W.  .lames, a  deserter from the American army, accompanied   'by    a    Canadian    named  Frank    Wilson,   held up the   hotel at  Okanagan   Mission,   andc,madc   their  escape.    They were seen   in Penticton  011 Monday by   the   proprietor  of  the  B.   C.   hotel anil    hy    W. A. McLean  who sized them up I'or suspicious character's and  hearing of tin; Ok. Mission  holdup, concluded that they were likely suspects.    They at once notified the  policeman who Obtained the assistance  of  constable Aston   and   by    drawing  guns   on them   arrested   the   two men  in the B.'C. hotel, 3londa\* night.    On  them   was   found a   heavy   automatic  revolver and rifle combined and a supply of  oOD rounds of  dumdum Indicts.  Constable Aston    had    the  prisoners  liaiid-cuff'ed and  leg ironed  and took  them on board the boat, which was to  pull out at-"i o'clock   in the  morning,  preferring  this course to that of locking them   up in the  cells at Peutictoii  and having  to get them   on board the  boat so early in the morning.    Me hail  them   in the  same   room   on the-boat  with   himself and evidently (as nearly  all   tlie  constables  are in the habit of  doing)   thought   he  could  safely   and  comfortably  go to sleep  as usual  and  enjoy his night's 1 est.  It is presumed that he-had-the outlaws' revolvers aud ammunition in a  satchel with him in the room, to figure-  as evidence at the preliminary hearing.  When the boat reached .Peachland 011  Tuesday morning the two men who  had beaten the policeman into insensibility when they got him asleep and  got his keys away from him to open  the door and open the satchel to regain possession of their revolver and  ammunition, quietly landed from the  'boat and going through Peachland  made for the hills.  Aston was found in an unconscious condition in the stateroom and  ' in addition to being battel ed up with  the 'hand-cuff's had received a .-shot in  the head as well. This is believed to  have been tired as the whistle blew for  landing at Peachland which prevented  anyone from hearing the shot.  The men were believed to have headed across the hills for Princeton or  Hedlev. Latest reports state that  the unlaws have been captured and  are at Kelowna; -ilso that Aston who  was shot twice, in head and body, is  stilll unconscious and with little or no  hope of recovery.

EDITORIAL COMMENTS  'If the Conservative papers of Brit-  ish Columbia- eaii get up nothing  more original iu the. way of a slogan  than the poll-parrot expression "Let  McBride finish his work" they should  indeed '-Go away hack and sit down."  It. is difficult to see what object Sir  Charles Hibbert Tapper had in giving  that fool interview to a. Vancouver  papei. If it wa.s simply to find out  how cordially he has been making  himself disliked in the pro vine a lie  has certainly succeeded in rounding  up some, useful data, to enable him to  come.to a conclusion on the subject.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier's bi>lt on the  Manitoba boundary question was overshot anil lie has found out moreover  that an overshot bolt may turn  into a veritable boomerang. In 1SS5  the Liberals at Ottawa were placed in  much the same kind of a dilemma  when Sir John Macdonald caught  them cleverly by having a, Quebec  member, Landry, move, the previous  question in the Louis Riel discussion.  In this latest attempt to stir up racial  and religious strife it was not necessary to set any other trap than that  provided by themselves. Nemesis  seemed to be bossing the job and precipitated the ordeal, which wa.s that:  of compelling Sir Wilfrid to vote,  with th" government or make it necessary for the English-speaking prot-  estant Liberals to choose a new lender.

Members of the Golf Club should not  forget the adjourned general meeting  this (Thursday) evening, at <S p. in. at  Lhe Siinilkaiueen.  One of the pupils of the Hedley  school requested us to thank the  School Board in.their behalf for providing the school with a basket-ball  outfit.  ���������lack Corrigan and Robert left for  Westminster on Tuesday where their  father was taken to the hospital, from  Hope, suffering from an attack of  pneumonia.  Users of coal in Hedley speak of the  very great improvement of the grade  of coal they are getting since the  Princeton Coal and Land Company  have installed the new equipment for  screening and sorting.  Mrs. Gillespie .and Homer McLean  ai rived back home from California, on  Tuesday's train. The trip was a hard  one oii Mrs. Gill-'spio as travelling  never agreed with her at any time, but  she .-,tood it remarkably well.  G. H. White-man, accountant and  sales manager for the Piinceton Coal  and Land Company, spent the week  end in Hedley and took advantage of  the opportunity to-renew his acquaintance with the Hedley golf links in a  few rounds of the course during his  brief visit,  Archie McEachern, who has been  working at tho Apex all winter, got a  piece of rock in his eye on Friday last  and Mr. Pickard brought him out  with him to have it removed, as it was  too finny imbedded in the eyeball to  budge or be dislodged by any moans  at hand at the camp.  Ballots were distributed iu the Presbyterian church on Sunday night to  niemb rs and adlu-ients to vote on the  question of organic union between tho  Methodist, Presbyterian and Cougre-  g-itionalist bodies. Some of the marked ballots were turned in and the balance will be. collected, in a few days.  It is, a rather pleasant sensation to  be relieved of the turmoil of an election. No matter how little the outcome of an election may be in doubt  there is nevertheless a spirit of contention abroad that is fatal to the  promotion of the best feelings of good  neighborship and we can well dispense with the excitement for the sake  of the peace.  T. D. Pickard paid Hedley a brief  visit at the end of the week and went  out to the Apex, upon which work is  still going mi. He has been east as fai  as Montreal and was on his way back  to Vancouver. He thinks it* a mighty  cold country back there in eastern  Canada and was glad to get back to  the more genial climate of the Pacific  province.  A relative in Ireland sent ye editor  a tiny peat basket filled . with shamrock���������not the imitation which often  passes for it but the rale genuine  shamrock fresh from the peat hog  and packed in peat moss which allowed it to retain its native moisture  and the smell of the bog.
