The Board of Licence Commissioners  for South East Yale met in Fairview  on 'Friday, loth, when ii number of  applications for new licences and for  renewals of existing licences came up  for consideration.  ' The principal interest centred in the  case of the Central Hotel nt Keremeos,  which had incurred the displeasure of  the Chief Licence Inspector, who, as  announced by him in a previous issue,  had reported to the Board that the  Central Hotel was being run as a  saloon, and who -claimed to have  liad authoiity from the Board to order  the hotel to be closed. As f,he Board  had not met to consider the question,  and the Inspector was evidently acting  from some motive known only to himself in harassing needlessly the holders of the licence, the chairman of the  Board very properly stepped in, as he  was in a position to know that Mi*.  Venner's claim that the place was  being conducted as a saloon was not  founded on fact, for the holder's of the  licence, although occupying temporary  premises after'the fire,' were giving  both sleeping and eating accommodations. Here was an, occasion for the  exercise of a little common sense as  well as justice oil the part of the Inspector, and that had not.been forthcoming. The. Board very properly  saw the question in the right light and  granted the licence.  All other applications were granted,  with- the exception of that of Mrs.  Blyth for the Blythwobd hotel .-.at  Westbridge.  The Commissioner's for the Nicola  District, meeting at Princeton, granted  all applications. _..'...['���������.  LOCAL NEWS.  Mr. D. C.

TWENTY-MILE ROAD.  Good   Force   of  Men at Work and  Fair Progress Being Made.  Operations in  the  building   of the  new road up Twenty-Mile, are now on  in earnest.    Beginning at the  bridge  below the old charcoal kiln, the new  road   follows   the   east   bank   of   the  creek, where an easy grade has been  obtained for a distance of half a mile.  As to the work already done, generous  width and careful grading are particularly noticeable.     The more  difficult  part of the construction is now entered  upon,  cribwork,  filling and  bridging  being necessary to make the ascent of  the  canyon.    The  amount of money  appropriated will not finish the work,  but "well begun is half done," and the  portion   already   constructed   reflects  credit on  foreman  Deardorf and his  nine men.  ,, Qn Sunday, Ling (something),' who  operated a laimdry ' oii Ellis avenue,  nearly opposite the. Methodist church,  moved his plant down to 'iChinatbwn."  He.is now located in the new building  recently put up by Mu Yuen in that  quarter. This is a good move on his  part, as it was only a.matter of time  when his plant would be out of place  on that street.  Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Schubert and  son Bertie, returned to Hedley on  Saturday, having been in Penticton  for the past two mouths. Mr. Schubert predicts a very prosperous season  for the town by the lake. Many settlers are coining in to take up land,  and the heavv rains have done much  to help the growth of the numerous  young orchards which have been set  out during the last few seasons.  METEOROLOGICAL.  Tlie new barber shop fitted  up by  The Penticton stage is making good j E. D. Boeing Was made ready for occu-  time by the. White Lake route, not-,  withstanding the fact that the distance  is four miles longer. Part of the way  is rough and the climb from Keremeos  is stiff for a mile or so, but the greater  part from Wh ite Lake to Penticton is  in splendid condition, permitting of  good time being made. Mr. Welby's  stock is in very good condition and in  meeting the demands caused by increased travel.  pation last Saturday. A new porcelain bath tub, 0 feet in length, has  been installed, and also ?i sink of the  same material. Hot and cold water  connections have been mado, the water  being heated by a furnace in the cellar  under the building. Geo. Abies, who  was expected to occupy the. new premises, left town ob yesterday morning,  but it is likely another barber will  come in when the trade demands it.

The  day was almost a perfect one for a  game; not' enough sun to make it too  warm, and a nice breeze blowing down  the valley which kept tlie air fresh  and cool!  ..- The game was ..called by umpire-  Boeing at' 3 p.inV, with Keremeos'at  the biit. The visitors started out well,,  scoring, two in the'first and two in  the' third inning, but after that they  crossed ithe plate only three times.  The "boys in bhib"'scored -'three times  in the first inning and eight in the  third, and with this lead the result of  the game was never in doubt.  The play, for the most part, was not  fast, though the players on both teams  showed good spirit and did their best  to make the game as interesting as  possible. .  A noticeable and pleasing feature of  this game was tlie  entire absence  of  wrangling and disputing on the field.  An umpire, is only human and is liable  to make mistakes even while doing his  best to deal fairly.    Turner,  the Keremeos captain, thoroughly understands  the game, and when he bad any  objection  to make he did it in a quiet,  gentlemanly manner, thus doing away  with all the fuss and loud talk which  was so evident in former games.  The teams were as follows :  Kbremeos���������Bailey, Richter, Turner,  Slatter, T\ Daly, W. Daly, McCurdy,  Innis and Daniels.  Hedley���������Irwin, Brule, Mott, Watson.

The.amount of buncombe, in  which some papers oi: usual eclir  tovial intelligence can at times  indulge was illustrated by the  -St Paul Dispatch the other day  when, 'fi\ commenthig oh the  death of Gabriel Dumont,', lieutenant .of Louis Reil in the Canadian northwest rebellion of  1885. It referred to. Keil as one  who "a hundred years from now  will have taken his place among  those victims of British fear like  Napoleon and Joan d'Arc. The  "rank.;may seem too high for  those of us -who lived in the day  when Louis Reil was almost  king, but without doubt he isia.  figure to appeal to the imagi-  llation, and the future may do  . him'the poetic justice which  Canada was forced to deny him."  It is almost incomprehensible  that a writer claiming to be-well-  informed should declare that  "criticism will always be visited  upon the British government at  Regina. That execution fol-  lowed a regularly conducted  trial in which Reil had every  opportunitj" under the law to  clear himself, hut as a result of  which the jury, without hesitation, found him deserving of  the fate that was subsequently  meted out to him. Kiel's character was such as to call forth  no sympathy except from those  of his own race, and among his  followers there were many who  when they realized how he had  misled them through false representations, were willing to  admit that justice was vindicated when he was executed. The  upraising which he led in 1885  was without j ustification, and  he was intelligent enough to  know that there was never any  prospect that it would succeed,  yet he recklessly started a small  war in which many lives were'  lost. In the rebellion of 1869  his true character was even  more glaringly manifested in  the cruel and treacherous murder of Thomas Scott at Fort  Garry.  Had he fallen before the bullets of soldiers in battle or been  shot down by the small body of  scouts that effected his capture,  there would have been little  sympathy wasted . upon him.  But since he was given a judicial trial and was condemed to  death maudlin sentiment strives  to make him a hero and martyr.  ���������Spokesman-Review;.  In the death of Sir Hector  Langeviti  another of the "few  rehuiihing Fathers of biohf^deration has departed.    Sir Hector  was   the   natural successor  of  Sir Geo. Cartier as leader of the  French-Canadian Conservatives.  He was an able organizer and  administrator   and   for    years  held .powerful sway politically  in his own province.   -The scandals which developed in his department were the beginning of  the end of the long Liberal-Conservative rule  in  Canada. and  were '.exposed as the result of a  quarrel   between   himself   and  Mr.   Isreal   Tarte,   who . afterwards joined the Liberal administration.    It is  of especial interest to know that Sir Hector  was active   in   promoting  the  union of British Columbia with  Canada,  and one of   the  first  official reports on the province  was prepared by him and submitted' to' parliament.    He- had  only to live a feAV years longer  to have seen the downfall of the  Liberal government upon charges of political corruption much  .more  serious   and   widespread  than any with, which he was  associated   and   which   cast   a  shadow over his political career.  Despite   his  political   misfortunes,' he deserves to live favorably in the memory   of   Canadians for whom in his day he  performed good service.���������Ex.

Now that J. J.

Mrs. W. A. McLean and family are  again taking up their residence in their  house on Scott Ave. Miss Myrtle, who  has been attending Columbia College  for the past year is expected home for  the holidays shortly.

What is,more delightful than a trip  up the mountain on a .beautiful day in  June!- On Sunday last a party of Hed-  leyites took a jmint up the hill just behind the town, starting about 9:00  o'clock and returning about 2:30.- The  weather was all that could be wished  for, and the climb although a little  fatigueing, was fully compensated for  in the view of the superb scenery from  top. The aiv was perfectly clear, and  a view of the valley for miles up and  down the river could be obtained.  The descent, though at times somewhat perilous was much faster ,than  the journey up, as it was made down  one of the canyons, where the crumbling rock and sand made many a  miniature land-slide when started.

A recent issue of the St. Thomas  (Ont.) Daily Times makes mention of  honors awarded to Theophile J. Meek,  B. A., a student at the McCormick  Theological Seminary, Chicago. In  the summer of .1901. Mr. Meek w.as  stationed at Fairview as Presbyterian  minister, and was a very popular  young man. The prize won by him  was the Nettie F. McCormick Travelling Fellowship, which is awarded  annually for the best writing on a  given subject, and entitles him to two  years' study at any home or foreign  seat of learning. The subject this  year was "The Date and Origin of the  Book of Dueteronomy" and Mr. Meek's  paper was adjudged the best ever  presented for the competition in any  year. He has chosen a course in the  University of Berlin, Germany, and  will leave for there shortly. His Fair-  view friends will no doubt be pleased  to hear of his success.  Mr. F. P. Howard begs to announce  to the people of Hedley and vicinity that  he will make regular weekly trips to town  with a supply of fresh fruit and vegetables.  Reserve your orders for him.  CEYLON TEA.
