Joe Martin, while not particularly  complaining of the, hill, said that the  government was trying to make the  miners pay for the deficit caus d by  lowering the license, of whisky sillers.

The. lievelstoke Gun Club Tournament starts this afternoon at 2 o'clock.  It is a matter of regret that there is  only one visiting team���������from Vernon.  The. gun club have gone to consider-  'able expense, in getting' the grounds  fixed up and also in the preparation of  a programme, which consists of 10  events, good prizes heing offered in  each event, the citizens of the town  subscribing generously towards the  same. A number of clubs signified  their intention of sending teams in the  event of a tournament being ai ranged,  but they have failed to do so. lievelstoke sportsmen have ajways treated  their visitors well and tin* lack of interest shown on ihis- occasion is \cry  poor encjuragement for the. future.
