IL J. JONES, w. jr.  G. II. TURXKU. Soo't.  The. ;iiuiu.-il hospital hall for Will has  come ,-ind prone and is to he numbered  among the successful ones. The net  proceeds while not quite so high as in  some former years were nevertheless  well up to the average, and the event  passed very smoothly and .satisfactorily. In the matter of the supper a  different method was tried and it has  much to recommend it. At all events  it. relieved the women folk of a great  deal of laho������ and worry and that is a  consideration, J'or the social aspect  must not he altogether lost sight of in  the hiJior to obtain funds to keep the  institution going.  The outside representation was perhaps not up to former years, nevertheless Ii.iii-e.meos did fairly well and other  points were represented.  The hall was neatly decoiated for  the occasion and a different arrangement of the platform for the musicians  gave laiirer floor space for dancing.  "Many of the costauies were apt and  well carried out while a fair sprinkling  of them were as usual on such occasions, more or less nondescript.  The Mien's costumes were as a rule  rather .better than the ladies'and if a  prize had been given for the best  sustained character it would have  been easily won by J. Smith whose  make-up and acting of the character  of waiter were equally inimitable and  whose fussy obsequiousness and  eternal vigilance to keep after the  nimble sixpence never flagged for a  moment in the course of the evening  before .the hour .for unmasking came  about. The prospector's rig-out was  also apt and so far as the dressing (if  the part is concerned was well carried  out in detail. " Little Boy Blue " was  deeply cerulean in color and the horn  was there. There was a superfluity of  clowns on the,job and a few of Brooks'  6 JO from Mexico had strayed up in  this direction apparently still in search  of the long deferred pay.  The music supplied by Miss Lyall  and Messrs. Daly and Knight was well  to the liking of the dancers, while the  supper served at the Grand Union was  hy common consent voted excellent.  Following is a list of the maskers  although it is possible that some may  he missed as no provision was made  for handing in the names and characters represented. Those who may be  missed will therefore know that they  will have onlv themselves to blame:  Mildred Kirby. Miss Rita Kirby.  R. McCurdy. clown.  From Princeton :"���������Miss Kvans.

THE LATE JAMES STOTT  HOCKEY MATCH  The  hockey   match-announced   for  Saturday afternoon on the local  rink  between Hedley and Keiemeos turned  out something of a disappointment in  more ways than one.   The. exceedingly  mild day and hot sun made it pleasant  for spectators to   watch a game in the  open, but it played the  mischief with  the ice which became very soft and cut  up   badly.     Some   of, the   Keiemeos  players objected to play because of the  ice and also of the ahseneeof sufficient  boarding on llii!  sides:   The  rink   too  is a few  feet shorter (.than   the   usual  size where seven are played on   a   side  and in noli time was los-.t by this   manifestation of halkiness before anything  got going.    As several/ had  lost  their  shifts for the match ai'al there was too  large a crowd of spectators to be  sent  away  for  nothing   it  w-is finally arranged that a scrub  exhibition game  be given with  five on- a  side.    "When  the game finally got away, with K. H.  Carmichael of Keiemeos refcreeing. il  was  evident  that   the  softness of the  ice made anything  like  fast play an  impossibility and it   was  also  evident  that   on   the   line-up   there  that day  Hedley had very  much   the  better ol  cue argument.   The play  was   mostly.,  oil the Keremeos goal and J. A. Brown  who was guarding   it   for   Keremeo.-  had   numerous   stops'  to    make.    He  saved a. good many   times   but a  hall  dozen   got through on   him.'   Harold  Townsend who  played  a good  game  for Hedley got  three  of them.    Hill  Innis notched two and Les.  ltobinsoi.  one.      The   score     stood   (5   to   0   foi  Hedley.    Below is the line-up:  General   regret   was   felt   when   il  became known   on   Friday afternoon  that James Stott had died suddenly at  his  residence.    Just when  the event  occurred is not known  but it is not  likely, that many minutes had ��������� elapsed  before   he   was   found   by   Miss  Eva  Campbell who had occasion  to go  to  the house and found him  lying on the-  lloor beside an overturned coal scuttle  as if he had been suddenly seized with  heart failure or paralysis  when in the  act of putting coal in "the stove.    Dr.  Mel")wen was summoned but there was  nothing to be done and as coroner he  saw n<> occasion to  hold  any inquest.  The   old   gentleman   had   been    seen  several times during  the  forenoon attending to work about the ��������� house  and  was on his roof shovelling oil'the snow  which had began lo soften   about,  the  noon hour.    Deceased was 78 year.-, of  age and had lived in Medley since 1003.  Me came   to  the.province  from   Northumberland county and in   his   early  days   had   lived  in  Coboiug, Ontario,  which was mo.^t likely his  birthplace.  lie was  a    wheelwright  or  c.-u-riage-  maker by trade, a   calling  which   had  also been followed by his father."   Just,  when he came to the  pmviuee   is   not  exactly known but it was most  likely  in the very early seventies if not in tlie  late sixties, for he was running a large  carriage shop in   Yale  in  1871, where  lie had live forges constantly at   work  doing repairs  fur  the freighters  and  ML  Business Kfither Than Talk if  Feature of the Session  IMPORTANT BILLS1NTRODUCED  Debate on Address Sroug-ht Out Some  Important Features ��������� New Members  Shewing- Up Favorably���������D'oukhobour  Commissioner's Report Roug-hly Handled.

McDonald  who was trying to live oft' his wits and  is   in   a   fair   way   to  realize  that he  wasn't possessed of a sufh'eientamount  of grey matter to pull off the job with  even a moderate   chance   of   success.  The immediate charge upon which he  was arrested  was   that  of obtaining  money under false  pretense, and   the  manner in  which  he   went about   il  was to draw cheques on the Canadian  .Bank of'Commerce  in   Princeton and  cash them in Hedley with whoever he  could persuade to give him the money  on them.    On Friday he drew one  fur  thirty  dollars    in    favoi    of   Frank  Dollemore   and   managed   to  get the  money from Frank  for  it.    Again  on  Saturday morning he tried a like game  with A. Winkler of the  Grand   Union  but    before   giving   him   the   money  Winkler hiked up to the bank and got  the manager here to wire up to Prince  ton when   it  was  found   he  hadn't a  bean to his credit then;.    By this time  the Pollemoie chef)tie was in the mails  addressed to Princeton, and as it was  clear that McDonald  intended  taking  the afternoon train for Oroville he was  gathered   in   without   further   delay.  On Monday evening he  was  brought  up for remand pending  the return of  the cheques from Princeton; and a few  minutes after he   had   been   given a  remand for three days word came from  Coalmont that- he had given a   cheque  to Louis Mareottc  who  had   tried  to  cash it in Princeton and was given the  same information   troni   tin?   Hank  as  Dollemore.  As the convenience' of tho m-i-essary  witncsccswill be best served by having  the hearing in Princeton instead of in  Iledley the constable decided to take  hi in there.  i un a similar business in Lillooet  before that time.    Atone  time  he   had  ��������� teen   woith   considerable money   but.  somo   unfortunate   investments   later  ���������in in placer mining on  Siwash  Creek  ind Granite Creek caused heavy losses,  ���������Mit the old gentleman was not the one  i" repine and during the ten years  he  lived at Hedley he  has  been  a   most  iudusUious ���������and .^capable    workman.  For several   years  past he  has  done  nearly   all   the   painting   and   paper-  hanging in Hedley and was smart and  active in spite of his years and  always  cheerful.    It* he  had   any troubles  or  regrets he kept them to himself for he  was never the one to pour complaints  into the'ears of others.    A life of helpless   inactivity   would   have   been   a  severe trial to him and he  was  mercifully spared it in  the  sudden  manner  of his   taking  off.    A   few  years  ago  there were slight premonitory symp  tonis of paralysis when ho was threatened with loss of the  use of an  arm,  but the   difficulty   passed   in   a   few-  weeks.     The circumstance,  however,  leads to the belief that his death  was  due  to   a, return   of   the   malady   in  graver form.    He leaves to mourn  his  loss one daughter,  Ma tlie, in Hedley  his wife having pi edeceased him about  thirteen   years  ago.    The  funeral  on  Sunday   was   largely attended which  bore   evidence   of   the   general   high  esteem in which deceased was held.  The. debate on the address was completed in almost record time but  nevertheless many important, matters  were dealt with in it that will prove  helpful in tin; legislation ' which is to  follow. To have, it out of the way and  the House leady for the regular business of the session so early on. is a  distinct ad vantage.  During the debate on the addeess  the member for Nelson, who is a new  man, gave the House some, new light  on the Doukhoboiirs and showed  wherein the coinminsioner bad failed  to obtain valuable information which  the House should have had as the  result of so important -in inquiry.  The Attorney-General's bill to provide a provincial audit on the lines of  the Dominion audit has shown that  the administration is not satisfied with  anything.short of a. genuine independent audit and the officer. whom they  appoint will be vested with powers  which will place him beyond the  influence and control of the ministry.  The Premier's speech on tin address  and particularly his sentiments on the  naval question was an aptcontribution  as well as his outline of some of tho  more..-.important; '��������� legislation wliich  would engage ''the "attention or"the  present parliament.  'The-announcement-that the estimates would shortly be brought down  was evidence that the business of the  session would be prosecuted with  despatch to the close.  HOSPITAL MEETING  Annual General Meeting- of the Hedley  Hospital Association-Gratifying- Statement by Auditor.  GRANDPA PROTESTS  CARD OF THANKS  The uiulvrsigncd begs- to thank tho  people of Dudley for kindness shown  in her recent bereavement, in the death  of her father.  MATT.iI-:  S'J'OT'l'.  The following paragraph in last  week's Oroville Gazette by Frank M.  Dallam, si-., shows that the old folks  can always lie counted on to ,tand up  for their rights.     It reads :  "The Wenatchee  World  of Thursday last states that Frank M.  Dallam,  jr., would leave Olympia in a few days  to join his   father  in   the  publication  of the Oroville Gazette, and that Mrs.  Dallam and baby had gone to Albany,  Oregon, to vi.-it with  her  parents  foist few weeks before going to Oroville.  Now that item rings true enough with  the exception of the "baby."    If there  is a baby in the  family   then   the  boy  has been playing it low  down  on   the  old man. for this is the first intimation  we have had   that  there   is any such  adjunct to the family.    It is just possible that the young folks   have  held  back this information in order to work  :i surprise on the governor, or  fearing  that the grandfather might spoil  the  kid have refrained   from   mentioning  the incident for the moral   well  being  of the heir, or heiress, as the case may  be.    Even then it would  bo  taking an  unfair advantage  of this   end  of the  parent stein by carrying the  hootsey-  tootsey oil' to the  female side of the  house and letting the other grandparents get the first whack at doing the  spoiling.    We will look into this when  the male party to the frame up reaches  Oroville. and file a protest."  The postponed annual general meet-  injjof the Hedley Hospital Association  was held in French's store op Tuesday .  evening January 28th. The attendance-  wiis not nearly as large as could be  desired but there was no inclination to  lose further time.  G. P. Jones was elected chairman of  the' meeting and F. H. French  seci-ttary.  The minutes of last annual  meeting  were read and confirmed, after  which  the  Treasurer   presented 'the  annual  financial statement showing the finances of the  hospital  to   be   in   a   vwy  satisfactory condition compared   with  some former years.    The accounts for  thi! year showed careful   financing on  the pint of the   hospital   stall'   which  resulted   in  a  considerable  saving  in  the expense in different directions and  notably that of the mess.  This feature  was pointed out by the chairman who  expressed   the   gratification     of     the  Board to know that the hospital   staff  were working with them and endeavoring to aid the Board  in .making  ends  meet.    The year had   witnessed   a.   reduction in   various   items  of expense  and all this contributed   materially  in  enabling them In make   the  favorable  showing wliich the  annual  statement  presented.

METEOROLOGICAL.  THE GOOSE AND THE GANDER.  It is  a  funny  thing   that anything  imperialistic in its tendency that  may  originate  in   Canada,     unless  it  may  happen liy the meiest chance to   have,  had its origin   with  a   Liberal, is  sure,  to meet the   malignant   opposition   of  many Liberals in the Canadian  House  ot" Cdmmoiis.'   The tendency  to  'sneer  at and iielit.tle all   things   British   has  .lii.Timiii jus miii'li   a fixed   habit  with.ii  lot of them that they do   not seem   to  lie  able   to   help   it.      So   deep-rooted  does the sentiment appear  to   be   that  on the veiy slightest provocation it is  sure to  break  out,  and   where provi  deuce neglects to .supply the   provocation   it  will   break  out anyway.    An  instance of this was seen in the House  of   Commons   the   other   day    when  Foster's bill to give effect to the West  Indies trade agreement was up for its  second   reading.     A.   K.   McLean   of  "Nova Scotia, a prominent  member on  the  opposition   benches   and   an   erstwhile   cabinet ' minister in   the  Nova,  Scotia   provincial   legislature,   left   no  reason      to     doubt   his  antipathy  to  I'aigiishmeii   in   his    attack    on     the  Unionist   party     in     Great   Britain.  Until Hansard comes to hand to reveal  the ei'iini'cti' n in wliich he was led to  make his attack, tin;   public  will continue to   b*   mystified,   for  there   was  nothing in the meagre press reports of  the   occuri-ance  to   give   any   clue   by  way of .justilication.    lie   denied   the  Unionists any right lo   interest  them  selves in Canadian all'.-tirsor to express  any opinions thereon and   "travelling  Englishmen " who dared  to  spesik   < l*  Canada were to beware   henceforth of  his   wrath.      It  would   In;  interesting  indeed to know wherein the Unionists  offended.    And   it   would  be  likewise  interesting to  know   why  he  bad  no  word of condemnation of the action of  Premier   Asquith   in   espousing    the.  cause of reciprocity   with   the   United  States   to   help   Laurier   when     that  question   wan   an   issue,    before    the  Canadian electors.    In   view of  what  Tuft   has   revealed   concerning    that  question since the Canadian electorate  have spoken, it is now   up to  Asquith  to give some explanation of his  interference on that question,  and  ir the  Unionists in Great'Britain were of the  same kind of petty politician  as A. K.  McLean they would have made inquiry  ere this in a form that would compel  Mr. Asquith to acknowledge his error  The following are the leadings show  ing temperature, etc., for the week  ending Jan. 25,' 1913:  AT T1IK  MINK.  .Maximum i       Minimum..'

There are a. few more that should engage their attention, as the spelling  now seems to hi; a. sort of go-as-you-  please and tin; next time the Board  deliberate in a similar manner tliey  should settle the spelling of Chopaca,  on the boundary line between here  and Nighthawk, and also tell us  whether we should write the name of  the Great Northern station on Rock  'Mountain as Brideville or Bridesvillc.  Then when they are at it the name  Anarchist to another locality in that  part of the district should be forever  officially buried although we are not  aware that'it ever did have official  recognition, as the postoffice is named  Sidjey and the Parmer's Institute tire  known as the Glenside Farmers'  Institute.

Most of them satisfied  themselves with the general acceptation of the . meaning of an annual  leview, which is that of giving a  recapitulation of the work of the past  year in their respective communities,  but the Monetary Times set. itself a  much, more ambitious task. The  ordinary annual review is a, matter of  a few hours' reading, but. the. number  turned out by the Monefiuy Times is  a text-book or rather it is a combination of text-bonks for .-i year's study.  Thus it is an annual review in every  sense of the term to the. man who will  attempt to attend to his business and  undertake to thoroughly digest it.

We hope to see many of our  iledley friends turn out. Pah-view will  be well represented and we hope our  Princeton friends will do their best to  be with us.    This Friday. .Jan. 31st.  As the Editor has the notes of the  masquerade ball in band we can add  on behalf of all who attended from  this town, that each and every one  had a most delightful time.  The Hedley hockey team will be  down to meet the local team on Friday  this week.    Game to start at ?���������> o'clock.  L. D. Stutson of Spokane was a  visitor to town last Friday.

J. J. Armstrong returned.from a  somewhat extended-.visit, to the. coast  where he went to attend the meeting  ofthe Fruit Growers' Association in  which he has always taken a keen  interest and is one of the executive  for the. district. The proceedings were,  of special interest on this occasion.  Not so iniich attention, was paid this  time to topics dealing with growing as  with marketing the crop "and handling  the 'output generally. Last year most  of the loss was'due to the breakdown  of the handling end of the 'enterprise;  and it is hoped the organization is now  on a fair way to be remedied.  A. C. Kennedy was in this week and  reports that he has been successful in  'recovering six of the seven head of  horses which he recently lost. Moral  is when you lose anything do as Mi-.  Kennedy did and take the orthodox  way of letting the public know your  loss and soniebodv will send vou word.  J. A.

Station  A  POSER FOR GAME WARDEN  Game Warden   Schissler is Up Against  .a  Hard   One���������Will   He   Cinch   Jim?  If Not, Why Not?  A. funny   occurrence   took'place, on  Monday evening as   the   G.N.K.   train  was returning  from  Coalment which  will tend   to   place   the  district game  warden in a difficult position.    When  bearing Roany springs between   Coal  mont and Princeton the train ran into  a bunch of four deer on the track  and  the engine struck tine of them, killing  it.     Tlie  train   was stopped  and  the  killed deer was thrown on   the   tender  and taken along.    Now   this   happens  to lie the close season when it was unlawful "to   catch,   kill,  destroy,   hunt  for, pursue, or have in   his  possession  any of the animals or birds mentioned  in Schedule B to the Game Act."   The  game warden has cinched others, what  is  he  going   to   do   with   Jim   Hill ?  While it is very   true  that the  Great  Northern has bought its rightrof way  through the   province  so  far as   this  piece of ground is concerned and has  the right to run their  trains  over it,  no matter who or what may be standing in the way,   there is  nevertheless  no exception made in   the  Game  Act  when- the ownership of  ground  cuts  any figure to exempt from the law except in the case  of  deer  destroying a  farmer's crop and the Great Northern  had no crop  in   this instance.    If the  deer had been left on the  side  of the  track where it was found  when   killed  the. case would   have   been  somewhat  easier for the game warden, but  there  is the "having in possession" to be got  over and altogether the case is  an   interesting one of great possibilities.
