Bar Stocked with Best Brands  of Liquor and Cigars  $ A  WINKLER,     Proprietor  Direct railway connection between  the Kootenay, Boundary and Okanagan districts and Vancouver will probably be established next autumn, Mr.  J. J. Warren, president of the Kettle  Valley .Railway, in the course of ah  interview irr Penticton last week,  stated that the contractors expect to  be able to inaugurate a coast service  via Merritt and Spence's Bridge late  in 1914, and that the short line via  Hope will be'ready for opera tiorr the,  year following.  A portion of Ihe Kettle Valley line  is. already in service and another' extensive section will be finished at an  early date. From 31 id way, the present western terminus of the Kettle  Valley Railway, 75 miles ofsteel.has  been laid to the summit between the  Kettle River- and Okanagan valleys,  and will be continued an additional  ten miles as soon as a bridge at that  point has been completed. Grading  has been finished through to Penticton  with the exception of a few gaps  where tunnelling and extensive excavations have, been found necessary.  This work is expected to be completed  bv March 1st next.  * i  gap of 35 an less  -A 15-mile section of track will be  laid east of Penticton this month, it is  estimated, leaving a gap of less than  35 miles to be linked up between  Penticton and Midway. West of Penticton the 40-mile portion to Osprey  Lake is entirely completed. The corn-  tract for the section west of Osprey  Lake to Otter Summit, 105 miles distant from Penticton, is expected to be  let atari early date -and will be rushed  to completion irr order to have it ready  to afford the connecting links by the  autiimm Frorri Otter.Summit 30 miles  to Merritt, the southern terminus of  the Nicola branch of the C. P. R. from  Spence's' Bridge, the Kettle Valley  Railway has its line already in operation.'  - Work is progressing well on the  Coquihalla section, which is being built  jointly by the K. V. and the V., V. &'.  E. railways. Onc'the 39-mile portion  to be constructed between Cold water  Junction, about 25* miles south of Merritt, 13 miles of grading has been done  and 11 miles of steel has been laid.  The contractors have more 'than'1009  men at work and have promised completion of the section by Nov. 1st next.  Operations on substructure of the  bridge which will afford connections  between the Hope Mountain route and  the main line of the C.P.R. near Hope  are well advanced and the structure is  expected to be finished before the end  of the year. On the different sections  of the Kettle Valley line no less than  182'miles of t.rack have been laid .altogether-.  TEKMINAL IMPROVEMENTS'  In conjunction with the C. P. R.  the K. V. has greatly improved the  terminal facilities at Grand Forks.  The Provincial Government has arranged to establish a demonstration  farm at Carmi irr order to assist in  settling up the rich and productive  territory������������������ which will be opened up by  the new.line. A rouudhouse and shops  are being established at Penticton and  a new hotel has been erected at that  point by the railway company in line  with its progressive policy.  Tracks and spurs 'to afford-connections with the mines at Merritt, will  bo installed at Merritt, where the K.  V. joins the C. P. It., and it is anticipated that large quantities of coal  will be shipped to the coast via Cold-  water Junction and Hope on the short  route.  The Kettle Valley is opening up  huge tracts of territory hitherto  without transportation facilities, arrd  a great impetus will no doubt be given  to the agriculture, mining and lumbering industries when the short and  direct route between Vancouver and  the Okanagan, Boundary and Kootenay districts is placed in operation.  PROGRESS, ON DAM  Rise of Water in  the . River Responsible  for Some Delay���������Last Week Saw  Marked Advance in Work  Accomplished  THAT OPEN    LETTER  Last, week we made mention of interruption caused by the suction pipe  of the large rotary giving out, hut repair's were soon made' when the pump  was again in commission and handling  the water satisfactorily._ Later1 on in  week, however,.a more formidable obstacle presented itself: This was no  less than the river itself going on the  rampage. Constant rain uptheTuIa-  meen for something rover forty hours  where there was considerable snow  was bound to precipitate trouble, and  it came. The Tulameen river which  is the most troublosViiiie. tributarv the  Similkameen, has wiis ice bound, with  the ice from.a foot to 15 inches thick,  aiid as evidence of how greatly swollen  the stream became ' the ice broke arrd  carrre down. It carried out the accommodation bridge which hail been  thrown across the stream a short distance below the dam. But fortunately the embankment put in to turn the  stream against the opposite bank, held  fast. . Nevertheless the underground  flow through the gravel with all this  pressure on the outside soon got beyond the capacity of oven the big  rotary and the workings were drowned out for a day and a half.  Shortly after the water abated the  pumps were again put to work and  cleared it orrt arrd work has gone on  satisfactorily ever since. A bigger-  hoist has been put irr commission and  two other large sinking pumps put in  position to reinforcp the rotary irr case  of another invasion from the river.  The larger hoist handles two cars;  there is now a good gravel face to  work to and the dirt is coming out  rapidly.  On Monday '-morning cement was  going into the upper apron and every  day now will witness substantial progress.  But the weak-brained creatures on  the outside and their learned counsel  in Keremeos are hereby warned by  this paper again, as they were-months  ago, that there will be no more men  put on. The force is ample now and  has been more than ample all along.  In all probability it will be cut down  to less than it has been for the past  two'weeks. Not until the spring has  fairly set in will there be any increase,  and even then it will be time enough  for men to come in here when they  are asked to come, which they have  never yet been asked to do by anybody, nor had the remotest suggestion  been offered to them that there, would  be work here for them, when they  came.  DOUKS MUST BEHAVE  Special   Legislation   to   be   Introduced  this Session to Deal With their Case  When   writing Advertisers  Mention the Gazette.  Please  The Red Cliff mine at Stewart is to  be re-opened after a shutdown of  twelve months.  The dividends paid by metalliferous  mines in British Columbia in 1913  totalled $2,500,000.  Attorney- general   Bowser doesn't  believe in any section of the community setting the laws at defiance and  the'peculiar situation ��������� which  has existed in connection with the Doukhob-  ors calls for remedial  measures.    The  absence of individual ownershipof property among them  has  prevented   the  authorities from levying distress upon  their holdings   to satisfy claims   for  trangressions of the law and the remedy proposed is to make  the property  of the   community   liable  for claims  against individuals in the community.  It is generally believed  that all   that  is necessary to rrrake good citizens of  them in  time is to  break  the power  which  that man Peter Veregin   has  over them, and  a charrge  in   the  law  such as proposed is believed  sufficient  to attain the end aimed at and that is  to  allow  no  part of the populace  to  have special favors or privileges over  the rest.  HOSPITAL DONATIONS  The matron wishes to thank those  who so kindly remembered the hospital with flowers and fruit at Christmas. Also Miss Archibald and Miss  Walker for a couple pairs of blankets  which are much appreciated.  The Dominion  and Provincial  liaments both meet to-day.  par-  Possibly it is because the Gazette  will not publish correspondence over' a  noni de plume nor take any notice of  such appealing in other-papers which  practise a lower code of journalistic  ethics, that we are treated to the  asinine production given a place in  the last issue of the Similkameeir Star.  This time, however, arr exceptiorr  will be made, not so much because of  the scieed itself as oir account of the  fact that the publisher who has given  it a place has seen fit to assume the  responsibility of - becoming an accessory to it, for that is virtually the position under the circumstances, notwithstanding the so-called disclaimer  at the head of the column which in  this case is too evident a fraud to deceive anybody.  Although we are aware that a very  limited number of our readers have  seen the article alluded to we are not  going to reproduce it here. Suffice it  to say that it is in the form of an open  letter to the editor of this paper arid  is a tissue of lies from beginning to  end which botlrthe writer of the letter and the editor who gave them a  place knew to be lies, or at all events  should have known. It takes up nearly a! column of the Star, and it is supposed to deal "with the building of the  Hedley Gold Mining Company's dam  .on the Similkameen river, now in the  course of construction. It need not  have taken the asinine length which  it does, for the main falsehood is given  in two sentences and the rest of the  mendacious string aie merely subsidiary lies that are variations of the  main orre. Those two sentences are as  follows:  ''Did you or did you irot lead the  people to believe that there would  be 200 men  working   in  a  short  ti rue arrd 50 in en  were working on  it at your time of writing?-   Now  from  what   we can   learn,   there  were not more than 25 men work  ing at any time since the Daly Re-  ' ductioh'���������'"Company had  their- first  dam   spasm,   nearly two  months  ago, and   yet  there  has  been between  400 and 500 men   led to   believe  that they could get work if  they would go to Hedley."  The answer to the above is that the  editor of this paper did not.    We defy  any man  to show from' our fyles that  a   statement   ever   appeared  in  this  paper to bear any such  construction  and  no one  but the jackass  who pretends  to  believe  the lie  would   make  any such  charge.    On   the  contrary,  we were alwrys  careful   to  avoid  the  rrery thing with which we are charged  and " in  the  main  article    which appeared  announcing the  work in  our  issue   of November 20th,  1912,   there  was contained these paragraphs : ���������  "In fact Mr. McLean has about  all the help he needs and it would  be a misfortune to have men in  - large-'numbers crowding in looking for employment when there is  only a limited number can be employed to advantage. In cases of  this kind absurd and exaggerated  reports of the number to be employed often get spread through  the country and the men..are led  to crowd where thev are not needed. *  "Those around the hotels and  lodging houses were told to be on  hand early Tuesday morning and  work was resumed with a good  gang."  Furthermore the article which contained these paragraphs had a four-  decker heading and one of the clauses  in it said "Plenty of Help is Offering."  It is true that when the former plan  which called for a 400 foot dam arrd also a separate bridge to carry the conduit pipe was the programme, we were  told that a large gang would be required and we believed that fully 200 men  worrld have had to be put on to get it  dorre before high water, but the public  were never told so in these columns.  Since, then the company have changed  their plans as they had a perfect right  to do.  Now the editor of the Star keeps this  paper on fyle, or at all events did so  at one time and we persume does so  yet, and had every opportunity to  know that bis correspondent was maliciously lying. He knows that the  company never advertised for men in  any paper in the Similkameen for the  building of this dam and he never saw  that they advertised anywhere else  for men. Neither can he show that  at arry time since the dam commenced  has the number of men here, apart  from those employed by the company  Continued on Page four  AN APPRECIATION  What Eastern Canadians Think of Yale-  Cariboo Representative  The following article on Hon. Martin.Burrell, minister of agriculture appears in the Toronto News of -December 27th  H������*>n. Martin Burrell, minister' of agriculture, in the Borden cabinet, and.  member for Yale-Carilioo,  is ;i type of  man of which there aie tod few in this  ',  country.   They are common enough irr-  Great Britcin arYd that it. the leason  that the calibre of the members of the  British House of Commons is far a hove  that of any-similar chamber in the  World. , He is a man with an English  public'school education, well read and  well informed on many subjects. He  has not the fault which marks so many  public men both in Canada and "the  United States, he is not a "one-idea,  man." So many people on this continent know just the business they  are in and nothing elst*."' They take  no interest irr anythirrgVwhich is riot  directly related to their ..business and  are almost ignorant on "all' political  questions excepting those which directly concern themselves. They also  have only a small if arry aquaintance  with literature or art. In a word they  are narrrow and self-centred arrd find  it hard to see the viewpoint of the  other man where it clashes to any extent with their own interests.  To, a. great extent this cannot be  helped in a new country. It is a condition made necessary by the fact that  the majority of the people form their  own way in the world. They have,  little time for anything outside of their  own business during their early years  and by the time they have got a place  where they can take a breathing spell  they have become so accustomed to  one'mode of living .that it is hard for  them to change. This, however1, will  beovei-come as the;-country deyejops  arid-the. younger 'generation has .'more  time to devote to education. Then it  is to be hoped thev will, like Mr*. Bur-  rel, turn their attention to public affairs arrd enter political life. ;  Mr Burrell, who is in his 55th. year  came to this country in 1883 and for  six years was in the Niagara peninsula  fruit farming near St. Catherines.

Among several other items purporting to be. news from Camp Hedley  the Nelson News in its issrre of January 8th has the following paragraph:  "The Tregor company has lately  struck 75 feet of very rich gold ore  and the owners are now negotiating  for very extensive operations. It is  generally conceded that this is.the  righest ground in the camp and it is  confidently expected that before long  the Oregon will become a very heavy  producer."  Has anybody in Hedley ever heard  of the Tregor Company? If sn it is  one on tire Gazette which has never  yet heard of the name in this camp or  anywhere else, either as a company or  the name of a mineral claim, let alone  one with "75 feet of very rich gold  ore". News manufactured at a distance doesn't seem to be up to much.  This was one of seven paragraphs,  two of which wery mere opinions and  the other five intended for news items.  Four of the five were decidedly off  color as to their facts. One of'them  had the Dickson incline down 700 feet  through continuous ore and another  had 5500 feet of diamond drilling done  on Mr. Bradshaw's claims.  A reputation for reliable mining  news can never be made by that sort  of thing and a genuine camp doesn't  want it. Had the Gazette been as indifferent to the genuineness of its  mining news it would not carry the  weight with mining journals 'and mining men which it does to-day. How  this fictitious Tregor name came to be  mixed up in the same paragraph with  the Oregon is peculiar, for the owner-s  of the Oregon are not in the sensational business and will not relish the connection.

AN  APPRECIATION  A COMMENDABLE  SUGGESTION  Since   speaking   he-t   week   of   the  methods of taxation employed and the  effects,  of  wiping  out the  provincial  revenue   tax we   have   noted a   movement  on   foot  over in   the  Kootenay  for a  restoration   of the.  old   tax   in a  modified form.     The proposal is to introduce a head tax to be imposed upon  those only  who are at  present paying  no other tax,   and to have it known as  a hospital   tax.   the pi oceeds of which  will   go   into  a general   hospital  fund  for the province,   and out of this fund  more liberal assistance  to institutions  of   this kind   in the  province   will   be  possible.    The  ones who now have no  ;   stake in the country  except their jobs  for which they received good.pay ..but  still [>ay  no taxes, are in the majority  of cases the ones   who become charges  upon   Ihi': government  when they fall  ill.     Humanity dictates that the sick  man be  taken care  of whether he has  money  or not,   and it  is  in   that way  that a nrajoi ity of the hospitals through  the province get behind. Here in Hedley  the hospital   has been stuck   time  and again in   that way and put to serious loss.    If the money that formerly  was   collected  from   these  aliens  and  iion-iax-p'ayrng residents    in   poll-tax  were   put into a. general hospital fund  there   would   be  a fund   from   which  local   hospitals   that  meet with losses  through   the   exercise of  charity  and  attention   to the  indigent sick,  could  be  re-inib'.u'sed for such  losses.    The  tax   might  of course be  declared unscientific  again  by   the faddists   who  formerly  advocated   the  abolition  of  the general  poll-tax, but  whether rrn-  . scientific  or not it would   be both sensible and fair, arid the man who would  object to (laying it should get out.  When on this subject there is another  point  that deserves   some  notice.  Last  week we.  referred to the remark  of the. Slocan Record that the only exemptions to tax-paying  in British Columbia  were "Bohunks,  Chinks, Japs  and   Hindus   who  send  their surplus  earnings.home and can't afford.to.pay  taxes rn British Columbia."     To these  he might also  have added Pelouscrs  who, since the revenue   tax  was abolished, go scot free and do  not even  pay a  cent   of school tax    although  their children   have all the  benefits of  school attendarrce  which  British Columbians  have.     They   everr  get free  text-books  which is  paternalism  run  mad.     British Columbians know they  are able to  hold  their own  alongside  those from any other country   that  may come in, but they see no reason  why they should be handicapped with  all the burdens incident upon citizenship���������to carry  the  baby, so to speak,  while their alien competitors go light.  There is evidently much work  to do  Continued from page one  questions. He was mayor of bis town  Grand Forks, in 1908 and member of  the British Columbia Board of Horticulture from 1901 to 101)8. In 191)1 he  was defeated when he ran for the  House of Commons in Yale-Cariboo.  But he was elected in 190S and was  again returned in 1911 and on the accession of the Conservatives lo power'  was made minister of agriculture.  Mr. Burrell has been a horticulturist  piactically all his life and has .been an  extensive and successful fruit grower  in British Columbia. It was thought  in some quarters at the time of his appointment, to the olliee he now holds  that perhaps there were other men bet-  tei filled for the petition. But he has  so ably ndmiui'trrrd his department  that everyone N satisfied Mr. Borden  made a wise choice.  Mr. Burrell is a trood campaign  speaker', reasonable and sane and capable of arguing with any one .desirous of heckling. He does not attempt  to thrust his ideas down yourthioat  but by the use of argument and example he attempts to show where he  is light. If you cannot be persuaded  he does not think you are insane but  is always willing to concede that there  can be two points on any question.  One of his gieatist assets and perhaps his chief charm is his unfailing  courtesy. It does not matter who the  pel .son may be or what his station in  life he deals with all alike. Ho is  never abrupt or "short" but always  ready to hear-one out and his reply,  either agreeing or disagreeing is never  Hide or angry.. Hi-, manner is delightful and one. feels .instinctively that no  matter- under what conditions or what  the provocation he will alwayact the  pa11 of a gentleman. A public man,  pari icularly one holding a portfolio,  does not live in a bed of roses and they  cannot be blamed if they aie a bit  curt sometimes, but Mr. Burrell never  is. and this fact undoubtedly accounts  for ihe liking men on both sides of the  house and the aveiage person who  en mes. in contact .with .him have for  "Martin Burrell.  There may be men of greater eminence in the Conservative party than  .the..'member for Yale-Cariboo but it is  doubtful if; any.: of theiir" makes a'  stronger appeal to the public than this  quiet, sane, Canadian citizen of English birth..and so long as Mr. Borden  has.about him men of this stamp he  may feel sure that his government  will have the respect of the country.  Mr. Burrell has one fault and this  we would rather not reveal, but it will  probably come out anyway. He is a  golf fiend, it is a disease which but  lately got its grip on him but even  now we fear it is loo late to rescue  him. However-, public men have had  worse vices and still have a power in  the land. Perhaps he may outgrow  it as we imagine lie will find it rather  hard to discover, a golf course in that  tract of mountains which he is pleased  to call his constituency.  [Beg pardon! This is just wheie he  can find'a golf course���������right here irr  Hedley, and when he has time.to have  a round of the. Hedley links, he will  long for them for the rest of his days.  ���������Ed.]  ii  THE BAMK OF  When   this  expression   is   used   some  Canadians in slantly think   of Charles  Dickens' much-loved-masterpiece.   .

Bob Ha mill returned last week to  Hedley to resume his job at the central station after a lay oil' of a bout-  three months which he took for the  benefit of his health. Ho was in the  hospital in Nelson for a considerable  .    time.  The new crusher being installed is a  monster. All the parts have been  transported from the depot to the  works except one big casting which  alone weighs 19000 pounds. There is  no wagon truck here which will carry  it and it will be brought from the station on an improvised rail track.  Always deal with those who think  enough of your trade to ask'for it,1 and  ; the surest way to get the worth of  your money is to read carefully the  ���������announcement   of   those, who invite  ! your trade in their advertisements.  The day is past when-'merchants advertise what they are not prepared to  ���������carry out.  One of the chaps who skipped orrt  during the week leaving A. Winkler  short of $40.00 on a board bill had two  names, Rodgers and Jones which he  used as convenient. He spent none of  his money here and Went off with  it all in his jeans. Au attempt is being made to overhaul him somewhere  betweerr Princeton and Merritt as he is  known to have gone in that direction.  A colored outfit in the show line  were down for Monday and Tuesday  night in Fraternity Hall. When it  became known that sohie of them had  been hero before with the outfit that  showed in a tent some years ago it-  was considored a good thing to stay  away from. As a result their reception was attend with'a degree of frost  that would come handy on the skating  rink, just at the present time.  Ice is still ac a premium with the  hockey club. Parts of the rink failed  to stand up through the mild weather*,  and there has not been enough frost  at'riights since then to fully repair  the injury doiie. The congealed article may also be at a premium with  more than the liockeyists. This time  other years there has generally been  some move towards garnering in the  ice harvest to help to keep cool in the  coming summer. At present there i*s  nothing in sight in that line and there  must be sonre good hard freezing done  between now and March'in order to  have ice thick enough to put up for  the 'summer's' supply.

When  seen a few weeks ago \>y Mr. Beam  when lie "was' in heie it was working  awiiy as'industriously without'sup'er-'  vision as with it.' Possibly in some of  the later drilling operations it may be  made'some use of, for a gratuitous  water'supply of this kind will come in  very handy."       -     ���������-.-���������-..  The mild spring weather" at this season of the year may be very enjoyable,-  but there is reason to fear that it may  hot be very profitable. ' Especially to  those engaged in fruit-growing which  generally does best in a winter where  the cold is steady, these Jong spells of  mild' weather'arc not acceptable.' A  result of the mild weather thru, far-  noticed in Hedley is that a lilac bush'  has come-'out: in bud and doubtless  there are many others. Should there  be any marked commencement' of  vegetation arrrong the fruil trees, the  severer cold which is bound to come  sonre time before spring, is liable to  result ir. some winter killing. '  Golf loses none" of its popularity in  'Hedley"during this season-which is,  generally considered the. off season in.  this latitude. There was good golfing  every day last1 week arrd sonre fair;  scores made. ���������' This week also opened  auspiciously for the game, and all the  member's who can'spare an hour or so  to get'rn a round can always be counted on to do so, both 'for the practice  and the healthful 'exercise in the open,  air'and also for the novelty of playing  golf in January in this rreck of the  woods where the city folks back east  think we have no such thing as golf  links to play on at any time.  During the past week there have  been several cases of where men who  were.given work orr the-dam have  drawn their pay and skipped out with?  out paying " their' board' bills. The  amendment to the Criminal Act makes  this a criminal ofFence as it should be,  for- it is the same as any other kind of  thefc. Several of these men were kept  up by local hotel-keepers during the  time that work was shut down on the  darn and this is all the thanks they  get for the help which they extended.  Constable Sproule is looking for some  of these board-jumpers now. There  has beerr a lot of talk through the valley and blame dished out liberally by  busybody babblers to those who were  no more to blame than the babblers  are themselves. ' One of the loudest  mouthed is himself amenable to this  change in the Criminal Code for he  can be traced through "the district  during the past sixteerr years with the  trail of unpaid hotel bills and other  bills which he has left behind him.

Word has been received from Siinilkameen that the little daughter of  Mr. Sam Manery is very sick with  bronchitis at the .home of her grand  parents. We only trust that the little one soon gets well and strong  again. .  A large.numbei- of friends gave Mr.  and Mrs. Vader a very pleasant surprise on Friday evening last by assembling at their home. The number' was so great that they went over  to Mr. and Mrs. Madore's house and  spent a very pleasant time at playing  games and dancimg.  A minstrel Company struck town.  The showing and singing was not exactly first class but'the. music these  colored people turned out was of the  best, so it was arranged on Saturday  evening to have a few hours dancing  under the guidance of the fine music.  Quite a large number attended aud  had a jolly evening.  The Womens' Institute held their  Annual meeting in Knudson's Hall  last Thursday. There was a good attendance and eight new members were  added to the list making a. total of 42.  The various reports showed the Institute to be- in a flourishing condition  and the members feel much encouragement in taking up the work for the  corning year. The following officers  were elected. Pres., Mrs. B.C. Clarke;  Vice Pres. Mrs. Cawston; Sec-Treas.  Mrs. Frith; Directors, Mrs Tweddle,  and Mrs. Schilstra.  1 he Wornens' Institute are  making  preparations for a   series  of sewing  classes   to be held in Knudson's Hall  commencing on   January 19th.

The  lessons include   measuring,  drafting,  cutting and making up of garments.  The only expense in members  taking  these lessons is 75 cents  the price of  the chart.    Madam  Grobe  would like  to meet all   those who intend to take  the course at Knudson's Hall on Monday 19th.  at 2 o'clock to discuss the  work  to be undertaken and arrange  details.  The birthday party given by the  members of the Ladies Aid in Mrs.  Keelor's rooms Monday the 12th. was  one of the  most delightful evenings  spent by the large number present.  Both rooms were filled to capacity,  tables being set for- games of different  description. A nice little'programme  was provided and this was thoroughly  enjoyed by all.

It is true that a lot of stiffs that  are not worth the powder to blow  holes through tlie.ni and some of them  the poorest men on the job, came  down from Princeton. The constable  at Princeton has seen them here and  has expressed his satisfaction that  Princeton' has thus managed to get  rid of thcin, yet readers of the Star  are asked to believe that Princeton  has a grievance because of if.  , The fyles of this paper are open to  any man or committee of men to take  all the time they want to find a single  sentence conveying the idea which  this Keremeos liar says was conveyed.  Any slur cast upon the company in  in the letter referred to, is their own  affair and we have no brief whatever'  from them. It is merely the slur cast  upon this paper that we have dealt  with and it is for* ourselves only that  We speak.  It is years since the Gazette lias  closed its columns against the coward  ly anonymous scribbler and we have  had the satisfaction of seeing the most  respectable and reliable papers in the  province take the same stand, until  now the papers that do otherwise are  few and far between, and are certainly not increasing their influence. Why  a sensible publisher should want to  make his paper a vehicle for falsehoods  and allow cowardly, skulking liars to  bring discredit upon himself and his  paper has always been a mystery to  us.
