So far as can be learned it was  first noticed from the outside by the  man who lights the fires in the Grand  Union, although it -is0 possible that  Jack Way saw it at about the same  time or perhaps a little before. Way  was in tbe .habit- of kindling the fin's  in the New Zealand in the morning  aiid his room was off the kitchen. On  that morning he bad got up about '4:30,  a. m. and kindled a fire in the kitchen  range and went back to bed. He was  wakened by the smell of smoke aiid on  going out to see tbe cause, found the  walls and  floor around  the range in  New i'ork.

Meanwhile the man from the  Grand Union seeing the light went out  and he says he could have put it out  then if he could have obtained a few  pails of water but in bis excitement  failed to get it, although the tap was  tfrere'li rW iiiso^thebig-xVnrergen'cy pipe  with hose attached on both floors.  Between boarders and transients the  house was full that .night and while  many of them were awakened by the  pounding on their doors and the call  of fire they were not told that the flit-  was in the house, and consequently  were not hurrying as much as they  would otherwise have done. Harry  Rose was among the first of the boarders to be aroused us his bedroom was  nearest the point where the fire broke  through to the upper floor. He tried  to put the fire out but could make no  headway and it spread so quickly that  he had no time to go back to bis room  to endeavor to save anything but lost  all his effects except what he had on  him.  John  Jackson,  the  proprietor was  among ths first who had been aroused  and he and some  others   went along  the halls arousing all the inmates and  among them   the members of his own  family who had the narrowest escapes  of any.     His wife and daughters trying to gather up  some of their clothing  and personal   belongings and not  knowing that  the flames were spreading so rapidly had a narrow spueak of  it for when Annie and Emily Jackson  got to tiie bottom of the stairway they  were met by a  sheet of flame in  the  lower hall-way nnd  they  had  to  be  dragged  out through it.     Mrs. Jackson  undertook  to save  her purse in  which   there   were   several   hundred  dollars and grabbed   her little granddaughter but was  afraid to face the  sheet of fire in   the lower hall-way.  She couldn't decena the rope and carry  the  child  at the same  time and was  afraid to drop the child from the upper  window to those below.     At this time  Jackson  was outside the building and  he went  back in through   the fire and  upstairs  to  where  Mrs.   Jackson nnd  the baby were,and after directing Mrs.  Jackson to go down on the rope which  she did, he   dashed   down   the stairs  again  with  the baby  into the flames  and  .shielding  her under his arm  as  much  as   he  could,   he got  through.  The  baby  escaped   with   singed  hair  and  clothing but Jackson was pretty  badly burnt on the hands and neck.  Mrs. Jackson dropped her purse after  all and it was burned.  Many of the guests of the house had  to escape by the ropes supplied in  their bedrooms.  Some delay seems   to   have   taken  place    in   the    blowing   of   the   mill  Continued on Page Two  Oliver Wendell Holmes onceasked a  scientific friend how soon it mould be  possible for him  to  "buy a jiint of  horse power at the  cornier grocery."  This conceit of the gen^il philosopher  does not seem such a mirage when we  reflect   upon  this .new'   revelation  in  physical science���������ftadiiirii���������the   enormous energy and  nearly everlasting  potentiality that are stored in so small  a space. If the energy that Radium is  calculated  to exert irr 100,000   years  could be concentrated in a few days,  an ounce of radium  would drive a 50  horse  power motor   car  around  the  world  at thirty miles  per hour; or, a  gramme (less than 1-H0th of an ounce)  would raise 500 tons a mile high. Chas.  Allen Munn.  editor of the  Scientific  American, says, "Radium is destined  to disturb the equipoise of our leaders  of science and shake our whole system  of chemical physics to its very foundation."

Quartz  porphyry occurs more or less as vertical dikes 1 foot to 6 feet wide, cutting  the ore bodies. 28 species of minerals  have been observed in the ore body,  viz.: gold, silver, platinum, nickel, cobalt, tetradymite, pyrite, arsenopyrite, molybdenite, galena, chalcopy-  sphalerite, pyrrhotite, Quartz, Magnetite, linionite, calcite, feldspars,  pyroxene, wollastonite, amphibole,  garnet, epidote, Axinite, apatite, seri  cite, chlorite, erythrite,  The sedimentary rocks   consist( of  inter-bedded limestones and quartzites  called  by   Camsell   the Nickel  Plate  Formation and refer;ed by Dawson to  the Carboniferous Age.    Underlying  the Nickel Plate Formation  are inter-  bedded  limestones, cherty quartzites,  argelites, tuft's and breccias resting on  massive  limestone,   the base of which  is cut oil' by granite intrusion.  . Overlying the Nickel  Plate Formation are beds of volcanic material, fine  toll's, coarse breccias regularly bedded  and   indicating   deposition   in   water  with  a maximum   thickness of about  .L200,.r.feelt.  .���������Tin's ���������fnj-mnJJGU:,-.b/-.������N.bt\',ut  partly eroded from   the .Nickel   Mine,  exposing the ore bodies.   It is believed  that   extensive    faulting   has    taken  place,   which   will   no   doubt   render,  considerable geological   investigation  necessary  to explore  the ore   bearing  regions of the camp.    Payable ore lias  been    developed   along  a   north   and  south general zone about 4,500   feet in  length.     About   850,000  tons   of  ore  averaging about .$12 per ton have been  mined along this zone, and about $4,-  000.000 has been recovered in gold bullion.    It  is  interesting  to  note   that  new ore  bodies have  been  discovered  in   the same relative positions  to the  white gabros as the original ore body.  Some   of these   ore shoots   have   been  proven  to a  depth of about S00 feet,  and  in   places  payable ore  is   mined  about 80 feet in width.  The company owns a very large  amount of unprospected ground that  will no doubt give a long life to this  properly. 20 to -15 per cent of the assay  value was recovered by amalgamation  in the upper levels. It is not believed  that then- is any secondary enrichment in these ore deposits, but tbe ore  occurs as primary deposit. Some of  the richest gold ore appears associated  with nickel. Some ores carry 5 per  cent nickel arrd 20 to -10 ounces in gold.  This usually occurs in bunches, and  the nickel and cobalt cut uncommercial figure.  ���������As will be noted in another column  the business of Shntford's Limited is  being taken over by F. H. French  who has been manager here ever since  the business was opened out by the  firm of   W. T- Shatford & Co.  in 1902.  Later on   when  the   present   huge  store.was completed the firm  name  was  changed  and   additional   stockholders taken in to -coniform with the  Companies' Act under which the business was incorporated, and it became  known as Shatfords Limited.     What  name the present owneiv will choose  for the business has possibly  not yet  been decided on  by himself,  but   in  any case the name of Shatford will no  longer be used in whatever name may'.'  be chosen.     It  is   now over'twenty',  years since   W.  T.  Shatford   opened  out in  Veinoii tlie first general  store  to do  business  under, that  name  in  British Columbia and ii will be twenty  years next, spring since L. W. Shatford came out from the  east  to join  him in the enterprise and took charge  of the new branch  store   which   they  opened out in   Fairview in the1 spring  of 1S98.     A few years later they opened another branch in Camp McKiuney  whieh flourished in tin- palmy days of  that camp and was closed  when the  fortunes   of the campim  longer warranted   the .continuance.''and Hedley  offered  a more tempting field.    Thus  they have been 'mercantile pioneers on  tbe skirmish  line all   these years and  with- the -taking- over of the  Hedley  business   which was  on a larger scale  than any of the others  the last  con-.'  neetioii of the original business censes  to exist,  and only the  millinery store  of S.

From  there it falls by gravity over a grizzly  ton 10"x20" Farrel Type jaw crusher-,  and the oversize from this crusher  goes to a 0"x2(V" Farrel crusher, then  by a short horizontal conveyor- to a  1.500-ton storage bin.  There are 40 stamps (1,050 lbs.) lh to  S" drop���������-102 times per minute, in narrow Hoinestake type mortars weighing 8,000 lbs. each. 12 mesh screens  are used with a stamp duty of 1.7 tons.  A magnet has recently been placed  over the conveyor-belt from thu rock  crushers, and the "tramp steel*' is  taken  out here,  making a great im  provement in preventing stamp stems  breaking. It would be a still greater  improvement if this magnet, could be  placed before the crushers, so as to  allow the crusher lobe setup closer  for- fine crushing, its the stamp duty  raises with finer stamp feed.  The product goes to a hydraulic  classifier, the coarse- going to corrugated belt vanners and sand size to  plain belt vanners nnd lire slimes to  No. 3 Ueister tables. The concentrates  carry 10 to 12 ozs. gold. The tuilings  from the concentrates are classified  and the slimes go to the slimes plant-  nnd the sands to a 5".\22" dates Tube  IWill.  The   product  from   the  Gates Tube'  Mill goes io the Deister concentrator's.  Tailings  from   the  concentrators  are  treated   in    tbe   cyanide  plant.     The  sands   nre  treated   in  5"xM3"'  leaching  tanks���������treated   5   days  in   the   upper  tanks,   then  dropped  into  the lower-  tanks, requiring a total leaching period  of 10 to 12 days.   The slimes are treated in six conical bottom  slime tanks,  nil    connected,  up   with 0" pipe  to a  centrifugal pump for* agitation.     Zinc  dust is used for precipitating the gold  with a Merrill filter press.    The Oliver  Alter  presses are  used for  the slimes.  The  mill was   originally  designed for  tube  mill   legrinding.   but   for   some  reason   the Daly Estate refused  to allow these mills to be put in, and it was  done  only after  tho new owners, The  Hedley  Gold   Mining  Co..   took  over  the  property.     Up to  this  time over  $500,000 had been   lost in  coarse tailings currying from ,$2 to $S per ton in  gold, which was sluiced into  the river  and lost.

There is scarcely ai  pel the lawyer Who takes the j v;uUn\ of ashes to be found anywhere  case on spec, to put. up security i -only piles of black cinders and parti-  fo'r costs. The best men in the j ���������'<-Hy burned pieces of board, while the  lfcjj-Ml profession do not want j wooden foundation is almost all ,.1-  tiie champerty law for it throws  them open to suspicion that  they may be practising' it. The  piratical ones, however, do want  it. The best class of client will  not trust them and they have  to look for something else from  another class.  AN INIQTITOUS LAW  One of the worst pieces of  legislation ever put on tlie statutes of this province, although  it was done in pre-McBrido  days,-was the measure to legalize champerty. It was a fail of  Joe Martin's which he was determined to bring about, and  by specious reasoning and special pleading, "when socialism was  more of a dominant factor in  the legislation of the province  than it is now. he managed to  squeeze, it through. The law  allows a shyster lawyer to take  up cases on spec, find divvy up  the spoils with the litigant. All  that is necessary is to find some  man of means with a weak  spot or fancied weak spot in  his commercial armor and then  get some irresponsible without  a bean who can be twisted into  some kind of shape to fit as a  litigant or plaintiff and forthwith sail in for the rich man's  money-bags in true piratical  fashion. Perhaps it was some  such case which Byron had in  mind when in describing a real  sea pirate in Don .Juan he ex-  eusingly remarks that in  "pursuing bis watery journey  He merely practised as a  sea-attorney"  The quotation may not be verbatim as it is years since we  have seen the couplet or  thought of it, but that was-the  gist and it will nerve to illustrate our meaning for all present purposes. The more bean-  less and irresponsible the man  may be who i.s chosen to lill the  role of plaintiff the more accurately he will personate the  man whom doe Martin had in  mind when in his special pleading- for the bill he begged of the  legislature to pass it in order  that the poor man might obtain  legal assistance to fight the rich  man in the court. ATow the poorer the plaintiff the less he can be  made to lose if his case should go  against him and if he should  happen to win it will be clear  gain for him and the lawyer.  One has only to look about to  see many of the eases that come  up in court that are clearly the  result of tho champerty law and  the   sooner it is cither repealed  In view , of what Hedley has  been able to demonstrate to the  insurance underwriters in the  matter of our position to deal  with any serious fire it is now  up to them to give the town a  special rating, or ac least some  modification of , the present  tariff. The amount of money  which was saved to the insurance companies by the fire protection provided in Hedley by  the citizens through, yoluntary  subscriptions would pay the insurance premiums from this  town for possibly twenty years  to come, This was surely a good  turn that was done them from  Hedley and they have a right  to reciprocate it.  TESTED AND FOUND FIT  whistle for the general nlai m. The  night watchman failed to notice the.  fire until he was told of it by others,  and ninny who heaid the whistle complain that it was not blown like a fire  alarm and migbt.be taken for the  ordinary seven o'clock whistle. Never--:  the less the members of the brigade  mnde ��������������������������� very creditable turnout as.  soon as they got the alarm but by  that time the flames were bursting  out of both roof and sides and no fire  department in the pioviiice could  have saved the hotel after the fire had  got such a headway. A line of hose  was run from the hydrant at the corner of Irene Street and Scott Avenue,  and two lines from the one at the  corner of the livery stable, and in nd  dition to the 000 feet of hose belonging to the town fire equipment a quantity was brought over from the mill  and thus three lines were playing on  the bin ning building and on those in  greatest danger near by. Fortunately  there was no wind or the brigade  would have had a much worse job on  their hands. But nt one time it looked serious enough as it was.  Wind or no wind cinders were carried on to the lawns on Kingston Ave.  nearly half a mile away. The boards  ou the. livery stalile were burning; the  eaves of the Grand Union hotel were  browned and the pitch boiled out of  the painted siding: Schubert's building was on fire at one time but di owned out with a stream from one of the  hose lines directed on the spot. John  Ash's cabin about 15 or 21) feet in rear  of the hotel had all the shingles burned off it and the siding half bin tied  through during the intervals it was  left to itself while the hose lines were  playing elsewhere, but it was nol|al-  lowed to burn and not a thing burned  or injured inside of it. A few feel distant was Schubert's large, stable with  the loft full of hay and the gable open  exposing the. liny to the showers of  sparks from the burning hotel a few  feet nway.  Too much credit cannot be given to  the lire company for the way they  managed tilings and the plucky manner in which they stuck to their work  exposed to the heat aud the drenching  without prope.relothing.and too much  praise cannot In-given to tlie apparatus with which they were provided,  inexpensive and unpretentious though  it may be. Some place* wait until tlie  town is burned down before they do  anything and Hedley came pretty  nearly doing the same. Fortunately,  however, they didn't or the most of  the business portion of the town  would now be in ashes. Those who  contiibuled last summer to the purchase of the outfit must now derive a  heap of satisfaction from it and those  who have not yet contributed should  potlutch now according to their means  and the property interests they may  have at stake. There are many things  yet required to be added to what we  have. Now that winter is coming on  shelter must be provided for the host;  cart and hose, and rubber goods are  meeded for the men.  Not only thu ������nving  of the buildings  tact and in places large sections of thu  flooring unburnt but supporting huge  heaps of partially burned debris.  Jackson's gold watch was taken out of  the ruins unharmed- and the watch  still going Two sets of golf sticks  .which were standing in the. hallway  ditl not even have the wooden handles  burned when they were dug out of the  ruins.  There was $5001) insurance of which  it is understood .that all or most of it  was on the building. The salvage was  practically nil beyond the few'person-  al belongings dug out of the ruin's, so  there will be.little or no room 'for'  'haggling of any kind on the pat t of  tho companies carrying it.  The ��������� effect of the fire so far as the  licence is concerned is of course regrettable for it is generally known'and admitted in the town that no hotel keep'-  er who has ever been in Hedley has  obeyed the low as faithfully as Jackson did. There ..was never any Sunday selling nor gnniblin'g; the holel  was never a rendezvous for tinhorns  nor lawless creatures of any kind nnd  there wis never any affiliation with  the redlight district nor selling of  booze to . Siwashes. Whatever Jackson may decide on doing now. it will  be a, distinct loss to have one so law-  abiding go out ,of the business here,  for every man who will respect the  law as he has always tried to do is  .bound to have a healthful influence, on  others;  . ,        NOTiiS  The fire alarm provision is the weak  point nt present in Medley's fire ..protection.' The plowshare gong is a  failure, and a good fire bell or some  other means is needed. Fire diill is  needed too with the nightwatchman  and night shift' at the mill an that-  quicker action may be got on the  whistle and high pressure turned on  without smiiBim'fi having to go np to  tell them to turn it on. The fire blast  on the whisHe should be different  from any other so that there will be  no mistaking*-,'U;  Theie is not a-plank of the sidewalk  between the New Zealand Hotel and.  -SchiibertV store" that is "burned and  some of the planks of the hotel platform itself are unburned. Who says  Hedley hasn't fire protection?  The meekest and most insignificant  looking thing to be seen the morning  after the fire was the 'home-made  hose reel which was sitting in the  middle of the street opposite the livery stable. The casual observer who  did not know what it was or what it  could do, wouldn't have given $15 for  it; but there it was sitting within easy  reach of over $75,000 worth of property it saved. There wasn't even a speck  of red paint anywhere about it to help  it to blow its own born or say "look  at me", but there were citizens who  wen: proud of it nevertheless.

Frank Bailey of Princeton is in town  this week. . v '  At Hedley on November 21st 1012,  to Mr. and.Mrs. A..7. Kin-;, a daughter.  One. of the reasons given for the line  mild November is the preparation of  the skating rink in readiness for winter frost.  The only thing how to interfere with  golfing is tlie shortness of the days.  The weather and the condition, of the,  links are both ideal.  r.MYD. Pickard has a double then T.  D. No. 2 was in town last week selling  autos. All that was lacking was.T.D.'s  josh and banter. ������������������������������������������������������  Dr.Juckson, dentist,arrived on Fri-  drty last and put in a few busy days.  He had engagements with, patients in  his regular practice at Penticton and  had to hurry hack.  It doesn't pay after all to 'jump hotel  bills and play the deadlieat generally.  One individual found this out in Hedley last week after-numerous pressing  invitations to pay in advance.  The Princeton Star started up quite  a vigorous little smudge last week to  smoke out some -vermin'; These disagreeable little demonstrations become  necessary sometimes in the interests  of the public.  ; To-day is Thanksgiving day over; in  the United/States and all handsale  filling up on turkey. Whether they  have reason-to be thankful on the outcome of the elections is a matter: upon  which there will be room for difference of opinion. t.  Owing to Rev. A. H. Cameron being  called to Calgary by the death of his  sister there, was no Presbyterian service  held here on Sunday evening last.  Word is received from Mr. Cameron  ��������� ��������������������������� to the effect that he will not be back  before Dec. ,31st and his next service  in Hedley will be on January 5th.  There is rejoicing in Oroville for  they have at last received assurance  that steel is to be laid on the grade  between Oroville southward to Pat-  eros. This piece of grade was made  four years ago or more and has been  given time to grow and mature several good crops of weeds.  Jimmy Riordan, the king of Billy  Goat Mountain, spent Sunday in Hedley. He had just come down fronr his  summer resort and left about 15 inches  of snow there, to find dry dust orr the  streets of Hedley. lie prefers not to  run the risk of freezing any more  fingers off and has come down a few  weeks earlier this year.  Dou't forget the English bell-ringers  in aid of the hospital on Saturday Dec:  7th. This is a high-class troupe of entertainers. There nre a great many in the  company and all of them artists, John  Cosgrove is bringing them here and it  is well known that he has a faculty for  hosing out the best.  Them is a Nickle Plate in Rossland  Camp which is being worked in-a small  way underlease. While the production  does not mount up into very large figures the values arc quite prepossessing.  A recent shipment of a carload of the  ore gave a return of a little better than  $50 per ton after transportation and  smelter charges had been *-aid.  The date of the Woodman's ball has  been changed to Wednesday Dcc.lSth  and in that way it will rrot conflict  with the Hospital benefit entertainment to be given on Friday Dec.21st.  The Wood men committee are busy  perfecting arrangements and nothing  will be left undone to make thooccasion  a pronounced success.  During the excitement of the lire  last week a bushing of one of the hose  iio///,le.s was handed to a by-stamler to  he taken care of. Unfortunately the  one who gave it cannot recollect the  party to whom it was- given, .and  possibly the one to whom it was given  put it in his pocket and has forgotten  about it. Will the party who has it  kindly return.  On Saturday morning the, manure,  heap in rear <)f the livery stable 'was  doing a little smoking on its own account. Atfirstsomavyho saw it thought  the smoke was due to heating of the  manure but there was a suspicious  odour of smoke accompanying .it and  when dug into with a fork the pile was  found to be all on fire underneath.This  fire had evidently caught from the burn  -ing hotel across the way two mornings before, arid had smouldered there  all that time. ,  I. A. Dinsnrore,* cliief licence inspector, was irr town last week making his  round of inspection for the general renewal of hotel licences a month hence.  He reached Hedley just in time to see  one of the 'hotels snuffed ..out. hpre.His.  interpretation of the,Liquor Licence  Act is that the destruction of a hotel  by fire lapses tlie licence, and the  licensee in order to obtain another must  begin bis novo ,-is if no prior licence  had been in existence. y  District'ioad supervisor Turner was  in town last week accompanied by  Engineer, Cleveland who is keeping  close tab on the surveyors who are  laying out the route of the trans-provincial auto truck road. Mr. Cleveland expects that next season will see  much larger gangs worked on this  road especially on' the unspanned portion of the road between here and the  coast, and also on other links in the  province where there are now no roads  in existence. Once the gap between  Princeton and the coast is completed  there will then be communication by  means of existing roads for a long  distance east.       ;  The In test advices from the Golden  Zone storm centre at Victoria are  more assuiing and begin to breathe of  amity and. sweet concord. If they  should prove authentic it is a consummation devoutly to be wished. Heretofore the news has all been of wars,  and rumors of War, and numerous  communications by post and wire told  of-'the'elimination of first one and  then ahotiier until "elimination" was  stock word in town. It  as.funny and as en-  as a tale from Dickens and  one began to associate these numerous  "eliminations" with the "pulverization" of our old friend Uriah.  A lather serious breakdown in th  smaller of the two crushers at the mill  has been cutting down the tonnage  milled and spoiled the chance of making an exceptionally good record this  month. While the powerful magnet  on the conveyors hits saved a. great  deal of trouble irr the batteries by fishing out pieces of steel which the miners  contrive to send down in the ore, the  crushers have no such protection and  must take all that comes. They generally manage to masticate ordinary  doses of steel but when it conies to  grinding the heads of stone hammers  there is likely to be a broken jaw or  two if not worse.  The committee of management for  the cemetry held a meeting on Monday  night and decided on raising, by subscription, the sum of $101) for cemetry  purposes including the fencing of the  grounds. The deeds of the ground have  been made out by the company and  forwarded here and everything is now  clear to go ahead. The land is not coming out of the allotment made to M.K.  Rodgers as some have understood but  out of the company's portion, arid it is  they who are making it over to the  town for cemetry purposes. It is hoped  that all will contribute liberally for it  is better to have over the amount estimated than under. It can all he laid  out to advantage.  becoming-a  was fast getting  A predatory owl has all this fall had  designs on the poultry yards of Kingston Avenue and with each visit had  been greeted with a volley which  made him drop his prey. It is always  on moonlight nights he makes his invasions but. since the first volley was  fired at him in mid-air and he managed to escape, he takes care now in  making his get away to keep along  the ground when- it is took dark to  see him.  Clark, the erstwhile publisher of the  Coalmont Courier, was up before local magistrates in Princeton on Monday last charged with burglnn/.ing  the premises of his'bencfaetoi-, F. P.  Cook, and was sent up for trial to it  higher court.  The Gazette has hail the assurance  that the (J ran by Hay fownske advertised here two weeks ago is a genuine  business proposition. There is no laud  nearer the Hidden Creek mine that is  fit to be sold to the public as town lots  and the promoters of the G ran by Town-  site are men who can be depended  on to do the fair thing. Neither is  there any strained relations between  them and the operators of the Midden  ('reek mine whic is owned byaconcein  that is too big and has other interests  too great to warrant them dabbling in  townsiting, by offering lots to the public even if they had suitable land to  spare lor that purpose. The statements  made in the Phoi'iiix Pioneer to which  we referred appears to have been altogether incorrect. Granby Hay town-  site is not two miles distant from the  smelter but only 800 feel and is not  across the bav but on the same side.  J. W. Whiteley of Vancouver provincial organizer of1 the Loyal Orange  Association, paid .an official visit to  the local Orange Lodge last Saturday  evening. In an interesting 'address  Mr. Whiteley gave an account of the  progress of the Order in British .Columbia, and throughout the Dominion.  In four years the ' membership shad  doubled in British Columbia, and there  are how eighty-one lodges in /the  province. He had.organized nine new  lodges already this year and expected  to organize three niiire before the year-  closed. Last year (here were eighty-  nine new lodges organized in tho Dominion of Canada and after deducting  all losses from any'cause whatsoever  there was a. net increase in ruei'nljer-  ship of over ten' thousand. Mr. White-  ley predicted that the report for 1D12  would eclipse that of 1911 and would  show that the present year had been a  record one for the Association, both in  the province and the Dominion. During the evening one candidate was iiv  itiated, two advanced to the^purpje,.  two to the blue, arid t,wo to the Royal  Arch Purple degree., The election of  officers for the ensuing year-look pjace,  and resulted as follows':''.        ,.

Cleveland, chief engineer trans-  provincial road survey; O. S. Willuin-  sen, engineer in charge: and U. Parker came over in an auto from Penticton last Friday and after spending  a little time on the line of survey, proceeded to Oroville.  Mr. and Mrs. Meausette and family  left on the morning's train for East  Princeton where they will make their  future home. During their stay here  of nearly live years in Keremeos they  made many life long friends who were  sorry to see them leave town, but  knowing thai they are moving to a  new and growing town wish them the  best of success in the new surroundings.  .1.
