Fatal Accident
A very sad accident occurred at
Christian Valley about 9 a.m. on I
July 32th, when John Alexander]
Christian,    a   highly   respected
farmer of thai district was kicked
by a horse.   He had taken the
wild and nervous animal in from
the range to haul hay and while
unloading,* the horse kicked the
pitchfork   which  Mr., Christian
was holding driving it with such
force that the handle split and
a splinter of it ^lodged in the nose
making i-a  verv nasty gash.   In
the fall of the'' load he also received a cracked skull.   He was
taken to Steeves' ranch and Mr.
Adams brought him to. the Greenwood and District Hospital.
Note���Since the above was put
in type   Mr. Christion died on
Friday morning at 2:30 o'clock.

Expose Fradulent
& Mining Concerns
At the closing session of the
international mining convention
in Nelson last week, Hon. William
Sloan, minister of mines, in the
principal address of the_ three
clays sessions, stated that in consequence, of the great movement
in British Columbia mining, "men
of mining repute and men of no
repute" were coming into the
. province and making flotations,
To keep down unprincipled flota-..
tions, and to keep the name of
the province fair before the world,
was now a first duty, of both th*.
government and all the citizens,
lie said. While the government
did notobject to a fairly glowing
account of a prospect, it held that
'a mining prospectus must not depart from the facts.
Scores of mining prospectuses
had been changed in the last
year, he said, to suit the government's conception of what was
fair protection to the investor,
after the resident engineers concerned had passed on them. In
four cases in the past year, the
minister said, he used his discretionary power to advertise
flotations as in the government's
opinion unjustified, ten sales
agencies in Vancouver closing
their doors the day one of these
advertisements appeared.
"Believe me, the. effect of this
was salutary," he said, "and our
course found approval throughout
the mining world."'
He declared the _ government
stood firm on the policy laid down
by a former premier, Sir Richard
McBride, that the mining laws of
British Columbia should not be
changed, and that security of title
be assured in this province.

Vernon Nurses
Lead in Exams
Signal honours won by-graduates of the Vernon Jubilee Hospital in the recent*, examinations
for the degree of Registered Nurse,
will add to the fame of the local
institution. For two graduates
from this school to lead those
from all schools in the Province is
convincing testimony of the proficiency of the hospital and the
training school." It is generally
thought that nurses do not- get
so thorough a training in the
smaller schools as in" the larger
ones, but success of the Vernon
nurses is a convincing demonstration that this is not true, at least
so .far as the Vernon Hospital is
intendent a great deal of credit is

N. Oxley and Miss A Jones came
