make the alterations  specified by the chief licence inspector  on his official visit, but as the Great  Northern has more bedroom accommodation than any other hotel irr  town it would look as if they have  been pinched for going to the other  ���������extreme.  The Russell Hale Co. played to good  houses oiv Monday and Tuesday nights  On the first night the play was "Qh  the road to Calgary" arid the second  night'���������The Canadian Girl." Some of  those who attended both nights preferred the latter play of the two,  there being nothing distinctively Canadian about the first except the name  Calgary, for the play itself might more  correctly have been designated "Oh  the Koad to Fargo or Missoula" as the  peace officer was termed a "marshal"  which is distinctively un-Canadiaii.  "The Canadian Girl" was a rather  pretty conception and well sustained,  the characters Robert Rowland, Jessie  and Lady Rowland being well borne  out by theartists.uiipersouating them  KEEP YOUR EYES Oti  ",*:-.  )  WATCH IT GROW  THE COPPER HANDBOOK  Vol. X, the tenth annual edition of  the Copper handbook is just received-.

The miscellaneous chapters of the  book,  twenty-four in  number,   treat  the subject of copper from all possible  viewpoints,  there being chapters on  the   history,   chemistry, mineralogy,  metallurgy, brands and grades, alloys  and   substitutes   for  copper,   with a  copious   glossary,   and  a chapter  of  statistics ending the book that contains 10 odd tables,  thoroughly coveting copper production, consumption,  movements,   prices,   dividends,    etc.  The Copper handbook is sold on the  unique plan adopted nine years ago  the publisher  sending the   book   by  mail, prepaid to any address ordered,  without advance payment of anv sort,  and subject to return after a week's  inspection.

"The  Dixie, company at the Tabernacle last  night added new beauty to the old  plantation sorrgs. It was the irrepressible optimism of the negro expressing itself in audible form. Melodies  that have become common to the entire country, sweet lullabies, rollicking  dialect songs, and songs of the southland were rendered with expression.  The quartette blended excellently."  Charlie Allison jr. shot a baby owl  of the big-horned species and came in  to claim the bounty which he did in a  sort of half apologetic way doubtless  feeling that the diiniimtivcness detracted somewhat from the validity  of the claim, but it is more, profitable,  to pay the bounty for the killing of  an owl at.the outset of its career than  after it has had time to make away  with too many victims. Another bird  on which he claimed the bounty was a  monster golden-head eagle which he  found in one of his coyote traps. In  order to get the bounty on the eagle  the feet had to be sent to provincial  game warden Bryan Williams for  identification.  A masher was fined $50 and costs in  Vancouver for trying to make himself too indiscriminately chummy with  the o pposite sex.  The Grand Trunk and Canadian  Pacific show signs of indulging in a  rate war shortly.  The orange growing districts of  California have been visited with unusually severe frosts.  An unusually large number of snow-  slides have occurred in the Kootenays  this winter already. These were generally in--evidence a month or two  later in former winters.
