wore bandied across the crowded little
court room at Penticton, Tuesday and
Wednesday ol last week, during, the
trial of Richard Chapman Hunter.of
Osoyoos, ancl formerly school teacher
at Bridesville, on the charge of wound-
hig Alan*'P. Eddy, customs officer of
Biidesville wiih intent to disable him,
a trial which resulted in Hunter being found guilty on the lesser count
of inflicting actual hodily harm. '
It appeared that as a result of a
series of complicated financial transactions  between  the  two, -Eddy  had
joined   in a  note  for  $900  given  by
Hunter in purchase of Mr. Derosier's
store at Osoyoos.   This note fell to be
paid at the end-of this month.' Eddy's
story was. that learning from Hunter
that he intended to leave the country,
he^   insisted   that - provision  be   first
made with Mr, Derosier"for this note,
'jut Eddy would not go to Osoyoos to
-see Deiosier unless   certain  that  he
was there. Accordingly he met Hunter by appointment on Thursday-afternoon, Dec. 2.   Hunter told Eddy that
be had just learned from. Arnott, the
stage driver, that Derosier was coming in to Osoyoos that afternoon an>l
wanted   Eddy   to   go   to-Osoyoos at
once.     Eddy   said   he   would   rather
have the meeting at Oroville and for
Hunter to bring Derosier there ne;:t
morning.   That evening about.8 p.m.
Hunter went to see Eddy at Mr. Chart-,
ton's.place and told him that he had
just got a letter from Vanette of Oroville which made it necessary for him
lo  go' to  Wenatchee  next morning;
that he could not be,hack.for over a
week and perhaps never.   He repeat-.

Starts New Level on
Spotted Horse Mine
Work commenced a few days
ago on what will be known as the
main level of the Spotted Horse
mine. The ground- has been
leveled and the drills are cutting
their way into the' face of the
tunnel. Reports from this mine
are very, encouraging as there is
a particularly fine showing of ore
in the upper tunnel.
the way back, Hunter persuaded, Eddy to turn out his dash light, later
he turned,arid saw Hunter with up-'
lifted right hand. Hunter pretended
to.be pointing to the ribes in the top.
On reaching Observation point again
"Hunter struck Eddy on the top right
hand side of the'head inflicting a deep
wound through his cap about an inch
long from which the blood poured.
Eddy jammed on the break, killing
the engine,-and grabbed Hunter's foot
as he tried to escape. ' The latter
kicked himself free cracking the glass
of the windshield. Hunter ran down
car and managed to drive home where
Mr. and Mrs.' Charlton.'-'tended hiss
wound, and sat up'with him for several .hours through a; bad; heart at:
tack., Vanetta testified he,had sent
no such letter, 'and; Arnott that he had
no recollection of, seeing Hunter tliaV
day at all, and had given no such information about Derosier. \
,. Above was theCrown Case,; and Mr.
H: "W,~"R.""���"-Moore of,*:*Greenwood who
appeared for the Crown, admitted to
Judge Brown; who tried the case,-that
if the story were true it meant that
Hunter had deliberately sought to lure
Eddy to his death.
Hunter's story differed in 'many important points. He denied saying he
had,had a letter form Vanetta or that
Arnott had said anything about Derosier. The latter was wont'to visit
Osoyoos the first of the month to get
his rent, he had told Eddy that there-
Core he would likely be at Osoyoos,
He had to' go to Wenatchee to dispose
of wood he had bought from'the Cud-
worths ancl the two had to leave early
Dec. 3, hence the hurry. They had
not stopped at all on the way down
and lie did not want his wife to see
him at Osoyoos because she had told
him to have nothing to do with Eddy.
He dier not refer to any of the other
incidents mentioned by Eddy, but
said that on reaching. Observation.
Eddy stopped the engine and they both
got into an argument about their respective liabilities under the note,
Eddy made.a remark .about his wife
which he resented, and Hunter hit
Eddy on the jaw. Eddy *was standing
with one foot on the running board
and his hand on the. door, and fell
sideways onto the ground where he
remained an appreciable time. He
struck with his fist and Eddy's thrust
having hit his head against the huh
cap or a rock. Eddy got up, said
something about a gun and reached
for the car. Hunter ran behind the
car and Eddy drove off. In cross examination Hunter admitted that there
were stories in circulation about him
in connection with a���hay fire on hia.
ranch in November 1925, and he
thought that Eddy was.trying to work
up a case against him.

Canada s Diamond Jubilee Y
Canada enters the new year with an bright prospects as ever faced, the
Dominion. There is not one dark cloud on llie national horizon. AU reputable authorities arc in agreement in predicting that the steady progress and
general betterment in conditions which marked 1926 will be continued on a
still larger jscalc in 1927. The heads of all our chief banking ancl influential
Institutions,.""the executives of our railways, our captains of industry and
commerce, our political leaders, all foresee great advancement for Canada,
throughout the new year.
There are substantial grounds Cor their optimism. Apart from seasonal
unemployment which, of necessity, is always prevalent during the winter
mouths, employment generally remains at a high level. Nor arc there any
lowering clouds on tho labor horizon In the shape of strikes or other industrial upheavals. Business in all lines has heen good, and promises to be
better. The foreign lrade of Canada, and the balance of that trade in favor
of tho Dominion, steadily increases. Building activities, and works of con-
struct'on ol many kinds, which showed remarkable expanson In 1926, give
every sign of attaining new high levels in thc now year.
Depression and lack of national confidence wliich at times have afflicted
tlu- people of Canada are conspicuous by their absence as the Dominion"entors
upon the sixtieth year of Confederation. Coupled with the1 improved economic
situation, tho decisions of the recent Imperial Conference conferring a new
salus upon lhe Dominion, have had the effect of causing Canadians to hold
their heads up and.of giving lliem a now confidence, a greater national priile,
ii new sense of importance  and power.
It now remains for the citizens of Canada to grasp the opportunities before thorn, and by all means Within their power give impetus to the forward
movement. With Federal elections behind us for some years our Parliamentarians'can well afford to devote their undivided attention'to the solution of
those problems and questions which call for constructive action. Parliament
should, begin the celebration of.the jubilee of Confederation Dy being a
business Parliament rather than a partem one. It can do much toward
relkation of the fond hopes of all Canadians for 1927 and can sot a high
standard forall to follow.
Experience has proven that reductions in'taxation, result in an almost
immediate, stimulation to business, followed by increased prosperity. The
United'States has proved it and Canada experienced, it"'in.1.92G. The Covern-
jneut is pledged lo a policy of further tax reductions in 1927, and it is hoped
the Finance Minister will show real courage in this respect and go the full
limit consistent with sound finance and. tlio revenue requirements of the
'���country, at the same time bearing in mind that lower taxation, will so stimulate business as to produce large revenues, A courageous policy iu fax reduction will create still greater confidence.       *
Coupled with tax reduction, aud business-like economy in the administration of public affairs, and energy in further developing the export trade of
the Dominion, a far-reaching and comprehensive immigration policy which
���will result in bringing to this Dominion that increased-population which is
one of its most urgent requirements, will go a long way to making .1927 the
banner year of Confederation. 7
. Tho new year will see llie * Hudson's Bay railway Hearing completion,
.thus realizing one of the long cherished dreams of the West. It is to be
hoped the new year will likewise witness .the .inaugural ion of policies calculated to.aassist the Maritime Provinces to solve their particular problems aud
place the far eastern section of the Dominion on the highroad.; to indiisirial
and agricultural rehabilitation and prosperity. Ouly through the development
and prosperity of the extremes'*of Confederation, can*contentment, the creation of a sound national pride and sentiment, peace and progress bo brought
to the whole Dominion. It will be worth almost .any sectional sacrifice lo
bring this .about. It is a worth-while work to occupy the best minds-and
energies .of the Canadian people in their year of jubilee..-
Ami inasmuch, as united national action is but the'&.mu total of individual
"opinion and unity of purpose it behooves each ciiizeif of Canada to rake a
broad view, of Canadian questions,. Uv" cast.*'aside -bispartisan and sectional
spectacles, and -with clear vision apply himself to".the patriotic, task of helping Caiiada along the road of high destiny so Manifestly markedout for it.
Fouglit Against Kitchener
Sudanese Chief is Dead at Age of
The death nt Wadi Haifa, of Osman
Digna, the Madhi firebrand in tho Sudan wars of the eighties and nineties,
was reported in a Cairo despatch to
fhe Exchange.Telegraph.
Emir Osman Abubekr Digna, or
"Osman the Ugly," as he was nicknamed, lived to be moro than ninety
years of age/notwithstanding all the
battles he had fought. Ills origin has
always been a matter of doubt, whether a pure native or of mixed native-
European breed. He was originally a
slave dealer and joined the Dervish
M'uhdl in 1S83, when the latter revolted against the British.
Osman Digna became the Mahdi's
right-hand man and fought Kitchener
repeatedly; he also routed the Italians
at Erythrea in 1S9G. The British captured and imprisoned him In 1900, "and
after keeping him for twenty-two years
in a cell allowed him to reside at Wadi
Haifa under supervision.

Conslipated children can find

Optimistic references to business
conditions in Canada wero made at
the 109th annual general meeting of
the Bank of Montreal by the president, Sir Vincent Meredith, and by the
general manager,'Sir Frederick .���'Williams-Taylor.
A broad survey of trade conditions,
declared Sir Vincent, finds much to
hearten and little to discourage. In
almost every department of business,
activity is greater and profits higher.
This finds practical demonstration in
the growth of-the pulp and paper" industry, the exploitation of'"''our min-
oral resources and the harnessing of
our enormous water power I'esourcea.
Describing present conditions in
Canada, the president drew the con^)
elusion that' the Dominion "has
emerged from the shadow of ������restricted business, unsatisfactory earnings
and indifferent balance sheets and the
trend of business �� now distinctly
upward iri practically all lines of
trade. I cannot seo any indication
that this period of prosperity is-soon
coming to an end. I believo the underlying conditions are sound and the
future can be viewed with confidence."
Sir Frederick Williams-Taylor, in
his .address, reviewed the various
services rendered by the-bank in the
interests of ,the general public and
that of Canada, such as the crop reports during the crop season, the
monthly business analysis and the
various pamphlets issued to farmers
iu Canada and in foreign couniries.
In connection with the attraction
Canada holds for foreign capital he
mentioned 'three 'facts.about Canada:
Firstly it is pointed out that less than
50 years ago tho ..three Prairie provinces were uninhabited. Today ou
the fertile plaius is a population of
two million .prosperous people, with
millions of rich and idle- acres awaiting settlers. In 1900 the value of the
field crops of these provinces is given
at 32. million dollars; now it is close to
700 millions. This, the report says, is
in. tho nature of a sure and rapidly rising dividend.
Secondly, although Canada is known
as an agricultural counlry, it may not*
be realized 'abroad that the gross
value of our manufactured products in
1924, the last obtainable figures, was
$2,(595,000,000, -nearly twice the agricultural production for the same year.
Thirdly, such progress has been
made in harnessing water power, that
Canada.'is now the second country, per
capita in this respect in the world.
"When/developments now under way
are complete, Canada will have In use

Receives Favorable Comment
An-influential Old Couutry monthly,
��� known to tlie trade as "Groceiy," has
8omo interesting things-to. say, about
Canadian produce exhibited at tho recent London Dairy Show.   One of the
judges, Mr. H.- S. Dudley, of Messrs
Warren   and   Sons,   Ltd.,   remarks:
,   "There was a large entry of Colonial
salted butler���about 90 exhibits���and
fhe general standard of excellence was
very   good.     Particularly   noticeable
wero the Canadian samples, -12 boxes,
most of which were very hue butter."
On the same page, uuder the heading "Canadian. Bacon Outlook," it 'is
stated that: "Tlie best evidence bf the
tiuallty of Canadian bacon is the increasing popularity it is enjoying in
certain sections ot the most particular
trade.    Within recent years,  shrewd
buyers, havo recognized the uniformity
oJ the best brands both with regard
to type, quality and care, all of which
insure profit to'their business. Tliey
also recognized how similar it  was
to the best bacon that was offered in
the market by any of the competing
countries; and that the most sensitive
palate would accept it as suitable.   "
"These results arc (he outcome of
efforts in Canad\a, by the Federal De-
P'irtment of Agiiculture, lhe_ packers
and the ��� producers.   The two former
havo full"knowledge  of the require.-
ments of tho.British trade, and the
latter are.quite readily improving tho

Rabbits Suffer From Plague
Bats Have  Peculiar Sense to   Direct
,    -        Their Flight l
"Blind a.s a bat" is an expression
not In accordance with the fact, to
comment   solemnly   on     a     natural
enough- bit of shortcoming in popular
speech.    The- cinature has perfectly
good eyes, though in most cases very
small ones; but ii is likely that they
depend very little on eyesight   either
to fiud their way about or in chasing
insects, and most of 'their  time���except in the case of the fruit-caters���
ia spent in darkness.   Mosl bats frequent caverns the deepest recesses of
which are never visited by a single
ray of the weakest light, and hang,
night after nighl, on the same small
cornice or ledge with all the assurance or birds going to roost in the
daylight.   About (the   close   of   thc
eighteenth century, -the   Italian   naturalist   and   experimenter,   Spallan-
zani, performed his  classical experiments with bats and' discovered that
the power of controlled and directed
flight was   independent   of   eyesight".
Spallanzani  closed  tiie  eyes of 'bats
with varnish and liberated the creatures in rooms crossed and recrossed
with  fine  silk  threads.  The  blinded
bat's flew freely back ancl, forth  between  the  threads  avoiding 'contact
with the obstructions, and absolutely
certain of directions.   These and similar studies have led r0 the belie! that
the ability to find    their ' way   when
blinded ,or in Ihe pitch-dm-kness of a
cavoni, resides in the great development of a tactile sense���a delicacy of
sensitiveness-,io   touch,   pressure   or
vibration, beyond anything known in
other mammals.   The   -peculiar   outgrowth on the face and ears of bals

made in Toronto by Major Fred-Brewster of Banff, Alberia, lhat,the rabbits
there aro dying off from a ""seventh
year" sickness.   Dr. Seymour Iladwen,
zoologist and biologisn of tho University of Saskatchewan, states that he
has received no such information I'rom
his correspondsnls   fhroughout    Canada. At the same time, trappers from
the  country  north of Prince Albert,
state  that rabbits there  are scarce,
ancl that coyotes, whoso food tliey are,
and which will not eat the sick ..ones,
are staying in thc back lands.   From
a number of   country    points   conic
statements that rabbits have so far
been plentiful and that tliey'are being
used extensively as food..   Apparently
the plague has not. spread'thro..mi the
AVest as yet.
