IS FORMED  Local Spielers Enthusiastic at First  Meeting of New Club.  Decisive action in regard to  winter sports was taken at a  meeting in Armstrong's store  last Monday evening, when a  number of local enthusiasts organized the Merritt Curling Club,  and decided upon the immediate  erection of a building to house  and shelter the local devotees of  the ancient Scotch sport during  the most rigorous of the winter  months. .;. c  The first business of the evening was the election of officers,  the honorary president and vice-  president being the first two  officers chosen. They, are respectively Hon. Martin Burrell,  M. P., and Alex Lucas, M. P. P.  The gentlemen present insisted  upon the temporary chairman  for the evening, Mr. Grimmett,  accepting the position as president of the club; though at first  he demurred, expressing the belief that someone else was more  fully entitled to the position. Mr.  Bob McDonald was selected as  one of the vice-presidents, and  the name of A. W. Strickland  was proposed as the second. He  declined, however, and upon his  motion Mr. A. N. B. Rogers was  selected for the position. G. F.  Ransome was unanimously requested to retain his temporary  position at the meeting and made  secretary-treasurer of the organization.  The executive committee chosen, of which the .senior officers  are ex-officio members, ..consists  of Messrs. Strickland, G,,B. Armstrong, B. Bewley, Frank Barnes  and Reverend Mr. Petrie,  The floodgates of memory were  bWned~when-'the-qt^B^on:of a  constitution and by-laWs dame up  . for discussion.    Mr. Bewley pro-  j duced.the constitution of the first  ec  8  DO YOU LIKE A GOOD  CUP OF TEA ?  Rossland Curling; Club, organized at the time of j the boom with  a crowded membership list. The  names of quondam heroes of the  rink were recalled, and it soon  developed that tlie majority present had been devotees���not a  few of them skilled���of the sport  for decades. Reverend Petrie  particularly is a\ player of considerable reputation in the  Boundary. It is evident that  curling develops a certain esprit  de corps which'brings the members of a club more closely together.     ..'"'"���/ 7f  Messrs. Ransome and Bewley  stated that they; had discussed  the matter of a shed to cover the  rink with H. L. Pennington and  the latter had assured them that  it; would be erected at the moderate cost bf two" hundred and  twentv-five dollars. It was decided to have this work undertaken as soon1 as possible.  Thomas Brothers; proprietors of  the steam laundry, having stated  that they would "'rent a curling  rink for the season for the sum  of thirty-three dollars, it was decided that a committee approach  them with a view to entering into an agreement' upon the subject. These gentlemen are also  erecting a skating rink adjacent  to the curling rink, and this  would provide extra space in th  event of the club', deciding upon  a bonspiel. '.  It is proposed to incorporate  with the central'* curling association and to have a team com  pete at the various  rinks in the  vicinity.     Kamloops   and   Ash  croft have  clubs,-1 and  now that  one is assured for this city it is  expected that one will be organ  ized in Nicola. * The construction  of a rink in Vancouver assures a  bonspiel in  that ��� city sometime  this winter. "  The annual' membership fee  for the local club^has. been fixed  at ten dollars, payable* on or before the first of next,'month." In  view of the fact that'the notice  of the first meeting was brief it  was decided to hold another  meeting at eight o'clock Friday  night in the board of trade  rooms, when a list of members  will be made up. It is expected  that among the miners at Middlesboro there will be a large  number of enthusiasts and there  is every indication of a large and  representative gathering.  Health Compels Withdrawl of Mayor and Reid Consents to Run.  Last week it was announced  that Mayor Eastwood would again  be a candidate for mayoralty  honours. It appears now that  his physician has ordered him to  take a three months vacation after the first of next year, so that  it is impossible for him to accept  a nomination In addition to his  health being rather poor His  Worship finds that his private  business will preclude his taking  an active part in civic administration.  Mayor Eastwood's decision at  this juncture makes it imperative  that another man.of unimpeach-  ible integrity, and with a record  for administrative ability should  enter the field. Such a one is  Alderman Fred A. Reid, chairman of the Finance Committee in  the present civic administration.  from funds derived from ordinary revenues, such as licenses  and a percentage of provincial  taxes alloted by thegovernment.  NICOLA ROAD IMPROVEMENTS  The provincial government e n  gineers have just completed surveys for the new wagon road between Granite creek and Tulameen for wiiich Quilchen ave. in the  City of Merritt is adopted as one  section. The new road follows a  water grade for the entire six  miles of its length, crossing to the  southeastern bank of the Tulameen at Coalmont by the new  bridge recently completed by the  private enterprise of the coal  company. The Quilchena road is  now practically closed east of  Nicola while the government  road builders are removing, with  the aid of high explosives, the,  larger bluffs on the dangerous  turns, and widening the highway to the standard sixty-six  feet.. This work will be completed by about the 1st of December, and will leave a fine road  along the lake shore.  Try  a Pound of one of our  New Brands  BROOK BOND  Half Pound Tin 25c.   Pound Tin 50c.

Samuel Haughton Graves of  Chicago, president of the White  Pass and Yukon Route, was found  dead in his bed at the Aylmer  Appartments, at Ottawa on Monday. He was here on business  before the Railway Commission.  His death was due to heart failure. His body is being forwarded to Chicago.  The late Mr. Graves was very  ^well���known=in=transportation  circles in Vancouver. For some  years he had made a practice of  going north each summer to inspect the rail and river routes of  his company and always on these  occasions passed a few days in  this city. During the past year  or so he had spent much time at  Ottawa in connection with applications to the Rai 1 way Commission  for a reduction of freight rates  on the White Pass route.  NICOLA VALLEY COAL & COKE  For the past week the Nicola  Alderman Reid is well- known  and very popular in the community.    Aside altogether fronfthe  fact that in a brief period he has  built up a splendid business,   his  conduct -of the affairs   of   the  city;-as chairman of the Finance  Committee, has marked him as a  man in whom the   people may  place    the    fullest    confidence.  While the News, during-theearly  part of the year, deemed it best  to oppose him on 'a certain question of importance, our opposition  was based upon  nothing but a  difference of opinion in a matter  in which everyone is entitled  to  his own  convictions.     We still  maintain that we were correct in  our attitude; but we do not for  one moment permit that to ob-  scuae our perception of the fact  that Alderman Reid is one who  will act always according to his  honest convictions.  When the city was first incorporated the News pointed put  that^owingto'anobseurityinthe  wording of a certain section in  the Municipal Clauses there  would be difficulty in financing  the city in such a manner as to  ensure that there would be sufficient money to execute certain  very necessary public .improvements. In brief the difficulty  was this : The Act gives all  necessary directions in regard to  taxation based upon a city assessment roll, but it fails to state  what steps are legal for a  city which is . incorporated  after January 1st in any year.  MIDDLESBORO CLUB DANCE  Last Saturday evening, in spite  of the inclemency of the weather,  quite a number journeyed to  Middlesboro to attend the bi-  weekiy dance at the Middlesboro  Club.  The music provided for the  evening was excellent, and a  novel feature was introduced  into the two-steps. Heretofore  it has been customary for the  gentlemen to dance a two-step  from the time the first notes  come from the orchestra until  the music has ceased, Under  the practice introduced at Saturday night's.dance any gentleman  may tap the gentleman dancing  oh the shoulder, when the latter  relinquishes his partner. If the  dance be long enough the first  partner"*has��� ^"-chance" tb even  matters up by returning the  compliment.' Itis a novel feature here, and one that on the  evening in question proved decidedly popular.    .  About midnight a light supper  was served, after which dancing  was resumed and continued well  into the small hours. Mr. Hodgson proved himself, .a���clever-  master-^of-" the" floor. Messrs.  Daniels, P. Smith and Bullen  furnished the music for the evening.  Among those present were  Mesdames L. Kirby, Myers, D.  McPhail, Graham (2), and Mackenzie; Misses McNeil, M. Mc-  Inulty, McKenzie, Macpherson  and Irvine; also Mestrs. Perdue.  Hodgson, Griffiths, King, Pierce,  Sherwood, Graham, - G. McKenzie, Kirby, Brown, Smith (2),  Simpson, Bullen and Daniels.  These dances are proving very  popular and will be continued on  alternate weeks at the club, save  only on such occasions as  Promoter Barnes to Provide Another Slugfest Next Week  Next Thursday night in Menzies   Hall two ���pugilists, Thomas'  and Bracken  by namp, will mix;  matters   for   ten   rounds.    The  purse   held   out is  seventy-five  aud twenty-five per cent of the  gate receipts, to the winner  and  loser respectively. Frank Barnes,  who gave such satisfaction atthe  Wisconsin Kid vs. Kid Smith bout  some time ago, will act   as   referee on Thursday night.  Short bouts between minor athletes will precede the main event  the name of the contestants being  as yet unknown. Both the men  in the main event have good records and their swatfest should  prove interesting, more particularly as they are accustom< d to  fighting under straight Marquis-  of Queensberry rules. The first  preliminary will, be brought off  promptly at nine o'clock. .The  admission fee will be the same  as at the last exhibition.  The records of the men are as  follows:  THOMAS  Wynn at San Francisco, 15  rounds, won.  R. Williams at Oakland, Cal.,  10 rounds, drawn.  W. Stainton at Sacrcmento, ]2  rounds, lost on a i'ou'.  A. Mortimer fit Yakima, 4  rounds, knock out.  BRACKEN . ...J  F. Hollar.d at Rossland,.. 1C  rounds, drawn.  B. Mullen   at   Edmonton,    9 -  rounds, knock out.

Already a large number of tickets  have been sold and there is every  prospect of a most successful-.af-  fair.    The. ladies-ofr.the "society ���  are. making" elaborate  prepara-  tions-forthe'sale and dance and  will do everything possibletoassure an enjoyable evening forail  concerned.  1  Coke Company's Now, a city council may not tax  upon [an assessment urder  such circumstances ��� unless  definite authority is given in the  act under which it is incorporated. Even where the meaning  of a section may be ambiguous  the council and city solicitor  have no power to interpret such  a-section as them may deem advisable. Hence, in the case;of  this city, ijt.has,bsen impossible  for the council to borrow from a  bank, or-from any other source,  the .money, r necessary for the  execution of certain improvements. As it is, however, the  council have managed to make  quite: extensive   improvements  Valley Coal &  miges at Middlesboro have been  averaging nine hundred and  fifty tons output of coal per  diem. The coal washing machine  recently installed and which  wor* ed satisfactorily for a short  time was temporarily out of  commission this week on account of the cold spell. The  heating apparatus vvas riot quite  ready when the snap came, so it  was impossible to wn.sh the coal  in zero weather. Now that the  weather h;.s ehanyed tie looting apparatus vs ill be yut into  working order ar d washing resumed for the balance of the  winter.  might interfere with a public or  charity affair of greater importance.  CHIEF BROWN RESIGNS  Chief of Police R. S. Brown  has tendered his resignation to  the Police Commissioners, The  News regrets that Mr. Brown  has seen fit to resign inasmuch  as he was a faithful and capable  officer. Constable Alex Strang  is acting chief of police. The  commissioners meet in regular  session on the 22nd of this  month, when the question of a  successor to Chief Brown will be  considered. Provincial constable  Tom Smith, of Spences Bridge,  has put in an application for appointment to the force. William  McNeil, a member of the Victoria  police force for eleven years, is  also an applicant.  LYTTON PROSPEROUS  J. A. McDonald, proprietor of  the Victoria Rooms, returned  Lytton, where, in partnership  with Hugh Gillis, he is running  a cigar and billiard and pool parlour, early this week. He reports  that business is brisk in the  mainline city and that everyone  is optimistic as to the progress of  construction work. Already most  of the loose rock grading is near-  ing completion and excellent pro-  gressns=beingTnade���on-ihetuny^  ��els and rock cuts.  Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Millar were  bereaved by the death of their  infant'daughter last Sunday afternoon. Rev. Petrie officiated  at the funeral. The sympathy  of their many friends go out to  the family in their sad bereavement.   ''-'���  KAMLOOPS GETS CONVENTION.  At the closing session of the  convention of school trustees on  Friday the following officers  were elected: President, W. E.  Flumerfelt; vice-president, J. M.  Wright, Armstrong; secretary-  treasurer, S. Robinson, South  Vancouver; executive, A. R.  Stacey of North Vancouver, Geo.  H. Stevens of South Vancouver,  and J. J. Dougan of Vancouver.  Kamloops was decided upon as  the place for the next convention.  Nelson and Victoria were candidates, but Kamloops won by a  substantial majority.  COMMITTEE AND COMPANY  The committee appointed to  discuss the question of a franchise  with the local electric lighting  company met the officers of the  company in the Board of Trade  rooms on Thursday evening. No  definite conclusions were arri ved  at, and it is probable that another  meeting will be held before the  committee report back to the  city council. ^sfe-T-.-M^WS VI-i-aK"*^ r-TSfri^fc-i^^Usafl :".',.-St?-1 -^/J^"--*yTJ,-H-,is;wr;--=?rJv-ri"B'^UBfS-Jiae^--^.fteyvV^ -j.^Kr^T*-- J"P :^��'Vlryv*��Sf^^--��.J._.--w- riw.,W;H.;.-��',,'l^ iVlA-'J^vtb." 1-- .-^  .'-���--*i'.-i*jkii'*w _ - *.-* -.*-��� ,l -,��� ��? - m,lt",'a"1, ~ "^ "���   *nTV "   ��� - vst���     !���_ -���"'���i t.*"-Jia ^- ��-f.-.**��>���_�� t  - '** '���,'^"JT-" m*  ������"���'��� I*c_.?,r'** l"1-.--  -ir-1 ���z.v "���Tar* - "��".i    -i*r     **��� '����ift��i' *t- ��� ��iBl.M ���*;��������� r-E"r."l y_ .*aii;*'������ ��*  'J.i    -rf-L_.  ; -,T fajTY^I   -���.-- -. . ��r��. ��� -  ���.-���..!.-  ....g.w*.-*-    ,"frt"i    ii  -fc*r nuniTr--n lWr.riirnfBi-rr ii ir-   ���-*���*-* ..v.^  THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Friday, November 17,   lit 1  E��ablishedl817.

MASS   MEETINGS  Government by, for and of the  people at times presents some interesting situations; not the least  interesting of which, perhaps,  was that at the mass meeting  held in the Sunshine Theatre last  Tuesday evening, to consider-  as the handbills spread broadcast  the day before indicated���"the  action of the police commissioners" in suspending for thirty  days a certain city official.  The meeting was called to order at an early hour, a significantly early hour, the more reasonable citizens are inclined to  think. But it afforded an excellent illustration of how a small  clique may work up a false sentiment to further their own ends  by appealing to the best instincts  of mankind; at the same time  endeavouring to arouse the worst  passions of which human nature  is capable. We have no hesi ta-  tion in denouncing it as a dirty  piece of business from beginning  to end, and to express our utter  contempt for those responsible  for the whole disgusting business.  The history of the case is interesting, A rumor became current about two weeks ago, to the  effect that a crime had been attempted. Whatever may have  been the facts of the case, as far  as the public were concerned, it  was but a rumor. There was no  arrest. There was no prosecution. It was freely authoritatively stated that the person  most affected wished for no  plublicity; we have ourselves, in  fact, seen a duly sighed and  witnessed statement in which it  was stated that there was absolutely no criminal intent on the  part of the person accused. We  ourselves were out of the city  when the alleged offence was reported to have been committed.  Naturally we were anxious to  ascertain the facts of the matter,  and accordingly made, as thorough an investigation as possible. ��� '"  Confusion, chaos and rumors.  Everything was rumored. All  direct evidence from an authoritative source was contradicted  from the same source. The more  we investigated the more confused we became. So we maintained silence.  At a meeting of the police  commissioners some time ago  Chief Brown was suspended for  having been under the influence  of   liquor.    The   commissioners  hadlihe admission of this official  that such had been the ease on a  certain date, so the evidence was  absolute. In view of other rumors this official tendered his  resignation.  Now rumors and charges are  never proof. It is the cur who  starts and fans popular excitement by urging the correctness  of defamatory and serious allegations. It is always difficult  to trace vague stories. The commissioners believe that there was  a preponderance of British subjects in the city, they being  British subjects themselves, and  accordingly, acting in the interests of the most cherished tradition of the Empire, fair play,  they refused to permit him to  resign. In that they acted as  men of honesty and fairness.  It was stated last Tuesday  evening���shouted would be a  more fairly descriptive word, as  it was a torrid meeting���that the  mass meeting was non-political.  Perish the thought! B-r-r-r-r-t!  Who would dare to impugn the  noble and lofty motives of those  who organized the meeting!  Away vile slave! Hie thee to  thy lamps and .polish them !   Do  anything, but never, oh! never,  never suggest that the chairman  of the meeting was inspired by  anything but the highest, divinely altruistic spirit l.Eheu !  Let us consider the matter.  Harold Greig (this;is free advertising) has stated that he is a  candidate for mayor. Does not  the densest understand what a  lever to a boldly noble and lofty  candidate it would be if he could  succeed in indicting the present  civic administration on ethical  grounds ?  The meeting was not political?  A candidate for the chief magistracy personally distributes handbills calling the meeting. /  The meeting was not political?  ���The candidate for the mayoralty when confronted by a speaker with the accusation that the  alleged statement of a certain  woman was not an affidavit endeavored to read from another  sheet and still make his bluff  good with the preponderance of  fairminded people at the meeting.   The speaker was ourselves.  Surely there is something  peculiar actuating the chairman  of the meeting when, as he was  forced to admit on the platform  on Tuesday night, he had to procure an alleged affidavit at the  eleventh hour to bolster up his  case ! He admitted that he had  secured this statement, which  may or may not have been true,  on Monday. Then, when challenged to read the alleged oath  accompanying the document, he  tried to out-talk us, pleading to  those present that we were delaying matters. Why suddenly  nervous about the matter ? That  little piece of red paper stuck on  the corner made the document  beautifully legal looking���at a  distance���which fwas as hear as  the people in the hall could get  to it !  Surely if everything, as a few  of his supporters contended, was  being done in a noble cause there  should be no need to dodge and  squirm when questioned about  the principal document he produced.  If the meeting were non-political in character why did not the  chairman try and preserve order  and a fair hearing for those opposed to him?. There are two  sides to every'^question. And  when the chairman prated about  a matter of honour why did he  not think whether he was acting  fairly to his opponents or not?  If those responsible for the  meeting had no ulterior motives  actuating them why did they not  quietly appoint a committee to  interview the commissioners? If  the citizens had not been worked  on until some became positively  frenzied do you think that they  would have acted so unfairly as  in the instance under discussion.  Though the average manhad  no opportunity to observe the  forces at work, we believe that  even the actions of the chairman  at the meeting were a revelation.  If citizens privately disapprove  of certain matters they may go  to those whom they think are in  error, personally, and none will  protest. When, however, people  endeavor to arouse the worst  passions of which man is capable  we think it time to call a halt. .  The   mayoral   campaign    has  commenced. MiyGreig^has play-  ed his first tune. Let us see who  wiil dance to it on January 1st.,  1912.  A DEDICATION OF A BOOK  TO A LADY.  'Tis day.  I see you smile.  I hear your voice.

Even the Lord,  We're told, does  Not love a Grouch  But he must love home builders,  judging from the contented feeling the ownership of a home  gives and the usual prosperity  that besets most people who  start out in life with a hearth of  their own. This home building  custom is one that never will die  out because it has so many advantages and means so much to  the nation, and the sooner you  decide to build the sooner you  will find yourself growing optimistic and happy. We have  worked hand in hand with a good  many home builders, aud while  the lumber alone that we sold  them was enough to make any  man happy, we're inclined to  allow some credit for their over-  excess yf joy to that independent  feeling a home brings.

Kennedy &  Cunningham  SOCIAL EVENING  The Merritt Social and Dramatic Club members assembled  in the Parish Hall last Tuesday  evening for the purpose of holding a social evening. In all about  fifty members of the club were  present and the evening passed  quickly in various games. A  light supper was served shortly  before eleven o'clock, after  which those present danced.  When midnight came the party  broke up.  President Marriott, assisted by  Miss Bertha McGoran and Mr,  C. H. Parkinson, proved herself  a capable manager of th�� various  amusements.

The renter not only loses the  advantages already mentioned  but he contributes his labor and  money to the improvement, upkeep and beautifying of another's property and is deprived in  this way of investments that  would be for his own benefit if  he owned the property. Most  persons labor to give a good appearance to the house and  grounds of their residence  whether they own it or not. A  large part of this labor is of permanent value to the owner and  is in effect a gift made by the  renter. Knowledge of this fact  alone often prevents the renter  from making improvements that  he otherwise would make.  The home of a family largely  reflects   its   character   and  the  house that   is   planned by  the  family and built to order can  be  made more nearly to meet that  family's needs than any house it  may casually rent.   The renter  moving from house to house always labors under difficulties in  accomodating his household furniture to the arrangement of the  rooms, and the careful woman of  the house is constantly irritated  by the inevitable misfits, which  if not endured are only cured at  the   expense of, frequent  purchases. > :  But the owning of a home carries  with it intangible benefits  not measured in: any medium of  exchange.   To the family reared  in the old homestead every room  has a history and.about the whole  house cluster memories too ten-;  der and too sacred to be expressed in words*: for after all the  world is largely governed by mat-;  ters of sentiment.    Where is the  person who would not gladly if  he could buy the old homestead  to prevent its destruction by an  owner to whom it is nothing but  an old house to-be removed to  give place to a modern structure,  The   habit   of' moving   from  place to place���and it is largely  a habit���is peculiarly American,  and it is a serious fault.    For by  that   habit   Americans   deprive  themseives of all home sentiment  a really important element in the  makeup of the well rounded out  character.

The canal, he declared,  would double the efficiency of the  navy and from that time on, one  battleship a year would suffice to  keep the American navy in the  forefront of the world's naval  powers.

OWNING A HOME  ^Nothing^is^^greater-bar^to  progress and prosperity than uncertainty. When a radical congress is in session business waits;  when crops are uncertain farmers keep their cash; when an  eKsc.'ion is pending financiers  with-hold loans. Everywhere  uncertainty causes a suspension  of activity. Relieve the uncer-  tainty.and activity is resumed and  business goes ahead.  Merely to live has its business  aspects; to hedge ones-self about  with uncertainties as to future  plans is to shut off many opportunities forfinancial advancement  and general improvement. In  no phase of existence is this uncertainty more powerful in its  effects than with respect to residence. The man who does not  know where he is to live from  year to year is like the tree that  is constantly being replanted���  he does not take root and grow  anywhere. This is so true that  ownership of real estate presumes prosperity ancj interest in local  affairs, and. lack.of one presumes  laitk ui" the other. "Besides his  own' fee!it g of uncertainty to  deter him from making further  advancement the renter has to  combat the public's presumption  THE MILK SUPPLY  Upon the recommendation of  the minister of agriculture, Hon.

It is understood that the commission, which will be appointed  immediately and forthwith enter  upon its important duties, will  include tr. C. J.

Murdoch Mclntyre, brother of  the proprietor of the Coldwater  hotel, is in the city on a visit.  He is well known here having  spent his vacation in the city this  summer.  W. R. Langstaff, deputy postmaster was taken ill with pleurisy  on Friday evening. During his  absence his place was taken by  Miss Seaton. The latter had  severed her connection with the  post office last week, but will re-  rume her occupation until Mr,  Langstaff has quite recovered,  this is his first winter in the valley and it is believed that the  cold snap is responsible for his  illness,  WISDOM  Walter Langstaff has resigned  the position as assistant postmaster. His place.is taken by  W. Elliott, who was formerly on  the staff of the Coldwater hotel.  Frank Steel left for Nanaimo  on Tuesday's train.

Tingley, government road  foreman from the Tulameen, arrived in town on business last  Saturday.  Jerry Millen left for his ranch  at Aspen Grove this week. He  states that he will expend two  thousand dollars on the development of his mica properties up  the Coldwater next spring. He  is philosophic about the matter,  stating that if he spends the  money'he may strike it rich, and  should he be disappointed in his  work he will at least have the  value of the experience.  An imperturbable demeanour  comes from perfect patience.  Quiet minds cannot be perplexed  or frightened, but go on in fortune or misfortune at their own  private pace like a clock during  a thunderstorm. ���Robert Louis  Stevenson.  The man that doesn't build at  least two or three hundred castles in the air will never build  one on the ground.  Take pain out of the world, and  you take away its greatest stimulant, to the dethronement of all  its highest forms of physical,  mental and moral life. Pain is  at the bottom of all deep and high-  thinking for man's relief and cultivation.  RICH IN GOLD  The steamer Kite arrived in  St. John's Nfld., after a three  months' voyage, in which she is  supposed to have been trading in  North Labrador. Two men had  chartered the Kite for this voyage. They were S. S. Elmsley,  of Ottawa Ontario, and Richard  White, of St. John's. One of the  sailors on the Kite was on shore  leave, and in a mellow moment  exhibited a three-ounce nugget  of almost virgin gold, which, ^ he  said, he had dug out of a vein  with a pocket-knife during the  voyage of his vessel. .>  As a result it has been learned  that the voyage was a prospect,  which is reported to have shown,  the great wastes of upper Labrador and Baffin's Land to be a  gold bed far richer than the Klondike or Yukon.  Closer inquiry developed that  the return cargo of the Kite, as  shown by her entry at the Customs House, was five tons of  mineral samples. The placer  stuff was a quantity of gravel  dug out of the rivers and dry  beds in mountain Valleys of Baffin's Land, which averaged a  quarter of an ounce of gold to a  pound of pannings the richest  find that man has known since  the days of the scattered pockets  of California.  Elmsley and Smith refused to  say anything about their discoveries, or to tell how they first  explored and prospected over the  country where they went back to  gather samples of ore, quartz  and gold-bearing sands. It was  in a part of this unknown land  that Hubbard, the daring explorer, with a well-equipped expedition, lost his life.  The Kite expedition went as  far north as Pond's Inlet, but the  gathering ice blocked their voyage twenty miles further north  to the Elk River, which Elmsley  and Smith were trying to gain  to claim the wealth the land there  had shown them. ;  The two men have obtained an  option on one of the larger sealing steamers for a trip next  spring.  Notice  The regular meeting of the  Police Commission will be held  in the City Hall at 2 p. m.,  November 22nd, 1911.  I. EASTWOOD,  Chief Commissioner of Police.  Dated Nov. 17, 1911.  CHAMP CLARK'S CULTUS  Quite a little discussion   has  beeri caused by the remarks of  one Beauchamp -* Clark,   speaker  of the House of Representatives,  at Washington, at Fremont, Nebraska. "Nine tenths of the people  of this country favour the annexation of Canada." He said. And  added:  ' 'I don't-care who hears  me say it.   I'am willing to make  this proposition: You let me run  for president on a platform calling  for the annexation of;Canada,  insofar as this country can accomplish that end,  and let President Taft run against me, opposing annexation.   Why,  I would  carry every state in the union  nation!"  It will be recalled that at the  time of the debate in Congress  upon the Reciprocity Bill Clark  stated, with many flowery adjectives, superlatives and exclamations, that he hoped to see the  day when the Stars and Stripes  would float over the entire North  American continent. He was  called to task about it by the  papers of'tKFUnitM^StatesnalTd;  retracted his statements with the  assertion that he did but jest.  Now he reiterates his statements.  This leads to some speculation  upon the type of man who is  speaker of the House of Representatives. What kind of a man  is he?  First he makes a speech. Then  he denies that he meant what he"  said. Then, later he repeats his  sentiments. It look a as though  he might be a liar. He is the  most prominent figure in Congress, and at the most dangerous  point in international diplomacy  he makes a faux pas. His last  noteworthy speech arouses resentment throughout the English  speaking world on account of its  bombastic note. It rings with  the note of the what-was-thought  dead-and-gone anti-British stum-  porator.  What a pity it is that the new,  clean element in American statesmanship should suffer a setback  at the hands of a charlatan.  Education is not what is put  into the student���it is what the  student is made capable of giving  out.
